12 oz. bottle with a BB date of 12-03-16 poured into a Duvel tulip. Dark mahogany with a finger and a half of surprisingly light-colored off-white head. Thick 2-3cm head lasts until the beer is gone and is followed down by a thick, sticky, solid sheet of lacing.

Very yeast-forward aroma. Spicy clove and coriander phenols. Strongly estery; both tropical (banana) and dark/stone fruits (fig, black cherry). Rich caramelized brown (candi?) sugar and freshly baked bread, along with a generic Munich-like maltiness. Light floral hops.

Rich toasted and caramelized malts along combine with a slight alcohol burn, followed by a nice spicy tingle in the back of my mouth. Lightly bitter hoppiness provides a good finish. Alcohol is warming but doesn't burn. Yeast still dominates as it does in the nose.

Highly carbonated, medium body which feels a tad heavier due to the ABV. Warm and creamy.

Overall Maudite is a wonderful beer. It's a great New World BDSA, but rated to style it doesn't quite stand up to some of the heavier hitters in its category. Nonetheless, for its availability and (relative) affordability, this beer and Unibroue in general are a great accessible way to scratch your Belgian itch.
