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.

Clean and carbonated. Has a champagne feel. Very balanced but flavor doesn’t pop. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 34

From old tasting notes. Cloudy Amber orange color. Thick, rocky beige head. Sharp, yeasty, spicy malt nose. Interesting soft, silky sweet toasted malt flavor hints at peppercorns and currants. Bittersweet finish with a cloying malty aftertaste.

Originally rated on 12/20/2008. Maudite pours a deep brown body with a good mid sized cap that left some good lace. Flavor and aromas of dark sweet fruits like cherries, plum, raisin, and slight citrus hints. went down nice and smooth, not my favorite from the unibroue company, but a good brew none the less

Smells amazing - almost as good as Rochefort 10. Taste is disappointing by Rochefort standards, but still very good - starts out with caramel, then moves into a subtle spiciness, then ends on a mildly tannic note. This is a very good beer, but it isn’t Rochefort 10, which the initial aroma got me hoping for before I even took a sip.

ctipping (2299) - Florida, USA - APR 13, 2017
On tap at Das Biergarten. Hazy amber body. Smells bready, sweet caramel malts, strong and fruity yeast aromas. Tastes of bready, sweet malts, red apples, banana, spice, and a sharp yeasty back end. Medium bodied. Dry, so it doesn’t feel that heavy. Excellent, as always.

From Saveur Biere. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Los Soprano 6x03. Caramel with a pleasant effervescence and a nice warming feeling. A good dubbel but not something amazing like their tripel

3.6
Idiosynkrasie (8333) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2017
341ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, darkest amber to mahogany colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma has notes of pear, hints of yellow apple, a touch of raisin, sweet-ish wheaty and oaty background. Taste is moderately sweet, yeasty fruity, notes of pear, hints of yellow apple, a touch of raisin, some peppery yeasty spiciness; minimally overcarbonated.

3.7
SG111 (2167) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2017
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 I’ve had from Unibroue, especially in this variety pack, it’s overly effervescent, but still one of the better ones I’ve had from them.

Aggie80 (832) - Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2017
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!

3.3
ciocanelu (3197) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 20, 2017
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 it’s a tasty, well balanced belgian ale.
