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.

marcus (6420) - 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.

Plovmand (6348) - 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.

mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma is fruity, nutty and spicy, with some dried fruits (dates, figs), toasted bread and some undecipherable spice notes. Flavour is quite fruity, with the dates, figs and cherries, toasted bread, some spiced notes, and some nutty qualities. Certainly doesn’t taste like a stout or even a spiced ale - not sure what this is, but I suppose it’s alright for what it is.

lusikka (6184) - 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.

BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle and served in my Expedition snifter: Pours a deep russet brown with minimal head nor lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, roast, walnut, plum, anise, light smoke and oak, herbal and grassy hops, with a quick dash of mineral oil. The taste is rather mundane with slick sweet malts, touch of coffee and chocolate, char, and dark fruits before a light handed hop bitterness comes about during the finish. The mouth feel is also very underwhelming, thin and sort of flat. The only Black Wind I get from this is a gust of wasted money flowing out of my pockets. Oh, exactly why is the not listed as a Stout? If there are indeed any spice it would be Star Anise and even then not enough to list this brew as a spice brew, not even close.

laiti (5604) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 07.05.2011
Aroma has very roasted malt, some fruity notes and spices. Flavour is somewhat sour with too roasted malt, some fruity notes and herbs. Sour and too roasted – that combination just doesn’t work. Feels actually like a Belgian stout.

Dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Sweet chocolate molasses and dry spice aroma and taste with some heat to the finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bruin body with an off white head, with okay lacing left behind the pour. Very malty body, malt syrup, sweet, bourbon esk, old oatmeal mush. Hop character is totally oxidized, leaving a leaf y and metallic finish. Past prime i suppose.
