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%.

shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle. Wood, dark chocolate, raisin, toasted barley malt, and ash aroma. Opaque black with small head. Sweet earthy/smoky wood, prune, chocolate malt, and moderately bitter herbal/ashy flavor. Nice body. Great flavor.

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Super noir avec une moyenne robe marron opaque. L’arôme est bordée du malt torréfié. Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’autre arômes par comparaison mais c’est correct par ce que c’est deja très riche et bonne. En bouche c’est encore du malt torréfié, équilibré par une bonne amertume. Très intense, riche, et épais. Une bière malté au maximum! Très bien.

Dark black, no head. Tasted after Peche Mortel and Peche Mortel Bourbon BA. This is way different. Not as thick. Considerably way more smokey. Hoppy bitterness.

Idiosynkrasie (7421) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2016
341ml bottle. Jet black colour with late awakening, small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, tan head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma, notes of dark and milk chocolate, vanilla, a touch of rum and treacle, minimally ashy and smoky, roasty overtones gain upper hand while the beer’s warming up, some liquorice comes in. Taste is roasty and chocolately dark malty, caramel notes, hints of Chinese fortune cookie, treacle, vanilla, the roast comes along in slightly ashy, smoky and even tart-ish fashion, additional notes of liquorice; oily texture, soft and minimally sticky palate. Quite strong and forceful but not really heavy, superb balance of caramel and chocolate gravity and ashy, roasty repulsion. In my personal order of succession their ’Péché Mortel’ ranks behind.

Fashawn (597) - ITALY - JAN 18, 2016
Aroma di liquirizia, orzo, leggero caffè e caramello, liquirizia, orzo. Tostatura al comando, per una birra nero intensissimo, impenetrabile, con una bella schiuma marrone. Sapore di caramello leggermente dolce, con una leggera dolcezza come intermezzo, prima dell’amertume da liquirizia, orzo. Caffè amaro, cacao nero, birra molto amara ma comunque mai invadente, sempre presente, bella nota. Densa, perfetto la sensazione al palato. Accarezza sempre, senza mai perdere di intensità. Calore alla fine, buona birra davvero.

BobyFischer (311) - FRANCE - JAN 16, 2016
Robe noire d’encre, fin col de mousse se dissipant rapidement. Nez : chocolat noir, torréfaction, alcool, fruits macérés. Bouche : corps dense, huileux, doux, subtile amertume de chocolat, noir, fruits macérés : cerises, raisin, agrumes "vin chaud". Finale entre amertume, rondeur et douceur.Subtil équilibre. Excellent.

simardsam (261) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
Noire, presque comme la nuit, avec un mince col de mousse brun pâle. Nez de torréfaction, de café, terreux et de cacao. Goût de chocolat noir, de torréfaction, légèrement vanillé, d’anis et de petits fruits foncés. En bouche, c’est épais, liquoreux et la finale est l’amertume du chocolat noir.

Gerbeer (3683) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
341 ml bottle. Pours black with moderate tan head. Aromas of oily black coffee, licorice, dry dark chocolate, and heavily roasted malts. Flavors of creamy black coffee, very dark dry chocolate, light vanilla, light chicory, and more roasted malts. Very nice balance; a little dry but also a little sweet.

4.2
Patrickctenchi (6550) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle: Pours black with a light brown head. Smoky, dark chocolate/fudge, vanilla cream aroma. Dark chocolate, cocoa, molasses, coffee roast, vanilla flavor. Chewy, creamy....with a big, ashy-bitter finish. Really smoothly done. I could enjoy one of these almost everyday....Excellent.
