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.

Bière de couleur ambrée troubles avec des bons reflets caramel la mousseline et tenace Oh mais on va sentir des arômes de céréales de caramel d’alcool En bouche tombe à la frontière légèrement acidulée avec une bonne amertume qui arrive ensuite on sent toujours des saveurs de caramel malté

Master of head retention is Unibroue - this pours a hazy brown with tan clingy pillow on top. Aroma of cooked sugar, brown bread, and a slight sour yeastiness. Flavor is similar - sweet caramel and dark fruit with a slight tartness at the end. Kicking myself for passing by this brewery’s selections on the shelf a hundred times.

Pours amber with a tan head. Aroma is earthy, Belgian yeast, pear and some prune. Taste is sweet with some tart acidic undertones. Medium bodied, smooth with some heft to the mouth feel. Very enjoyable.

Embouteillée 15/05/2015, bue après 6 mois. Robe ambrée foncée assez trouble, mince filet de mousse au-dessus du liquide. Dentelle glissante et brève. Arôme de canne à sucre, cassonade, pruneaux, carré aux dattes et muscade. Les levures typiques de la brasserie se veulent plus effacées ici. Nez soyeux et sucré mais manquant un peu de complexité. En bouche, des saveurs de fruits rouges confits plus ou moins détectables au nez se développent rapidement sur le palais. Beaucoup d’esters fruités en fait. Cerise, banane, pruneaux et mûre. Le tout sur un fond sucré de cassonade et sucre candi. La muscade se dévoile un peu vers la finale avec des effluves plus citronnées. Texture adéquate mais qui manque un peu de lourdeur. Un corps bien rond soutenus par un sucre agréable. Haut taux d?alcool bien caché.

Delicious first-class belgian dubbel reproduction, from the fine lively carbonation to the rich color to the smooth and flavorful malts to the sweet candi sugar to the well-hidden booze. Thank you Unibroue!

Speedy_Charly (193) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Couleur d’acajou avec une mousse beige fugace qui ne laisse que peu de dentelle. Arôme de fruits, d’alcool et de malt caramélisé sur un fond légèrement fumé. Au goût c’est la même chose avec une légère amertume en plus et la chaleur de l’alcool. Une biere à prendre au coin du feu par jour de froid.

Belgian-style ales aren’t always the prettiest beers. Beauty typically lies more in their execution than in their appearance. Maudite doesn’t follow that norm. It’s lively. It has lovely brown-red color and an even off-white head. Aroma is redolent of rich, toasted grains. There’s plenty of sweetness coming from the malt sugars and booze. Flavor offers some extra layers of complexity. Caramel, butterscotch, cream, bread, spices, and subtle fruitiness. Feel is superbly smooth with a lovely warming sensation at the finish. This is a nice sipper to put you down for the night.

It smells slightly smoky and nondeScript fruit (plum / prune?). Furthermore, it smells a lot of alcohol. The taste is only slightly sour and then explode in a cascade of flavors that range from nondeScript sweet fruit of the hops, and finally a pleasant warming alcohol.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2015
Tap at Beerbistro in Toronto. Murky dark amber with a light tan head. Caramel and ripe fruits dominate both aroma and flavour. Nice warming spiciness. Crisp in the mouth. A very nice sipper.
