330ml bottle poured into a Chimay chalice, leaving a solid 2 inches head after an aggressive pour.

Look: red, no lacing, the foam fades quickly enough. Certainly looks good all around. Let’s see how this smell...

Smell: raisins and hints of caramel, not unusual of many Dubbels. What does it taste?

Taste: caramel-sweetened bread, spice, dark fruits. Very tasty and thick.

Overall: I definitely love this one, Maredsous other offerings have never disappointed me. While it doesn’t reach the excellence of - said Westmalle Dubbel (#1 in the style in my book) it’s still is a delicious beer and worthy of your bucks, euros or pounds.

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.
