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.

Nuffield (3754) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Very nice, but not outstanding. Pours a hazy red/copper, surprisingly large carbonation bubbles (could have been the effect of my glass, though) and a bit of yeast at the bottom. Nice, drinkable flavors, but slightly weak (compare Victory V10, which is at the opposite end of the flavor intensity spectrum), yeasty, fruity, slightly sweet. Goes down shockingly fast.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 4, 2003
Nose of wheat and spice, vanilla comes out as brew warms. Pours a clear coper with amber highlights. The large off-white fizzy head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The flavor is balanced but not particularly deep, and just a tad sweet. The medium dry body is fizzy with a very dry finish. Nothing outstanding about this one, but I would drink again.

hoorayforbeer (105) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 Pours a murky amber. Nice aroma: malt and dark fruit with spices and yeast. Mellow fruit flavors with yeast and malt. The spicy blend lingers in the aftertaste.

Darkover (1524) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Cloudy red color with a big head. Yeast aroma. Flavor is sweet, tart, fruity, spicy and yeast. Dry and sour finish.

akinm (282) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2003
alcohol, yeast, and sweetness abound in the nose. the golden red body holds up a head that is comprised of huge bubbles that dissipate fairly quickly thanks to the high alcohol. the flavor has lots of fruits and lots of alcohol in it with a little bit of a yeast bite in the end.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Deep amber color with a voluminous light tan head. Ton of fruit blended with orange zest, coriander and white pepper. Dry honey finish. that lingers. Warming and pleasant.

vector (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Rich copper colored, huge coarse head on pour. Noticibly malty, high ABV covered reasonably well. Touch of bitterness. Good ale overall, however I preferred the sweet, golden La Fin Du Monde. For some reason I am amused by the concept of a flying canoe.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Spice and apple in the aroma. Nice white head, good carbonation, appearance looks a lot like cloudy apple juice. Malty, spicy, and a hint of fruitiness in the flavor. ABV is not noticeable.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2003
This beer poured a copper amber color and formed a white bubbly head that left trace lace. A small amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, caramel and spices. A flavor of malt, caramel, citrus and some spice. The finish is a touch sweet, yet astrigent. A nice Belgian.

Frank (3224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2003 Gorgeous orange/red/brown color. Immense amounts of tiny bubbles and a slight haze make it nearly opaque. Not surprisingly, the head is a perfect half-inch and is fluffy and beautiful with staying power and sheets of lace akin to a nitro-can brew. Sourdough and yeast in the aroma with a hint of banana. Some spice up front. Creamy mouthfeel is complemented by the fine carbonation. Sweetly malty with some apple tartness. Has a definite wheat character. Yeast is a also apparent. Hops come alive as the beer warms, adding a pleasant bitterness and some citrus flavors as well. Somewhat short but clean finish. I enjoyed this down to the final remaining drop in my chalice.
