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.

Dark copper appearance. Spicy, fruity aroma with hints of cherry. Yeast and malt with some spiciness in the taste. Luscious, full-bodied mouthfeel. Smooth, mellow finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Scintillating orange-copper color and well carbonated with fair lacing. Smells like apples, yeast, candy sugar, and a hint of grass. A fruity Belgian style beer with a smooth balance of medium tartness and sweetness plus some herbal bitterness. Earthy flavors as well. Has interesting qualities that suggest a gueuze.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
This beer has a captivating bright red color with copper highlights and an off-white head. The head dissipates quickly, but lingers the entire glass and leaves a nice lace. The aroma is sweet and rather like a fine merlot. The taste is exquisite, without a trace of alcohol. Maltiness is evident, and a fruity sweetness is present in the finish. I can mainly taste ripe plum, but I am reminded of a good sweet red wine. The best (or perhaps worst) characteristic is it is a pleasure to drink.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Pours a pretty pellucid auburn with a nice sized head that remains till the end. Aroma is slightly spicy and citrusy. Flavor is sweet with fig and dark fruits. Alcohol is VERY well hidden. This is a good beglian strong with some traditional flavors and good alcohol esters.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2003
The second best in the 4 variety case i bought. Very smooth and enjoyable despite the alcohol and the style of beer. This one has more of a fruitier flavor than the others.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Blend of orange and red not quite reaching maroon. Moderate, dimishing head. Smells of peaches, grapes, berries, and grainy malt. Tasted like a slab of courseground bread smothered with smokey fruits. Good.

bierkoning (12193) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2003
Bought in Brouwerij De Schans. Orange color, cloudy. Fresh malt and orange aroma. Sweetish flavor with orange, malt and a hint of sourness. Peach and a hint of licorice. Some alcohol. Lovely fruity flavor. Easy to drink, but the alcohol is everpresent. Good beer, easily to be confused with one of the better Belgian strong ales.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This is an excellent beer from Canada. As are all of the Unibroue beers that I have tried. You can taste the alcohol but the richness of the beer is the key

omhper (23008) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy ruby colour, creamy head. Yeasty fruit aroma with a hint of red berries. Rather sweet with beautifully soft texture. Rich and malty with toffee and crystalized sugar. Mild, drier finish. A thoroughly balanced beer.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Pours a nice reddish-brown with some ivory head. Lots of fruity, slightly alcoholic nose. Malty flavors of fruit, a little yeasty. Pleasant palate, nice finish, with good lace. A pretty good Belgian.
