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.

Bottle. Deep amber color with a head that quickly disappears. Aroma was a mix of yeasts, caramel. The taste had a lot going on. Some sweet spots, some sour, some spicy. Overall a very complex beer but very tasty!!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2017 Very subtle aroma, though Ill admit I was congested while drinking this. Complex tastes of caramel and malt. Not overly sweet at all. Slightly bitter, smoothly carbonated finish. Very clean dubbel from a consistently great brewery.

And oldie but a goodie. Dark, murky orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Caramel, dark fruit, Belgian yeast. Good stuff.

Clean and carbonated. Has a champagne feel. Very balanced but flavor doesnt pop. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 34

gripweed57 (2159) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2017
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.

BeerRenter76 (1002) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
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

EvanFriend (570) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2017
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 isnt Rochefort 10, which the initial aroma got me hoping for before I even took a sip.

ctipping (1850) - 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 doesnt feel that heavy. Excellent, as always.

josanguapo (1564) - SPAIN - APR 11, 2017
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

Idiosynkrasie (7317) - 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.

SG111 (1692) - 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 Ive had from Unibroue, especially in this variety pack, its overly effervescent, but still one of the better ones Ive had from them.
