Beautiful brown amber color, with creamy head. Excellent lacing. Not quite as good as Chimay, but definitely worth a try.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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%...

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a large, beige head. Aroma is cola and caramel. Taste is caramel, dried fruit, Surprisingly strong herbal bitterness hits on the finish. Dries up. Too light with too strong carbonation. Not that pleasant.

330 ml bottle, rated 2014-09-13 @ Viking Amorella
Mahogany reddish brown clear beer which becomes hazy after pouring in the yeast. White big head. Aroma and flavor have dark fruits, syrupy sweetness, alcohol, pear peel like Belgian yeast and ripe banana. Adding the yeast adds the pear aroma and complexity in the flavor, makes it more fruity refreshing. Palate is thicker than medium with strong foamy carbonation. Finish has a mild bite of bitterness with alcohol. Aftertaste is dry syrupy. A decent dark Belgian Ale which has a bit too much alcohol.

By far my favorite beer, this strong dark beast is my constant companion... at least when I can find it. I’m lucky enough that it is served continuously on tap at my regular bar.
