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.

Sampled years ago but the rating somehow got removed. Dark cherry-cola pour with an eggshell crown. Bready, biscuity, yeasty, sweet with raisin and plum. Meh.

2010 (4 and half years old) 750 ml bottle.... wow I know one thing about that beer ... let it age at least 3 years old !!! dark hazy redish/amber color . not as much of an head than a young one but that’s what I would expect from a 4 years old beer. the caramel clove smell is a bit more shy but more complex and much more enjoyable. the taste is amazing, very grainy, no bitterness at all, the alcohol is absent from the taste. The first glass feels very delicate(since the yeast is all at the bottom of the bottle)the second one is very different. much more tasty and mellow, unibroue’s yeast age so well. very rich sweetness! wow. one of Unibroue’s flagpole since the start!! what is amazing with this beer is that you can match it with almost any kind of food ! cheers

341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Amber body with frothy off white head. Aroma of plums, caramel, slightly bready, some malty notes. Fizzyness coats the mouth immediately with the warmth of elevated alcohol. Raisins, Plums, Earthy, some malty sweetness.

330 ml bottle into a tumbler. Pours a deep hazy mahogany with a lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of plums with a bit of caramel. Rich and sweet in the mouth; warming, but not boozy. A touch of sour finish. Delightful.

750ml bottle served in an oversized wine glass. Big bready spicy plums & raisins very rich. Full bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel. The taste is tangy plums, bready & spices. Very fruity Belgian goodness. A Quebec classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Unibroue classic since 1992, this Belgian-style heavy ale boasts a complex and tempting aroma of chocolate, cocoa powder, gingerbread, banana, orange and cloves; sweet taste, deep maltiness, exciting spicy notes, warming alcohol finish. Very well-made, very satisfying and better than many actual Belgian examples of the style.
