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.

If I could bathe in this stuff, Iíd drink my own bath water. Also getís pointís for having Satan on the label. I always try to put Satan on my homebrew labels. What can I say, heís the man! Strong malty flavor with a very noticable alcohol taste (which I love inb any beer). Very nice hop characteristics as well & some interesting fruity esters. I guarentee this beer is a cornocopia of flavors.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with medium white head. Has a strong aroma of spices and. Taste is very spicy -- like drinking all the flavors from my herb garden. A unique, good taste. Beer was medium-bodied and slightly dry.

This Canadian ranks with any of the Belgians in my book. Very smooth and drinkable, but you can still take your time and get some comlexity out of it if you want to. Thank you Albert for nailing it right on the head...Nutmeg! I couldnít put my finger on it. If this was the only ale I could get, I would be quite content

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2003 Oh yeah...it smells absolutly amazing, I just loved the sweet spicyness, lets see, theres some fruity sweets of orange peels, some nutmeg, ginger, clove, belgian-like yeast, and heck though in some roasted peppers. Then the taste is super rich and creamy smooth with lots of spicy action and tingly sweetness with a great roasty caramel malt backing thats very bold and smooth. The spice is peppery and fruity. Its got alot of things happening in the taste and feel, its just great to sip and ponder what the hecks all in this thing. The feel is medium heavy bodied, solid, silky smooth and a little bit creamy, that starts sweet, citrusy and malty then goes into the spice level and fades nicely into a fresh and drying bitter hop. Nothing here is overwhelming or overpowering, its all balanced in so softly its hard to phathom.

Had a few shared qualites with Don De. It is almost like a witbeer but darker. Let it warm for the full flavor to come out. It has a nice sweetness with a noticable wheat-citrus feel. Easy to drink very fragrent and nice color. All in all excellent even if I am not sure what style it really is. Belgian strong is too broad and I have many that are very different.

Almost no alcohol taste is apparent even though it comes in at 8%. Great hazy pour with an off white head. nose of banana and spice. slight spice on the initial taste, very clean and refreshing on the palate.
