COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nearly black with ruby glints and a creamy head, Boréale Noire is a full-bodied stout. Its rich velvety taste suggests dark chocolate and roasted coffee with hints of licorice.

Not sure how I never rated this before. This stuff is more burnt toast and liquorice than chocolate and coffee, though I get notes of all four, plus something vaguely fruity. Nice texture, but I wouldn’t call it full-bodied. Solid and serviceable, but lacks a little something. Still, for $9.99 a sixer, the "qualite-prix" ratio is pretty high.

Franckg (986) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
En fût. Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un col de mousse beige crémeux et bien défini. Arômes de café au lait, crème, malt grillé et léger chocolat. En bouche, café latté, chocolat au lait, noisettes, pointes de houblons. Texture onctueuse et corps moyennement rond. Bonne bière dans le style. Accessible et pas chère.

olio (8877) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2015
341 ml bottle. BBE 28.04.2015.
Pours deep dark red color with a small head. Loads of licorice on the aroma, some dark malts, dark chocolate notes and maybe faint salmiac too. Sweet malts and salmiac on the flavor, some licorice, coffee notes, chocolate and some very faint citric fruit notes, there’s even some slight smoky notes also. Velvety smooth oily palate, slightly old but doesn’t affect the end result at all. Lovely.

Bottled 341ml (Saveur)
Dark brown color, small off-white head. Aroma has dark chocolate, cardboard and toasted maltyness. Medium-bodied. Light lactose in the front, chocolaty with hints of sweet licorice. Milk stouty. Ok.

leghorn99 (205) - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 21, 2015
Il colore è nero con leggeri riflessi ambrati; la schiuma è sottile, beige e di poca persistenza. Al naso si presenta con aroma di caffè freddo e cioccolato, leggera presenza di malto tostato e di affumicato. Al palato, sapori di chicchi di caffè, cioccolato, noci tostate e caramello sono ciò che più emerge. Il corpo è relativamente leggero, molto acquoso per lo stile. Una leggera amarezza, che ricorda il caffè, si fa sentire nel finale. La finitura lascia un’impressione di secchezza sulla lingua, come ci si aspetterebbe da una Dry Stout.

Idiosynkrasie (6055) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
341ml bottle. Jet black colour with small to average, frothy to cremay, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma, notes of liquorice. Taste is dark malty, slightly chocolately, subtle sweetness, minimally buttery with a toffee touch. OK.

Calisky (2400) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 6, 2015
Couleur noire, très légère mousse beige. Nez de malt et chocolat doux. Gout malt noir, chocolat cremeux et doux avec un corps épais et onctueux, fin de bouche legere amère de café avec note de fruits secs. Superbe!

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Six-pack bought at the grocery store. I’ve been buying quite a bit of this QC stout lately - pours a deep brown/black, with red hints when held up to a light. Less head than many stouts (actually a nice change from the pillowy nitrogen-foam heads from many canned stouts these days), thin and coffee-coloured, hung around all the way to the bottom of the pint glass. Nice lacing. Aromas of coffee, roasted barley, leather and licorice. Very little hoppiness, ever so slightly sour taste. Emminently quaffable.

erickok (5096) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2015
Dark to black body, stable head. Dry, toasted, burned bread, cereal. Too lightly hopped for my taste. Especially with its bubbly yet softly carbonated body. Okay stuff. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

Sehr dunkelbraune Farbe, ordenltiche braune Schaumkrone. Geruch schokoladig, erdig, röstmalzig, wenig rote Beeren. Geschmack süß röstmalzig, viel Karamell, Vanille und Schokolade, lecker!
