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.

Clearly one underrated product and perhaps the best beer of Les Brasseurs du Nord. The beer was Noire and had a proper head. Dark Chocolate, Roasted Coffee and Hints of licorice were definitely there! This is amongst my favorite beers for this time of the season. It has something comforting, a bit like taking an afternoon tea.

Dark black with moka head. Chocolate , coffee and vanilla aroma , slightly burnt caramel in the nose. Not overly sweet , with chocolate, and peaty notes, lightly smoked in mid taste. Mild bitter finish. which lingers pleasantly. Light to medium bodied, but interesting marriage of choclate and smoked. Been a while i didnt try the Noire, and my feel is, most Boreale products have gone up in quality.

Very dark black colour with a thick brown head that quickly dissipates. Fizzy carbonation. Metallic aroma, coffee, and a bit of chocolate. Mouthfeel is quite nice however. Coffee and chocolate flavour. Roasty with a bit of bitterness.

Very dark beer with a root beer float head. Sweet malt nose with some roasted grain and licorice. Surprisingly light body for the look of the beer. Some roasted coffee bitterness that coats the tongue in the finish. Some notes of licorice and fruit cake. Very tastey beer. Thanks to my Secret Santa.

Via trade with Lubiere and Capflu. Deep brown in color with a tan head. Nice roasty aroma. Malty flavor, and sweet but finishes clean. Drinkable.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Via trade with Lubiere and Capflu. Deep brown, tan head. Nice roasty aroma. Flavor is mallty sweet up front, but fades quickly and finishes clean. Not much to it, and could use a little more character.

Dark brown to black in color. Smallish tan head. Coffee, cream and caramel aroma. Vanilla and light coffee bean mix in a light liquid. NInts of grass and light licorice. Seems to get sweeter as it goes. Not really my kind of stout.
