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.

Bottle at the courtesy of Nick. High fluffy long lasting light brown head leaving nice long lacings. Hazy very dark red brown body. Mild dusty choccolate roasted malt aroma with a hint of liquorice. Liquorice choccolate citrus caramel roasted malt flavor with a spicy dry note. Long carbonation. Long aftertaste.

Strykzone (5066) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Quite dark with plenty of red. Absolutely no head and only a very thin ring on the glass. A thin and unique aroma. It is odd vegetable and peat. Flavor is also odd. Deep earthiness, some hoppy sourness, some kind of vegetable stuff. Some soy sauce and dark fruit. A bit of that peat emerges on the finish. This is just not one that I want to try again.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet dark caramel and raisin nose with some plum notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and a light carbonation with a soft lightly sweet milk chocolate flavor and roasty bitterness. Finishes drier and bittersweet with some dark chocolate notes and coffee. An enjoyable and drinkable imperial stout.

Travlr (13269) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, tasted side by side with the apricot schnapps barrel aged version. This was sweeter, more caramel, pepper, butterscotch. Less complexity. More drinkable.

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours black with a thin beige head and an herbal aroma. There is a sweetish dark malt flavor with a strange vegetable taste and dry bitter finish. Not very pleasant.

jtclockwork (8912) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Seems more like an imperial stout and labeled as such. Pours black with slight tan head. Nose is licorice, grape and roasted malts. Taste of licorice, roasted malts and chocolate.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle says both "Imperial Stout" & "Ale Brewed With Spices", so it could be in a couple of categories. Anyway, poured with a small, light tan head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a hazy, very dark, almost opaque, brown. Aroma is roasty and malty. Flavor is simple and like aroma. I don’t pick up much in the way of spices - perhaps cinnamon. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is like flavor and short and just a bit of alcohol at the very end. Not worth the price.
