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.

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.

Bottle@Home. Quite malty aroma. Brown, off-white head, fair lace. Malty, light bitter, toffee. Balanced, flavourful and easy going.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - 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.

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.

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 ]

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
Pours a dark, near-black brown with a huge loose head - waaay over-carbonated! Aroma of prunes, iron, light funk, kind of sickly sweet. Light coffee flavour, sweet malt, metallic hop finish. Thin, watery body and over-carbonated. It got better as it warmed, and might taste better a bit stronger or with more body.

Dark pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is bakers chocolate, dates, brown sugar. Medium bodied, creamy mouth feel. Flavour is cocoa, dates, coffee, a little lactic. A tad thin. Borders on the lines of a milk or sweet stout. Okay.
