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.

Reimer96 (1743) - 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.

Bottle to tulip Aroma of chocolate, toasted malt, ash, fruity esters, and coffee. Black with a creamy tan head. Dark fruit, sour cherry, brown sugar, and toasted malts.

Darkover (1534) - 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.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2012
Aroma more like a porter, chocolate roast and stewed earthiness. Looks like a dark brown ale. Starchy malt flavor with some strange spicy after notes that linger like pepper after a meal. Not too thick either. I guess I’d call this a winter warmer, but not a stout.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle@Home. Quite malty aroma. Brown, off-white head, fair lace. Malty, light bitter, toffee. Balanced, flavourful and easy going.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - DEC 2, 2012
Advent Calendar #2. Hm quite sour, like sucking on a few lemon seeds. Aroma has some chocolate in it, too. Lots of carb when hitting the mouth, maybe the sourness is making it seem more extreme. Hm there seems to be some dry overlay but overall the finish seems quite sweet&sour a la lemon juice. Worried about this being headache inducing. Different for its chocolate/lemon qualities. Not a "dark wit" (???) as I was expecting. Nice to try but I definitely would not like another. Hm.

eduardovl (1283) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Nice Trois Dames specimen but I was expecting a bit more from an Imperial Stout. A: Deep caramel color with a medium bubbled beige head when poured. Reasonable retention. Dissipates leaving some lacings around. A thin beige layer remains for some time S: Sweet and sour (bit orange acid). Roasted malts and plums. Spicy end T: Sweet upfront. Roasted malts. Plums. Fresh hops. A bit sour. Nice bitterness M: Medium body and carbonation. No alcohol D: Good [ BA Review @ 8/10/2010 ]

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Gusher! Pours a very dark brown letting just a little light through, a large tan head that settles but lasts and leaves some bits of lace on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and some dark dried fruity esters. Flavour is roasted malts, bit sour/tart(lactic acid like), mild chocolate, ashtray and a bit watery.

King_Alex_II (1052) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Pitch black with brown/beige foam. Roasty, chocolate coffee nose. This beer is more cold coffee than beer. The taste is dry, the carbonation is moderately and quite decent. The taste is slightly oily/creamy and almost dusty, like small powder particles were in there. The roasted malts result in a beverage you can use to counter the caffeine rush from your good night coffee without changing the taste. I don’t like coffee, so for me this is an agreeable version of carbonated water infused with 2 or 3 filled coffee filter. Better than suspected, worse than hoped, more or less as expected.
