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.

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.

I enjoyed a four pack with funk and while it does cost a dick and a ball the taste makes it all worthwhile. A great beer that I really can’t say enough good things about!

rauchbier (3709) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2002
Dark sludgy brown like a westmalle dubbel, but the head was short lived. Aroma initially suggests a trappist dubbell (westmalle, again) but develops into more of a rodenbach type woody spicyness, although not sour. Bread dough in the mouth with a fruity (fig?) spicy cakelike taste. Aftertaste is delicate but leaves behind the first hint of its taste. As I work my way through the Unibroue beer range, saving the strongest for last (I have a trois pistoles and a La Fin Du Monde left) I get more and more impressed.

aracauna (3349) - Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2002
re-rate 4/30/02. Had to lower the score. I really have a little trouble with the taste of the yeast. The color is nice. Medium dark reddish brown and cloudy. The head is a bit foamy and dissapates quickly. It has a mild pleasant smell. The flavor lacks some of the complexity that I would expect from a Belgian style brew, but the more I drank, the more I liked it. The alcohol only leaves the slightest footprint on the tongue -- just enough to let you know it’s there. Overall, a good beer.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2002
Rustlike color with a cloudy/yeasty appearance and a good deal of lace. A very quiet nose with some bready notes. No real hop nose. Spicy feel witha subtle hint of hop bitterness that cleans itself up by the end of the sip. Somewhat citrusy orange flavor with a hint of raisins and maple sugar.

Another world class contribution from Unibroue. Reddish amber color, thick beige head of foam, tornado of carbonation. Apple-plum in the nose, pepper spice, coconut and faint mustiness. Slightly spritzy palate, grips at first then just slides its way through with ease. A sweet red apple fruitiness is the first note in the flavor blanaced by a mild spice mid-palate. Suggestions of pineapple juice and candy sugar arrive as the beer warms.

Opaque chestnut colour, highly carbonated. Strong malt taste but bitter & spicy, not sweet. Very thick. Strong tasty & brown but not complex.

has the spicy aroma of a hefe, but the similarities stop there....slight bit of bubblegum and spice in the flavor as well....interesting brew
