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.

Pours pitch black into the sinha glass. Bottle from Jadoreblanche. The ghead is mocha and frothy, and full of life. Huge milky chocolate aroma, tobacco, some fruit, black coffee, espresso. FLavour profile is sweeter than expected. Lots of chocolate, sweet coffee, toffee, plum, a touch of smoke and hops. Nice smooth creamy finish makes this one perfect for after dinner.

Black with a beautiful tan head, looks lovely in my Big-rock tall stout-glass. Very familiar aroma... slightly sweet, some hops, slight off smell... Very familiar taste, too... thin and sweet, some hops and some roastiness, crystal malt in there too... I know! This tastes just like my homebrew! Too sweet to be a dry stout (poorly attenuating yeast?) Nice roastiness about it, creamy body, but holy diacetyl, Batman! This stout, as does my homebrew, tastes like a work in progress. Points for effort!

robinvboyer (3067) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2007
very very dark, almost black, nice light brown head. this should be in the dry stout category. nice and dry with LOADS of roastiness. I’m getting a bit of a sour funk, but i’m enjoying it though. nice bitter/roasty malt finish. great stuff.

On tap in Quebec City. Excellent stout. Dry and roasty, smooth dark malt flavors offer the texture and drinkability of Guinness but with a significantly creamier and fuller body, richer flavors and a good aroma. Excellent stuff, though I have a feeling the bottle will not be as good, as it’s not from nitro..

nolankowal (926) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle courtesy of gonzobeer, thanks again! Oily black pour with a fizzy tan head that turns to film. The aroma held smoke roasted malt, some sour chocolate, coffee, a bit of smoke. The flavor was roasty malt, some strong coffee notes along with bitter chocolate giving that light sourness. Overly carbonated over the tounge taking away richness from the body. Very smokey and roasty in the front, some bitterness in the middle through the bitter/roasty/clean finish. The rich roasted malt sticks to the tounge, so when everything seems to have gone that nice warming flavor comes back. The best parts seem to come out a bit more as it warms...the coffee almost becomes liquor-like and I imagine that would be even more so if the carbonation wasn’t so damn high.
