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.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. A clear one, dark brown in color and with a beige head of moderate size. Alcohol, dark sugar, caramel and dried fruit notes on the palate. Quite burning on the tip of the tongue, with lots of sugary sweetness, as well as dried fruits and some licorice-like hints. Full-bodied and sweetish. Lasting warming and sweet finish. Overall, too sweet and alcoholic, yet I have to admin I like it quite well. 110820

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Høkeren, Cph.
Very dark mahogany red-brown with a small, light fizzy, creamy, beige head. Aroma is complex sugary, molasses, liqourice, Belgian sugar, cane sugar, light toasted caramel. Mild plums and raisins. High carbonation, fine fairly light and mild creamy palate. Flavour is sweet, sugary, cane-sugar, again some toasted caramel working its way into liqourice territory. Mild vinious with some plums and raisins. Short aftertaste. Very simple and sweet, yet still endearing.
