Chambly Noire is a smooth and creamy dark beer with a beige and persistent head. Its torrefaction aromas and slight bitterness enable it to perfectly accompany various fish dishes, strong cheeses and chocolate desserts.

Bottle, best by 10/30/2010 (oops). Pours a dark brown with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, raisin, light fruits, dark malts. Flavor is quite malty with light fruits and some soda. Obviously this beer is not at its prime, so I won’t slam it. I can tell that it’s a pretty decent Belgian ale though. I would not recommend aging it! 6/4/7/3/14 [3.4/5]

Bière noire de 6.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré et un petit col au versement. Elle possède un goût sucré, mais également un goût âcre, comme un goût de liqueur dégazéifiée. Elle possède aussi un goût céréalier (sarrasin) avec un légère amertume en finale, du type torréfaction. Correcte !

750 ml bottle thanks to pushkinwow . Pours a clear ruddy color with a large white head. A big malty, fruity and yeasty nose. The flavor has that dominant Unibroue yeast, big strawberries, caramel, pepper. Very good. Super clean and tasty. Tastes bigger than it is.

Bouteille 341 ml. Servie dans un verre trappiste. Robe noire, léger collet blanc-beige. Un peu de dentelle. Arôme peu enveloppante: levure et malt. Goût malté, avec des notes de fruits noirs et d’alcool. La bière n’est pas mauvaise, mais elle n’a pas grand chose de spécial. On pourrait la décrire comme une version allégée de la Maudite ou de la Fin du monde...

One last lonely bottle bearing the label and old name, discontinued in 2009, caught me off-guard in a local liquor store. As the Unibroue website claims this ages nicely over 2-4 years, I snapped it up! Much to my disappointment, aging didn’t turn it into an uber-beer. It didn’t seem to suffer from too much oxidation, but is was not astounding. Very low carbonation; tiny head which faded almost immediately. Dark brown-black, slightly mohagony in color, with a nose of largely musty malt. Dark fruit or raisin flavors, an more musty, roasty malts upon tasting, not getting much complexity as far as the spectrum of Belgians goes. A little stickiness on the palate, but fairly drinkable. Overall, worth trying, but definitely a beginner/intro to begian dark ales, as the commercial description claims - nothing too out of the ordinary, but therefore a little on the mediocre side.

Surprised I haven’t put a review up for this guy. The pour is dark brown amber in the body with a fluffy beige head and strong carbonation. The nose is fruity, mildly malted with tofee and caramel malts. A bunch of sweetness in the middle with a great caramel and toffee malt and a bit of a mild bitterness. Well balanced and fruity with a bit of bitterness throughout. Overall, fantastic.

Bottle 750ml @ My 30th birthday tasting
Pours clear dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate and dried fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long chocolate and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Very nice, very complex beer. It has everything from plums to tobacco in the aroma. A pleasant, dark appearance and a rich malty finish.

750ml bottle. Pours a dark clear cola color. Aroma of apple, lemon, grass, cinnamon, caramel. Flavor is molasses, spicy, plum, tastes like a german marzen with a belgian yeast.
