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.

Un ou deux verres sur place au cours des dernires annes. Cette fois-ci, quelques bouteilles dans le confort de ma maison qui me permettent dcrire cette valuation qui nest surtout pas professorale: Une robe presque noire et sa tte brune fonce qui rsiste tout. Un nez de malts rtis, de torrfaction et de caramel avec des effluves de vanille et de chocolat. Des saveurs possdes par des notes rties avec du caf et des houblons amers dans lesquelles viennent se fondre des morceaux de caramel et du chocolat vanill. Un corps accessible, de moyenne densit avec des bulles qui se comportent avec modration et une texture crmeuse souhait. Une finale amre de grains rtis et de houblons sur un murmure cendr.

jksipa (862) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Inky black with a small dark mahogany head that fades quickly to a sheet. Nose is lots of roast, molasses, coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, with notes of licorice, vanilla and minerals. Taste is light sweet molasses with a much more pronounced coffee and chocolate bitterness and a touch of plum tartness. Mouth is medium+ and chewy with soft carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. 8+/4/9/4/17

Colore nero, schiuma nocciola poco persistente, aromi di caff e malto tostato. Sapori caff, vaniglia e cioccolato, finale leggermente amaro e affumicato. Una scout importante.

Draught. Inky black with small creamy reddish-tan head, mocha aroma, medium carbonation, bitter mocha taste with alcohol overtones, thick body, long bitter finish. The alcohol bite is a bit too obvious.

EerieDrinks (132) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2017
4 finger light tan head. Pitch black beer. Aroma is freshly ground, roasted coffee, soy and dark chocolate with a slightly sour, dark fruity tone. Hint of liquorice. Taste follows the path of the aroma, mostly with the awesome coffee in mind, and with everything else only being hinted at. Pretty short aftertaste. Pretty thin and slightly watery I must say but its got a big mouthfeel. Quite sharp on the tongue as it rises up to the palate, atleast on the first sip. Overall, I cant rate this very high as a Imp. Stout but as a single coffee stout or even an Imperial Porter this is great.

@Stordirren 17-3-13: Tydlig doft av aska, kaffe och rk. Fin fyllig smak med balanserad bitterhet. Lng fin eftersmak. Ganska gott.
