Spicy nose with fruits similar to most of the other Unibroue products I’ve tried lately, brownish-orange body, small head receding quickly. Very well balanced spice and fruit flavors, alcohol only slightly noticeable. Good stuff.

Wow... I love unibroue. This is a sweet strong beer that goes down easy, Definately rich in flavour. Completely different than Trois Pistoles but like a better version of Fin Du Monde.
[re rate: for sum reason it tasted better at the Beer Fest]
Palate isn’t as good.

Another winner from Unibroue, dark orangeish amber color, great tasting with spiciness and fruit, very drinkable despite the alcohol, great beer

Obviously this brewery knows what they’re doing. La Maudite is a great tasting beer that lives up to its evil label - it will bring out the devil in you. Not bitter, not too sweet, apple, slight fig, carmel, are all good flavors to describe this beer. Excellent.

Hoppy, yeasty nose--a bit lighter than I expected. Hazy rich orange color of the embers that burn in my future home in the afterlife...substantial and soft wheat-hued head. Flavor is spicy and sweet...delicate and layered flavors of candied fruits leave trace sweetness on the lips and warm fuzzies in the back of the palate. Hops are also there in support, and boost the spicy warmth with a blanket of mild dryness. Carbonation is suitably low, adding to the superb smooth feel of this most drinkable strong ale.

one of unibroue’s best. awesome spiced ale. it has the yeasty house nose that most uni’s seem to have, and a great honeyish, peppery flavour
