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%.

adster (680) - 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.

Released today, March 4-2016, at #Systembolaget, Sweden.

I pour the beer at almost room temperature because I think I get tho most out of the stout then.

It is pure black with a huge, more than three finger high, mocca-colored head that leaves just a little bit of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Oh... this is beautiful! Dark chocolate, molasse, brown sugar, vanilla, ash, roasted malt, dark bread and some oak.
Taste: A lot of sweetness and a bunch of bittersweet, dark chocolate! Coffee, roasted malt, oak, vanilla, dark fruit, cocoa and dark roasted coffe.
Mouthfeel: Strange... It IS a full body but still so light!? Light carbonation. Heavy, thick bitterness that stays in my mouth, back at my tongue forever!
Creamy and smooth - It just begs me for another sip...

Some meaty teriyaki stuff, light soy sauce, prunes, raisins, rum, light blackcurrant, ash, toast, charry stuff, espresso, treacle, some red wine, dark choc, something salty... Loads going on. Well balanced. Tasty stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
