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.

Probably my favourite Unibroue beer (along with trois-pistoles). A nice colour and a nice head. The aroma is yeasty, fruity and spicy. A good texture and a taste of yeast, malt and spices.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Nice appearance, medium brown with a pretty, lasting, creamy head, a bit of haze. Aroma was unremarkable, just some Belgian yeast and sweetness. The flavor was also unremarkable. Nice, balanced, vaguely Belgian in nature, but nothing really jumped out beyond a house yeast flavor. Although I like the Unibroue yeast (reminds me of the DT's yeast), it isn't enough of a flavor to base a beer around. Well made, but sort of boring.

Pours dark brown, with a creamy off-white head. Quickly diminishes leaving no lacings. I smell sweet malt, and some chocolate. Tastes a little bitter, but the alcohol content is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is smooth, goes down easy. Overall very nice - haven't enjoyed a beer this much in a while.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Mellow-smooth palate, light aroma and sweet apple-citrus flavor. A fizzy, delicious treat.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 28, 2003
Gorgeous ruby read body with sparse hints of yellow, below a full, white-meringue head. Smells starchy. Inhale a little deeper and yeast, clove, sweet fruit, spices, even a little citrus register in the nasal cavity. Creamy feel in mouth, with just the right amount of carbonation. Taste starts bready/doughy then exposes some fruits like apple and some lemon, accompanied by clove spice and cinnamon. Aftertaste is malty, with more yeast and wateriness. Decent beer, almost worth buying just to see its dazzling color.

Very impressive beer. Lots of spices with a hint of cinnamon aroma. This is smooth going down and even though it is 8% it still tastes like beer!

MegaManC (31) - Oakville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2003
Very good Canadian beer. Very complex flavour that only the experienced beer drinker would probably appreciate. Very Fruity. I've tried this beer as well as "La Fin Du Monde" by Unibroue, and both rank very highly with me.

Found this in the cooler of a french camping site! My first Unibroue (can't find it in little DK) Big lasting head. Malty and very spicy.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUL 16, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 Almost no carbonation. Balanced, smooth, and a little unexciting for a Belgian strong. Very pleasant flavor though.

First time I had this beer, they had it at The Commercial Hotel on Whyte Ave (?), which was surprising. I had advised my newly found hoodlum friends we should go back to my new bachelor apt. and drink them although I didn't have any furniture or electricity. They opted to got to gazebo park and drink them there. Unfortunatley, the cops didn't like this idea, and proceeded to pour out all but the half bottle I consumed *it came in 6 packs back then* Oh the humanity ....oh yeah...kick ass beer
