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.

Head dissipates really quickly. Maple brown appearance. Only detect malty aromas. Sparkly, light mouth feel. Molasses flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very attractive dark caramel brown with persistent head and light lacing. Aroma is caramel with some banana. Taste is sweet and malty, with notes of banana, gingerbread, and light cherry. Finish is earthy and mildly boozy. Quite nice overall.

AleRider78 (899) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
341ml bottle. Poured an average size foamy, bubbly head and has a dark hazy amber colour. Thin layer of head sticks around till the end. Has the usual yeasty Unibroue aromas, very much citrusy. Flavours of darker malts and hops. Very tarty. Dry fruits. Hint of caramel. Not as strong as expected, and pretty smooth for a higher abv brew. But then almost to be expected coming from Unibroue. Great tasting, smooth and strong beer. Good stuff.

Adamsville (277) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Cuivre, reflets rouges, limpide, effervescence leve et rapide, beau col blanc cass avec une bonne rtention et laissant une lgre dentelle. Nez : Malt caramlis, pices de la levure belge, lgrement fruite de type fruits schs (raisins secs ou encore dattes). Intensit acceptable. Got : Mme malt caramlis avec les pices dominantes, corps sucr, petite amertume en finale. Sensation : Effervescence moyenne, corps moyen, chaleur dalcool prsente, lgrement piquante partout en bouche, finale assez longue amre et pice. Bref : Bire Unibroue encore caractrise par cet quilibre entre le malt caramlis qui ne semble pas tre mon prfr et la levure apportant des notes pices dominantes qui ne me convainquent pas ncessairement non plus. De plus, elle est un peu mince. Malgr tout, cest une bire qui est bien bonne et qui se boit bien. Jesprais peut-tre seulement plus.

Fruity Belgian ale aroma. Light hazy cinnamon color with an off white head. Sweet fruit spice taste. Hint of zing in the finish. Drinkable and refreshing for a darker beer.

MrMeadMan (75) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours an odd brown-orange color with a thick tan head. Nice malty aroma. Good mouthfeel and great flavor. Malts predominate over hops. Definitely a buy-again brew!
