COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Bise Noire est de retour, à ceci près que la bête a été adaptée pour mieux s’insèrer dans la gamme de la brasserie. Fermentation haute de couleur noire, avec un mélange de malts spéciaux calibré pour lui donner le corps, la rondeur et la présence indispensables à une bière d’hiver, sans pour autant sombrer dans le doucereux. Elle titre 7,2%, donc prudence. Cette bière est brassée de septembre à mars.

Black Bise is back, except that the animal was adapted to better IMPRINT in the range of the brewery. High fermentation black, with a mixture of special malts calibrated to give it body, roundness and needed a winter beer presence, without falling into the bland. It as 7.2%, so caution. This beer is brewed from September to March.

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle, Dec 2 Beer Advent Calendar. Dark brown pour, with a light brown head that initially soars, but fades rather quickly to a thin ring without any lacing. Aroma is more sour than anything, but not harshly so, with some burnt malt hanging around the edge of awareness. Light dusty cocoa in here too. Some spice on the deep inhale. Didn’t know what to expect, but it wasn’t this-- more interesting than I anticipated. Palate maintains the sourish identity, with light flavours of raisins and leather, roast takes a back seat. Light is the operative adjective here-- for a beer that boasts an ABV exceeding 7%, the body is woefully thin, edging on watery. Lightly bitter finish.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Day 2 CBAC. Very dark brown with a thin head. Aroma has a sour tinge, light spice and dark malt. Flavour is very similar. Malt body is strong up front, a sour tinge and some finishing spice. Spice has a bit of heat.

330ml brown bottle. Beer #2 from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Dark brown, beige creamy head, a few light spots of lace in the glass. Nose has chocolate malt and light spicy yeast. Taste is malty, muted cocoa, light roasted notes, slight lemony tang, slight woody note. Dry finish, some bitter chocolate and mild spice. Medium body, medium carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent, reminds me of a porter.

lupulist (48) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a thick colour with a fully dissapating white head. Aromas of dark malts, dried fruit, and cocoa. Lighter mouthfeel than the colour suggests. Tastes of anise, malts, and is very slightly sour. A very nice winter sipper!

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Ultra dark red/brown with a big bubbly light tan head that lasts. Strong nose of a bunch of things that don’t work well together for me. Meat pie, choco, roast, Chinese spices, cardamom. I think it’s that background choco tough and the meaty quality that irks my senses. When its much warmer the choco is a good counterbalance. Taste is, well, different. Tastes the same as the aroma with a sharp tang that has some thinness. Not a fan.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium-brown with a short-lived, yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted chocolate and black malts with plenty of cardamom, vanilla, and some herbs around.. fresh, greener hoppy accents.. welcoming. The flavor found well-toasted chocolate, vanilla, and molasses notes at the core.. cardamom, cinnamon, and lightly sour malty notes around.. finished with warm spices over molasses and a touch of maple. Medium-bodied with a spotty flow through the palate.. more tart/sour toward the back-end.. OK feel and flow.. decent beer.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Bottled (thanks K.S.!). Deep murky brown colour with a mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is ashy, chocolaty with some roasted malts and mild herbal and wooden notes. Flavour is sweetish grainy maltyness with some slight spices, roast, mild earth and some slight berries. Also some slight alcohol to be noted.

TEJA (1376) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle at omhper, thanks. Coarse light brown head. Dark brown-red color. Dry roasted malty aroma with strange beef broth. Black malty taste with chocolate taste.

Merrill (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle from Binny’s. Has the appearance and aroma of a stout much lighter than any "Imperial" I’ve seen. It’s a lovely medium dark brown with a fine lace. The aroma is earthy, oakey with a slight sharp alcohol tang. Perhaps some fermented berry. The mouth is milkier than the color tells. Old wood in the flavor again with alcohol bite and a little natural whiskey background. It’s ok, but I probably won’t buy it again at the price

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2012
Aroma more like a porter, chocolate roast and stewed earthiness. Looks like a dark brown ale. Starchy malt flavor with some strange spicy after notes that linger like pepper after a meal. Not too thick either. I guess I’d call this a winter warmer, but not a stout.
