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.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Surprisingly smoky aroma with a touch of maple or butterscotch. The bubble accumulating on top fo black body have a caramel/dark tan color to them that seems a bit odd. A little meaty in the flavor, like a beef jerky brines in worchester sauce or liquid smoke. Gritty malts, sweet behind the wall of smoke... which itself almost seems like charred meat stuck to the grill. Not sure how else to put it. It’s a stout and it tastes good. How’s that?

Jet black with burgundy notes and fast fading rocky chocolate brown head. Roasted malt nose with slight tinny notes. Roast malt taste with some coffee notes and slight tinny hints. the tinnyness seems to fade as it warms.

Great looking beer - jet black with a tight frothy head. Smells and tastes of a dark roasted malt.A lingering coffee-like bitter finish. Medium body and a smooth silky texture. All in all a very good experience.

Poured a thick black oily colour with hints of red in the light. Had a thick head that reminded me of chocolate mousse, but it did disappear too quickly. Very malty aroma and a v.v. good smell. Nice bitter edge to it and a chewy texture. Would have again!

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2006 Bottle. I like that one. Deep black color with ruby reflection and tan head. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Taste of malt, roasted oats and dark chocolate (reminds me of a chocolate stout), good carbonation and bitterness, very good stout. J’adore cette petite stout, je la savoure a chaque fois. D’une couleur noir opaque avec des reflets rouges et un collet brun mocha. L’odeur de cafe et de malt griller est tres perceptible. Au gout, elle est malte, avoine grille, chocolat noir (goute autant ou sinon plus que certaine stout au chocolat), bonne amertume et le niveau de gaz carbonique ets bien dose. Tres bonne stout.

Bouteille de 341 ml. Arôme: Présence de café torréfié, de caramel et de chocolat. Apparence: Couleur noire opaque. Petit col beige mousseux qui perdure. Bonne dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Légère touche de sucrée au début qui va en s’intensifiant. Durée de l’arrière goût moyen. Palette: Texture crèmeuse. Bizarrement je perçois en arrière goût une sensation de lait. (Rating #65)

Hummm !!! Very good !! Nice very dark beer with a brown frothy head. Aroma of yeast and coffee and very pleasant taste of roasted malt with a nice bitter finish. Very enjoyable.
