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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2003 In Unibroue terms, Trios Pistoles meets Don de Dieu. Reminded me very much of a Belgian Strong Ale-Weissber combo of some sort. Pretty apricot color with a large, rapidly fading head. Nose is rich, lots of citrus, cola, and nutmeg. Flavors of butterscotch, cream, lemon, and maybe something like peanut butter? Very fizzy brew, makes the tongue tingle. Very enjoyable.

My favorite of the Unibroue beer I have had, but still not among my favorite belgian strongs, a little too sour for my liking.

One of the first Belgian Ales I ever had and certainly one of the best.

Sweet yeast smell. Cloudy apricot colour, small head. Bready, spicey (orange zest.) Chewy, tingly, complex. ’The Damned One’ would be proud.

Wow! Im impressed by this one. I had always seen it in the store, but finally broke down and got it at a bar in Houston. Had the traditional belgian nose...spices and fruits took over, hints of alcohol in the finish....well done!

Cloudy orange/amber with a long-standing head. Peppery orange aroma. Spicy orange zest, flowing on alcohol with a slightly bitter finish. A nice balance between malt and hops.

Fizzy pouring. Head disappears quickly. Smells a little like mulled cider, with an alcohol kick. The flavor is warm, gentle, with a bit of an alcohol burn going down. Very pleasant and full flavored, but still subtle. Nice beer.

On pour, there was a nice head that quickly dissolved, leaving a relatively clear orange-brown body. The aroma and flavor are both sweet and spicy. While that can be a good thing, I find that I don’t much care for this particular spiciness. Champagne mouthfeel contrasts unusually with the alcohol undertones. Surprisingly mild aftertaste.

Really outstanding beer. Similar to a weiss, or maybe even a weissbock. I suprisingly really enjoyed it. The palate was full, the spices are well noticed but not overpowering, and no overwhelming fruit presence. One of a kind.

Rumor was this was a darker beer, but I was not disappointed. Strong alcohol flavor mixed with a pleasant spiciness. Can’t wait for my next one.
