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.

750ml cork bottle poured into a duvel glass around 10 degrees. Pours a hazy fiery copper with two fingers of creamy head. Retention is pretty good and the head leaves nice spotted lacing as it reduces. The nose is fruity and spicy with the signature yeasty feature found in Unibroue’s products. You also get a little booze which I think is nice. On the tongue, the brew breaks down with fruit cake, banana, cloves and alcohol. It has good corpus and leaves the palate with a lingering liquorish finish. I enjoy this ale from time to time and I always keep a few bottles in my cellar. You can leave it on the shelf for 5 to 8 years according to Unibroue’s website and if you do, it develops even more fruity and liquorish elements. Cheers!

In spite of breaking the cork off and then forcing the bottom half into the bottle (Happy New Year!?), this poured a cloudy reddish brown with a slight zip in the taste. The aroma isn't overwhelming nor is the taste unpleasurable. Gentle red ale that is slightly tangy with a nice taste. Good beer. And since it is Canadian, it goes very well in the winter while listening to Rush. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark Bronze pour, off white head which falls quickly. Nose is yeast. Bittersweet. Middle is plum and pencil shavings. Finish is lightly dry from both hops and yeasts.

Pours a dark murky color but is pretty tasty and really smooth to drink. Would drink again.

MunBro (821) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Dark brown/amber pour with a creamy foam head, nice lacing. Tons of flavours going on here, very strong almost wine like notes of plumbs immediately followed by a rich malty brown sugar profile, fading into sugars and other dark fruits at the end of the palate. Very nicely done.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Brune un poil orangée, voilée. Mousse blanc-cassé relativement persistante, lacings. Aromatique très complexe, bien fruitée, épicée coriandre, maltage légèrement caramel, levures et légère impression d’alcool. En bouche on retrouve cette même complexité, plutôt sucrée mais sur la fin très légère acidité et sécheresse bien intéressante. Fin de bouche assez incroyable de balance et complexité. Bonne carbonatation, il y a du corps.

Dark, hazy brown-orange. Not really catching much of a smell? Rich, tangy, sweet, then dry. Very crisp yet smooth flavor.

On tap at Rhubarb- dinner with parents. A thing of beauty. Exceptional. Pours a rich mahogany with an off white head. Decent lacing. Literally makes the mouth water. It’s like they took Fin du Monde and made it even rich, deeper and more complex with some darker malts and some magic. Lots of yeast, spice, dried fruit (raisin, plum, apricot), toffee, caramel, pumpernickel bread. Light sourness adds complexity and interest. Sweetness is there but finishes somewhat tart and dry. So much going on. Must get more. Delicious.

341 ml bottle. Aroma: caramel, toffee. app: clear red with creamy tan head. Taste and palate: medium body, lively carbonation, medium sweet finish. Overall: a great beer that I tasted a hundred times and it’s still good
