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%.

Ungstrup (38585) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2005
A pitch black beer wtih a lasting brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with light notes of coffee - and in general the aroma is a bit light, but that was just coming off Peche Mortel. The flavor is sweet with coffee dominating, but also with lots of roasted malt. Another nice brew from Dieu du Ciel.
