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.

Strykzone (5534) - 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.

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.

kramer (5360) - 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.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2012
0.33 l bottle. Dark reddish brown. Aromas of orange and chocolate with hint of cola. Smoothly roasty flavor with coffee and chocolate, faint orange. Smooth palate. Nice orange-chocolate feeling, could have a dash more orange.

skortila (4826) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2010

reebtogi (4818) - 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.

CapFlu (4781) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
(33cl bottle) Day2 of the 2012 Advent Calendar. Pours a medium beige head atop a black body. Nose of sherry, red licorice and cocoa powder. Very sharp, sour front with a grainy yeast mid-palate. Not sweet and totally different aroma from flavour. Hides the 7.2% ABV exceptionally well. Good. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com
