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.

I am begining to like Belgian ales more and more. This particular beer is full of flavor. It incorporates a spiciness with a slightly sweet fruit backdrop. True to style the flavor strengthens as it warms. Its head quickly fades leaving behind a soft lace. Slightly reddish in color with a mysterious haze. A very well made beer.

Deep dark amber in color. Aroma is sweet with apple, caramel, raisin and spice. Taste is complex as well. 8% ABV you could have fooled me this is very smooth and drinkable. Good interpretation of a Belgian ale from Unibroue.

Large long-lasting head covering a dark, cloudy amber body. Doesn’t have the aged palate of some of its Belgian counterparts but does have a nice aroma and a slight candi-sugar sweetness. One of the better North American Belgian ales.

Sean and his buddy Nels rave about this stuff, but they are canoeing fiends, too, and I think the label has sucked them in a bit. It does have a beautiful, mysterious fruitiness, like Christmas cake, but I, for one, am not so sure about Christmas cake in my beer ...

Re-rate 9/5/02 Glad i had this again. Incredibly smooth and spicy with some nice fruit and maybe even a bit of bubblegum? flavor. A real winner. Unibroue scores again! A great beer.

Had this one again a few nights ago. Strong alcohol taste along with floral, spice combo. Maybe orange or cinnamon in there as well. Decent carbonation as with most Unibroue beers and a light orangish brown head. Finishes well but leaves much of the floral taste behind. Still a great beer though. Never had a bad Unibroue!

This is a great Belgian style ale. Big and matly with nice caramel flavours as it warms. Looks good too. However, it’s probably a little <EM>too</EM> smooth on the palete - I like a little more of a challenge on the way down with this type of beer. On the other hand it could be said that it is an ’easy drinking’ type of Belgian strong. Having said that the alcohol flavour comes through in spades... I love this beer but it could be better.
