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%.

dwyerpg (5223) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 8, 2016
This looks and smells the part. Unfortunately it’s more on the sweet side than I enjoy. Thick but just a bit too sticky.

Well balanced flavour profile with a slightly acidic taste which lasts throughout the entire palate. Dark almost black color with a fine brown head that stands well

ninecats (403) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle. Deep dark/black with a brown slowly dissipating head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, sweet vanilla hint. Taste is very roasted dry cocoa, espresso, close to ashy, firm bitterness, very faint sweetness but that is overpowered by the bitey, roasted, ashy, bitterness. Big body, medium carbo. A bit rough.

A very dark ale with a small head. Aroma of faint cocoa, licorice, vanilla, and chocolates. Taste of dry cocoa, smoked malts, and hay. Bitter finish, full of cocoa.

ansalon (2450) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2016
Pours matte black with a moderately sized tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, muscovado sugar, dark fruit bread, fudge, roasted nuts. Taste is enormously well balanced with roasted chocolate and dark malts along with slightly smoked leathery tones. Mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and rich with moderate carbonation. Great stuff!
