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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2011
On tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours medium to dark clear brown with a slightly reddish tint and a relatively small beige head. Nose is complex sugars, wood, and rum. Some dark fruits and cherry skins. Flattish palate, and the sugars just taste, well, sweet at the end of the day.

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.

jimhilt (2429) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pours a two finger khaki head that vanishes leaving no lace. Very dark brown color, yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Brown sugar nose and flavor is molasses and brown sugar but not cloying. Higher ABV is hidden. Expensive at $9.99 for a 500ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

Bottle at SIBF. Red cola brown, minor head. Sweet brown sugar and rum. Heary aged feel, cola, tobacco, sugar cane. Aged dark rum. Bit off on feel. good, tart finish.

Maverick34 (2357) - 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.

suprchunk (2342) - 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.

craftycarl21 (2254) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draught at Churchkey. Deep red pour. The nose and flavor are bursting with sweetness; raisin, molasses, apple, brandy.... apple brandy..... plum, candied sugars, and caramel. The flavor is much of the same, but it’s a bit too much; cloying, and syrupy sweet. Ehhh.

Dark amber with a small brown head. Sweet and fruity tones. Malt, fruit and sugar. Full body with a long, bitter sweet finish.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Dark garnet pour with a small off white head. Huge dark fruit and bread in the nose lead to a flavor full of raisin, date, molasses, caramel, and fig. Massive sweetness- just too much for me. Thick cloying palate with low carbonation.
