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.

Habanero (3864) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2012
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a medium sized, short livin’ beige head. Nose of brown sugar, caramel, yeat and overriped fruit. Markedly sweet flavor with dark malt, dark, dried fruit, berries and molasses. Medium to full bodied, creamy to syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry with an alcohol touch. Goes well with a lump of good cheese.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, dried fruit, sweetness, licorice, yeast and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. The palaye is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer.

Palme (3652) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2011
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and OleR. Pours a near clear nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking bubbly head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel and heavy ripe banana. Also some hints of pure alcohol. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-wise this is really sweet with enormous amounts of banana - a bit to much perhaps? -, some plums and almost no bitterness. Like drinking fermented liquid banana-concentrate topped with caramel, brown sugar and ripe strawberries. Nice warming aftertaste. All that being said, it was not any bad flavors but one glass is enough..

daje (3469) - NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, oranges, banana, plums. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, raisin, banana with a peachy and spicy yeast finish. Pretty sweet stuff, though the taste has a nice complexity which makes this an enjoyable beer. For sharing I might add.

suprchunk (2925) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Rich, deep, mahogany colored pour. Ruby highlights. No head, no lacing. Looks flat, but there is the occasional bubble rising. Smells like caramelized sugar, raisins, malt. Taste is sweet, slight smokiness, sugary. Vanilla. Sweet syrupy mouthfeel, but not to syrupy. Not too bad. I like it, but would like it better if it was colder. Nice winter warmer.

Maverick34 (2897) - New York, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Draught. Man I don’t even know what to say about this. Poured dark, raisin rum aroma, same taste with molasses etc. Good but maybe too syrupy.

Another stellar beer from this place. I loved the blend of candy sugar, bread, caramel and spice. This one really sat well with me. I love Belgian Strongs.
