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.

Aroma of molasses, licorice, roasted malts. Taste of the same. No discernable hops flavor or aroma, but there is a balancing bitterness. Medium lasting roasty bitterness. Wish I could get it regularly in Ontario. Great go to beer.

Simple aroma and almost black appearance leads to a dry but easy drinking taste with tones of coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Poured from a 341 ml bottle into a pint. A very dark ale with a beige, thin head. Low retention. Tastes extremely chocolatey and caffeish, with a good bitter, dark coffee taste. Has a very persistent, lingering maltey chocolate after-taste. Texture could gain from being thicker, yet it is a very good, widely available and usually very reasonably-priced stout.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
341ml bottle, 5.5% a/v, received as a gift from my brother. Pours a lovely oily black, with a nice chestnut brown head. The aroma is of chocolate, espresso and nuts as well as some warming alcohol. The taste is very well balanced and perfect for a cool day. Nuts, espresso, chocolate and some dark stone fruit notes. Very impressive and tremendously well balanced. The palate is quite full and the taste stays with you for a long time. Great choice bro!
