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 (16483) - 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

mcberko (14103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with an amber tinge and a medium beige head. Aroma is fairly sugary, with dark fruits, brown sugar and Belgium yeast. Flavour is very similar, with brown sugar, some dark fruits and Belgium yeast all equally characterizing the taste. Despite the name of the beer, the sugary qualities are not cloying, nor out of whack. Finishes on dark fruit and sugary brown sugar notes. Medium complexity with lots of depth. Very enjoyable.
