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.

330ml Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£2.80):
Caramel brown to mahogany & a 1cm, foamy white head with great retention & a creamy texture that leaves good lacing too.
Sweet with a lot of sugar & over-ripe fruits, some figs, cherries & plum too. Lots of sweetness & dark fruits to this one along with a boozy, alcohol laced aroma. Some caramel and a great balance on the nose.
Very sweet & sugary with figs, dates & cherries plus lots of sugar coming from all of these. A definite alcohol taste to this one is areas and some caramel too that adds to the sweetness and some malts too.
Smooth & incredibly sweet with a lot of carbonation & some alcohol coming through. Medium bordering on light bodied in places with a slightly dry finish.
Started great with the look & the smell of the beer impressing in particular, sadly the taste couldn't match the start with the sweetness overpowering the taste in places & the beer seeming a little bland occasionally. It is definitely up there with some of the best looking beers I've had but the taste let it down sadly.
