4.78/5  rDev +18.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out a rich, dark brown with just a few hints of amber into my trusty Duvel tulip. There was a nice, fluffy, tan head that persisted for quite a while and left excellent lacing.

The nose was very rich -- lots of toasted malts up front with a good hint of raisins, as well as some more subtle butterscotch and toffee on the back end. The flavor profile matched -- heavy on the toasted malts, with a nice fuity and spicy flavor. It was almost like cinnamon raising toast, but right before the bitter back end of the flavor profile kept it from being over-sweet. A very complex, delicious beer.

The mouthfeel was excellent: good body without being too thick; just enough carbonation. Maredsous 8 is one of my favorit brews; quite drinkable and always delicious.

330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 8/2014. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, toast, brown bread, molasses, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness/tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dubbel style. All around nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
