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.

mathieuc (1145) - Québec, Quebec, - DEC 25, 2012
Aroma of grains and yeast, not a sign of hops there. Oily with a moderate carbonation, it ends up feeling creamy. Taste is moderately sweet with again not much hops showing up. I remember it being a whole lot tastier... it must be because I tasted a lot of things since then. It is good and warming but not fantastic. The classic Unibroue signature is showcased here and it is just getting old.

Vivant au Québec, comment j’ai pu passé à côté de cette bière pendant aussi longtemps? Une excellent bière de type belge au goût épicé pétillant et mordant. Le côté sucré cassonnade est formidable lorsqu’on se liche les lèvres. De plus, elle est jolie à regarder avec a robe brune qui lui donne une allure d’appéritifs digne de ce nom. Pas pire pour une bière acheté au hasard chez IGA par ma mère pour faire plaisir à son fils qui n’aime pas la Coors Light:)

Bière brune orangée, bien voilée, effervescence de bonne à forte, surmontée d’un large col beige, bien mousseux, dense et persistant. Arômes de pain légèrement grillé, pâtisserie, caramel/cola, sucre d’orge/réglisse rouge, petits fruits foncés très mûrs, voire confits (raisin, bleuet, mûre, cerise, prune…), levure belge (typique Unibroue!), quelques agrumes (citron surtout, effluves légèrement acide…), un peu d’herbe, et d’évidentes épices (anis, clou de girofle, piment de la Jamaïque…). Très beau nez, très belle complexité, très bonne intensité. En bouche, pétillement élevé, breuvage légèrement mousseux, très bonne onctuosité, c’est riche, soyeux et velouté au palais, très belle rondeur. Au goût, ça rejoint pas mal le nez avec peut-être un peu moins de complexité. Saveurs de grain rôti, pain grillé, pâtisserie, avec du sucré type caramel/cola, léger goût de bonbon aux fruits, touche de petits fruits foncés très mûrs, avec levure belge et épices chaudes (anis, clou de girofle, piment de la Jamaïque…). Il y a quelque chose de résolument plus frais en arrière-plan, légèrement citronné et herbacé, fort probablement le houblon qui amène avec lui une amertume subtile, tout juste perceptible. La finale est plutôt épicé avec parfois quelques notes alcoolisées apportant un effet chaleureux et réconfortant à la bière. Ma préférée depuis toujours chez Unibroue, j’en ai bu des quantités étant jeune adulte et alors pourtant peu intéressé par les produits de microbrasseries. Peut-être la bière qui a planté la graine qui germa des années plus tard?
