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.

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)

mgermani (1000) - 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.

andrewturba (999) - 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.

eduardovl (865) - 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 ]

RumRunner101 (793) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
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.

Nik925 (754) - California, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Flat...hardly any carbonation. Great aroma with good chocolate and cherries. The malt is really good, but it is so flat that it really represents a problem. The flavor does’t really come out. This might be a shipping problem, and this might be an amazing beer in Switzerland, but it wasn’t that great for me.

sulawang (627) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Visual: Pours dark brown with a slight purple hue, small & lasting very creamy head, a bit of lacing, a decent layer of retention, lots and lots of active streams. Nose: light roasted brown sugar malts, hints of chocolate and coffee. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: crisp, incoming acidity Mid-palate: unexpected sourness, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) cola, light roasted bitter malts, lemon-grapefruit citrus acidic-sourness Finish: soft bitter hops mixed with lingering malty bittersweet sourness. Summary: Decent flavour but I just can’t fall in love with such a sour stout.
