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.

Aroma of fish, alcohol, grape skins. Pours with a beautiful brown-beige head and a ruby-black body. Extra points for the small baggy of roasted malts, which means this one gets a perfect score in the appearance department! Taste is a huge chocolate sunday rush with a coffee finish. Palate is a little too sweet for my liking, though. This is a very good stout, nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a mostly black body with an off white head. Light creme and vanilla a bit sweet with chocolate, licorice, and light coffee tones. Creamy and minerals with a drying finish. Nice.

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Originally rated November 2005. Pours a pitch black colour with no sign of ruby highlights. The brown head is thick, creamy, foamy and fizzy with great retention. Smells hints of caramel, roasted malts and molasse. Bitterness throughout with a smooth finish. Then, bitterness comes around in the background. Smoky notes in there too, and not sweet at all, nor too dry. More on the coffee side, than on the chocolat side. Great generic stout with a smooth taste and a good alcohol content.

341ml bottle. pours almost black with a thick tan head that quickly fades. leaves minimal lacing. aroma is roasted malts and some faint notes of chocolate. taste is all chocolate. a little thin and watery for my liking, but at $7.99 for a 6 pack it’s a good beer for when you’re with your casual beer drinking friends.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 Bouteille 341 ml. 5.5%. Couleur noire, mousse beige. Arôme de malt grillé, chocolat noir et café. Goût de chocolat noir et espresso. Onctueuse en bouche, bonne. Finale sans réelle amertume. Très douce en bouche. Excellente. Un classique

MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Pours black with shades of ruby, forms a somewhat bubbly tan head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate and fruits (black cherries). Taste is still very chocolatey, but suprisingly roasty and smoky as well. A little watery for a stout (not that it tastes water at all -- it’s just a little thin). Pretty round finish. Noticeable sweetness. I wouldn’t call it an everyday beer at all, but an everyday stout?

DerWeg (1538) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
Deep dark brown color and tan cap look the part. Aroma is mainly fruity with phenols suggesting spice. Taste is closer to sweet stout, showing fruit and dark sugars, very measured roast and coffee character, a bit of earthy spice. Is arguably a bit watery. A light-bodied quaffer for the toe-dippers.

pours oily black with a creamy tan head head and nice lacing. Aroma is pure chocolate. Flavor is coffee and cream. Warm, sweet finish. Nice.

SlovakSniper (3544) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2010
Liquide noir avec une belle mousse beige. Nez et bouche de malt rôti, de cacao, de café et touche de vanille. Présence de fumée et de réglisse en cours de dégustation. Le liquide est de densité moyenne à forte et sa texture est soyeuse. Petite amertume. En résumé, agréable.

kubilai (111) - , Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2010
Pours with a dark robe and a beige foamy head that is quickly gone. Chocolate aromas with notes of butterscotch and toffey. Very smooth and silky with a vanilla finish.
