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.

It smells slightly smoky and nondeScript fruit (plum / prune?). Furthermore, it smells a lot of alcohol. The taste is only slightly sour and then explode in a cascade of flavors that range from nondeScript sweet fruit of the hops, and finally a pleasant warming alcohol.

Kauge (843) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2015
Tap at Beerbistro in Toronto. Murky dark amber with a light tan head. Caramel and ripe fruits dominate both aroma and flavour. Nice warming spiciness. Crisp in the mouth. A very nice sipper.

I really like the bottle, mainly because Satan is on it and he knows how to party. It has a spice to it that let’s you know just how damned you are

tfontana (221) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is Belgian yeast, bready malt. Appearance is hazy red orange-brown with good sparkle, two finger head that shrinks but persists and negligible lacing. Taste is similar to nose, yeasty fruity esters. Palate is medium bodied with slightly slick texture and lively carbonation, fairly dry finish as with the taste.

I remember drinking this beer while drinking the afternoon into evening at a whiskey bar in Quebec City & thinking this was pretty damn fine & unlike anything else I had tried. Of course that was in the mid-90s when we thought Creemore & Sleeman were something special. Fast forward many years -- & many, many beers -- & how does this beer hold up in the hipster beer nerd 2010’s? Fancy dining table wood body with a mushy slab of foam on tap. Lots of sugar on the tongue, a bit of booze in the back & a very prickly carbonation. Has the same tired yeast profile of the other brews on their stable. Somewhat of a classic, but not really my favourite on the menu.

MarkoNm (1814) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a hazy brown color, topped with a decent off-white frothy head. Aroma is malty with caramel, some yeasty notes and spices. Taste is sweet at the start and quite malty, some yeasty notes and alcohol in the body, but not too bad. Not a bad one, passable and quite strong feel to it.

DomD (185) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aroma of fruity citrus. Pours a cloudy dark red. Light to medium sour taste. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, with an astringent finish. A very good example of the style.

TH28 (276) - - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. 4/7/15 BB date. Appearance: Dark ruby red, mostly clear, with an off white foam head. Aroma: Underlying bready, toasted malt, dominated by strong, spicy yeast esters of prune, apple, and pear. Taste: Explosion of fruity esters of prune, figs, and pears. Spicy clove. Bready and toasted malt is there, but take a backseat to the yeast. Mouthfeel: Medium body with high carbonation and a strong alcohol warmth. Finish: A sticky maltiness lingers with pear esters. Overall: Robust, very estery dubbel style. Tons of dark fruit flavor

Bottle share at Evernote. Overall notes of candied malts, raisins, sorghum, molasses. A bit too cloying and sweet for me.
