COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In November 1992 Maudite (the damned one), was the first strong beer to be distributed in Quebec grocery stores. Maudite is a mahogany-colored, rich-tasting premium beer that has a distinctive, complex taste. Because of the warmth it releases, this strong character beer must be served cool but not cold. Perfect with pasta, red meats, stews and spicy dishes, it also makes a good aperitif and after-dinner drink.
Maudite has a typically Quebecois name that is reminiscent of the legend of the Chasse-Galerie (the legend of the Flying Canoe). Legend has it that a group of lumberjacks struck a deal with the devil to fly home in their canoes, guided by Satan himself, to make it home in time for Christmas.
Gold medal winner in 1995 and 1996 and the Chicago Beverage Tasting Institute.

750 ml. bottle. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of fruit, malt, spice, and yeast. Taste is dark fruit, spice, yeast, malt, and some caramel. Well made beer. Can’t go wrong.

Karori (8) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 21, 2014 does not count
Definitely a big beer, nice and flavoursome. Alcohol comes through well. Pours nicely witha creamy head. Slightly cloudy, but that’s understandable. Overall one to savour

Nero55 (476) - Leeds, Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber with large beige head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, yeast, and slight CO2 burn. Medium body with some sweetness and notes of caramel, cider, fig, spices, and a slight alcohol warmth.

exeter (196) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Hazy amber-orange color with a big, impressive head. Yeasty, spicy nose, but not as pronounced as I expected. Very carbonated. Alcohol warming is present, but subtle for the 8%. Spicy and yeasty, smooth and rich Belgain style beer. World Class.

RickTheRick (194) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Un grand classique d’Unibroue, la Maudite, avec sa robe brune caramel, dégage un fumet de caramel brûlé, de fruits confits et de levure qu’on retrouve dans presque tout l’inventaire d’Unibroue. Les mêmes perceptions se répètent en bouche, le tout rehaussé par un léger aspect fumé très agréable. La Maudite offre un col de mousse assez mince, mais assez persistante pour nous crémer la moustache (pour ceux (et celles?) qui en ont).

njnut (156) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Poured in tasting glass. A cloudy copper with little head. Light lace. Fruity and yeast aroma. A little less yeasty than I expected but noted along with pear and caramel. Complex, warming. Another winner from Canada.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is a clear copper with a tall and dense very light tan creamy head on top. The head settles to a frothy coating, like a latte.
Aroma: The aroma is mildly fruity with a prominent yeasty profile giving a spicy presence. Perhaps some black cherry here, nice aroma with a decent strength.
Taste: Big fruitiness throughout, subtle black cherry and a chalky base. The yeast provides spice most noticeable on the back end. Nicely balanced with warming finish.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a nice beer, very drinkable and very approachable. I like the balance of flavor though I don’t love how yeasty the beer tastes.

Un classique indémodable... Le parfum n’en dit pas trop à l’avance et après, c’est miam miam en bouche ;-)

Nice Belgian style ale, amber with almost no head. Malty aroma and taste, Some spice, peat, and a little sweetness. Pretty good stuff.
