Aus der Flasche bei Ellis Gourmet Burger in Brüssel. Dunkles rot-braun. Fester Schaum. Aroma Karamell. Geschmack Schokolade, Malz, Toffee, etwas Pflaume. Viel Kohlensäure, deswegen prickelnd.

Zilb (212) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2016
Bue 14 mois avant DLC a Bruges. Biere brune, faible carbo et col de mousse beige moyen a bonne tenue. Arome tres present et persistant de caramel. On ne sent pas trop l’alcool. Assez capiteuse en bouche, un standard dans les bieres mais en plus ronde et plus forte. En dessous de la blonde et la triple. Final assez amere et epicee.

Zarrach76 (71) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2016
Brune assez claire et transparente surmontée d’une belle mousse beige fine. Nez très caramel, cassonade, miel, sirop d’érable, pomme cuite, cerise noire, pruneau, figue séchée, datte... Quelques notes d’agrume et de coriandre laissent supposer une certaine amertume. L’alcool est perceptible mais maîtrisé. En bouche, bonne carbonatation, mais ce qui explose, c’est cet arôme de cacao amer et de café très surprenant. L’amertume est bien là et persiste assez longuement en bouche. L’arrière bouche reste d’ailleurs sur un goût de marc de café. On retrouve aussi la prune, un côté résineux et les levures quand on arrondit la gorgée. L’alcool est bien équilibré, rien à signaler ! Une brune avec un très beau nez et un goût surprenant dans la lignée des authentiques bières d’abbaye. Excellent ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Evilman (146) - Taverny, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2016
I can’t really say which one I prefer between this one and its Tripel variant. However, I can affirm this is some serious stuff, a perfect choice for any occasion and fortunately easy to find almost everywhere in my country. Dense aroma, with a quite delightful caramelized aftertaste. Alcohol level is interesting for a dubbel, making this even more recommended. Incredibly cheaper than some other Abbey beers, and clearly not to be overlooked for that reason. Damn cool. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2016 Avec ses 8 %, la Maredsous brune ne rigole pas, elle est plus forte que la plupart des bières brunes / doubles. Le goût en bouche est tout à fait sympathique, avec un mélange d’amertume et d’arôme caramélisé. On sent tout de même un peu la force de l’alcool à travers tout ça (la Maredsous triple est plus ronde / équilibrée). Le goût sur le palais est assez prononcé, en revanche on ne sent pas grand chose en arrière bouche. Passe bien en écoutant un vinyle de Sabbat et en gobant du saucisson au roquefort. Approuvé par la Taverny black metal crew.

Parmenion777 (171) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Pours a mahogany brown colour with a medium sized beige head. A sweet caramel aroma with some fruit (prunes), malt and vanilla present. Taste is caramel and fruity plums with some alcohol coming through in a dryish lasting finish.

nephirem (295) - CROATIA - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours deep ruby body with one finger, creamy, slightly off-white head. Excellent head retention. Smell is floral, yeasty, slight chocolate presence. Medium body with thick and creamy texture, softly carbonated. Slightly bitter and boozy taste. Aroma of caramel malts, yeast, herbs. Spicy. Woody. Notable presence of alcohol... Brandy? A bit sticky on the tongue. Mouthfeel is boozy and mostly dry, same as the finish which lasts quite long. Overall, pretty good brew.
