look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz brown bottle with a best before date on the back label.

Appearance: Hazed orange amber, tiny yeast particles are noticed in the brew. The lace is light in retention though the carbonation holds some there while active.

Smell: Bready, almost cake like malt aroma. Dollop of spice and ripe fruit with a well seen alcohol of esters and light solvent.

Taste: Faint caramel malt, ripe pine apple fruitiness, and bold spices that is dominant of clove. Heavy side of phenols with a spicy sweet alcohol, touch herbal from the phenols also. Straight up hop bitterness is light compared to the other flavours but still seems to flavour and balance.

Mouthfeel: Nearly excessively crisp, solid medium body with some slickness.

Drinkability & Notes: Packed with flavour, this one does not hold back at all. Very expressive and the sheer complexity does it for me. I keep this one around to keep my taste buds in check.

4.88/5  rDev +16.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Presentation: "Maudite", translates to "Cursed." Lost souls in a canoe (heading straight for hell), an evil devil with crossed arms greets and "Beer On Lees" (beer on yeast) are all present on the label. Bottle refermented in a 750ml brown.

Appearance: Wood stain in colour. Pours extremely frothy, as a champagne, and settles into a thin creamy ring that clings to the sides of the glass. Some haze appears in the glass.

Smell: Spicy aromas, alcohol notes and fruity esters. Yeast aromas hit the nose as you get to the dregs of the bottle.

Taste: Whoa! This brew has some complexities! At first, fruit and higher kilned malt flavours coat the palate. Then, a sudden black pepper spiciness, tartness and fruitiness come into domination -- going spicy once again at the end. A very subtle hop flavour is noted which gives the brew some balance.

Notes: This is an outstanding Belgian-style ale! Comparable to a fine wine, easily accompanying most cuisine styles. Very drinkable for an 8% abv brew, a tease beer as you want more. If this is "cursed", damn us to hell!

Honestly, this beer completely blew me away. I picked this up at Epcot in Disney World at the Canadian restaurant Le Cellier. Had it with my meal and it was incredible. The smell had an incredible aroma of spices mixed in and the taste was even better. Instantly one of my favorite beers and one that I will look for everywhere.

Picked this up on a clearance because it was a christmas two pack. Had this one to split at beer snobbery session at my beer guru's house. Excellent appearance, unreal smell, wonderful spice mixed in with the typical belgian, taste follows, wonderful beer that I hope to have many times.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours cloudy orange amber with a big two inch khaki head that fades to a ring on top and leaves strands of lace.

The smell is of funky yeast, Autumn spices (clove, coriander and nutmeg), orange rind and faint dark fruit.

The taste is of bready grain, plums, dark cherry, spices and faint citrus zest.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. Tiny champagne-like bubbles rise from the bottom throughout the drink down.

A very good take on a Belgian dark ale. The flavors open up nicely as the brew warms.
