750mL. I wanted to like this beer. Starts off with large foamy head that lends way to smells of grapes, plums, and various spices. Tasted of light grapes and molasses. The body was thin and the finish was fizzy. I was hoping for more.

On tap at the Yard House in KCK. Served in a goblet. No head. Dark red to purple color. Very clear. Aroma of prune and raisin. Some cherry notes. Maybe even some nutty character. Dry finish. Alcohol is very restrained. Very nice.

Bought this at Keg N bottle #2: Pours a dark brown with light contrast on the edges of the glass. Small topping of fizz foam and gives off a mild aroma of caramel and dakr malt. Flavor is sugary with dark malt that has a undeniable coffee aftertaste.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle, 750. Beautiful looking brew. Thick head, nice and spritzy. Complex aroma, difficult to pinpoint, thereís alot of malt, caramel and perhaps some dried fruit. maybe even licorice. Flavours are rich and complex, spicy yeast, sour fruits, and again that licorice note which I canít really pinpoint. Nice prickly carbonation lightens the mouthfeel and even when warmed up and flattish, this beer is not cloyingly sweet. Dryish somewhat hop-bitte finish. I really like Maredsous 8, thank god itís available at the government-controlled liqour-stores here in Sweden.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Pours hazy deep, deep scarlet. Two-finger shaving cream head lasts forever and coats the tulip with solid lace. Aromas evoke anise, chocolate, raisins, cola, and orange zest. Flavor eludes decription... flowers, spice cookie (pfeffernuesse?), earthy, copper? Brazil nuts? Palate is effervescent and fluffy. Tart, cleansing finish; mild aftertaste suggests cocoa, cherry... nutmeg?

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Dark colored beer with little head retention. Sweet caramel malt and yeast aroma and taste. Not much alcohol initially but really comes out as this warms. Very thin body with a slightly dry finish.

CamdenD (1181) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 29, 2006
This was an extremely enjoyable beer. Very light on the tongue for a dark beer and entirely drinkable. Perfect darker ale for a warm night. Highly recommended.

Lots of thin carbonation. Quite sweet and the 8% is hardly noticible. Well balanced, lightly hopped, but not exactly memorable.
