A dark brown beer with a big and beige head. The nose has dark and dried fruits, prune, roasted bread, surprisingly dry. Taste has dark fruits, raisins, peppermint. Not too sweet. Medium bodied, fresh. Good beer, not too sweet and fresh enough. Traditional.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2014
Vörösesbarna színe fölött pihe-puha habfödő csücsül, míg aromája a jól bevált fügés, mazsolás, belga élesztős jegyeket ontja. Parányi buborékokkal alaposan teletűzdelt teste összességében közepes teltségű, azt a szénsavmolekulák könnyítik ki leginkább. Ízében ugyancsak ismerős zamatokat üdvözölhetünk, malátás-élesztős központúság köré szilva, mazsola, barnakenyér és karamell karaktere rétegződik. Mérsékelt vérű, a belga sörök iránti tisztelet nélkül azt mondhatnánk, hogy szinte unalmasan kifinomult alkotás, amely azonban pont azokra a pillanatokra nyújt remek megoldást, amikor meglepetésektől mentes, klasszikus ízekkel szeretnénk találkozni.

camoes (148) - PORTUGAL - SEP 29, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4084. AROMA: deep acetic aromas. unreatable. APPEARANCE: deep ambar color with an average ivory head. TASTE: deep sour and pungent flavours. unreatable. PALATE: thin body and extreme carbonation obvious from somekind of contamination. OVERALL: an oddly contaminated batch that leaves you thinking with what, since this beer has a rated ABV of 8%...

Draught from a beer festival in Cascais, Portugal. It pours a ruby color with a decent and persistent tan head. Aroma is sweet syrup, red wine, nuts, a hint of alcohol, berries and Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet brown sugar, caramel, grape fruit, berries, and with a decent bitter and alcohol finish. It has a quite strong body and soft carbonation. As usual, a complex Abbey Belgian Ale with a lot of character. I would drink it again.

Alengrin (2085) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
The dark one in this series of abbey beers, with a thick, lightly beige, sticky, moussy head and a warm, autumn-like bronze colour with copper hue, clear but hazy after adding the deposit, as it ought to be. Sweet, bit heavy aroma of candi syrup, raisins, banana, orange peel, milk chocolate, overripe plums, liquorice, pear, coffee liqueur, cloves and some faint DMS (red cabbage), but not so much as to actually disturb me. Sweet palate with medium, bit mineral-like carbo, lots of candied dates and banana, candi sugar too, light sourish touch, nutty and caramelly, smooth and soft maltiness, quite full, some chocolatey bitterness in the finish along with leafy hops and some warming, brandy-like alcohol, which just manages to avoid astringency. Also tasted from tap. Easily the best Maredous for me and again a Belgian dark in disguise, as this is actually a Scotch-style ale. Could have been a Christmas beer.
