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.

kramer (5914) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that left a bit of lacing. The nose is really quite interesting. Not sure if I like it or not. It smells a bit more like grape jelly than beer. Not sure what kind of spices are used here, but they are certainly overpowering the malt in the aroma. The harder I try, the more I get a little roast and chocolate, but it’s in the background. The flavor is a little sweet and spicy with some dark roast malt. Lighter bodied for an Imperial Stout, a touch clingy on the finish, with soft minimal carbonation. Not really my kind of Imperial Stout, much like the coffee one that I had from them. Makes me want an Expedition Stout.

vyvvy (5895) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and a tan head that looks like it has craters all over it. The aroma has cream, dark fruit, berries, roasted malt, green apples and spices. Medium body that’s quite light for an impy stout and it has mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with star anise, roasty malt, cinnamon, berries and mild alcohol. The finish adds some powdery spices and chalk. Nice beer that is somewhere between a regular stout and imperial stout with spices added. This seemed to have a bit of age on it, but aging gracefully.

wlajwl (5845) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Aroma is malts/cocoa and spices/vegetables. The flavor is malty, a mix of chocolate and caramel as well as having a slightly spicy flavor with thankfully no vegetables in flavor. Not as strong in body or flavor as normally expecting with an imperial stout, could be due to the spices, otherwise this was pretty good, but not exceptional.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of frothy tan colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind an opaque brown colored body and no lacing. The odd aroma was mild spice and dark malt. The vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The thin flavor contained notes of mild spice dark malt and breads. An OK brew just nothing special.

9/10/2010 5:19:17 AM On tap at Moeder Lambic. Dark brown with top tan head. Malty sugar nose. Taste of wheat, sugar, caramel, citrus. Quite watery and oily. A bit odd, really.

reebtogi (5762) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
330ml bottle pours a dark brown color with some red highlights and a thick light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with some fruit. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with some fruit and roasted malt bitterness and very little hop presence. An interesting imperial stout with the presence of the fruits, but still quite delicious.

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.

On tap @ Moeder Lambic, Brussels. The aroma has coffee, toffee and roast. Slightly hazy, red-brown coloured beer with an off-white, creamy head. The taste is sweet with a bitter finish. It has coffee, toffee, roast and some raisin. Nice.
