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.

Obviously this brewery knows what they’re doing. La Maudite is a great tasting beer that lives up to its evil label - it will bring out the devil in you. Not bitter, not too sweet, apple, slight fig, carmel, are all good flavors to describe this beer. Excellent.

Hoppy, yeasty nose--a bit lighter than I expected. Hazy rich orange color of the embers that burn in my future home in the afterlife...substantial and soft wheat-hued head. Flavor is spicy and sweet...delicate and layered flavors of candied fruits leave trace sweetness on the lips and warm fuzzies in the back of the palate. Hops are also there in support, and boost the spicy warmth with a blanket of mild dryness. Carbonation is suitably low, adding to the superb smooth feel of this most drinkable strong ale.

one of unibroue’s best. awesome spiced ale. it has the yeasty house nose that most uni’s seem to have, and a great honeyish, peppery flavour

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 24, 2002
Nice malt and hop aroma. Pours a nice copper with a decent head that sticks. Not much body to the palate. Not watery but not very full. Pretty good brew.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 18, 2002
Looked cool, big head, but am I missing something here? It had very little distinguishing smell or flavor. I had no idea what style this was until looking it up on here just now. I have no idea how they fit 8% alcohol into something so watery. Unibroue 10 and La Fin Du Monde are much better choices from this brewery.
