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.

Ruby brown with a small pale head. Aroma is brown sugar, dates, maple syrup, bread & butter pudding. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, medium bodied, sweet on the palate but not overpowering, short finish. Taste is brown sugar, dates, raisins, bread & butter pudding.

Yorker (1112) - 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.

gEUS (1001) - 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...

I had this beer on draft at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore, Maryland, served in a snifter glass. The beer had a black color with a dark copper hue, with an average-sized, off-white, bubbly head with average retention, great lacing and medium cling. Its aroma featured raisin, plum, and some other dark fruit, along with toffee and candy, and a touch of earthy grain. The taste was sweet and fruity with notes of raisin, plum, and toffee, along with some sugar and candy, and a subtle, earthy sour-bitter finish. It was a creamy, full, wet beer with average carbonation and livelyness, and a thick, smooth mouthfeel.

I drink a ton of Belgian darks. this one was good but not worth what I paid for the small bottle. I know it’s an import but, I’ve paid a lot less for other imports that were better

Pretty good stuff although too expensive for the style. Nice dark pour with a decent head but no retention. Nose of dark fruit, sweet malt, and yeast. Taste follows the nose with a little candied fruit mixed in. Sweet but not cloying in the least.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2011
50 cl. bottle nicely pulled from the fridge. Pours a nicely kobber brown with a cappochino-liked head that tends to fade a little. The nose is clearly belgian inspired, and closing your eyes you clesarly see the monks filling their bottles down there. Lots of cane sugar, caramels, some cinamon and christmas spices. Finaly there is a faint hint of laqurice. The taste is very sweet - a complex sweetness, with lots of cane sugar and caramels. The palate is smooth and not that lively. Maybe a bit too sweet for my buds, but a bulls eye for my wife. This beer would be perfect to be served with hardcore cheeces. A long sweet and malty finish that stays with you all the way.
