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.

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 (9033) - 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.

vyvvy (5531) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and a tan head that looks like it has craters all over it. The aroma has cream, dark fruit, berries, roasted malt, green apples and spices. Medium body that’s quite light for an impy stout and it has mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with star anise, roasty malt, cinnamon, berries and mild alcohol. The finish adds some powdery spices and chalk. Nice beer that is somewhere between a regular stout and imperial stout with spices added. This seemed to have a bit of age on it, but aging gracefully.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Le Tonneau Verre, Yverdon
Very dark color, almost black; nice creamy head. The aroma has dusty bread, roasted malt, roasted nuts. Not heavy, but the body is well structured; balanced mix of roasted malt and chocolate; it gets more bitter and dry at the end, where maybe it’s possible to feel some of the bitter oranges used; for my liking, the malt is just a bit too burnt in the end. Well brewed.
