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.

A great & unusual beer. For those times when you really want something different. And that label - Awesome!

This stuff isnít quite as nuclear as Fin (another Unibroue product) but every bit as good if not better. How they made this meaty a beer this smooth befuddles me. After your first sip you will sense the explosion of flavor sliding down your throat... very very good.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Coppery, creamy head, yeast particles visible. Spicy citrus aroma (oranges), slightly floral. Nice spice component dominates the malt, notes of orange, cinnamon sugary. Finish is very sweet and sugary but soft and well balanced...perhaps a bit too sweet as it warms.

The first real beer I ever had, so it holds a special place in my heart! Overwhelmingly flavorful, it changed my perception of what beer is. Very fruity and spicy and aromatic. It will warm your throat.

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. Thereís an alcohol taste there, but itís 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.
