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 fruity aroma, cloudy copper color, large lasting white head. Wow, very fruity flavor with high carbonation, I like this one a lot. Clean, crisp, somewhat sweet finish. Nice.

Foggy amber color. Soft head, combination of large and small bubbles, diminishing quickly to form a small slick. Nose is estery, citrus, yeasty. Mild fruit, clove, spice flavor. Oily palate. Sweet spicy finish. Where’s the high ABV. Chalk one up for the Canadians.

The flavor and aroma of this beer are very similar to Victory Golden Monkey. I realize that they are the same style of beer, but I’ve had other belgian strongs, and these two beers are like brothers. However, unlike Golden Monkey, the fruit and spice flavor isn’t as noticable or enjoyable. If you have the choice, buy the monkey.

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Hazy, amber hue. Small, frothy, white head. Mostly lasting. Decent lacing. Heavy on the malt, but balanced nicely with the hops. Citrusy and fruity in the nose. Full-bodied. Fizzy. High ABV is well hidden. Creamy/oily mouthfeel. Slightly sour and spicy. Finish is spicy and slightly sweet. Aftertaste has an almost clover honey-like flavor to it, yet slightly sour and bitter. Great beer.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2002
A good, solid Belgian. Nothing super complex about it - flavor and aroma is fruity and yeasty. Good balance, a little on the sweet side.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - SEP 29, 2002
The color is like unfiltered apple cider: Opaque brown with a hint of orange. Apple and grape aroma. Apple grape, clove and slightly bitter taste. Very nice.

Sweet apple, grapes, and a slight flavor of alcohol. Great opaque light brown color. Yummy.

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Beautiful peach amber with a head that poured too thick. Lovely woody aroma, and while the flavor has this woody/piny characteristic as well, it has a sugary residue (piny/syrupy) infused within it to the point of being cloying.
