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%.

Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2005. Hummm! Cacao caramélisé, Café, cognac... Belle robe noire-brune.

bit of sourness Russian style but overwhelmed by chocolate malts and fruity taste. Coffee and vanilla notes, roastiness. Suitable understated carbonation

DYCSoccer17 (3706) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Draft at Mondial 2005. Mildly hoppy bitter aroma with traces of roasty chocolates. Somewhat faint, though. Opaque dark brown with a nice frothy tan chocolate-milk colored head. Very smooth and sweet to start with sweetened chocolate sugar notes. Turns more roasty with some anise to finish. Mild alcohol presence, but still very smooth and drinkable.

Eructoblaster (4330) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2005
Bottle - One year aged. Pours a perfectly opaque black body topped with a thick bubbly brown head. Its malty aroma is nice and well-balanced, but also a bit shy. Notes of roasted coffee, chocolate and dark berries. Its perfectly balanced taste (flavors of malt, hops, roasted coffee and chocolate) hides the alcohol very well. Its long roasty finish leaves a pleasant warming effect. Delightful winter beer.

No commercial description eh. Well I’ll give it one - good stuff. alright that sucked, but I’ll elaborate a little more. Black with tan head. No surprise for an Imperial Stout. Aromas of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. No surprise for an Imperial Stout. Aroma not finished though - is that black currant? Waaah? Now it’s a surprise for an Imperial Stout. Flavours match the aroma nicely with a creamy big mouthfeel and a lingering, mouth-coating, dry, bitter finish. Solid.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
Sampled from bottle aged 6 months at the brewpub. Black in colour with a tan colour head, yeast floaties. Wonderful aroma of bittersweet chocolate, some coffee and vanilla. Flavour of chocolate, coffee, espresso, very creamy, slightly bitter. Huge body, wonderful mouthfeel with no alcohol to be found. Finish is very dry and long. A lighter Péché Mortel? Excellent imperial.

beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
Aged 6 months, bottle. Pitch black color with a frothy light brown head. Roasty, sweet and black chocolate aroma. The flavor is roasty and bitter with black chocolate. Bitter finish. Full body, soft carbonation, powdery mouthfeel.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2004
Strinking black, tan head. Nose is a little weak, coffee and hops. Roasty bitter flavour, not over the top, but the coffee and oaky notes really came through nicely. Creamy body has made me think twice about the potential of nitrogen. Yummy. Draught.

4.1
Lubiere (14131) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
Deep black beer with a deep brown moka head. Chocoalte, vanilla and cold coffee come out in the aroma. Powdered chocolate, like milk chocolate, with initially intense hops at the beginning, and some lactic notes. Creamy body with complexity, and alcool warmth very evident.
