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.

This beer is brewed from September to March.

VertBaconStrips (2200) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Ultra dark red/brown with a big bubbly light tan head that lasts. Strong nose of a bunch of things that don’t work well together for me. Meat pie, choco, roast, Chinese spices, cardamom. I think it’s that background choco tough and the meaty quality that irks my senses. When its much warmer the choco is a good counterbalance. Taste is, well, different. Tastes the same as the aroma with a sharp tang that has some thinness. Not a fan.

Grima (2195) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2011
Into the glass pours an almost pitch-black beer, which only allows very little light. The head is flat and short lived. The beer smells chocolaty, slightly smoky, malty. The beginning part is stout-like, pleasant roasty, with well pronounced chocolate notes, paired with a mild smoky taste that seems very pleasant. The aftertaste is chocolaty, fruity, light berry notes come through. The course is pleasant chocolatey, with delicate nuances of smoke, not too intrusive, but still with punch! I like it definitely!

TET (2167) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2011
Colabrown beer with a weak and brown head. Aroma is interesting and complex, herbs, roastiness, anis and fruity sweetness. Taste is roasted, some herbal nuancees, enough of sweetness, "sweet and sour". interesting taste. Medium bodied, slippery and nice to drink. Interesting, herbal and spicy beer, still spicys are only spicys and not the whole beer.

Nickls (2002) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle. Thinner slightly tan head on a very dark, reddish brown color that has some orange highlights around. Some light spiciness in the aroma, some light fruit, faint hint of citrus and some yeastiness. Tastes a bit sweeter than in the aroma, but lots of flavor does show up after quite a muted aroma. Nice wintery spice, touch of fig and toast. Nicely warming. Mediumish body with vibrant carbonation. Little syrupy, but in a nice way. Really comes through with the taste.

TEJA (1744) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle at omhper, thanks. Coarse light brown head. Dark brown-red color. Dry roasted malty aroma with strange beef broth. Black malty taste with chocolate taste.

Lagerboy (1581) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 33 cl bottle. Hueless dark brown, mocha foam settles. Aroma of chocolate and medium roast. Tart chocolate, medium roast malt taste, vinous dark fruitiness. Softer carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. DNFL (Definitely Not for Lagerboys)

Reimer96 (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown with a small brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lace. Aromas of a sour cocoa with some spice. Taste is sour dark chocolate with some raisin and hints of vanilla and cinnamon on the finish. This body of this beer is very light on the palate which is very surprising for a >7% beer.

Darkover (1528) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. Taste is pretty sweet and a little sour, medium body, thin for a stout. Ok.
