COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Bise Noire est de retour, à ceci près que la bête a été adaptée pour mieux s’insèrer dans la gamme de la brasserie. Fermentation haute de couleur noire, avec un mélange de malts spéciaux calibré pour lui donner le corps, la rondeur et la présence indispensables à une bière d’hiver, sans pour autant sombrer dans le doucereux. Elle titre 7,2%, donc prudence. Cette bière est brassée de septembre à mars.

High fermentation black, with a mixture of special malts calibrated to give it body, roundness and needed a winter beer presence, without falling into the bland. It as 7.2%, so caution. This beer is brewed from September to March.

Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium-brown with a short-lived, yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted chocolate and black malts with plenty of cardamom, vanilla, and some herbs around.. fresh, greener hoppy accents.. welcoming. The flavor found well-toasted chocolate, vanilla, and molasses notes at the core.. cardamom, cinnamon, and lightly sour malty notes around.. finished with warm spices over molasses and a touch of maple. Medium-bodied with a spotty flow through the palate.. more tart/sour toward the back-end.. OK feel and flow.. decent beer.

Aroma is malts/cocoa and spices/vegetables. The flavor is malty, a mix of chocolate and caramel as well as having a slightly spicy flavor with thankfully no vegetables in flavor. Not as strong in body or flavor as normally expecting with an imperial stout, could be due to the spices, otherwise this was pretty good, but not exceptional.

kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that left a bit of lacing. The nose is really quite interesting. Not sure if I like it or not. It smells a bit more like grape jelly than beer. Not sure what kind of spices are used here, but they are certainly overpowering the malt in the aroma. The harder I try, the more I get a little roast and chocolate, but it’s in the background. The flavor is a little sweet and spicy with some dark roast malt. Lighter bodied for an Imperial Stout, a touch clingy on the finish, with soft minimal carbonation. Not really my kind of Imperial Stout, much like the coffee one that I had from them. Makes me want an Expedition Stout.

vyvvy (6731) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and a tan head that looks like it has craters all over it. The aroma has cream, dark fruit, berries, roasted malt, green apples and spices. Medium body that’s quite light for an impy stout and it has mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with star anise, roasty malt, cinnamon, berries and mild alcohol. The finish adds some powdery spices and chalk. Nice beer that is somewhere between a regular stout and imperial stout with spices added. This seemed to have a bit of age on it, but aging gracefully.

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle and served in my Expedition snifter: Pours a deep russet brown with minimal head nor lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, roast, walnut, plum, anise, light smoke and oak, herbal and grassy hops, with a quick dash of mineral oil. The taste is rather mundane with slick sweet malts, touch of coffee and chocolate, char, and dark fruits before a light handed hop bitterness comes about during the finish. The mouth feel is also very underwhelming, thin and sort of flat. The only Black Wind I get from this is a gust of wasted money flowing out of my pockets. Oh, exactly why is the not listed as a Stout? If there are indeed any spice it would be Star Anise and even then not enough to list this brew as a spice brew, not even close.

MrTipple (6446) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Sweet, dark toasted malts, molasses, slightly burnt sugar, prunes, plums, other dark fruits. Very dark brown, massive, frothy, beige head. Light sweet. More sweet, dark malts, fruit, chocolate, light cacao, soft carbonation, medium to full bodied, more dark fruits in the finish. Really liking this Stout, great dark fruits in aroma and palate. Bottle from Drinks of the World, Bern.

reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
330ml bottle pours a dark brown color with some red highlights and a thick light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with some fruit. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with some fruit and roasted malt bitterness and very little hop presence. An interesting imperial stout with the presence of the fruits, but still quite delicious.

sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with average, frothy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, alcohol, vanilla, cookie malt, and light floral hops. Flavor is mostly spice and vegetable, average malt, and not much else; semi-sweet finish. Light/medium body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of frothy tan colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind an opaque brown colored body and no lacing. The odd aroma was mild spice and dark malt. The vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The thin flavor contained notes of mild spice dark malt and breads. An OK brew just nothing special.
