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.

Nice malt and hop aroma. Pours a nice copper with a decent head that sticks. Not much body to the palate. Not watery but not very full. Pretty good brew.

Looked cool, big head, but am I missing something here? It had very little distinguishing smell or flavor. I had no idea what style this was until looking it up on here just now. I have no idea how they fit 8% alcohol into something so watery. Unibroue 10 and La Fin Du Monde are much better choices from this brewery.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of clove, gum, orange peel, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. A decent Belgian amber ale...nice cowebby yeast and other aromas. The drinking experience isn’t as satisfying, though...rather watery and the finish is a bit short and almost goes all the way to bland territory. If this were a bit more rich it could get into the upper 3s.

Amber-brownish colour, misty; frothy head, that reduces quickly. Warm aroma, malty, cookies, alcohol. Good body, powerful, a lot malty, alcoholic, sweet in the front, more balanced then; nuts. Ordinary palate, with sweet notes, lacking some hop character and bitterness.

The aroma and palate don’t do the greatness of this beer justice. This is an incredible example of the stlye... perfect for any really cold/snowy day.

This beer poured out of the bottle with a wonderful citrus, spice aroma and a frothy white head that lasted throughout the glass. There are very complex malt flavors with strong fruity, spicey tones. This is a very warming beer and the 8% sneaks up on you. A very good beer.
