Unibroue's Maudite pours out a rocky head over a deep cloudy amber brew.

The head does collapse fairly quickly, but the active carbonation provides an even quarter inch of foam in my glass. The nose is that fruity, spicy clove typical of some Belgian yeasts, and malt.

The flavor is more of that sweetish malt, with suggestions of fruit and a spicy clove finish. There seems to be a bit of hop in the aftertaste balancing that sweetness.

The mouthfeel is crisp and rounded. Behind everything, of course, pushing the flavors and the mouthfeel is the well balanced alcohol content.

Unibroue is one of the first more extreme brewers I've been exposed to, and one of the best, in my opinion.

This is one of my more choice drinks when I want a Belgian style beer. The bottle label was very intriguing and definitely sucked me in. I think of cinnamon when I'm drinking this beer. There is a nice little spice with this beer. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

This poured to a pretty plain dark color but it had a nice head. The smell is fruity and alcoholic.

It's a potent beer, that's for sure. The smell and taste are both very nice. It's dangeriously drinkable. The mouthfeel is dark and wonderful.

I think this is a benchmark for the style.

I've been meaning to try this one for a while. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, and almost all over the floor. Beer has huge bubbling head...pour carefully! Color is a cloudy golden-peach with a white-yellow glistening head. Smell is of Belgian sugar, cloves and other spices, not much of an alcohol nose. Taste is really quite good, mostly sweet of Belgian sugar, with the clovey-spice taste and a dry finish. The sugar taste is not too intense as I find to be the case sometimes with Belgian style beers. Same with the clove/spice. The mouthfeel is awesome, the head has the consistency of light whipping cream, the beer is full bodied and well carbonated. At 8%, this beer is dangerously drinkable.

I had this brew in Utah. It was a very good brew. I was a dark red color. It had an extremely malty taste, but a not so malty smell. Well, maybe it was a toasted malty smell. The mouthfeel was wonderful. All in all I thought this was a beer that I could really sit down and enjoy. Don't drink and review.

Poured a nice dark brown with a finger of off-white head into a snifter, with decent lacing. The smell was a nice bouquet of cocoa, molasses, brown sugar, maltiness, and tart cherry. The taste confirmed all of this, but the tartness also brought to mind some sour apple. The tartness surfaced mid-palate and stayed through the finish, which didn't taste as alcoholic (or leave warmth) like Trois Pistoles did, e.g. the alcohol content was very well disguised. The feel was a surprisingly spritzy medium body, and the balance in the flavor made me wish that I had purchased more than one bomber.

Poured out a dark amber/reddish-orange and the head was almost white with a tan shade to it. the head dissipated quickly into the beer, but after it did the foam looked white.

smell is, like others of this style, a fruity spice smell, maybe some apples with just a little citrus. i think i can smell the alcohol in this if thats even possible.

taste is great. some green apples in it that tastes just a little tart, but is still on the sweeter side i think.

mouthfeel is good with a medium to almost a full mouthfeel.

drinkability in my opinion was great, almost too drinkable. i havent savored the flavors too much, i just keep getting a sip after so much that i type. this was much more drinkable than i thought, but i would say to calm yourself down and enjoy this one!
