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.

Thank you Jim Daley. Great sipping beer. Clear brown color. Off-white head that quickly subsides. Aroma of root beer, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of banana. Smooth, creamy, taste. A strong bit of alcohol makes this one a bit boozy.

gpekar (494) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Poured a cloudy mahogany with a 2" creamy head. The head dropped to just a film over about 5 minutes leaving some light lacing. The aroma was mild with malt, dark stone fruit, bit of a tart citrus scent and some spice. The beer had a slightly light texture with a nutty flavor at first. The flavor is very smooth with a bit of a tangy taste and just a hint of some sour. The beer is very smooth, mild and easy drinking.
