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.

Poured from a bottle. Dark walnut, a little redish orange. Starts with a small tan head that completely disappears; no lacing whatsoever. Aroma is musty toasted malt and molasses, maybe a hint of banana as well. Taste is similar, with some dark fruit notes as well. I thought the beer lacked complexity, I was really streching to find to find some different flavors here - the sweet maltiness prevails. Hard to pick up any Belgian yeast flavor either. I thought the palate/body were excellent though - nice carbonation level and mouthfeel led to fairly easy drinking. Overall, a decent beer - not one I’d seek out, but would try it again.

Brune aux reflets rougeâtres, une forte effervescence soutient une tête mousseuse persistante. Le nez est sollicité par des arômes de levain et quelque chose qui semble acidulé, du moins, c’est ce que je ressent sur le bout de la langue. Un fumet de grain grillé est présent, autant au nez qu’en bouche. Ce n’est pas un grand produit d’Unibroue (529-090213)

À 6.2 % d’alcool, cette noire belge n’aura sans doute rien d’une stout. La couleur est brun foncé avec des reflets roux au soleil. La mousse est beige et se dissipe rapidement. Nez de levure. Soupçons d’anis et de cassonade. Petits fruits également, mais c’est subtil. En bouche, ce n’est pas très amer, ni très sucré. C’est effervescent, et des notes de malt grillé sont présentes. Réminiscence des saveurs de la Trois-Pistoles (est-ce psychologique en raison de la couleur qui lui ressemble). Le goût est passablement léger. on aurait dit une blonde déguisée en noire. Les amateurs de noires seront sans doute pantois : ce produit obscur n’offre rien de très noir. Les notes sont subtiles, bonnes oui. Un produit Unibroue peut-il vraiment être mauvais? Or, cette bière manque de personnalité et honnêtement, si je compare avec les autres produits de cette brasserie, la Noire de Chambly ne m’accroche vraiment pas. À vus de voir, mais pour ma part, je rachèterais du Unibroue n’importe quand, mais je ne rachèterai pas cette bière. Cheers!

A: Pours a sort of muddy poop brown. Looks thin... Much better in the glass where it has a subtle red hue but still remains a little dull. S: Smell is big on this one and I could get a good wiff before I even put my nose to the glass. Fruity, musty. More citrus here than in other belgian styles. T: Huge grape note. A little estry earthy twang. Finish is pretty smooth. Some lingering must but hits pretty well. P: Carbonation is very playful with no aggression at all. Light-medium body. Overall this beer is one of the best not-going-for-anything-spectacular belgians I’ve had. Very nice flavors but none are that big. It has all the characteristics of a belgian only it remains very easy to drink due to a certain lightness... Nothing I would rush out to buy but if you’re looking to step into belgians this would be a good one. Also Unibroue really doesn’t ever disappoint.

750ml bottle. An opaque brown-copper body, big fluffy mocha head with good retention. Aroma of fresh unibroue yeast, herbal hops, lime, spices (mostly peppercorn), dark berries. Taste of yeast, grains, spices, herbs, lime. Light body, noticeable sedimentation.

A dark ale with a frothy abundant head although that was ephemeral. Some malty caramel aroma. Taste was a mild malty bitterness, fine tho’ some might look for more presence.

Mousse à grosses bulles, couleur café; noire comme l’ébel. Reflets Pepsi (!) Nez de cassonade et de caramel à faible dose. Léger pétillement en bouche avec une douce amertume de grains rotis. L’alcool prend sa place un peu plus tard en arrière-goût. C’est l’un des rares produits d’Unibroue – parmi ce qu’ils font en 750 ml – qui ne m’a jamais accroché.

Tap pours red black with dense foamy head. Simple grainy aroma slightly sweet with a little Belgian flair. The flavor starts ok with some nice dried darker fruits of apples grapes raisins and a smooth barely sweet grain. It never evolves into much but stays a seemingly simple smooth Belgian brew. Not much roasted flavor for being very dark. Very smooth tho, not much wrong with this new just not much jumping out boldly, impressive in it’s moderateness. Lightly tingly tart on the backend but hardly there, mostly smooth grains with a touch of Belgian fruits and a dash of drying bitterness.
