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%.

ansalon (3171) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2016
Pours matte black with a moderately sized tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, muscovado sugar, dark fruit bread, fudge, roasted nuts. Taste is enormously well balanced with roasted chocolate and dark malts along with slightly smoked leathery tones. Mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and rich with moderate carbonation. Great stuff!

Seffle (455) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle from SB 160327. Batch 20150928. Pours a tar black with espressolike head. Heavy roasted nose with coffee, dark chocolate, soy sause. Heavy palate with espresso and chocolate but with a too distinct bitterness that makes it unbalanced and not to my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laakus (118) - Nossebro, - MAR 26, 2016
Black with a nice brown foam. Roasty aroma mainly. Splendid creamy mouthfeel, taste of coffee, liquorice those especially dominating in the finish, slight tones of sweet dark fruit like plum/raisin but it is the heavier roasty tones that dominates. Alcohol very well hidden. An excellent top motch imperial stout!

Nstan svart med ett ttt, mellanbrunt skum. Doft av kaffe, mrk choklad, ngon mrk frukt och aningen rk. Fyllig rund smak med rejlt med kaffe, men ven riktigt mrk choklad, aningen lakrits, en liten dov mrk fruktighet, avslutningen r rejlt torr med kaffebeska. En fin imperial stout med bra balans mellan stma och beska.

Enteogenisk (162) - Blsta, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2016
(33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours black and peacefully leaving a halfish to a full finger light brown/beige frothy head. Sharp aroma with sweet malty coffee. Alcohol piercing a a bit, not sure it is temperate enough. Palate is full like a creamy espresso with a quite high but thin bitterness. It is like coffee.. Great!

libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Pours black with a foamy brown head. Aroma of cocoa, anise, smoke, caramel, dark roasted malt and dried dark fruits. Flavor is moderately sweet with notes of smoke, molasses, anise, fig and caramel. Full bodied. Slick/creamy mouthfeel. Lasting roasty bitterness in the finish. What else would you expect from Dieu de Ciel. Solid
