Ontario (Canada)

4.4/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

341 mL bottle from TBS; bottled on Feb 15 2012.

Pours an opaque brownish-amber colour, topped with nearly two fingers of frothy, beige-coloured head that fizzles away to a thin cap and collar disappointingly quickly, while leaving little lace behind. The aroma is enticing, with lots of dark malt sweetness and notes of orchard fruit, ripe banana, cloves and lots of (that familiar Unibroue) yeast.

Tastes almost as good as it smells, which is pretty damn good. The profile is complex, with a wide array of yeasty, fruity characteristics - with banana, raisins, dates and plums being the most prominent. These blend nicely with the caramel and gingerbread malt flavours, with candi sugar sweetness being a constant fixture as well. The spiciness is peppery at first, but softens into cloves and allspice toward the finish. Yeasty aftertaste, with more banana and spice. Medium-bodied, with a spritzy feel on the tongue from the fairly robust carbonation. Like many Unibroue beers, this is dangerously easy to drink - and the abv is especially well hidden in this one.

Final Grade: 4.4, a resoundingly successful A. Maudite is a wonderfully balanced, absurdly quaffable Belgian-style dark ale that I probably should have picked up a long time ago. Delicious stuff, and it practically qualifies as a bargain at its TBS price. It's hard to find examples of this style around here, so this is a brew that I am glad to have available locally. It's absolutely worth a try for any fan of Belgian beers, and something I will undoubtedly try again in the future.

[Updated April 17 2014]

Another bottle. This is basically the benchmark BSDA in my eyes - there are a few Belgian darks I'd take over this one, but none of them are as affordable, or quaffable for that matter. Unibroue makes some of the finest beers in Canada, and Maudite is one of their best.
