I can’t believe I haven’t rated this one yet. Poured a medium to darker brown color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of plums and other dark fruits. Lightly spicy with light yeast in the tastes as well. Medium sweet.

This is really a great beer. The taste is so smooth, and with a right meal it can be out of this world.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 I must have had a bad bottle the first time i sampled this brew.
Bottle resampled a the Belgian beer tasting at State Line. Pours dark with a large beige head. Aroma of yeast and alcohol (just ok). Flavor is smooth, sweet, citrus, fruit, and chocolate. Good body, good brew.

Bam, Monks rule! Out of the smaller 11.2oz bottle, the delicate aire of plums light yeast and raisin eminates. A hazy prunish color to with a lively foamy dirty white head. One sip begged for more, lively, light roast tones of raisin and plum.Palate just said to have some more. Thank the lord this one’s easy to get.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 While I still enjoy this, I used to like it more. Brownish body with a moderate head. Aroma is yeasty with bananas, other various fruits, and some sugar. Still a great beer.

Nice brown color, the best Chimay i have tasted. Smooth, but a nice amount of strength. Ends with a warmth fit for a solid winter brew. Love it!

It poured out brown and had wonderful fruit tones, a high level of carbonation and a great balance between malts and hops. I didn’t really notice the alcohol in the flavor. Its there alright!

Absolute the best of Chimay, a dark brown colour, with a good foam. Big aroma of dried fruit and hints of tobacco. Taste wonderfull, and have a good balance with malt and bitterness, and the alcohol are good hidden. Also try to store some bottle for 5 years, then this beer taste amazing......

04 Bottle. Pours brownish with red hints, and a solid head. Strong Belgian yeast aroma, and some darker fruits like plums. Nice full-flavored, but a bit thin when compared to quads. Alcohol is fairly well hidden for 9%. Nice enough ’trappist swill’ heh.
