has a beautiful cloudy reddish amber color to it, doesn't have much of a head on it. unfortunately im in a smokey bar so i cant get a real good feel for the aroma but what i can discern is great, a ginger spiciness to it. taste is fantastic just like unibroue's other beers. i just love it

A-pours a dark creamy brown with three fingers worth of head

S-alcohol comes through but not overpowering, sweet caramel, yeasty and fruity

T-the taste is more complex than the smell. Tastes of caramel, bready malts, tart fruits, spicy, and a sourish yeast finish. Alcohol is very subdued.

M-medium to full body, moderate carbonation, creamy

A great beer from a great brewery, really does the style justice. Could easily have a couple more!

A: pours a deep rich coppery hazelnut brown with visible carbonation. creamy rich off white-almond head definitely wants out of this glass! sparse but thick lacing. head remains till the end as a thin layer on top. very nice!

S: smell is very intense with the aroma of dark ripe sweet fruits (berries, fig, dates, banana). hefty malting mixed with a nice yeast profile. Also to note, smelling the inside of the empty bottle is amazing. it smells like sweet berry pie...that sounds weird i know, but it does!

T: WOW! This is fantastic! It's like a puzzle and all the empty pieces are what make up my taste buds and when I pour this into my mouth all the pieces are where they need to be! The dominant flavor on my palette is that of really sweet dark fruits, somewhat berry-like complimented perfectly by the toffee, caramel malt flavors and assortment of spices. VERY well balanced with a minute amount of hops. Almost unnoticeable alcoholic presence but has a slightly warming effect as it goes down and lingers in your mouth. There is so much going on in this beer I could spend ages analyzing it!

M: very well balanced beer, almost creamy smooth. my mouth wants more!

D: well balanced, amazingly delicious and completely unnoticeable ABV make this beer ultimately re-drinkable. this could be a session dark ale!

The taste is like nothing I've had before in a dark ale. Amazingly complex and flavorful. This is the best Belgian Dark I've had. Period. And it's from my home province! This is one beer I will never not have enough of.

I would LOVE to try a vintage or special edition of this beer.

EDIT: I just changed my profile to Strong Dark Ale as my favorite thanks to this brew. Keep it coming Unibroue, this stuff is liquid gold!

This is delicious, interesting, complex and very fruity.

Dark, reddish amber with a little brown and just a tiny bit hazy, it has a large, lasting, creamy, light tan head that slowly thins to a thin, permanent top and leaves some decent lace, but not for long.

The aroma is spiced, sweet red wine with a lot of fruit, bread, orange juice, hints of yeast and pear.

The taste is very fruity (both fresh and stewed dried fruit), rich but light and zesty, with spice, orange, hint of caramel, yeasty. It's complex, lively, and zesty, with the alcohol providing a nice, warming body without being obvious or at all harsh.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a snifter
L- Chestnut brown in color with a pumpkin hue around the bottom and a gorgeous, frothy white head on top.
S- Very complex, notes of vanilla, fresh herbs, citrus, floral, perfume, and chili's.
T- Initially strong flavors of spice, toasted nuts, and citrus-particularly ripe oranges-from the hops. Followed by more subtle flavors of vanilla, ginger, and even lime.
F- Perfect balance between creamy, bubbly, and weight of body with the perfect slight dry and spicy finish from the hops.
O- Not much else i can say about this beer other than being essentially perfect. It does a fantastic job of balancing itself between deliciously creamy while all the while not being too creamy. It also manages to blend together flavors that normally would not coincide so harmoniously. Overall, this is one the best beers i have had the pleasure of tasting.

Pours dark brown with a big cream head which hung around doggedly.

The nose was dominated by licorice and gingerbread, the perfect Christmas aroma!

The taste though was rather surprising, lots and lots of caramel, backed up by cloves - almost like a light Christmas pudding, with a very subtle bitterness underscoring the sweetness.

Despite the somewhat hefty kick of alcohol, Maudite is very smooth and was like drinking liquid fudge.

Becoming a BA has opened my eyes to a lot of new styles over the past couple of years and the beers of Belgium (or, rather, Belgian style beers) have really intrigued me of late...

Poured into a goblet, Maudite is truly a beautiful thing. The deep red brown color is actually a close match to the walnut desk I'm sitting at as I type this. A quickly forming light, fluffy 1" head dies down and leaves a delicate scalloping around the perimeter of my glass... Fruits abound in the nose and I can smell a lot of banana, pineapple, and maybe a little grape. Cloves also come into play, and with the aroma of yeasty bread, the different fruity esters all come together wonderfully... All that description of smell and yet the taste is what truly makes this beer one of the most complex I've ever tasted. I get all the fruit and hints of the hop character right off the bat. While these flavors meld and then melt away, the cloves slide in riding the slightly elevated ABV, bringing a pleasant spiciness to the whole mouth. As I exhale, the heat and the spices stick around while the fruitiness, slight hoppiness and that distinct yeasty bread vibe make a triumphant return... The complexity of flavors, combined with the light tingly carbonation create a tremendously harmonic mouthfeel, helping to make this the most drinkable Belgian style beer I've had to date...

A: Pours a clear copper with ruby highlights; 2 fingers of bubbly white head that dissipates slowly. Good lacing and moderate carbonation.

N: Plum, raisin, banana, coriander and barnyard.

T: Ripe plum, raisin and molasses that fades into rich bread, black licorice, banana, a hint of apple and finishes with some lingering phenols and coriander spice.

M: Light bodied, bubbly, clean and smooth.

O: This has just become a new favorite of mine! I don't know why I waited so long to try this. Complex, easy drinking, smooth and refreshing! Incredibly balanced and falls under the category "dangerously drinkable."

A - Pours up two fingers of head, lace is thick and clingy, this looks like a belgian. Colour is orange to copper with some small bits of yeast hanging out.

S - Mega bready malts, with ripe, fruity overtones. I am getting subtle spices coming through as well.

T - Goddamn, I love this beer. Bread, cake, yeast are all up front for a second or two then its fruits and spices, plums, raisins, pepper. Hop bitterness comes through at the end which makes me want dive in again and again. Warmth is present, but the alcohol is completley masked.

M - Smooth and rich, yet not overly filling, a perfect balance of sweet and bitter.

D - I can't get enough of it. I have drank so much of this over the years and it still remains one of my number one choices. This is a beer that I will never get tired of.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A- It poured with a huge (3 finger) off-white head atop a deep chestnut brown beer. There were also small brown drops of sediment in the head and full streams of carbonation rising to the top. Fluffy rings stuck to the glass throughout the bottle.

S- The aroma was a complex play between sweet fruit and roasty grains. On second sniff, I picked up the sourness that hit me right from the first sip.

T- More complexity in the flavor. There were definite sour notes to accompany fruity tones and less forward sweet malts. As the beer warmed, I found more alcohol notes that warmed the belly.

M- The was quite full. There was a foamy feel from the head along with some grainy notes and medium carbonation. The sour flavor had a drying effect on the finish.

D- The drinkability is great. It's a definite sipper, but I'd come back to this beer again.

Overall- Unibroue makes some great beers and right now it would be hard for me to say this isn't their best. Everything about this beer is complex. Throughout I would find new flavors, aromas, and textures. I would recommend this beer to somebody that likes a slighty dry champagne/sparkling wine. There is a lot that reminds me of the flavor and feel.

Enjoyed from a 12 oz. brown bottle. I can't get enough of Unibroue's offerings. Whatever they're doing up there in Canada, it's perfection. They're making some of the most excellent Belgian-style big beers this side of the Atlantic.

A: Pours a brilliant honey ocre into the mug with a big head that rapidly dissipates. The lacing is lasso-like and very fine and drapes as easily as fine Netherland's lace around the mug.

S: Smells of orange honey, cloves, anise and four leaf clovers.

T: Just like the smell, a rich combination of citrus and sugary-sweet notes from the hops and barley malts. Rich and complex sweetness up front with a wet middle of caramel/toffee vanilla notes with only the slightest hint of citrus bitter from the hops. Mildly dry, cheese finish similar to edam or a good white farmers cheese.

M: Smooth as silk. Carbonation is micro-fine and dissipates rapidly. Like drinking milk-fine carbonation. Alcohol is well balanced and this one pours down the throat super soft. Glug, Glug, glug.

O: Vastly exceptional. It's almost as perfect as the finest Big Belgian trappists.

This is one hell of yummy offering by the awesome Unibroue guys in Quebec. 750ml corked bottle, pop this sucker and immediately smell the mingling of sweet spices and warming alcohol. Oh smells absolutly amazing, I just loved the sweet spicyness, lets see, theres some fruity sweets of orange peels, some nutmeg, ginger, clove, belgian-like yeast, and heck through in some roasted peppers. Then the taste is super rich and creamy smooth with lots of spicy action and tingly sweetness with a great roasty caramel malt backing thats very bold and smooth. The spice is peppery and fruity. Its got alot of things happening in the taste and feel, its just great to sip and ponder what the hecks all in this thing. The feel is medium heavy bodied, solid, silky smooth and a little bit creamy, that starts sweet, citrusy and malty then goes into the spice level and fades nicely into a fresh and drying bitter hop. Nothing here is overwhelming or overpowering, its all balanced in so softly its hard to phathom. This is one super awesome beer, highly recommend getting some.

Had a glass of Maudite on Tap in a Maudite Goblet while dining out on a recent trip to Portland, Maine. The waiter initially told me that it was a French Beer which perked my interest since the French aren't exactly known for their beer. The beer is a nice dark rouge (excuse my french) and it retained a nice head. Goes down extremely smooth and could be enjoyed with many different meal selections. You don't taste the high alcohol content at all. This is another excellent brew from Unibroue. Make sure to try this if you have the opportunity!

if an angel from hell would drink, this would be his first choice. absolultely astonishing. seriously, you FEEL like a badass when drinking this beer. someone asks, "hey whatcha got there?" the only response needed, "maudite." and the fledgling drinkers turn away and mutter under their breath about how much of a hardass you are. seriously, this beer pours solid, smells solid, and drinks solid. almost a hallucinogenic balance of hops, malt, and magic. sweet coriander citrus, mouth watering malts, this beer is sweet and sour, easy and strong. the head lasts longer than you do in bed. the head from this beer continues to add a crisp funk from afar to the total drink, and the carbonation is like hitting a downturn in a roller coaster of adrenaline. i really don't even want to go into specifics on what this beer actually tasted like to me, mainly for the reason that i'd rather you try it on your own, and take your own perspective into it, without skewing your view with mine. it's a heavenly brew, yet hellish. you could drink yourself into oblivion on this thing. i'm sure many a tortured soul finish their hard day of lashing with this wonderful sip.

Considering that the legend for which this brew was named takes place on Christmas, I thought this was a good time review this beer, which I discovered and have been drinking and enjoying for about 3 weeks. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a slightly chilled 12 oz glass beer stein.

Appearance: Nice dark golden-red color, opaque and slightly cloudy; pours into a 3 finger nice foaming head which it retains for about 5-7 minutes before decomposing into a 3/8 foam top, nice lacing on the sides of the glass which it retains and stays about 2 inches above the level of the liquid.

Smell: Very pleasant and "bready" with hints of sweet citrus and peaches. The scent is clean and not strong with none of the alcohol odors I've noticed in some other Belgian Ales.

Mouthfeel: Very bubbly with the carbonation hitting the mouth immediately giving a slight spicy feel.

Taste: Wonderful and varied flavors. Very yeasty, but with a sweet light feel almost like white cake as opposed to bread. Notes of citrus and a peachy aftertaste. The carbonation gives a short spicy note. Slightly but not overwhelmingly sweet notes and only a slight hint of hoppy bitterness in the after taste. Very smooth yet bold and flavorful.

Drink-ability: A very nice brew either by itself or paired with strong cheeses or rich sweets. Nice flavor in a brew with this much alcohol and no strong strong overpowering alcohol notes. The alcohol warmth is there, but it is not overwhelming. Goes down very rich in taste. The hops are not very noticeable and if you are a big IPA fan you may not really appreciate this one. I've had other Belgian Ales and noticed they tend to be strong and overwhelming and much to earthy for my tastes. This one is fantastic and renewed my interest in Belgian Ales. All in all for my tastes a wonderful brew and now on the top of my list.

Pours a cloudy mahogany color with a substantial head that dissipates slowly. Spicey apple and plum smell with malt and yeast evident. Initial bite on first taste with a pleasant fruity finish. Feels very good in the mouth, good carbonation, medium-bodied. Swirling builds a nice little cap.

Served in a Maudite glass, pours a reddish-amber with a frothy head. Fine malty aroma. Flavor is amazing complex. Identifiably Unibroue, it's a blend of fruit, spice, yeast and malt. Alcohol is well masked. Goes down very easily; definitely a world-class beer.

Poured the Maudite from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an opaque copper-colored appearance. Gave almost and inch of head that didn't last that long.

Had a sweet, sharp aroma. You could smell fruit, maybe some sugar and yeast.

The taste was outstanding. The aforementioned Belgian yeast mingled well with the apples and sweets. This is a very complex flavor, but it never overextends itself.

The high carbonation gave it a strong mouthfeel. It was very tingly and allowed you to really enjoy the flavor on your palate.

Like Unibroue's La Fin du Monde, the Maudite is another outstanding beer. It's incredibly tasty and goes down easy - maybe a little too easy. Overall, an excellent beer. I look forward to trying another one of Unibroue's products.

Presentation - 12. oz. bottle, served slightly chilled. La Maudite translates to "The damned". This should be fun.

Appearance - The beer pours a deep amber with lighter orange undertones. Joining this pretty color is the most beatiful head I have ever seen. My 23oz. chalice could scarcely contain this monstrous and fluffy white head. Bear in mind this was not an aggressive pour, and this head is the norm for this beer. Amazing just to look at it. The lacing remains throughout the beer.

Smell - The smell does not disappoint either. Candied malts and orange hits my nose initially, followed by clove, yeast, and some banana. I expected a darker smell based on the appearance. For my money, this is also one of the best smelling beers I have encountered.

Mouthfeel - The trademark Unibroue carbonation is present in this beer, which I find to be pleasing. The carbonation reminds me of champagne with its small and soft bubbles. That aside, the feel is a bit light and slightly astringent from the alcohol.

Taste - I have had many of the heavy hitters of the Belgian scene, and this is a beer that I keep coming back to. It is surprisingly playful and light for a strong dark Belgian. In fact, I might not even categorize it as one. The spice and clove leave an aftertaste that some have called unpleasant, but its all a matter of taste. I enjoy the aftertaste, and all of its subtleties as the beer melds from dry to slick and the tart, sweet, and spicy flavors wash over my mouth.

Drinkability - As drinkable as any 8% beer can be, although I wouldn't have more than one 750mL bottle in an evening. The alcohol is just one small part of the drinking experience here.

Overall - This is a top 2 or 3 beer from everything I have sampled thus far. This sticks out to me among the Unibroue lineup, which really says something about the beer. This is reasonably easy to find on the east coast, and I am very thankful for that. May I be damned to an eternity of drinking this beer.

Well I'll be damned this is a good lookin beer, HUGE carbonation, lots of nice head even in my oversized wine glass, bithin bottle too

smell: absolutely intriguing makes me think of pinot gris with its green apple aroma

taste: continuation on the apple thing except it tastes more like sweet red ones, there are lots of big sweet caramelly malts in there, with a nice dry finish. It makes it so that it's almost like biting into an alcoholic caramel apple There's just a nice crips bitterness at the end. Yet another way that this beer reminds me of white wine.

mouthfeel: tons of carbonation, not to full and not too light in body, plenty of alcohol on the finish but in an awesome way.

drinkability: delicious, smooth, refreshing, interesting. It's straight up awesome. I don't know how to compare this to anything that I've had. Maybe I'm just unfamiliar with the style. Absolutely exceptional

Unibroue review preface: I spent 2 weeks up in Montreal and drank Unibroue beers the whole time. No wonder they call it UniBrew. Their beers all taste similar. They are all very subtle variations on a theme, that theme being excellence in brewing. That said:

"Belgian-Style Dark Strong Ale". Belge?...peut-être. Noir?, Je ne panse pas. Fort?....oui. Lightly cloudy medium-amber with a touch of sedimentation and potent carbonation forms a voluminous light meringue white head. Hangs around for the entire beer. Excellent retention and nice lacing. Aroma is, at a distance, green apples, but with yer nose in the glass, it's phenolic bavarian wheat, with cloves and bananas of course. There are very subtle notes of brown sugar, but with Unibroue, it's all about the yeast and exceptionally clean ferment. I have to say, I just drank a La Fin Du Monde and it smells exactly like's just darker in appearance. Taste is typical bavarian dunkel weizen mit heife, but with a more substantial malt character/alcohol content and the typical explosive, spritzy mouthfeel. Has a touch of amber malt peeking through and a smidge of bourbon character. No sourness or basement character noted. Finish, besides the slightly smoky sugars, has a very pleasant clean alcohol blast and warms the gullet. (Tirade: I wish more brewers could get this right. Too often, the alcohol kick is fusel and isopropyl, and just dang nasty. Clean is the word, folks and everyone should take lessons from the brewers at Unibroue!). After the Samuel Smith Imperial Stout, I'm feeling a pleasant buzz. Think Edelweiss DunkelDoppleWeizen.

Another world-class brew in the Unibroue lineup. This is also a benchmark for beers in the style. Dangerously drinkable at 8% ABV, this one is an absolute beauty. I love it! Highly recommended!

Phenomenal beer! Purchased a 725ml bottle alongside a Eau Benite from a Unibroe boxset (and very reasonably priced at $25 for the both).

The Maudite pours from the bottle into a standard pint class with barely a quarter-inch head with no descernible lace. A quick sniff would suggest spring-time fruits complimenting the front-end with no bite at all. The back-end is slightly chewy but pleasant. The color is nothing but gorgeous; golden-brown until the second half when it turns into a brilliant and bright caramel hue.

I've yet to find another beer like Maudite and the entire Unibroue brewery deserves laurels. Chalk me up for another, please!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance - This head is alive! The brew is very active with carbonation at first pour, and the head consists of partly tiny silky bubbles at the bottom, to larger bubbles toward the top of the head. The beer is a brownish amber color that is very clear. If you pour the whole bottle at once, or hurriedly, you will disrupt the layer of sediment at the bottom and this will severely fog the brew.

Smell - The last beer I tasted was the Achel 8 Blonde, so the perfume coming from this glass is a much stronger and complex aroma. As per usual with this style, it has a dominant smell of dark ripe fruits. However, there's something different about this smell I can't put my finger on, but it is enchanting. The hop aroma is more present than most I've tried fo this style, and they are quite citrusy. Also, the malt in the background smells slightly raw and fresh, but still rich. There are definite notes of spice along with a very subtle alcohol scent. Outstanding smell from this beer.

Taste - First thing that hits your buds is definitely the strong flavor of spices and dark fruits (maybe over ripe, but excellent!). The spice flavors are very complex and quite powerful. Immediately next comes a very nice alcohol burn that lasts right up into the aftertaste, but it is not unpleasant at all. The hops flavor comes in at the finish, along with its malt partner. The hops are clean and citrusy, and the malt is rich yet fresh/"rawish". Also in the aftertaste is a nice sweetness sensation, along with an earthy feel from the yeast.

Mouthfeel - Perfect. Perfect carbonation, it's medium bodied, it rolls around your mouth like smooth silk or velvet. It's heaven in a bottle.

Drinkability - To this beer's credit, while it has a very complex flavor and smell, and a decent alcohol burn, it is very, very easy to drink (at least for me). Of course, strong belgian-style ales are my favorite type of beer.

Overall, this is just another fine example of why Unibroue is one of the most quality brewies in the world. Their beers are just superb and this one lives up (or exceeds) to the rest of their line. A must have brew right here!

Pours a gold/amber color with a fluffy white head. The yeast is very prominent in the taste and smell. It has a massive complex flavor that is all over the place, it changes as it warms, but it never hints at its high abv. This beer has become one of my absolute favorites especially out of the 750ml corked bottles.
