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%.

Vignale (3210) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
Flaska från SB. Holsvart, tjock vätska i princip helt utan skum. Fin stor doft med mycket kaffe, kaffelikör, kaffegodis, fudge. Bra balans i smakbilden, stor kropp med rostade smaker, måttlig sötma, alkoholvärme, tydlig beska, lätt brända smaker. Riktigt riktigt gott.

Robe noire opaque, faible mousse brunâtre éphémère. En bouche onctueux, amère et notes de torréfaction avec un léger goût d’alcool lors des première gorgées. Une stout bien forte en goût et en alcool.

This looks and smells the part. Unfortunately it’s more on the sweet side than I enjoy. Thick but just a bit too sticky.
