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.

olio (6231) - 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.

500. Pours a fairly clear dark brown with a loose light tan head that doesn’t stick around. Big molasses and brown sugar nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Molasses and brown sugar mid palate. Not too much else happening, but tasty nevertheless--balanced, and not cloying. Good beer.

laiti (5700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 2015 on the label and xx.07.2012 on the neck
Aroma is sugary with syrup, spices, candi sugar, floury caramel and hints of roastiness. Also something German-like, maybe hops? Flavour is, surprisingly, rather sweet with brown and cane sugar. Also some belgian yeast, toffee and caramel. Something plastic-like occurs at the end of the glass. The sweetness doesn’t disturb as much as I expected. However, drinking the whole bottle by myself would be a mission impossible.
