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.

330ml brown bottle. Beer #2 from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Dark brown, beige creamy head, a few light spots of lace in the glass. Nose has chocolate malt and light spicy yeast. Taste is malty, muted cocoa, light roasted notes, slight lemony tang, slight woody note. Dry finish, some bitter chocolate and mild spice. Medium body, medium carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent, reminds me of a porter.

Clear very dark brown, head cover, and streaks of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt, light spices and butter rum entering midway through the palate. Slight bittering at the finish, not quite enough to balance. Fair, not really good.

Bottle: Pours a lighter than expected brown and despite my best efforts produced no more than a tiny ring of brown head. The nose is light and airy, slightly sweet. Vanilla and cocoa with faint roast. A little bit of spice in the taste, but I can’t pinpoint anything. Modest roast and light floral bitters.

Bottled 33cl. Very interesting nose which has plenty of character: Reminiscent of orange, sangria, grapefruit, caramel and condensed milk. I definitely prefer the nose to the taste. Long complex finish where some caramel, licorice and butter shows up. Not entirely cohesive in my opinion.

suprchunk (2671) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Dark, toffee brown color. Small creamy almost tan colored head. Minimal lacing. Smells of chocolate, raisins and plums. A slight artificial aroma, like fake chocolate. Tastes malty and cereal like. Nice and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, and a slight roastiness left behind. Decent beer.

Bottle. Pours a dark burgundy that can be deceivingly dark in the glass with it’s darkness inducing and thus contrasting tan,sudsy head. Smells fairly sweet and bourbony with cookie-like spices intertwined throughout. It seems to smell a lot thicker than something of 7.2% abv. Flavors are balanced with nutty notes, lots of caramel, and other malty characteristics, some vanilla maybe and some cookie spices. It is medium to full bodied but seemingly thicker when you think about the alcohol level and it still remains pretty luscious considering that and I actually think the combination of spices here, whatever they may be, is done quite well and surprisingly harmonious. Not too shabby. I could do with more prickly and pronounced carbonation though as the rather unlively mouth makes it taste a bit flabby and muddled after a while...but still not too shabby.

Geruch nach Schokolade, malzwürzig, Orange, Röstaromen. Antrunk sanft-malzig, alsbald rauchig-schinkig. Gleichzeitig fruchtig, Orange. Bittermalziger Abgang. Ungewöhnlich, wirkt etwas unruhig - dennoch über dem Durchschnitt.Test vom 19.6.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Bottle says both "Imperial Stout" & "Ale Brewed With Spices", so it could be in a couple of categories. Anyway, poured with a small, light tan head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a hazy, very dark, almost opaque, brown. Aroma is roasty and malty. Flavor is simple and like aroma. I don’t pick up much in the way of spices - perhaps cinnamon. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is like flavor and short and just a bit of alcohol at the very end. Not worth the price.

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Almost clear dark brown color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is roasted chocolate and flavor is chocolate malt. $6.00 for a 330ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Gerbeer (2401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with full tan head. Aromas of cocoa powder, heavily roasted malt, raisins, and copper piping. Flavors of roasted malts, light chocolate, light cooked vegetables, and tobacco. Lighter body than I expected. A tad thin and metallic.
