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.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2003
Small off-white head. Redish/copper-coloured. Pleasent aroma with plenty of fruit (mostly peach), also alcohol. Full body. Taste is sweet (again some peach?), a little spicy and with a late, light bitterness. Good.

haukur (1970) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 a very yeasty and fruity aroma, some hints of nuts. Taste was very smooth, yeasty and fruity. Some hints of citrus, banana and apples (??) and a slighty sour finish. A very complex brew and an excellent beer!

jonas (7748) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Phenolic banana nose. Cloudy amber, not much head. Tastenotes include peaches and bubblegum. Quite different from other Belgian strong ales, you could almost think it is a weizenbock.

Fairly subtly spiced, yet flavorful. Just a hint of ginger, a bit more nutmeg and allspice added to a chewy brown sugar dough. A touch of citrus kept the beer from getting too sweet. I think if one was expecting a really huge flavor sensation, disappointment would result. Forced myself to spend some time with this brew to pick up the subtleties I am apt to miss. Perfect appearance and aroma; fit the style perfectly.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2003
This beer pours a light brown color with a moderate head and a small amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma was tart with hints of fruit and spices. The taste was a little more tart than I would prefer and it has a bit more bit than I expected - the spices are very apparent in the taste also. I did not enjoy the aftertaste as much as the actual flavor. This beer is just ok - I wouldn't highly recommend it.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2003
cool label: the canoe trip to hell. i've been on one or two trips like that, tho being wet on a canoe trip is more likely than burning up, i find. no flaming misery in this drink either: a cool toffee colored beverage attempts to conceal a baja dust storm of ragged blowing debris. head foamed like a sprinting camel at first, and it sounded like bacon sizzling, but the bloated bubbles burst leaving only dotted fossil-like lacing on the glass. combination cinammon roll and lemon tart aroma, bath oils, lavender and rose oil baby powder. ya just wanna drop a sweaty weight belt in there to make it a little manly. first half of the glass has extroverted effervesence, but with a little patient nursing, the internal boilers chill and the carbonation becomes almost docile. (tho the last pour has some dirt-like detritus). sweet and tart, strong and bitter, lemon-soaked graham cracker pastry, alcohol and stick cinamon. finish is brief with biterness and acidic bourbon breath.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2003
I would place this somewhere between a tripel and an abbey strong: plenty of orange coriander, but also a wee bit of raisins and caramel. Comparable to Victory V12. A nice beer, but a horribly tacky label.

3.8
Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Cloudy orangish color.Sweet aroma with a hint of spice. Flavor is a spicy malty pepper taste.Alcohol makes it's way in at the end on the finish. A good beer by Unibroue.

3.5
MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Orangey colour with a strong, lasting head. Alcohol is hidden quite well in this one. Excellent belgian ale from an excellent brewery.

3.5
frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Hazy orage apperance. Sweet, buttery, slightly alcoholic aroma. Pretty much all of the characteristics that came through in the aroma also came through in taste.
