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.

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a hazy strawberry to jewel ruby with no head formation. Small ring of beige bubbles. Nose is pool cleaner. Small red twizzlers and starchy red candies. Volatile notes thankfully subside for sweet dark cherries and dark fruits: fruit cake, dates. Taste is nicely sweet. Sort of like Gouden Carolus Christmas with Belgian dark fruits, red licorice, mild spices and noticeable sweet rum booziness. Not bad. Reminds me a lot of Belgian Easter and Christmas beers. Gouden Carolus attenuation level. Not as sweet as I was told to expect. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (9065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2012
200ml from tap at Schouskjelleren. Mahogany coloured body, spotty lacing from a filmy layer. Malt-fruity aroma. Taste a bit like sweet jam with its malt-fruity flavour added by ripe banana and spices. Bittersweet, dried fruits to the ending. Medium bodied and pleasant (Oslo, 23.01.2012).

Bottle 500ml @ TFODRBSG11, Ulfborg
Pours dark amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, dried fruits and caramel. Taste is heavy sweet and light to medium bitter. Body is full, texture is oily, carboantion is soft.

mcberko (8691) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (8319) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2011
Small amber-brownish head, relatively stable, fed by finely, well-carbonated slightly hazy brownish red beer. Perfumed nose with almonds, marzipan, rosewater and dark brown sugar. Sweet, but less than suggested by nose and label; woody touches, and again almonds. Brown (candi or other) sugar. Bit rum-like flavours, but without the alcoholcomponent. Mineral water quality, relatively light body ~ to the ABV, well-attenuated & well carbonated. Not too sweet, thankfully. But not much else - the carbonation seems to bear most of the balance.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks troubles. Dark reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, some dark fruits, caramel, demerara sugar and nutty notes. Sweet caramelly flavor with dark fruits and a bit of chocolate. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

sebletitje (7435) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
pint bottle from DeMolen biershop. BB 17/07/2012. Too much sugar kills the sugar, this would have been a great sipper in a 33cl format. Cuivrée, col léger beige allant sur un café au lait. Arôme est sucré voire mélasse, fruits noirs; prune, figue, date, léger malt caramel/grillé. En bouche, aspect belge triple avec un profile bien fruité noir, le sucre est présent et en retrait donnant une touche de cane à sucre qui suit après les gorgées. Carbonnation est à niveau, fini est collant aux lèvres allant sur un sucre caramélisé..

olio (7344) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
50 cl bottle. BBE 2015 (the bottle had also some 2012 marking)
Pours dark ruby red colour with small head. Aroma of sweet malts, clove, grass, light caramel and sugar candy. Flavour of caramel, sweet malts, haym nuts, flour, sugar and ripe fruits. Something familiar to german beers on the nose, probably just the sweet malts.
