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.

Grima (2089) - 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!

wlajwl (3807) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Aroma is malts/cocoa and spices/vegetables. The flavor is malty, a mix of chocolate and caramel as well as having a slightly spicy flavor with thankfully no vegetables in flavor. Not as strong in body or flavor as normally expecting with an imperial stout, could be due to the spices, otherwise this was pretty good, but not exceptional.

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Almost clear dark brown color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is roasted chocolate and flavor is chocolate malt. $6.00 for a 330ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Bamsen78 (3079) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you! Pours cloudy very dark brown with ruby shades and airy but rocky and stable off-white head. Dark, fruity aroma with notes of malt, caramel, and chocolate. Sweetish, fruity and slightly vinous flavour, with notes of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Roasty and slightly vinous finish. Good, although it tastes more like a Barley Wine than a Foreign Stout.

Bottle. Pours a dark burgundy that can be deceivingly dark in the glass with it’s darkness inducing and thus contrasting tan,sudsy head. Smells fairly sweet and bourbony with cookie-like spices intertwined throughout. It seems to smell a lot thicker than something of 7.2% abv. Flavors are balanced with nutty notes, lots of caramel, and other malty characteristics, some vanilla maybe and some cookie spices. It is medium to full bodied but seemingly thicker when you think about the alcohol level and it still remains pretty luscious considering that and I actually think the combination of spices here, whatever they may be, is done quite well and surprisingly harmonious. Not too shabby. I could do with more prickly and pronounced carbonation though as the rather unlively mouth makes it taste a bit flabby and muddled after a while...but still not too shabby.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2011
bouteille 33cl Couleur brune, col épais ocre. Arôme, malt, froment, nez fruité avec comme indiqué de l’orange amer avec une touche d’épice. Je note aussi un mixe entre la réglisse et caramel le tout couvrant une amertume fruitée. En bouche, une bière intéressante qui marrie le malt caramel allant sur une note sucrée avec l’amertume orangée. Tout comme l’arôme une touche de réglisse se démarque et est complémentée par un fini fruité. Encore une bonne surprise venant de br. Trois Dames.
