Review from notes. Tasted a fresh 2011 bottle and a properly cellared 2009. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip and a Nostradamus flute.
Pours a dark copper amber. Two finger fine white head constantly renewed by carbonation, looks nice. Aroma of Belgian spicing and light malt and dark and light fruit. Nice flavor of malt, with some estery fruit, dark dark and light. Finishes crisp with caramel and fruit. Body light to medium. The flavor is a bit lighter than I'd expect, but pleasant. Nice flavors and progression.
Two year old bottle:
Pours a dark copper amber. One finger fine white head fades to an 1/8" head, constantly renewed by carbonation, looks nice. Aroma of malt, light Belgian spicing and dark and light fruit. Flavors have melded into a mellow malty dark fruit combination. Spices and a light hop kick emerge in the finish. Body is creamier and seems more substantial than the fresh one. Pleasant, but not as nice a flavor progression as the fresh. The finish is not as well integrated and a stands out against the mellow mixture of the start. I prefer the fresh Maudite, but this is nice to drink anyway.
Review points awarded from the fresh bottle, older scored 5 points less on the 1:100 scale.
