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.

Best by 05/19/19. Pours dark murky red/copper color, off-white head. Aroma is plum, fig, cherry, caramel, maybe some Belgian esters, a little cinnamon, slightly oxidized, prune. Nice dubbel notes without being too much. Flavor is caramel, fig, dark fruit, mild Belgian spices. Not too estery (which is good), prune. Like every beer Ive had from Unibroue, especially in this variety pack, its overly effervescent, but still one of the better ones Ive had from them.

Dark orange pour with a white head and medium lacing. As the banana esters one expects in a Belgian. Clears the palate well with a bit of bitterness and a bit of astringency. The alcohol is not really noticeable in the flavors, but the after affects are felt!

Murky brownish color with off-white head. Aroma has mostly brown sugar and belgian yeast with a hint of dried fruits. Taste is quite balanced, slightly sweet at first but balances out towards the finish. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Overall its a tasty, well balanced belgian ale.

Another Belgian-style from Unibroue who I think a lot of. First time to pour out of a bomber into my favorite glass, a Chimay trappist. Be careful to pour slowly because it billows out a large off-white head of foam that is a great lacer. Its color is a dark golden-amber. The scent is truly enticing, fruity, mango mostly, and hard candy. The taste is fairly straightforward, malty, dark fruit, perhaps a bit of biscuit. Not near as complex as Trois Pistoles, a personal favorite from the brewer, but still fine.

hmm, Ive had this one a number of times before and quite enjoyed it, but unfortunately the one I got to taste for this rating seems to have been skunked or something cause it wasnt quite right. Still, Im gonna be a little more generous with the points than I would otherwise because this seems more like a fluke than anything. The smell is surprisingly wheaty and sour. The color is still a nice dark amber. The flavor was a little flatter than normal, still belgiany yeast vibe, but very smooth and creamy. The palate was still good, solid mouthfeel, etc. Overall, this has never been my fave from Unibroue, but Ive always liked it a lot and I hope that next time I buy one, its more in the 4+ range I remember it being in.

Unibroue est capable de produire des bires de qualit. Cette Maudite na rien envier aux bires des abbayes belges. Elle possde la douceur et les rondeurs que nous recherchons constamment dans ce type dalcool. Elle est notre Marilyn Monroe, forte et bien roul, ce nest quune petite maudite. Selon moi, elle est de loin la meilleure bire de cette brasserie. Elle a tout pour plaire aux amateurs de double. Parfait pour tre encore en boisson!

jsporrer (882) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Pours a hazy medium brown with an off white foamy head. Light carbonation and plenty of lacing. Aroma of vegetables and spices like celery and coriander. Crisp and smooth with a semi sweet caramel taste along with the vegetable and spice flavors. Smooth finish and a light lingering aftertaste. Interesting but not as good as I expected. Hides the alcohol well.
