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.

Generous, cottony head. Beer is ruby red-brown in color. Aroma and taste of wheat, straw, and grass. The alcohol is well hidden, and the beer is warming and drinkable, but not one of my favorites. Sampled at just above 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Belgiun strong is a good description. This has all the flavors of a Belgiun ale (fruity etc.) with a warming alcoholic feel.

On tap at the Hop Leaf Chicago - Golden color with a small creamy head, fair lacing, full-bodied. Very nice aroma with hints of cereal, pine, yeast, honey, and raisin. Somewhat vinous. Flavor matched the aroma, creamy and buttery. Light alcohol presence detected on the finish. Good stuff, recommmended.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2003 Oh yeah...it smells absolutly amazing, I just loved the sweet spicyness, lets see, theres some fruity sweets of orange peels, some nutmeg, ginger, clove, belgian-like yeast, and heck though in some roasted peppers. Then the taste is super rich and creamy smooth with lots of spicy action and tingly sweetness with a great roasty caramel malt backing thats very bold and smooth. The spice is peppery and fruity. Its got alot of things happening in the taste and feel, its just great to sip and ponder what the hecks all in this thing. The feel is medium heavy bodied, solid, silky smooth and a little bit creamy, that starts sweet, citrusy and malty then goes into the spice level and fades nicely into a fresh and drying bitter hop. Nothing here is overwhelming or overpowering, its all balanced in so softly its hard to phathom.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2003
Small off-white head. Redish/copper-coloured. Pleasent aroma with plenty of fruit (mostly peach), also alcohol. Full body. Taste is sweet (again some peach?), a little spicy and with a late, light bitterness. Good.

haukur (1800) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 a very yeasty and fruity aroma, some hints of nuts. Taste was very smooth, yeasty and fruity. Some hints of citrus, banana and apples (??) and a slighty sour finish. A very complex brew and an excellent beer!

jonas (6858) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Phenolic banana nose. Cloudy amber, not much head. Tastenotes include peaches and bubblegum. Quite different from other Belgian strong ales, you could almost think it is a weizenbock.

Fairly subtly spiced, yet flavorful. Just a hint of ginger, a bit more nutmeg and allspice added to a chewy brown sugar dough. A touch of citrus kept the beer from getting too sweet. I think if one was expecting a really huge flavor sensation, disappointment would result. Forced myself to spend some time with this brew to pick up the subtleties I am apt to miss. Perfect appearance and aroma; fit the style perfectly.

This beer pours a light brown color with a moderate head and a small amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma was tart with hints of fruit and spices. The taste was a little more tart than I would prefer and it has a bit more bit than I expected - the spices are very apparent in the taste also. I did not enjoy the aftertaste as much as the actual flavor. This beer is just ok - I wouldn't highly recommend it.

cool label: the canoe trip to hell. i've been on one or two trips like that, tho being wet on a canoe trip is more likely than burning up, i find. no flaming misery in this drink either: a cool toffee colored beverage attempts to conceal a baja dust storm of ragged blowing debris. head foamed like a sprinting camel at first, and it sounded like bacon sizzling, but the bloated bubbles burst leaving only dotted fossil-like lacing on the glass. combination cinammon roll and lemon tart aroma, bath oils, lavender and rose oil baby powder. ya just wanna drop a sweaty weight belt in there to make it a little manly. first half of the glass has extroverted effervesence, but with a little patient nursing, the internal boilers chill and the carbonation becomes almost docile. (tho the last pour has some dirt-like detritus). sweet and tart, strong and bitter, lemon-soaked graham cracker pastry, alcohol and stick cinamon. finish is brief with biterness and acidic bourbon breath.
