UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 It pours slightly hazy with a mostly lasting light brown creamy head. Aroma is moderatly malty like toasted bread, slightly hoppy and lightly doughy. Flavor is a almost perfect balance of sweet and bitter with a short finish. Medium bodied creamy, livley with a slightly chalky finish.

First Belgian Strong I ever tried. God bless the Flying Saucer in Ft. Worth for opening my eyes to Chimay. I like comparing Chimay to champagne because of the crispness of a freshly poured glass.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 Bottle. This is probably the highest rating I’ve given for a beer, and it was the first Trappist beer I had some four years ago. It’s a total standby. Over the years I’ve had other examples of quadrupels but I seem to always fall back on this one. Pours a really nice ruby and mahogany with a large, sticky and solid head. Lots of carbonation to it. Scents and flavors of baker’s chocolate, raisins, currants, some candied orange peel, and of course a high amount of alcohol. This beer is a sipper and is meant to be drunk slowly. An excellent introduction to Trappist or quadrupel beers.

Out of the Blue, Red, and White, this one is least impressive. Even though, it still features complex and smooth palate. Amber unfiltered color with mild fruity aroma succumbs to well disguised alcohol bliss. Well Played!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2010 Re-rating 27.08.10, as my old rating was far from the RB Average, (3.0) but apparently I just don’t like this beer as much as you other do, since it ended on low 2.9 points this time
It is an opaque red-brown beer with a dense head. The aroma is wood, alcohol, sourish hops and anonymous hops. Flavor is wood, menthol, much alcohol and a medium bitter finish. A bit thin palate, especially for the ABV. Medium carbonation.

Malty, slight alcohol nose. Dark copper body with big off white head that dissapears fast and slightly cloudy. Malty almost whiskey taste. Strong alcohol taste that finishes sweet. Rather balanced flavors

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...

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.
