Don't get me wrong, very good beer. Judging by style however, I prefer many other Belgian strong darks to this. Glad to be drinking this on Christmas - But I notice a more full bodied and complex beer from the folks at Gouden Carolous.

This is a lovely beer and I'm glad I gave it a chance. I first encountered Maudite many years ago and was not ready to appreciate its complexity. Like other Unibroue beers, the nose is yeasty, though this beer is agreeable right from the start. It pours beautifully and looks great throughout the sampling. The flavour is definitely on the sweet side - notes of clove and brown sugar, but overall it reminds me of home baked banana bread. In terms of price and accessibility, I'm not sure you can find a better deal out there...

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in December 2014.

Appearance: Dark red color, that is a bit cloudy. The head is thick and light colored, or off-tan. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a sweetness. The is some hops bitterness in the aroma, as well as a spices. The various aromas make for an interesting contrast.

Taste: An interesting mix of hops, citrus, and herbs in the flavor, that make for an interesting and complex IPA, but with a little bit of sweetness. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an interesting Belgian Ale. There is a variety of flavors, but none of these flavors overshadow the other flavors.
