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.

martin21 (155) - Quebec city, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2008
Manque definitivement de corps et de saveurs de grains rotis... une Boreale rousse plus foncee? Definitely, this stout lack in body and roasted grain aroma.

Bouteille de 341 ml. Une biere de couleur noir avec un moyen collet moyennement collant de couleur brun pale. Odeur de chocolat, soupcon fumé, toast, café bruler. Gout de chocolat, un peu d’épices et noix.

Nuffield (3761) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Big cascade effect--so slowly moving--absolutely lovely! Vanilla, light roast, not great aroma. Fluffy, rollicking, very soft palate. Notes of nuts and vanilla. Light bitterness. A decently drinkable beer for what it is but not within the style. (on tap, Montreal Beer Festival, 2008).

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2008
Bouteille de 341 ml. La bière est de couleur noir avec aucune possibilitée pour la lumière de franchir ce précieux liquide. La mousse est crèmeuse et brune. Celle-ci nous tient compagnie jusqu’à la fin de la dégustation. Au nez des arômes de caco, de réglisse noire, de chocolat, de café, de vanille et de malt grillé viennent réjouir mon sens de l’odorat. En bouche la bière a un bon corps et possède aussi une texture crèmeuse. Des saveurs de café, de chocolat noir, de vanille française, de caramel, de grain ainsi que de moke se présentent à mes papilles gustatives. La finale est étonnamment douce et très peu amère.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 7, 2008
Bottle. Very sweet, with notes of brown sugar to start, and then with touches of roasty malt towards the finish. Mouth feel is sweet and flabby. There are touches of licorice as well i suppose, but the sweet brown sugar characters seemed to dominate.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
Near-black, moderate brown bubbly head. Darl roast aroma and flavour with hints of chocolate and coffee. Moderately low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. A satisfying stout.

oakbluff (427) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle courtesy of papat444. Crimson hued stout with a huge head. Nose- little bit of sweetness. Taste- medium roast, touch of smokiness and dark chocolate. slightly burnt taste and touch of sourness. low cabonation which makes for an easy drinking stout.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma of caramel and cocoa, just a touch of sweet, dark fruit. Definitely on the sweet side, with caramel and chocolate, along with a touch of coffee and licorice in the finish. Mildly roasty, minimal bitterness. Full bodied, but a little over carbonated.
