Maredsous 8 – Dubbel

750 mL bottle, Green’s, Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Fantastically complex and layered beer, with it packing every ounce of its 8.00 % ABV.

I love this “Brune” Belgian style as it reeks of “real” beer. Tasty, with a subtlety that belies its relatively high alcohol content, it truly warms the cockles of the heart. I find that the alcohol in this brew takes on a real, depth, like a complex after dinner liqueur it has the ability to satisfy from all angles – aroma, taste, complexity, warmth, drinkability and more.

It pours big, with a rocky, dense head and great lacing.

Lots of caramel sugars up front, but these are tempered by the seriousness of the beer. It is sweet, but not in a “girly” way. This is a beer to be enjoyed slowly and in small quantities. Not because it is not drinkable in large volumes, just because it is better if one savors the moment.

Yep, let’s have some more. Ta.
