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.

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.

JaBier (6503) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle sample at the 12% tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 12/15/11. Pours hazy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sugary caramel, toffee, tobacco, molasses and chocolate. Toffee and caramel flavor with a chocolatey, roasty finish. Very sweet, but unique and enjoyable.

caesar (6379) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2011
Bottled @ home. Clear reddish brown color, short head. Aroma of rich sugar, some ripe fruit, caramel malts, raisin. Only slight spicy from the yeast. Taste is quite sweet, bit dry, slight nutty. The belgian yeast is obvious, but not overwhelming and lets the sugary notes shine, the way they probably intended to be. Carbonation is quite low for a belgian style, which is perfect for me, coz usually they blow up in your stomach. Despite the sticky tooth, reasonably easy drinkable that way. Im not a fan of pretty sweet beers, but Im enjoying this one!

Strykzone (6223) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pint bottle. Dark brown with a tan active head that dissipates quickly but leaves a half inch of foam. The aroma suggest super sweetness with chocolate and alcohol. The flavor is interestingly fruity and very sweet with a different kind of sweetness that is kind of like toffee. Alcohol is tasted. This is interesting and is indeed super sweet. Some kind of hop bitterness would be a welcome addition. Not quite cloying sweetness but too close for me.

DutchDrebus (5473) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle @ home. Ruby red to brown volour with a creamy beige head. Smells malts, iron and some syruppy sweetness. Tastes quite sweet, coffee, mocca, dark chocolate, caramel. Very rich flavour. Slightly roasty also, but different than a stout. Also a bit like a quadrupel. Full body, soft carbo.
