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%.

ej (1214) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a dense, medium, dark-tanned head. Aroma of roasted grains, chocolate, liquorice, soy and hints of balsamico. Taste is well balanced. Some caramel-sweet maltyness, moderate bitterness from roasted grains and hops and some salty elements aswell. Finishes quite bitter with a lingering roasty, coffee flavor. The alcohol is well hidden. Nice imp stout this one. The body is full with a slick texture. Co2 level is avg.

Bawelt (462) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 11, 2016
Trčs sur la torréfaction ! Nez absolument superbe, trčs café, caramel, chocolat, un fond vanille (quasiment bourbon), un léger fond réglisse. Bouche finalement un peu décevante par rapport au bouquet. Attaque ronde, caramel et légčrement vanillée. On passe sur une amertume légčrement houblonnée puis on passe trčs rapidement sur une sur-torréfaction qui lui donne un sacré caractčre et une longueur trčs café et chocolat trčs noir. Elle porte bien son nom.

adster (641) - HUNGARY - MAR 6, 2016
Szurokfekete testű, tetszetős, bézs színű habot produkáló kanadai főzet, melynek fő nyomvonala a pörkölt jegyek mentén halad mind illatában, mind ízében - a pirított magvas, hamus, égetett háncsos karakter főszerepet játszik a sötét hangulatú, inkább férfias, mint édesszájúaknak való stílusjegyek előadásában. A füstös mondanivaló egy olajos textúrájú, telt ízű malátafolyamba ágyazva kerekedik ki, melynek sodrását egy sötét tónusú karamelles, égetett cukros partszakasz szegélyezi, a zárást pedig egy nem kevésbé komor, karcosan komlós torkolat adja. Az extrém ízvilágra vágyók számára talán nem a legemlékezetesebb alkotás, az a fajta imperial stout ugyanis, amely letisztult, klasszikus formátum hordozója.

Bottle. Near black pour with a thick creamy brown head. Rich roasty aroma, smoke, and dark chocolate. I’ve been able to have this fresh and with some age on it... Aged is rich roasted malt, smoke, and bittersweet cocoa. Some hints of dark fruits, maybe cherries. Fresh has more hop character. Reminds me a lot of Expedition.
