2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle of the 2002 version.
Normally Chimay Bleue improves massively with aging, so I was looking forward to this one. It was a major disappointment! It began all right, as the beer poured a nice reddish brown with a good firm and lasting head. But the aroma was very faint, with only a bit of chocolate and some burnt flavours showing through. On the palate this brew appeared lighter than its 9% alcohol. The taste was very one-dimensional and again dominated by a burnt caracter. In short the beer appeared tired and worn out.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle in a huge tulip glass. Pours dark copper with the creamiest head I have ever seen in a Belgian style ale. The creamy head coats the side of the glass like ocean foam on the beach. Very well balanced. Deep, dark chestnut flavor throughout the palate. There’s cooked caramel and spice in there. Overall, a classic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally got around to trying this one. Pours dark brown/copper with a small, quickly vanishing tan head. Smells fruity, carmel, yeasty. Taste follows the nose and finishes off with an ever-so-slight alcohol bite. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is definitely there but not overwhelming. Pretty great beer.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from the LCBO.Pours a bubbly tan head which left no residue after quickly dissipating. Opaque brown/red (copper) body. Aroma predominantly is yeast and alcohol contrasted well with caramel and malty notes. Mouthfeel is heavy due to a lively carbonation and a strong alcohol finish. Wood notes are present, however subtle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s very sweet in the aroma, with a small note of caramel and delicate notes of strong alcohol. It’s dark copper color, almost non-transparent, with small head. It’s highly carbonated. In taste it’s sweet, with small notes of caramel and fruits. But mostly it’s very alcoholic, alcohol is definitely on the foreground, so strong it sear in the mouth.
