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%.

Bottle from Bar Hop. Black with a thin brown head. Aroma of coffee, cinnamon, and dark fruits. Taste is extremely dry roasty with cinnamon, and a little vanilla/bourbon. Body feels thin. Pretty nice, but not super great by Imperial Stout standards.

jksipa (885) - 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.
