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.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 11-5-12- Poured from bottle into Delirium Tremens Tulip glass Appearance – Pours a deep ruby/mahogany color with a big cream colored head. The head fades leaving a modest level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell - The aroma is a blend of fruit, booze, bread and yeast. The strongest are fruit aromas of a red wine grape smell with apple and orange mixed within. With all these aromas is also a spice aroma which goes quite nicely with the bready and yeasty aromas. Taste – The taste begins bready with some spicy flavors. The brew quickly sweetness as the fruit flavors detected in the nose come to the tongue. It begins with the apple and orange coming to the tongue, with the red grape soon following. The wine like characteristics get stronger. More red grape comes to the tongue and is accompanied by an increase in the alcohol flavor as well. In the end these booze and wine flavors, when mixed with some of the breadiness and spice from the beginning of the taste creates a very warming feel on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. They are quite nice for the style with the carbonation nice for the fruity flavors of the brew. Overall – A fruity and wine like brew with a good bready and boozy taste. Rather tasty and enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 appearance of bottle (label and gold bottleneck) just not corresponding with the beer itself. pours a thin rapidly disappearing white to beige head with a very nice reddish-brown blurred colour. funny, but i smelled hints of tuna in the nose. first sipp was very nice. aftertaste unfortunately becomes more and more metallic the warmer the beer gets. a very nice beer. also tastes like a very good dark Weizen. don’t look at the bottle too much, focus on the beer.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Hazy, murky dark amber. Chilled honey, a little onion, then honey - lots of honey - in the nose. Sweet, malty and heavily fruity taste. Full-bodied, mildly carbonated, long, red apple finish.
