This beer looks awesome, in fact probably best looking beer I have sampled. Chestnut body, creamy head, pure velvet. Lacing is absolutely sublime, head all the way to the end.

Aroma is slightly sweet n sour. Sweet fig mixed with a sour yeast...can't wait to taste.

Taste is lovely, slight bitter twist, but mainly coffee and malt, a treat.

Feel is a touch effervescent for a bruin, but not in any way detrimental, and aftertaste is just lovely.

Overall, head and shoulders the best in class for me. Can't think of another dubbel or bruin which even comes close....8% of pure magic. A must try beer.

25.4-oz bottle into Stella Artois chalice

A - 3 fingers khaki foam over transparent body of copper, high visible carbonation, very nice lace

S - nutty and grainy, hint of dark fruit; not doing much for me

T - caramel-sweetened bread, spice, dark fruits

M - creamy medium body, high carbonation

O - I'm not particularly familiar with the style. This one is a bit dry for me, but the complexity of the taste is enjoyable.

L - Dark red-brown, clear, with solid beige foamy head.
S & T - light brown bready malts, candi sugar sweetness. Not much else. Quite disappointing considering the 'world class' score on here...
F - nothing off.

O - a very forgettable beer. Very little to no complexity. Quite flat in terms of flavor tones. Just a lot of malt and candi sugar. There's nothing really 'off' about it, but it's just so generic and commercial-tasting I think I'm gonna pass on Maredsous beers from now on.

Wouldn't recommend this one.
