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.

Another good beer from Unibroue and even their best one according to some observers including me. The brown/orange color is a is a pure delight for the eyes like the flavor is for the mouth. Is a strong beer with high alcohol percentage so you must respect it.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Orange/brown color,small white head that faded quickly but left behind a decent lace.The aroma was fruity,sweet and maybe just a touch sour with a decent raisin like hint as well.Very nice flavor of fruit and malt medium sweet with a nice carbonation to make all the flavors dance on the pallate.I know the alcohol is there but not very strong,but fairly well hidden with just a light warming as it goes down.Very nice brew and i have to Thanks Mr_K for sending this one my way.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 A classic from Unibroue. Strong orange-brown body topped with nice, dense and long-lasting brew. Strong but very pleasant malty and spicy nose. This is a strong and robust beer that hides the alcohol pretty well. The perfect "winter warmer".

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 Had this in Toronto on tap and recently in the corked bomber bottle. Fantastic rich malt flavor in this belgian style ale. Hilarious label art of the flying canoe. Reddish-brown in color. High alcohol. Grab a bottle whenever you see it and it gets better with age.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 12, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 Maudite was my first Belgian Strong, and it was love at first taste. Beautiful deep brown, with a huge lacy head. I couldn’t detect the ABV it was so smooth. Rich fruity, sweet flavor lasted after each swallow. This is an excellent desert beer.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 9, 2004
This brew pours a murky, russet brown with a prodigious, big bubbled off-white head. Its a pretty beer. Aroma is stinging of solvent, that and a musky, malty candy like sweetnesss. Mouthfeel is full bodied and malty, slightly astringent. Somewhat citric notes and creamy body make this an easy drink, but the alcohol can be felt readily. Some deep, sweet over-ripened berries are understated, that and a candy like fruityness. Not a session beer, but a splendid apertif.

SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Don't get confused by the canoe pictured on the label. This isn't "Sex in a Canoe" beer. Rich brown muddy color with a flowery malt nose and complex malty yeasty flavor. Smooth on the tongue with alcohol and sweetness in the finish. Another well made Unibroue product.

shaeffbser (70) - Vail, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2004
nice cloudy body with a fine white head. fragrant, sweet, yeast aroma. slight apple taste beneath malty yeast flavors. The palate goes from light to smooth and full of body. Overall a great beer for the price.

4.1
Crockett (1139) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2004
Red brown pour, cloudy, off white fine beaded head. Aroma has some roast and clove with yeast. Body is quite nice. A decent ammount of pepper, dark chocolate, apples and other fruits. Cider and Cardomom. Very Tastey.

Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2004
Bottled. Foggy amber body with a dirty brown head. Slight sweet aroma, hazel nut and a little bit of dryness. Doesn’t really show the alcohol.
