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.

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.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2003
Pleasant, spicy aroma. Pours a lovely light copper brown. Head is thick, bubbly, and long lasting. Highly carbonated. Watch for sediment at the bottom. Starts spicy, palate is complex and satisfying. Stronger and more complete finish than La Fin du Monde. If you like Belgian-style ales this should be on your must-have list.

Crit (3768) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
This was the first one of their products I saw, and their best. Yeasty lightly spiced nose.Sweet foretaste with nutmeg and a touch of honey, and a medium alcohol heat.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2003
Cloudy amber coloured beer with no head. Sweet malty aroma. Malty taste. Slightly bitter finish.

domtom (65) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2003
Nice head but a strange colour. Buttery and yeasty aroma. The flavour is spicy and well-balanced. The finish is long and spicy.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2003 This beer kept a nicer head than the La Fin Du Monde, brown in color with a little bit of an amber-ish tint, full bodied, the flavors included an undertone of sour veggies just like the La Fin Du Monde, spicy & yeasty flavors, fruity & malty aftertaste, these brews from Unibroue I guess just aren"t my bag
