World’s Top Beers 3) Duvel 2) Maredsous 8 1) Olde English 800 This beer is so underrated!!! Tried some more "highly rated" on this site, comments below Exhibit A: Rochefort - coca cola syrup, way too sweet and rich. Soft mouthfeel?? One for the ladies. Exhibit B: Westmalle - nothing special, still too sweet Exhibit C: Orval - horse ass, but kinda refreshing after senses have dulled Exhibit D: Chimay - Dr. Pepper Exhibit E: Imperial stouts - more expensive than Starbucks

Came to the first belgium beerhouse in Zagreb. Asked for Leffe brune. They didn’t have it because, it was probably too mainstream. Tried a couple of abbey beers. Discovered Maredsous. I’ll never drink any other beer again.

Wow. Excellent color and head, great fruity and slightly toasted aroma. Caramel, bread, and fruits is what this tasted of. I’m craving another one.

Kind of smells like molasses and...possibly cinnamon?...no...probably not - probably figs...pours with a beautiful, large, oozing of quality head (Schaum). Smacks of quality and complexity.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Had it many time by the bottle. Had it by draft in the Sylvia Chantilly. Dark red brown with light tan lasting foam. For me this beer has everything I like, a powerful taste, some fruits and caramel feel, and a good ballance of sweet and bitter and sour, but not too much. this is one of my favorite beer. I love it. I had it many time again and everytime its just wonderfull. I love this beer.

4/3/01 - A memorable beer. [I had this again. I loved it the first couple times I had it back in March/April or so. I had it last night and its not as memorable as I recall. Kinda just a good decent beer. It wasn’t as good as I remembered it. Maybe I’d give it a 3.5 or so. I’ll try it again before I re-rate it though.]

Havent tried a strong belgian beer this good for a long time.... It pours a dark ambery beer with a long lasting and big brownish head.. I can smell the alcohol and some red fruits i think matching perfectly with a touch of caramel. I had this brew both.. at cellar temperature and at 6 degrees... cellar temperature lets the aromas and flavours to be more noticable. I can taste phenols, nutty roasted malts, matching a good amount of alcohol and caramel with a sweet long aftertaste Cheers

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2012 Bottle 330ml at Cookie. Great beer, well balanced. Aromas of burnt caramel, bread, nuts, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, with light bitter and sour notes, and long lasting. Palate is creamy, and full-bodied. Brown colour, with a frothy white head.

Well balanced dubbel with enough bitterness to add drink-ability to the very appealing medium malt backbone. One of my favorite dubbels.

Pours a dark brown with a small off white head. Raisins and dark fruits. Brown sugar. Some banana also. Overall a fantastic beer.
