A - pours a nice opaque amber color with a nice whtie fluffy head.
S - some dark fruit smells (black cherries) as well as some lighter ones like peaches and grapes. Lots of that typical Belgian yeast smell. It's pretty much right in between Trois Pistoles and Don de Dieu in the dark/light spectrum.
T - like many Belgian style beers the yeast is driving the flavor train. Lots of spiciness. The flavor has a more reserved fruitiness than I would have expected, but in place of that is a nice caramel taste that reminds me I'm drinking an amber. The finish is a bit dry and mineral-like, with a slight booziness, similar to some red wines.
M - high carbonation, medium body, fine mouthfeel.
D - the dry finish drives up the drinkability, making up for the high ABV.
Unibroue can do no wrong in my book, and Maudite did not disappoint. I like Trois Pistoles a tiny bit more, and Don de Dieu and La Fin Du Monde even more, but this is still great.
