COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Grande Noirceur is an intensely black and dense beer with pronounced roasted flavours. The bitterness is very imposing but is balanced by a malty-caramel taste. The alcohol content is quite high, but its presence remains discrete in this beer.

ABV initially 8.5%, changed in late 2012 to 9%.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Served way too cold! Deep black color with hardly any head at all. The nose is smoky liquour and coffee cake, chocolate and honey nut cereal. Some spicy cinnamon. The taste is very vinous, loads of delicate port and bitter chocolate. Boozy vanilla and grape skin. Full bodied and quite hot for the 8.5% abv. Nice though.

thewolf (10767) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours black with a lovely, creamy brown head with great lacing. Aroma has cocoa, vanilla, coffee, roasted malts aplenty. Lowish carbonation, nice dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of roasted malts, cold coffee, hops bitterness, grainy dark chocolate. Lingering bitterness from both hops and malts. Amazing Imperial Stout when you consider the ABV.
