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.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is a clear copper with a tall and dense very light tan creamy head on top. The head settles to a frothy coating, like a latte.
Aroma: The aroma is mildly fruity with a prominent yeasty profile giving a spicy presence. Perhaps some black cherry here, nice aroma with a decent strength.
Taste: Big fruitiness throughout, subtle black cherry and a chalky base. The yeast provides spice most noticeable on the back end. Nicely balanced with warming finish.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a nice beer, very drinkable and very approachable. I like the balance of flavor though I don’t love how yeasty the beer tastes.

Un classique indémodable... Le parfum n’en dit pas trop à l’avance et après, c’est miam miam en bouche ;-)

Reimer96 (1073) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a big frothy long standing off white head. Aroma of spicy clove/peppery phenols with fruity grape and Apple like esthers and a grassy hop aroma. Taste is spicy yeast, peppery phenolic flavors with a big sweet balanced malt base. Grassy hop flavor with a light bitterness and some some fruityness. Full bodied that’s very well balanced and easy to drink.
