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%.

Un ou deux verres sur place au cours des dernières années. Cette fois-ci, quelques bouteilles dans le confort de ma maison qui me permettent d’écrire cette évaluation qui n’est surtout pas professorale: Une robe presque noire et sa tête brune foncée qui résiste à tout. Un nez de malts rôtis, de torréfaction et de caramel avec des effluves de vanille et de chocolat. Des saveurs possédées par des notes rôties avec du café et des houblons amers dans lesquelles viennent se fondre des morceaux de caramel et du chocolat vanillé. Un corps accessible, de moyenne densité avec des bulles qui se comportent avec modération et une texture crémeuse à souhait. Une finale amère de grains rôtis et de houblons sur un murmure cendré.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Black with a tan head. Aroma of charcoal, chocolate, some dark fruits, smoky note. Bittersweet roasty flavor with charcoal, some chocolate, a bit of smoke, a bit of dark fruits, a bit of soy sauce, and a bitter finish. Full-bodied. Very good.

341ml Bottle. Small long lasting head, pitch black color (Grande noirceur is right). Aromas of vanilla,lactose, resinous hops. In mouth, the grain dominates pretty much everything followed with dark chocolate flavors and bitterness. the finish is quite smooth. very good brew, cheers!

SaintMatty (6470) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2016
341ml Bottle - Black with a tan head. Liquorice, plain chocolate, roasted coffee and some smoky hints in the aroma. Smooth, luxurious and roasted taste with coffee, liquorice, plain chocolate and roasted malt detected. Some smoky notes are also in the taste but not as noticeable as the smoky notes in the aroma. Very easy to drink for a beer of this strength.

Vignale (2994) - 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.
