From a 500 ml bottle into a pint. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Smells very strongly of maple, maybe also brown sugar. Taste is real MAPLE, all over my mouth, yet in very reasonable quantity, which rarely is the case with most French Canadian maple beers. Probably helps that this one has such a high alcohol percentage, as the alcohol definitely helps balancing the sweetness. Thus, very sweet, yet far from nauseating, very nice, thick texture and pleasant carbonation. Loved it. Definitely a different kind of tasting experience, yet I would not recommend it on a warm day.

La Louis Gaborit, bière forte à 9% d’alcool, affiche une belle robe brun chocolat ayant des reflets roux, assez opaque. Une mousse ni timide ni très généreuse coiffe le liquide. Bouquet de résidus de sucres, d’érable (subtil), de malt, bref cela s’apparente à une scotch ale. Très bonne présence en bouche, c’est puissant et équilibré. Soupçon d’érable dont l’équilibre, à mon sens, est parfait : ni trop sucré ni pas assez. Goût de malt grillé qui ressort en finale : décidément, cette bière aurait très bien pu se nommer ’’Scotch ale à l’érable"...Belle complexité : produit saisonnier qui m’a beaucoup plus et qui vaut la peine d’être goûté. Cheers!

Odeur; une bonne whiff the sirop d’érable. L’étiquette ne ment pas. Belle robe brun fonce avec mousse crémeuse à souhait. Sirupeux eu bouche, épais et enveloppant. Chaud (alchohol) et bien sûr sucré; du sirop d’érable sans complexe. Je conçois que ce n’est pas pour tous le monde, mais moi j’adore. Pour ceux qui aiment les bières sucré.

500ml bottle. The pour reveals a cloudy, brownish dark amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is mostly about maple syrup, there’s also some caramel and fruity esters. The flavor is sweet, as I would expect from a maple-flavored beer, there’s a maple presence along some caramel and fruityness. The body has a light to medium thickness, but the texture is boring. Overall, it’s an interesting beer.

500 mL bottle from Depanneur Peluso in Montréal, served in a snifter. Pours clear reddish brown with a small tan head. The head fades slowly but leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are aromas of caramel, molasses, maple, toasted malts, flowers and resin with a hint of anise in the finish. The flavour begins moderately sweet and becomes slightly more so through the middle. It acquires a light bitter flavour towards the finish. The finish is longer than average, with a slight hint of anise and hop bitterness. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a creamy-syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice ale. The maple imparts an enjoyable, complex sweetness up front. The anise in the finish clashed a bit with the maple sweetness. A decent beer worth another try. 2010-09-11

500 ml bottle from Depanneur Peluso, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Very cloudy deep brown-amber with a fair orange-tan head. Aroma: Tons of rich caramel, toffee, treacle, some dark dried fruits with bright notes, big brown sugar veering towards molasses, maple syrup comes to mind...power of suggestion?, some esters poke through as it warms; so malty that it could be a Doppelbock or some kinda kicked-up, Americanized version of a brown ale or something equally malty. Palate: Medium-full body, moderate prickly effervescence. Flav.: Surprise....more rich malty notes! Lots of caramel/toffee/treacle, brown sugar,a bit fruitier than the nose, a bit brighter too, some alcohol comes through (not to a point where it is objectionable), definitely some brighter fruitiness, there are those esters as the very end; sweet with a little bitterness and a boozy, sweet, malty finish.

Highly enjoyable.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy brown color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light residual sugar with some good notes of caramelized Belgian malt. Taste is also a mix of caramelized Belgian malt with residual sugar. Maple syrup is not a huge factor in this one. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with limited character.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2011
Bouteille. D’une couleur cuivrée foncée surmontée d’une épaisse mousse beige affichant une bonne tenue. Arôme de sucre, de réduit d’érable et de malt. Saveur de caramel, de malt rôti et de réduit d’érable mais aucune note d’alcool. Un profil très simple mais tout de même une bonne bière.

Bouteille 500 ml. 9%. Couleur brune brouillée. Mousse beige. Arômes de pruneaux, levures et un peu de céréale. En bouche, notes de fruits rouge, un peu sucrée, malt, orge. Le sirop d’érable est par contre très bien caché. Notes de cassonade et d’alcool. Bonne .
