Classic Belgian ale. Pours a deep amber with a one and a half inch head that was well retained and left little lacing. Belgian yeast aroma with spices and malt. Taste follows the nose with some sweet malt, bread, and raisins. Well carbonated, slightly dry and medium bodied.

Looks a bit like cloudy iced tea. Decent head that doesn't last too long.Yeasty aromas dominate, a bit of spicy sweet malt as well. Tastes fairly close to scent, with the spices a bit more prevalent. Very smooth, medium bodied, pretty carbonated but it goes down very well.

I like it, but not a big stand out for the style.

Glad I went back to try this beer.
Although it had a single focused aroma the taste and mouth feel were surprisingly good. Not hot, it was a real Belgian style treat. At its price point it's better than a good value.

Maudite pours a light amber-blonde color into the glass which forms to a chocolate brown with a swirling, creamy head. The head dissipates almost immediately.

Not a whole lot on the nose except for Keebler fudge cookie, plum, kilned malts, and more chocolate.

Flavor starts off tasteless, with a wave of intense carbonation, but then explodes into notes of plum, fig, apples, chocolate, whipped cream, animal cracker, and peaches. A touch of cinnamon, a touch of sage. It seems more gentle than it is, but it's really intense overall. Just a burning chocolate plum hunk of love. Burning thanks to the alcohol.

Feel is wet, heavily carbonated, and burning. Semi-dry parch due to the alcohol.

Overall, this was fabulous. I'll go back for more...a 4 pack maybe. World Class for sure.
