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.

In Québec, you can get it for 7,99$ per 6-pack. Still, it is one of Québec’s finest stout, another good brew from that former microbrewer, that success has not corrupted yet. Very well-balanced stout, with high carbonation, rich texture in bottle (I remember liking it a lot on tap many years ago) and appropriate dominant coffee taste, with notes of chocolate and licorice, as they say, but it is the pretty intense bitterness of that beer that makes me like it very much. At least as good then the St.Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, just with their own personnalities.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle from Deppaneur Rahmann. Pours a deep jet black with a very hefty mocha head. Aroma is sweet with dark fruit and chocolate. Thin bodied with a lot of roast coming through. Roasted bitter finish. Nothing exceptional, but not too shabby either. With a little thicker body this would be pretty strong.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 Bottle, really dark color, head a bit small but still there. Hard to find distinctive aroma (for my unexperimented nose). I would say roasted malt. Flavor would be light sweet. Nothing really distinctive about this beer. Well balanced. Rating no 5, 2009/02/01. Re-rate 090621. Aroma is big roasted malt. Some coffee as well. Taste is roasted malt. A bit smoke maybe. This is roasted malt all around. Body felt a bit thin for my taste. Some sweetness not too much. Refreshing. Aroma 5 to 7. Flavor 5 to 7. Overall 12 to 14.

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.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2008
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 (3912) - 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).

Bottle from Fripon, Old Montreal. Black body with decent brown head. Raosted ashiness with chocoloate and brown sugar. Slight tartness towards finish.

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.
