4.1/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bought as part of a two pack: Maudite (the damned) with Eau Benite (holy water) for 10 bucks before tax... pretty good deal if you ask me. Also I guess you can't really find Eau Benite outside of this package so I was interested. Poured into a tulip glass and paired with popcorn. No bottling date, but they offer a drink by 08-02-15 suggestion.

A&S: When first poured the aroma is predominantly malty, with a background of fruity yeast (mostly green grapes). As it warms a surprisingly large amount of new aromas open up including: oranges, prunes, and pear tartness. The beer is a lively, but murky chestnut color. Thin ring of white bubbly head, which goes extinct after some time.

T&M: Not as malty as I would have thought from the aroma. Similar to the aroma as far a white wine grape tone, but also includes tropical fruits, apple cider, Even though 8% is on the low side of this style, i appreciate the craft of hiding the alcohol that is in this brew. Malty, caramel backbone. Mild hop bitterness in the finish complemented by some peppery spiciness (which is also present throughout but not as much so). Well carbonated, but not overdone, light but not entirely un-smooth, a bit oily.

Overall: I felt like it didn't entirely fit the style of beer (not as much epic taste and high alcohol tones as I expected), however I still really enjoyed it. I wouldn't probably buy again because this and La Fin Du Monde usually run about the same price and I prefer La Fin. Still not a bad beer to check off your list.

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.

3.91/5  rDev -6.9%
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.
