4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
My favorite beer in the whole world so far. I first tried this in Bellingham, WA in a sampler with the red, white, and blue. I saved the blue for last and it was definately the premium. Must have a trappist glass so the head doesn’t overwhelm you.

750ml bottle: pours brown with a small beige head that quickly diminishes. The nose is full of carmel and spice. The flavor was good. very malty, with great spice from the yeast. The palate was exquisite. small bubbles coat the mouth. A very good beer.

Bottle. Pours brownish with a lit of fizz and a lot of head. Sweet fruitiness all over. Sweet fruits, honey, herbs, etc in the flavor. Didn’t like it as much as I thought I would...

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2008 Bottle, 33 cl. (also tasted from 75 cl and magnumbottle 1,5 l.)
This must be heaven ! Color, aroma, taste, were excellent. An incredible beer I would highly recommend.
But personally i take the Chimay White before the blue.

Good aroma with many complex layers, sweet roasty toffee scents. Dark cola brown with good head. Dissapointed though by the flavor. Strong alcohol taste on the finish lasts. Palate was watery combined with the alcohol for an unpleasant finish. Ok overall but not a great one for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Small Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with an absolutely massive head that fills the glass. Aroma is sweat, fruity, and wheaty with hints of caramel and honey. Flavor is malty sweat with hints of honey, plums, and grapes. This beer has a nice initial bite but little if any bitterness. Finish is smooth with a pleasant alcoholic warmth. Light to medium bodied consistency with a light and bubbly mouth feel. A top notch Belgian Strong.

This is the good stuff, drink it from a glass, even a wine glass if you have to.

Really a terrific beer! very complex flavor with a sweetly high alcohol content that adds a very unique level of complexity.. smooth palate. great aroma. sweet but restrained to perfection. definitely recomended

Huge rocky off-white head. Nice caramel color more golden at the base of the glass. Medium size particles. Sweet fruity aroma of roasted grains and berries. Light to medium body. Sweet taste of honey with hints of cinnamon, cammomille, pineaple and spices. Liquory texture.I had high expectations on this one and I don’t feel quite satisfied :(.
