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.

75cl bottle into chalice. Minneapolis. Appearance: Amber/copper brown in color. Hazy (cloudy as got to the bottom of the bottle). Dirty/off white head with short retention. Aroma: Yeasty. Dark fruits, possibly berries. No alcohol at all. Taste: mostly dry. A very slight sweetness towards the finish. Palate: Full body with lively, almost frothy texture from carbonation. Finish is not especially long. Overall: I appreciate the dry, yeasty flavor to this beer. So many strong ales are overly sweet, and this is not. It is a little lacking in flavor and complexity.

Deu (588) - Nantes, FRANCE - DEC 27, 2013
This beer is sweet and spicy. Banana and clove notes like a Belgian beer. Cloying malty sweetness, but it stops before it gets too overpowering. Overall Ok

Best by: Mar 3, 2013 A: Pours a turbid ruby ale with a two finger peanut head. This falls slowly to a fluffy quilt of the same. Nice orange-brown color where the light shines through near the edges. Spotty lacing. S: Yeast. chemical and earthy, the yeast is at the forefront here. Some sweet malts, some floral hedges. Don’t care for this - too much of the yeast. T: Yeast and metal. The yeast is as above, vinyl in chemistry for me. The metal is like the flavor of warm stainless steel. M: Medium to light syrup with high carb. Dry finish. Wish the body was a hint higher with lower carb. Would prefer more resonance on the finish. O: This beer way to imbalanced with the yeast being soo dominant and makes the beer one-dimensional. Serving type: bottle 07-09-2011

Botella de 33 cl en casa ya hace varios años. Cuerpo intenso de color ambar oscuro - caoba con sabores maltosos y dulces potenciados por el volumen alcoholico. Una gran pena no encontrar ya cervezas de esta casa. Descripcion comercial y leyenda abajo: """"" En noviembre de 1992 Maudite (el maldito), fue la primera cerveza fuerte para ser distribuida en tiendas de abarrotes de Quebec. Maudite es una cerveza premium de sabor rico y color caoba que tiene un sabor peculiar y complejo. Debido al calor que libera, esta cerveza de fuerte carácter debe ser servida fresca, pero no fría. Perfecta con pastas, carnes rojas, guisos y platos especiados, sino que también es un buen aperitivo o copa después de cenar. Maudite tiene un nombre típicamente quebequés que recuerda a la leyenda de la Chasse-Galerie (la leyenda de la canoa de vuelo). La leyenda cuenta que un grupo de leñadores hizo un trato con el diablo para volar a casa en sus canoas, guiados por el mismo Satanás, para llegar a casa a tiempo para Navidad. Medalla de oro en 1995 y 1996 por el Beverage Tasting Institute de Chicago.""""

750ml bottle. Cloudy copper-amber body, big beige head with excellent retention, watery lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dried fruits, plums, sour cherry, McIntosh apples, candies. Taste dominated by yeast, candied apples, figs, plums and a lots of other dried fruits, cloves, a hint of alcohol in the background. One of my favourites.
