Chambly Noire (750ml Bottle)
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.
Pours a nice dark brown with a huge, fluffy light brown head. Nose shows a light touch of yeast with sweet caramel and coffee. Flavor is light with slight coffee notes and a nice yeasty, doughy quality. Finishes fairly clean with a slight aftertaste.
Belgian-style ales seldom fit neatly into classic beer styles, but this category represents those "session" ales (in Belgium this means under 7% abv!) that do not fit other categories. Colour ranges from golden to deep amber, with the occasional example coming in darker. Body tends to be light to medium, with a wide range of hop and malt levels. Yeastiness and acidity may also be present.
