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.

courtesy of Laurent Mousson - dark black colour with a solid foamy dark beige head; nice lacing; the nose is fairly roasted with aromas of black chocolate and oranges; quite full malt backbone, tasty and slightly sticky; some sweetness, a decent bitterness introduces a long chocolatey, slightly spicy and gently fruity finish - nice shot again from Raphaël!

brewslurp (18) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 16, 2010
33 cl. bottle. Description on their website says this beer is in the style of the Schwarzbiers of Germany’s Black Forest. However, I find it to be more like a Baltic Porter. Anyway, nice head. Dark brown almost black color. Aroma of light hops and burnt malt. Taste is sweeter with a nice balance between chocolate/dark burnt malt and hops. Very drinkable, good beer.

Ungstrup (29278) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2010
Bottled. A reddish chestnut-brown beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, caramel, nuts, and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of citrusy hops as well as some notes of roasted malt, alcohol, and chocolate, leading to a very bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Travlr (11807) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, tasted side by side with the apricot schnapps barrel aged version. This was sweeter, more caramel, pepper, butterscotch. Less complexity. More drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet dark caramel and raisin nose with some plum notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and a light carbonation with a soft lightly sweet milk chocolate flavor and roasty bitterness. Finishes drier and bittersweet with some dark chocolate notes and coffee. An enjoyable and drinkable imperial stout.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2011
330ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
7 Lovely aroma - really brown toasty malts, sweetish, but not sugary, some cocoa, and a hint of bacon. Please may this be good, it starts so promising.
4+ Lovely dark red, so dark you’d initially think it’s black. Hard to coax a head out of it, but you do get a small beige one if you try.
7+ Malty retronasals, which carry through to the central taste, accompanied by just a tiny hint of bitter hops, noble, but a little leafy.
5 Lovely and smooth palate, gentle carbonation crispens it nicely. Heavently finish - no hint off any alcohol vapours, just rich roast malt
15 What a wonderful stout. So drinkable but so full. Humming with all the right notes in perfect harmony. No spices, herbs, or vegetables to be seen (and lookey here - it even says "imperial stout" on the label).

crossovert (7385) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. It pours a dark brownish black with an off-white head. I always enjoy stouts that look this way with the black and white combo. I like the smell of this one, it does indeed have some spices which add to the goodness, but it is primarily a sweet and cocoa-y brew with a nice bit of caramel and roasted malts. There is also a hint of hops. The flavor is fruitier with a nice bit of roasted malt. To be honest the hops in this are a bit overt, but then again they work well. IT is reminiscent of their hoppy porter. I would say if you like something like nightstalker, this is a bit weaker, but very tasty and similair. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-15-2011 03:10:18

TET (1641) - 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.
