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.

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.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2012

Medium spice and dry chocolate flavor with a medium soft sweet finish of moderate duration. Very soft brew.

Travlr (9999) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - 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

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - dark black colour with a solid foamy dark beige head; nice lacing; the nose is fairly roasted with aromas of black chocolate and oranges; quite full malt backbone, tasty and slightly sticky; some sweetness, a decent bitterness introduces a long chocolatey, slightly spicy and gently fruity finish - nice shot again from Raphaël!

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2011
330ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
7 Lovely aroma - really brown toasty malts, sweetish, but not sugary, some cocoa, and a hint of bacon. Please may this be good, it starts so promising.
4+ Lovely dark red, so dark you’d initially think it’s black. Hard to coax a head out of it, but you do get a small beige one if you try.
7+ Malty retronasals, which carry through to the central taste, accompanied by just a tiny hint of bitter hops, noble, but a little leafy.
5 Lovely and smooth palate, gentle carbonation crispens it nicely. Heavently finish - no hint off any alcohol vapours, just rich roast malt
15 What a wonderful stout. So drinkable but so full. Humming with all the right notes in perfect harmony. No spices, herbs, or vegetables to be seen (and lookey here - it even says "imperial stout" on the label).

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2010
33cl bottle. Poured a dark and deep amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of cocoa, roast, and some floral/earthiness. Tastes of roast, some dark fruits, and caramel.
