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.

sebletitje (9078) - 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..

Bottle from City Beer. Pours dark brown with a tiny beige head, mostly bubbles, and a sweet candy aroma. There is a sweet brown sugar and malt flavor with some dark fruit and a carbonated more bitter finish.

Draft. Mahogony beer with a cream colored head. Sweet caramel aroma. Sugar and caramel/toffee flavor with light yeast. Medium bodied. Sugar lingers with caramel/toffee. Needed a glass of water after this one - way too sweet.

laiti (8035) - 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.

Plovmand (7812) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle. Thanks to Faroeviking for providing! It pours brown with a creamy off white head. The aroma is yeast, brown sugar, dark fruit and candy. Sweet fruity flavour with notes of spices, yeast, caramel, sweet malt and brown sugar. Long dark fruity finish.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick, white head. Aroma of smooth brown sugar, slightly toasted malts and toffee. Very smooth flavour of toasted malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, toffee, some hops. Full bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and a long, warming, smooth and sweet finish. Overall a very smooth beer with loads of sweetness, but it doesn’t disturb here.

gyllenbock (7558) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle from Ölbutikken. Dark brown with a medium head. This reminded quite a lot of a Brown Ale. Malt, sweet and with some roasted notes. Also nuts, brown sugar and some spices. Not the most balanced of beers but ok.

after4ever (7539) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2012
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.

jredmond (7402) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Draft at The Ginger Man with Andrew. Pours a bright hazy orange with white lacing. Aroma is belgian candy, sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium with pretty much just nice sweet candied flavor dominating.
