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%.

SaintMatty (7207) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2016
341ml Bottle - Black with a tan head. Liquorice, plain chocolate, roasted coffee and some smoky hints in the aroma. Smooth, luxurious and roasted taste with coffee, liquorice, plain chocolate and roasted malt detected. Some smoky notes are also in the taste but not as noticeable as the smoky notes in the aroma. Very easy to drink for a beer of this strength.
