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 have grown to enjoy Unibroue over the past few months. I purposefully held-off trying the Maudite to savor the moment. A lot of malt in the nose with some yeast clove, nuttiness and cotton candy. Acres of harvested barley must go into each bottle. This brew literally explodes with malt flavor ... the hops are forced into an Al-Queida hiding state. Wonderful rich buttery flavors, toffee, caramel. The reason I did not score this a little higher is because despite all of itís malt complexity, this beer felt a little thin. Almost like the end gravity went too far. Still, another great beer from a fantastic brewer.

Thick, woody, yeasty aroma. Heavy spices and banana tastes permeate every taste as evidence of some earthy, woodiness comes through later on. Its VERY heavy for me for some reason as Iím discvering such a trend in the unibroue line. Point blank it just started gwtting to me before the bottle ended...over powering and an unbeleivable richness. There is a lot of sweetness in here that saturated my palatte. I give extra brownie points for the surreal label and the drunken fisherman/vikings flying through the sky in a fricken row boat.

Spicy caramel flows over toasted bananas on a bed of sweet malts and sugary yeast.

If you can find it on tap, itís even better than in the bottle. Iím a big fan of La Fin Du Monde but Iím starting to dig this one even more. A great beer after a steak dinner.

Reddish brown, hazy colour. Medium head. Somewhat yeasty aroma with a little bit of toffee and citrus. Sweet and warming flavour. A pleasant but not outstanding beer.

I was so surprized to see I hadnít rated this one. A nice beer that is like a spicy double. Some nice soft fruits and sour/tart elements are mixed with clove and other spice. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

vinous and could taste the strength of it. very, very sweet and sort of flat. nice spicy aroma, lovely ruby color (ok, i confess, i tried it in a clear yellow plastic cup at my MILs so i donít know exactly what color it was) i think i would need to try this again considering all the rave reviews. but for now, consider me not raving.

I drank one of these straight from the bottle - didnít even notice at the time how good it was. Definitely better poured! Very flavorful! You can taste the alcohol, but the beer makes up for it. I will definitely try this one again.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 Damn...This is my 100th beer rating. This is one wicked brew. When I poured it out and took a first whiff, I was overwhelmed by all of the different aspects of the aroma: Apples, grapes(as in wine), almost a nutmeggy spicy type note. The beer travelled down very well. Flavor loses a point because the alcoholic taste was ever present. Appearance and texture were outstanding. Very pleased to have been fortunate to find this hidden in the dark recesses of the beer cooler in the liquor store!
