COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle had many times recently revisited. Pours hazy amber color with a large beige head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, dark fruits, spices, the typical Unibroue yeast character, the fruit character grows with warming, some alcohol. Smooth, medium bodied, with a sweet, fruity finish. Another solid beer from Unibroue.

pours a cloudy darkish amber with a small white head. The aroma is orange, pepper, spice lemon and wheat. The flavour is quite fruity, Palate is long lasting

Poured from 12 oz bottle to stout/porter glass. Ap - 4 - nice murkey orange-red (burnt copper?) color with an off white had that sticks, but doesnít leave much lacing Ar - 9 - Nice! Cherry, spice, belgian yeast, figs, dates, plums Taste - 9 - Sweet, dark fruits, raisins, plums, figs, banana bread, dark bready notes, candy sugars Mouth/Palate - 5 - High carbonation, medium-heavy mouthfeel, Alc covered. Aftertaste is dark fruits and bread. Overall - 16/20 - Great beer. My favorite from Unibroue is probably La Fin Du Monde. It definitely measures up to the Belgian greats!

Bottle to pint. Best before 02-01-16. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with fluffy off-white head. Smells of Belgian yeast and dark fruit.Plum and raisin. Tastes like it smells, but more raisin-forward. Solid on the palate. A good example of the style.

spasticbeast (21) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
Appearance is dark raw honey with a small off white head with heavy lacing left around the glass. Smells floral and wheaty with a bit of funk mixed in. Taste is leaves, lemon with a leather aftertaste. The carbonation was smooth and light medium. Eh....not my favorite from Unibroue.

Aroma: yeast, light caramel notes, hay. Appearance: hazy dark brown, medium frothy beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweet getting stronger, alcohol, but not unpleasant, malts, caramel, bread, light carbonation, average-long finish. Overall: fantastic Belgian Strong Ale, very well balanced, not too sweet.

Stuedmaster (195) - Vista, California, USA - APR 14, 2014
750 ml bottle, pours cloudy orange-amber with almost no head. Aroma of red raspberries, caramel malt, dark bread, and somewhat woody. This is very dry, similar to a red wine in the flavor and palate. Lightly sweet, almost no bitterness or hop presence, slightly sour and earthy. Significant ethanol presence. This is by far the least favorite brew that Iíve had from Unibroue. Kind of watery for being 8% abv. Pretty boring, to be honest, donít agree with most of the reviews here.

Xenon (79) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2014
If Iím honest, this is the first letdown from the unibroue beers that I have tried. Maybe itís the bottle I got? No head at all. Had a bit of an underwhelming mouthfeel and the taste felt like it took awhile to kick in with each sip. Didnít taste strong. Some lemony citrus that I found that was pretty cool, but all around this is the weakest unibroue so far. Still decent, but worse than the others I will rerate with another bottle whenever

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased at Hy-Vee Muscatine ($3) and poured into a globe glass at home. Brown, dark amber and hazy appearance with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, esters, dark malts, spices, clove, coriander and floral hops. Similar flavor, malty, mildly sweet, mildly spiced, lightly bitter and fruity with hints of orange peel. Medium body, a little thin, soft and smooth with a crisp, lingering, light hoppy finish. Pretty pleasant and easy to drink.
