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.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2011
Bottled, thanks Bov! Clear dark brown, coarse head. Dryish with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Salt, tobacco and licorice spritzed out by slight fruity yestyness in the Belgian stout fashion. Growing bitter finish.

Plovmand (6356) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with a medium light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, light spicy yeast and toffee. The flavour has notes of chocolate, light coffee, roasted malt, light peppery and has some chipotle in the finish.

suprchunk (2177) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Dark, toffee brown color. Small creamy almost tan colored head. Minimal lacing. Smells of chocolate, raisins and plums. A slight artificial aroma, like fake chocolate. Tastes malty and cereal like. Nice and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, and a slight roastiness left behind. Decent beer.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Coffee, licorice and orangey spiciness collide in a nearly flat mouthfeel, while blackberry notes attempt to create complexity around a disproportionate roasted malt bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-There is barely a ring of foam atop the cloudy dark brown.
-This is either an unsuccessfully travelled bottle or a poorly bottled batch.
-Mild tartness also clashes with the roasty bitterness.
-Toastiness is tasted too; lots of flavors are present, but few are harmonious.
-Oh well, a rare miss from Trois Dames. I’ll keep getting their Pasionaria, Oud Bruin or Saison Houblon when possible.

Bottle.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Deep black color with a thin beige head. Aroma of licorice and spices. Flavor of licorice and spices, some bitterness in the end. Light to medium body with a vinous texture and soft carbonation.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2011
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown colour with a foamy, light beige head. Aroma of roasted malts with some herbs. Flavour of sour fruits, herbs, stomach acid, overburnt malts and some hops. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, sour finish. Very weird, maybe this has gone bad already.

Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Malzige Kräuternoten sind zu Beginn mit einer deutlichen Hopfigkeit vorhanden. Der Hopfen wird intensiver, die Malzigkeit ebenfalls. Hintergründig ist das Bier allerdings ziemlich schwach, die Kräuternoten sind milder, unterstützen das Malz aber selbst aus dieser Position. Harmonisch, lecker, angenehm hopfig. 7/9/8/9/10/9

TET (1618) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2011
Colabrown beer with a weak and brown head. Aroma is interesting and complex, herbs, roastiness, anis and fruity sweetness. Taste is roasted, some herbal nuancees, enough of sweetness, "sweet and sour". interesting taste. Medium bodied, slippery and nice to drink. Interesting, herbal and spicy beer, still spicys are only spicys and not the whole beer.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2011
bouteille 33cl Couleur brune, col épais ocre. Arôme, malt, froment, nez fruité avec comme indiqué de l’orange amer avec une touche d’épice. Je note aussi un mixe entre la réglisse et caramel le tout couvrant une amertume fruitée. En bouche, une bière intéressante qui marrie le malt caramel allant sur une note sucrée avec l’amertume orangée. Tout comme l’arôme une touche de réglisse se démarque et est complémentée par un fini fruité. Encore une bonne surprise venant de br. Trois Dames.
