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.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 A dark orange appearance with a moderate head. The aroma is ginger and oranges and some other citrus fruits. A definite spice presence in the flavor but not overkill. I taste alot of apricot in this beer. The aftertaste is a bit sweet and the alcohol is well hidden. Pretty good stuff.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2003
Opens with a big ”pfffst” and prone to overflow. Muddy brown colour with an orange glow. Disappointing head. Malty and lightly acidic (oranges/grapefruits) aroma. Very nice fruity and spicy (cloves/coriander) flavour with a pleasant malty sweetness. Hides the alcohol well. The flavour is great but it is not “complete” enough to be a true top Belgian Strong Ale (I also noted a resemblance to weizenbocks).

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Brown in color, with large, creamy white head. Creamy, sweet aroma, slightly spicey. Flavor is malty and smooth, slightly sweet, creamy, with subtle alcohol throughout, and a hint of vanilla.

Fulkrum78 (175) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2003
Beautiful reddish color, hazy. Nice light aroma. Bursts on the tongue with carbonation. Another good Unibroue beer!

Nuffield (3835) - 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.

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.
