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.

Not sure if I've gotten an old bottle of this, but the flavor just doesn't seem to live up to the billing of the other ratings here. Perhaps there is something in the finish that is just unappealing to me, perhaps it was sitting around the store for a bit too long...will attempt to rerate in the future.

WabashMan (1020) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 Nice, amber color and generous head begin this libation. Aroma is nice and fairly light. Flavor complements the aroma very nicely. Fairly light, with some spiciness to it. Good mouthfeel, as well. A fine effort, as always, from Unibroue!

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Cloudy and medium bodied. Perfumed, fruity aromas with good carbonation. Sweet malt flavors with a hop note on the finish.

Murph06 (121) - Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Slight banana aroma in the head---pour into bell-shaped glass to get better aroma. Unfiltered amber color, okay head when poured but doesn't "lace" much, if at all. Tastes spicey with slight sweetness. Some apple? Very nice.

Diego (79) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Excellent aroma and body. Very smooth almost a velvety complexion to this fine brew-ha-ha. Underated. This is an excellent beer and well worth drinking by the six-pack, I would recommend it to all of my friends without reservation. A delicious sort of sweet finish to it makes it a tasty treat.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Has a very yeasty aroma to it, which is typical of the style. Cloudy, murky, look about it, with a medium sized head. A little sweetness to the flavor. Not as good as Trois Pistoles, but still nice.

proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Pours out to a cloudy, amber in the glass. Aroma is that of bread, yeast and light fruit. Taste is slightly spicy, yet with a subtle sweetness. The swallow finishes with a spicy tang. Nice alcohol warming effect. Got better as it warmed up.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Nice hop/malt balance witha sweetness like all the sugars were not fermented. Great head and retention, with creamy look and feel about it, almost like it was whipped. Good dense body. One of Canada"s finest.
