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.

Smoothsippin (48) - Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pours a cloudy amber with a beige head. Slightly sweet on the nose. Smooth into the mouth with a sweet/spiced swallow. Very little bitterness. Nice crisp finish/aftertaste. Tastes a bit like a brown ale to me, it more complex with a smooth delivery, but not heavy. Very good. Will have again.

dnicolaescu (1933) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 24, 2016
Shared BOTTLE 341 ml. Dark red, big light beige with low retention. Baked apples with hint of nuts, sugar and alcohol. A bit straight forward. Sugar, cooked fruit, some heat, no hops. Kinda simplistic - sugar and booze.

Head dissipates really quickly. Maple brown appearance. Only detect malty aromas. Sparkly, light mouth feel. Molasses flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very attractive dark caramel brown with persistent head and light lacing. Aroma is caramel with some banana. Taste is sweet and malty, with notes of banana, gingerbread, and light cherry. Finish is earthy and mildly boozy. Quite nice overall.

AleRider78 (628) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
341ml bottle. Poured an average size foamy, bubbly head and has a dark hazy amber colour. Thin layer of head sticks around till the end. Has the usual yeasty Unibroue aromas, very much citrusy. Flavours of darker malts and hops. Very tarty. Dry fruits. Hint of caramel. Not as strong as expected, and pretty smooth for a higher abv brew. But then almost to be expected coming from Unibroue. Great tasting, smooth and strong beer. Good stuff.

Adamsville (198) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Cuivrée, reflets rouges, limpide, effervescence élevée et rapide, beau col blanc cassé avec une bonne rétention et laissant une légère dentelle. Nez : Malt caramélisé, épices de la levure belge, légèrement fruitée de type fruits séchés (raisins secs ou encore dattes). Intensité acceptable. Goût : Même malt caramélisé avec les épices dominantes, corps sucré, petite amertume en finale. Sensation : Effervescence moyenne, corps moyen, chaleur d’alcool présente, légèrement piquante partout en bouche, finale assez longue amère et épicée. Bref : Bière Unibroue encore caractérisée par cet «équilibre» entre le malt caramélisé qui ne semble pas être mon préféré et la levure apportant des notes épicées dominantes qui ne me convainquent pas nécessairement non plus. De plus, elle est un peu mince. Malgré tout, c’est une bière qui est bien bonne et qui se boit bien. J’espérais peut-être seulement plus.

Smell: spicy, caramel, toffee, fruity, very yeasty. Palate: slightly bitter, crisp/bubbly, coffee, hint of banana. Finish: spicyness lingers w/some hoppy bitterness and an earthy/peaty note. (bottle code A15162025Q)

rjplumer (985) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Fruity Belgian ale aroma. Light hazy cinnamon color with an off white head. Sweet fruit spice taste. Hint of zing in the finish. Drinkable and refreshing for a darker beer.
