COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Grande Noirceur is an intensely black and dense beer with pronounced roasted flavours. The bitterness is very imposing but is balanced by a malty-caramel taste. The alcohol content is quite high, but its presence remains discrete in this beer.

ABV initially 8.5%, changed in late 2012 to 9%.

matthewsween (3) - Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2018 does not count
It poured like black oil, with a tan head-- low key carbonation. Intense ashy roastiness, toastiness, coffee, and chocolate way up front, but followed swiftly by balancing caramel, candy, and dried fruit. The finish was dry, bitter. One of the best imperial stouts I have ever had. Awesome.

Metalchopz (3709) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2018
Almost black colour with dark brown highlights. Mocha-coloured head, good retention and some creamy thick lacing at the base. Roasted malt aromas with a soft mix of well-blended coffee, chocolate and molasses. Hints of nuts. Roasted malt taste with some good bitterness and dryness in the finish. Nicely warming. If you like your stouts without coffee, chocolate added and just tasting the roasted malts, this is for you.

Aromat: zbożowy, ma wiele cech wspólnych z aromatem lagera. Dziwne. dużo słodów palonych i kawy. Zapach średni jeśli chodzi o zarówno wrażenia jak i intensywność. Nutki suszonych i ciemnych owoców po chwili w tyle się pojawiają. Wygląd: czarne, bardzo ładna dosyć wysoka, brunatna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana. Piwo ładnie się prezentuje. Smak: dosyć bogate ale strasznie gorzkie i palone, mało tu słodyczy dla zbalansowania całości. Trochę gorzkiej czekolady, melasy, troszkę ciemnych owoców i owoców suszonych. Cała masa nut palonych, popiołowych i kawy. Do tego nie pasujące tu cierpkie świeże owoce- jabłka głównie, wada? aldehyd, chyba za świeże jeszcze. Odczucie: dosyć gładkie i puszyste, ciała nie za dużo, alkoholu nie czuć, długi, zalegający, gorzki, palony finisz Całość: nie jest to dobre piwo, nieprzyjemna palona gorycz kładzie tu wynik, a niepasujące tu cierpkie jabłka, prawdopodobnie aldehyd nie poprawiają sytuacji. Potencjał mimo wszystko jest. Dziwi mnie trochę wysoka ocena tego piwa, nie jest ono jak dla mnie ani smaczne ani udane. 6/4/5/3/11

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Šta reći za ovakve pive koje ulaze sam vrh. Kratko. Aroma kava, prženi slad. Okus kava, čokolada, ne pregaziran. Odlično!

KansaiBeerLvrs (5568) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 25, 2018
Having one of those days and so needed a beer. I got a 4 pack of these but just brought one to Japan. I think I have some away to family and have the other(s?) waiting at my folks. Dieu du Ciel Grande Noirceur Imperial Stout 9% Great looking inky black with a thick rusty tan head that leaves copious lacing behind. A fruity cacao and licorice aroma with perhaps hints of toasted oats. Full bodied but the carbonation is scratchy rather than smooth. The taste is bitter dark chocolate, toasted marshmallows coated in toasted oats that were then dipped in dark chocolate. My quibble would be to witch for a smoother body so I’m guessing on nitro this would be amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABS (1140) - Stokke, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2018
Bottle from Vinmonopolets BU. Pour close to black. Roasted malt, coffee, caramel, some citrus. Bitter. Full, oily body. Soft to medium carbonation. Very good.

3.7
LouisP (630) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2017
Une bière noire, avec une ligne de carbonatation et un peu d’effervescence. Au nez, chocolat, grain rôti, et impression onctueuse. En bouche, le grain rôti est fort présent, donnant de forte impression de café à ce stout. Rien de spécial, mais pas mauvais.
