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.

callmemickey (4115) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark pure-brown body. Just the faintest bit of light khaki colored foam. No lacing. S: Tons of caramel, brown sugar, a pinch of molasses and rum-like fruit sweetness. T: Like the nose, this is one healthy blast of sugary sweetness. Surprisingly, despite the clear abundance of residual sugars, I didn’t find it to be cloying at all. There is a nice cane-rum like flavor that brings some M: Given the sweetness, the medium body, gentle carbonation and smooth finish, helped keep any cloying vibe away. Impressive. O: A robust assault, but ultimately lacking the depth and complexity to be a mainstay.

CanIHave4Beers (3877) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a small head that goes away fairly bit of ease.

The aroma is molasses and cinnamon up front. Some brown sugar, pear and fruit cake show more prominently as it warms.

The flavor is spicy and sweet, but not over-sweet... really. Rich flavors of molasses and dark fruit along with brighter cherry and pear fruit notes. The more it warms the more the soft nuttiness comes through, which is really really nice.
