Brie Noir is a dark, aged version of Brie.
It has a dark brown crust. Inside, its colour is caramel to very dark brown.
The texture is crumbly.
It is aged 8 to 10 months in a cave in the Seine et Mare region of France.
Brie Noir has a bitter, acidic taste. Locals sometimes dip it in their café au lait at breakfast.
Sometimes the cheese is aged only 4 months, giving it a milder taste that might be more appealing to first timers.
