Maut gets abune the Meal (The)

.

malt liquor or drink gets more potent than the food eaten—that is, when men get heady or boosy.

“If the maut gets abune the meal with you, it is time for me to take myself away; and you will come to my room, gentlemen, when you want a cup of tea.”—Sir W. Scott: Redgauntlet.
