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.

CapFlu (4959) - 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

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.

Bamsen78 (4689) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you! Pours cloudy very dark brown with ruby shades and airy but rocky and stable off-white head. Dark, fruity aroma with notes of malt, caramel, and chocolate. Sweetish, fruity and slightly vinous flavour, with notes of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Roasty and slightly vinous finish. Good, although it tastes more like a Barley Wine than a Foreign Stout.

mile (3634) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2011

bottle... dark brown, not much of a body for a ris, big light tan tan, great retention and lace... the aroma is super roasted, a bit of char and chocolate as well, smells weirdly carbonated, reminds me of a danish stout, weird hot grassy finish... the aroma is tolerable but the taste is not, harsh char, weird grass not a good beer at all
