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 (341 ml). The bottling date is almost erased, but I think it’s a 2011 bottle. Dark brown with a medium diminishing, but easy to revive beige head and some lacing. Aroma is light with roasted malt, spices and bread notes. Taste is about the same. Light body. Low to moderate carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Subpar Belgian Ale, maybe in part because of the age, but the characteristics of the beers aren’t so amazing.

northropfrye (2778) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle at St. Alexandre, Quebec City. One of my favourite beers tried during my Quebec trip. Dark maroon body. Lovely sweet candi dark fruit aroma. Loads of sweet belgiany taste. Fabulous beer.

Un peu aqueuse comme noire mais elle passe bien. Peut-être un peu trop effervescente mais quand même bien. J’ai bu des rousses avec plus de corps...

sudomorph (911) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Overflowing carbonation before the pour. Pours a very dark brown with a tan, two finger head that thins to half a finger. Aroma is yeast, a hint of apple, spice, and caramel. Taste a touch sweet and bitter with a hint of yeast and spice on the finish. Medium body and carbonation with slight watery texture. Very similar to other Unibroue offerings but that isn’t a bad thing.

Bottle. Dark brown with small pale brown head. Aroma sweet roasted malts, rye bread. Taste quite sweeet, roasted malts, rye bread. maybe a little too lively carbonation.

One of my favorite dark ales and the second best Unibroue. Tasty and the fairly high carbonation makes it a quite refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This is a great dark belgian at a excellent price point. Well worth tucking into.

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.

August 2010. Bottle. Dark fruit and earthy aromas. Muddy brown color with a tan head. Dark berry flavors with malt and yeast notes. Slightly bitter finish.

AlainG (1516) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
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)
