look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a clear red-brown with thick soapy tan head, settles slowly with big chunks of lace down the glass. Smell: fig, toast, brown sugar, dates, black pepper, lightly earthy with a note of cola. Taste: toasted brown bread, hefty grain twang, fig, caramel, cherry cola, earthy and slightly nutty finish. Very nice.

From bottle dated 01 2013 at Rattle n Hum. Definite brune aroma, but not very potent. Poured to a respectable head & left a resonable lacing in the upper reaches of the glass. Texture was a bit thin but the flavor was not.

Although a tad sweet, the first impression is of umami. It has the complex aroma of prunes & (I hate to say it, but...) leather that endS up with a taste much more grounded& earthy. It taste much mor uncuous than it feels. A wonder of aroma, flavor & texture

Much smoother than the Maredsous 10, and overall very excellent in general. Tried this at a restaurant in Changsha, China and absolutely loved it. Beautiful copper color, just the right amount of head and lace and not too bitter as one might expect from 8% alcohol. No burn going down and a perfect compliment to any meal.

Favorite of the 3 so far. Crisp flavor, with a clean aftertaste. Taste not affected by flavorful dinner (ie curry/asian foods).
