750ml bottle poured into a branded snifter

A: Pours dark caramel in color with a rocky, lasting tan/off white head. Traces of ruby at the edges and surprisingly clear.
S: Welcome to yeast city; population your nose. Obviously very strong in Belgian yeast - spices, clove, yeast esters, bread crust, overripe fruit.
T: Toast and bread crust with complex spices and a strong yeasty presence. Dark fruits, clove, caramel, burnt cadni sugar, earth, and lasting residual sugary sweetness.
M: Fluffy and heavily carbonated.
O: Really this style is just becoming a big turn off for me, though I recognize the depth and complexity here - it's just not for me. If you want a heavily yeast-forward Belgian Strong Dark Ale though, look no further.

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.

Sampling a variety from Unibroue's sommelier pack. Very pleased.

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...

Maudite from Unibroue
