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%.

Black, not totally opaque with a cm perfectly laced and sticking to the glass coffee coloured head (nitrogen). A rather subtle nose for an imperial stout, chocolatey and cofeeish. Milky palate with a strong coffee aftertaste (cappucino, espresso, they're all there). Not as sweet as the nose lent me to believe, more coffeeish and and reminiscent of a coffee crisp. 8.5%, where? Hops presence appear restrained, but bitterness coats the tongue sides after a few sips. What I prefer about it has got the be the mouthfeel, very comfortable and pleasant medium-full with just the right carbonation. A big glass of flavourful cream with vanilla notes, velvety if not too complex. The comparison to Bièropholie's imperial stout is mandatory..

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2017 Scrumptious mouthfeel transporting sweet chocolate, heavily roasted malts and citrusy hops to the nostrils... Once imbibed, an ample milky crème brûlée is obviously reminiscent of a Péché Mortel without coffee... Roastiness persists, as grassy hop bitterness struggles to get through the huge body... Alcohol is expertly hidden and this can become a severely dangerous Imperial Stout... To the glory of malt!
