COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: This is a true story about a dedicated belgian brother who spent all his hard earned money on a all inclusive Barbados vacation to pursue a life long dream – brew an old fashion dark Belgian infused with local muscovado sugar aka Barbados sugar – luckily the outcome is a first class candy coated, full-bodied and escapist beer – the best he ever made. Halleluja.

andyhwcinc (1588) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
Enjoyed on tap as 1 oz sampler before my friends showed up at Bad Apple in Chicago, IL. Appearance like cola, huge bubbly tan head, cloudy coke like brown. Aroma mostly of sugar, light fruit, definitely has that burnt sugar smell. Taste is very interesting, extremely sweet, retains a fruit like quality that is tropical, there is a caramel like quality to it, but it doesn’t taste especially malty. The name of the beer describes the flavor pretty well. Impressive.

T - Sweet dark caramel malts, raisins, plums, and other dark fruits, Belgian yeast, clove and other spices, residual and raw sugars, and a bit of booze. M - Full bodied with moderate-mild carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, fruity, spicy, and warming finish. D - Nice and complex but well balanced. The raw sugars add some nice complexity.

bluejacket74 (1479) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
500 ml bottle with 17.07.2012 stamped on it, label says best before 2015. Served in a goblet, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, the brew smells like candy and brown sugar, dark fruit, caramel, and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like brown sugar, caramel, molasses, dark fruit, and a bit of pear. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and sticky with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, and I wouldn’t mind trying it again sometime in the future.

Yorker (1466) - Herning, DENMARK - APR 6, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a tiny off-white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet with plenty of malt, yeast, caramel, and a hint of liquorice. Flavour is malty, yeasty and slightly vinous.

trevor211 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle at SIBF. Pours a cola brown. Rum and raw sugar on the nose. Boozy sweet flavor, with some wood, a good amount of rum, and dark fruit. It has a bit of a harsh palate, though -- somewhat tinny. This was a bit of a disappointment.

gEUS (1342) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2012
500 ml bottle - pours marroon brown with glazing head and long sugary legs. Aroma of nuts, honey, iron, slight clove. Medium body with a lot of sweetness, some sharpness as well but a rather bland taste - I miss the excitement...
