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.

Very nice beer. Reminds me of Chimay Red

Not a bad take on a belgian strong. Was rather sweet from what I remember. I may rerate this after I buy the gift pack down at my beer store.

Alcohol taste seemed more apparent in this beer than in the others from Unibroue. Aside from that it was still excellent; nice and cloudy, with spicy and fruity notes. And a kick ass label as well.

A good, but not great, take on Belgian strong. Lacks the complexity of the better Belgian ales, but is still damn good, with a fruity flavor balanced out by a nice yeast character and a hint of spice. There’s an alcohol taste there, but it’s well-balanced in the mix.

I had high hopes for this one, but it let me down. Lacked the complexity and the punch of Belgian ale.

Dark amber to copper, foamy to frothy head. A slight bitter, alcohol taste pervades, but in a good, character building, way. Has a pronounced spicy/herbal taste, mixed with a light fruityness. La Maudite means ’The Damned’, I hope to be damned more often.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - JUL 24, 2001
Cloudy brown with a thick, white head. I couldn’t quite place the aroma, so I settled upon plums, with a noticeable alcohol presence, and a touch of cloves. The flavor followed suit, slightly spicy and reminiscent of plums. No negative qualities. Excellent brew. ’La Maudite’ means ’the damned’...great name, huh? Definitely some of the best Canada has to offer (in the states anyway).

Pretty, dark color with some fruit in the nose and sustained foam. Carmel and yeast in the effervescent body. Tastes stronger than 8%. I’m sorry to say but this has begun to define a new class for me -- ’Belgian-By-The-Book’ -- excellence diluted by replication.

Great beer. Moments of fruit and moments of choclatey sweetness. A terribly easy to drink 8 percent.

As close as, or equal to the best Belgian strong ales brewed in North America!
