Beer 61/365 – Unibroue Maudite

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Purchased at: Vintage Estate

What makes this beer different: Smooth and Crisp

Will I be drinking this again: Fo shizzle (Snoop just made a quick guest appearance on my blizog)

Grade: A

1/08/2010: Three A or better ratings in a row? Yes this is a first. This is one of the few mainstream Unibroue beers I have yet to try. Hard to believe because it is considered by many to be their best, but it actually isn’t super easy to find in the burgh.

The head on this beer didn’t come out quite like I was expecting. It was only slightly bubbly and not that creamy looking. The smell also was almost non-existent, but a bit fruity. The cliche “Don’t judge a book by its cover” without a doubt applies here. The taste is just awesome, so smooth. Very complex, with heavy malt to start, slight cherry, and a slight peppery taste. Also some spices in the background but I can’t quite pick out exactly what they are. ABV is hidden extremely well. The mouthfeel is a bit on the light side for a BSDA. I would have made this an A+ if the mouth feel was just a bit heavier, and if it had more of a good smell to it.
