Distinctive smell of Unibroue's yeast. Red berries, spices, lemon and roasted malts.
Taste is light, mineral. Very fruity (blackberry and rasberry), torrefaction, dates.
Don't expect a smooth and round stout because of the "noire". That's a nice strong dark ale, very drinkable and accessible. It looks like a light version of the Trois Pistoles

Black of chambly or ( noire de Chambly ) so what do I think about it lets its
So with the smellof it well, very light. Light coffee taste qith that chocolate on the after taste. The smell is not like the LEFFE Brown because it is more reserve.
The look of. Dark but when you put it on the light it is more like a brown color.
Now the taste of it: Well more on the watery. I think it is 6,2% ABV but doesn t fell like. It feels more like a 4 % ABV. You really have to search for taste, because it is so light that on the after taste you have to use your tongue really hard to catch the taste. And when you catch it you have that coffee chocolate taste like the Leffe Brune but really on the after taste, not when u still drinking it. I did enjoy it. Lots of carbonation once again but it is between a Blanche de Chambly and the Blonde of the Chambly.
So overall would I recommend it ? Yes definitely ! It is a nice easy drinking beer and you wanna drink a Unibroue Beer go for it but for myself I prefer the Leffe Brune or even the St-Ambroise Oatmeal scoot is muche better than this beer. But the Noire the Chambly is much better than those Rickard's Dark ... etc...,
