Welcome to Cosmo's Beer Blog!

We’re a small group of friends and family scattered across the country who’ve all developed a thirst for craft and import beer. We decided that a blog would be a great venue for us to share our hobby. Here we will review beer, compare notes and challenge each other with "Beer Missions".

So welcome to our little world of discovering great tasting beer!

Maudite by Unibroue

Yet another bottle of beer with an appearance of the nether regions of hell inviting you to take a drink.  This one however scored much higher with me than the last 'bastard'.  The writing on the beer really does define the taste quite well:

"La Maudite (damned), referemented on yeast base in the bottle, goes down uncommonly smooth.  One taste of this excellent malt beverage will instill in you the highest respect and appreciation for its warm mellowing effect."

I highly agree, see the comments I wrote before I read the label below:

  • Brew Details: Maudite brewed by Unibroue
  • Serving Conditions: Served directly from the uncalibrated fridge into my 'Duvel' tulip glass.
  • Appearance: A foggy amber
  • Scent: yeast, very similar to a good hefeweizen (Franziskaner being my favorite so far)
  • Taste: Smooth and rich with a deep warming flavor well balanced with the alcohol content (not overpowering).
  • Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation with a subtle and inviting aftertaste.
  • Drinkability: Definitely ready for another one, just not tonight.  This could be the beer for the evening and I would not be disappointed.
This is my highest tested ranking so far, I'm giving this one a 9.  I guess it just reminds me of my favorite hefeweizen too much, but with more boldness.  So far both drinks I have had by Unibroue are amazing; the other drink being La Fin du Monde.  Unibroue has now made my list of favorite breweries, I will be looking for more of their beverages very soon.

Next stop, Orval Trappist Ale...

  1. Nice write-up. I'm a big fan of Unibroue in general and fan of this one, too. You should go to the "Our Preferences" page and add them to your favorite breweries :)
