A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet and again with roasted malt being most dominant, but it also has notes of chocolate.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 Very dark brown. Milky, roast barley aroma. Full body with black malts and dark chocolate. Thins into a slightly lactic finish. Slight hint of nuts. Straightforward stout.

Lubiere (9871) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2004
Dark black with moka head. Chocolate , coffee and vanilla aroma , slightly burnt caramel in the nose. Not overly sweet , with chocolate, and peaty notes, lightly smoked in mid taste. Mild bitter finish. which lingers pleasantly. Light to medium bodied, but interesting marriage of choclate and smoked. Been a while i didnt try the Noire, and my feel is, most Boreale products have gone up in quality.

hopscotch (9065) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2003
This beer rocks! Black ale which allows no light to penetrate. Medium-sized, well-tanned, creamy head with good retention. Vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon and charcoal in the aroma. Very good, rich, well-balanced, chocolatey flavor. Medium-bodied with a lightly oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Charred, dry finish. World class stuff!

Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2005
Serviceable stout, though too carbonated and a bit thin. Black with thin head, and certain stout taste. Malts right there making it Drinkable. Not too dry after all the malt. Some chocalte malt, coffee, and burnt attempt at roastiness.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
Very dark black colour with a thick brown head that quickly dissipates. Fizzy carbonation. Metallic aroma, coffee, and a bit of chocolate. Mouthfeel is quite nice however. Coffee and chocolate flavour. Roasty with a bit of bitterness.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Surprisingly smoky aroma with a touch of maple or butterscotch. The bubble accumulating on top fo black body have a caramel/dark tan color to them that seems a bit odd. A little meaty in the flavor, like a beef jerky brines in worchester sauce or liquid smoke. Gritty malts, sweet behind the wall of smoke... which itself almost seems like charred meat stuck to the grill. Not sure how else to put it. It’s a stout and it tastes good. How’s that?
