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.

Biere noire douce au reflets brun-roux. Gout phenolique de la levure Unibroue... Sweet dark ale... with brownish-red highlights. Unibroue s phenolic yeast taste.

Aroma is dark fruits, rich malts and slight earthy notes. Taste is sweet roasty malts and plum plus apple notes. Finishes pretty shallow and watered down sadly. Light bitterness that finishes fairly smoothly. Appearance is a black body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Dark brown and almost clear. Has an off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma, some caramel notes too. Flavor starts sweet, faint yeasty notes too, faint soy.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 341ml Bottle.. It’s been ages since I had that one. Very dark brown color nice head but goes quickly( trappist glass) smells really belgian. Typical Unibroue yeast that I’m not so sure about in this one. Taste is a bit fruity, dark roasted malts but not much... to tell you the truth there is not much going in the taste of that beer kinda shy and watered for a 6.2% ABV. this isn’t bad but not great it could be fixed very easily, hop it up and use a different kind of yeast... average UPDATE: drank a 3 years old bottle and the taste is pretty much the same ... this beer does not age very well. in fact it doesn’t age at all

"fruit and spice in a belgian beer. not unique in that, or in it’s similarity to several other Unibroue beers, but not bad. May try it again during the summer."

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roast, caramel, dark fruit, figs, the typical Unibroue yeast, somewhat dry. Not my favorite from them, but not bad either.

Quebecois-style root beer I reckon, not too shabby at all. Dark brown with plum hue and a really quickly disappearing ivory head. Sexy basement-covered-in-licorice-bubblegum aromas. Taste has some leather, burnt toffee, dark roasty malts, raisins and prunes. Some winey booziness that is not unsettling. Mid carbonation keeps this dusky drink zazzy. A pretty fun trip to Unibroueland French Beer Amusement Park. Eat some strong aged cheddar and call it a night.

Bottle. Dark pour with little head. Smells of raisin and banana. Taste similar with fruits and nuts as well, a little boozy too. The colour fools you, as the body isnt that heavy along with mouth feel. It is somewhat sweet and oily texture. Not my favourite from Unibroue, but then again not my favourite type of beer either.

12oz bottle, from Party Town. Best before 02-21-08. Wait, 2008??? Holy crap, I have never seen a unibroue bottle this old. Almost pitch black color. Thin khaki head. Loose bits of lace. Unfortunately very little flavor to this, and some noticeable oxidization. Dark fruit, light spice, some raisin. Very dry finish, papery, musty. Medium to bigger body. Kind of soft, lighter, very dry carbonation. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light sweet in that super dry finish, maybe. Kind of a spicy bite in the finish. Much harder to drink than I was hoping for when I grabbed this from my fridge. Pretty shit, way too damn old. Waste of $2.75. I forced it down over the course of an hour, though, so that I’d never again be tempted to by a 7 year old bottle of unibroue.

Unibroue Chambly Noire I had no clue there was a Chambly Noire. Im a big fan of the Blanche. Versus dark black pour as expexted. Pretty much no head. Distinct smell I cannot place. Thick low carbonation. Very thick. Stout like. Nutty and fruity. Raisins and plumb and more. Its okay. Not great, butnin no way bad.

Olfactif: Les arômes ne sortent presque pas. Je perçoit de petites notes désagréables de détergent au dessus de toutes petites notes de sucre d’orge. Arômes décevants. Visuel: Noire aux reflets marrons. Texture boueuse. Bonne épaisseur de mousse, de couleur beige, de densité moyenne et à longue durée. La mousse ne colle que légèrement et ne forme aucune dentelle. Gustatif: L’attaque développe de légères notes de fumée avec de petits sucres en soutient. Les notes gustatives sont de chocolat au lait, de bois, de feuilles mortes, et sont accompagnées d’une légère acidité dérangeante. Les sucres sont présents sous forme de cola, de friandise. La texture est moyenne avec une bonne effervescence. Le houblon n’est que peu présent et les saveurs sont de malt et de levure. Je demeure assez déçu de cette bière que j’avais trouvé peu savoureuse et sans complexité en 2011. Le tout est maintenu.
