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.

tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2003
A very smooth and complex belgian. Coriander, caramel, and a little hop bitterness all blended well in the initial taste. Finished a little bit drier, but a good all around brew. Masks the alcohol very well.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2003
Slightly cloudy amber with a large creamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, butter, alcohol. Good carbonation. Alcohol, pepper taste but the alcohol tste and warmth dominate as this becomes one dimensional.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2003
Not as good as the other Unibroue beers, but still worthy. A little too over the top on the yeasty flavors, but all is still well with this drink.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Appealing bright amber color with dense white head. Very fine yeast sediment has an intoxicating swirling action in the glass if a little gets decanted. Very sniffable, with tart fruit and spice notes. Tongue-numbingly medicinal flavors. Spicy, slightly peppery, underlying sweetness. Somewhat complex, the phenolic character fades a bit after a few sips.

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2003
Nice orange-gold body with swirls of sediment dancing in the glass. Thick rocky off-white head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Flavor is spicy sweet with yeasty notes, very carbonated. Alcohol well hidden. I am beginning to become a big fan of Belgian Strongs.

DYCSoccer17 (3461) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Nice orangish-amber color with a quickly dissapating light light tan head. Somewhat of a citrus-like aroma-maybe ginger as well? Palate has very low viscosity and isnt as thick as the other 2 unibroue’s ive had. There is notable carbonation-similar to trois pistoles. The flavor matches its aroma--not too strong, but you really have to work to pick out the mild hints. Finish is pretty smooth, without much of an aftertaste. 8% Ethanol is hid quite well.(8/4/8/4/16 4.0)------- 7/28/07-------& ounce bottle. Aroma is fruity, pineapple-like, estery one which is typical of the Unibroue yeast strain. There is a moderate spiciness present in the aroma. A few sweet hints are also detected retronasally. Moderately hazy amber-copper body present with a large, frothy, creamy off-white head present. It leaves some nice lacing. Spritzy, carbonated start which seems a little lacking flavorwise. The middle has plenty of roasted malts going on with a touch of yeast’s fruity esters. Pineapple. Finishes a bit spicy and has a nice, warming sensation. I don’t know, the flavor on this seems more subdued that I would care for. Above rating is for the re-rate.
