La Maudite Beer....
The look of it: Well very special. Very brown, I think its a mix between a red ale and a blonde ale. And it suppose to be a dark ale. Lots and lots of carbonation.
The smell of it. Lots of spices. Very rich. Nice flavour tho !.
Now the taste: A bit disappointed I will say. I spicy taste with a touch of ginger. The hight % of ABV make the alcohol very present. But whats makes me upset a bit, is that La fin du Monde or Don de Dieu have a higher ABV and have a alcohol burn less present. Its more smooth on those beer, but Maudite does the opposite so that made my mark go down on this. If I didn t knew la Fin du Monde or Don De dieu I would give Maudite a 4,5/5 but since I reviewed it just perviously that makes my expectation high.
So overall would I recommend it ? Sure, still a pretty good damn beer. But Leffe Brune does a better job on this departement.

From a single into a NB globe glass
A: some kind of glowering ruby tinged brown-orange. 2 finger head that subsides slowly.
S: bready, earthy spices (including some clove), a little fig, other dark fruits
T: follows the nose, but even more complex and excellent. the spiciness pleasantly provides a little pop on the tongue, the sweetness has some breadiness, some caramel notes, and some more sugar candy notes; at the end, some earthy hops along with some subtle tartness.
M: finishes fairly crisp, but also really smooth. Nice and complex and a real pleasure to drink.
Overall: Really good. Hides the alcohol very well.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

341 ml bottle served cool into a pint glass. Purchased as part of the Unibroue tasters pack. About $2.25 CDN per bottle.

Appearance - amber and honey brown in color, topped by a monstrous multi finger head even with a gentle pour.opaque with a tremendous amount of bubbles. The head is ever lasting. Cascading lacing just drips down the inside of the glass.

Smell - yeasty and spicy, some orchard fruits and has some notes more reminiscent of a tripel or saison, rather than a strong dark ale. Nice, but I'm not blown away by this aroma. Some caramel or candied goods as it warms.

Taste - smooth delicate, candied sugars, sweet caramel, some sweet fruits such as cherry and a touch of chocolate. Delicious and alcohol is hidden so subtly.

Mouthfeel - smooth, amazingly light body, with a high carbonated feel.

Overall - a delicious representation of a great style. It doesn't get much better than this.

Unibroue delivers pretty consistently, and the maudite is no exception. It's not quite a La Fin Du Monde, but it's still great in taste and class. A dark amber color, but the taste is crisp and clean, well carbonated. Sweetness is present as well. I found myself enjoying it and will have another.
