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%.

Bire noire de 9 % dalcool. Elle ne possde aucun col au versement. Trs paisse. Elle possde un odorat de chocolat noir et de caf. Elle possde un got de caf noir, style expresso, de mme que lamertume du chocolat noir. Il y a mme comme un petit got de lactose. Honntement, outre lamertume en finale, le got du grain de caf restant en bouche me plait beaucoup. Excellente !

Bouteille de 341ml au March des Brasseurs. Liquide noir surmont dune mince et ephmre mousse brune. Arme de sucre, caf noir et chocolat. Crmeuse de corps, elle attaque les joues et de dessous de la langue ds lentre en bouche avec une plaisante amertume et un got de malt torrfi, suivi de notes de chocolat noir et caf. On ne ressent aucunement lalcool contenu dans cette puissante potion. Une excellente bire de dessert pour accompagner vos petit dlices sucrs.

Bottle at Black Sunday thanks to Paul. Pours black with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is roast, wood, dark fruit, caramel. Chunky mouthfeel with nice bitterness, with chocolate and caramel malt, nice light boze with roast getting more intese and lingering as the beer warms. The coffee gives it a nice balance throughout, very nice.

Franckg (1441) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2015
Robe dun noir bien opaque, sans mousse qui suggre un liquide bien crmeux et rond. Armes sucrs rappellant le chocolat au lait, la guimauve, sucre liquide et grain de caf noir. En bouche, lattaque du sucre est dominante. Trs orient vers le chocolat, lanis et les baies confites. La finale offre des saveurs plus amres de houblons et de caf torrfi. Le corps est rond avec une faible effervescence. Cest ce quon pourrait appeller une bire de dessert. Saveurs bien quilibres qui ne tombent pas dans lexcs. Saccompagnerait trs bien avec un gteau aux fruits ou blanc ou comme digestif.

From bottle. This pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little chocolate and coffee. Taste is first smoke from the roasting, then a slight sweetness rounds the flavor of the malts and chocolate. Medium full mouthfeel. A delicious and wonderful imperial stout.

On tap at the Party Source in Cincy/Kentucky. Black pour with a brown head. Big roasty, coffee, boozy aroma. Tastes of coffee, bakers chocolate, licorice, sweet malt, burnt ashy. Thin palate. Lots going on, but cant say its to my tastes or would need to seek it out again. - 7.2
