Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle. Very pretty pour with a foamy beige head. The nose is very strong of plum and bread dough. The taste up front is very sharp with CO2. Notes of rum, raisin, bread, clove, and brown sugar come through. The finish is noce and clean. Overall this is quite good, but just a little thin. If they made this just a little stronger, this would be a homerun!

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2004
What makes the Mared 10 so enduring with it’s sticky sweet and earthy flavours, is a bit muddled here. Needs to be tightened up to compensate for the loss of alcohol, but instead it is thrown in at the end of the drink to compensate. Not terrible, but needs a bit of TLC.

PorterPounder (5709) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Picked up a 750 ml bottle at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Dark chestnut pour with a frothy mocha colored pour, thick lacing coats the glass. Rum raisin aroma, with some brief chocolate notes. Flavor has a delicate maltiness to it with flavors of dates, raisins, a bit of chocolate and faint traces of alcohol but it is hidden well for 8%. Mouthfeel has some carbomation to it but it is not overbearing, sit right in this one. A most drinkable and enjoyable Belgian.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2004
Brown ale. Tall beige, lasting head. Fruity aroma. Wheat? Yeast. Good carbonation. More fruit in the flavour. Perfumy notes. Malty sweetness. Elements of red berries. Dusty finish with a touch of hops. Faintly metallic. Watery palate. Overall mild brown stong ale. High ABV very present.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Somewhere between red and brown with a decent head. Aroma is dark fruit, banana, malt. The flavor leaves a little to be desired, mostly fruity and sweet, but it’s very subdued, almost watery. Finishes very smooth with no bitterness or dryness at all. All in all, it’s slightly above average.

Christian (11278) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2004
A pretty brown body with a creamy light brown head. Good fruity aroma with malt and raisins. Flavour is a little thin, but well balanced.

beerguy101 (5294) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Dark brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malt, raisins, candi sugar and fruit. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. Malts are fruity, plums and raisins. Touches of breadyness. Soft carbonation. Very drinkable, and not as yeasty as most Belgian ales. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
