4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I just had this beer and i have to accept it’s absolutely one of the best beers I ever tasted. Only the Sint Bernardus 12 seems to be close. The taste is very full and has a kind of wooden taste. The Westvleteren 8 is absolutely more fruity, but less exceptionnal.
I absolutely recommend the beer and the website that helped me to get the beer for a good price (even if i don’t know if this is allowed in my review: http://westvleteren12.webs.com/ )

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A thoroughly luxurious Belgian abbey ale, Chimay Blue pours a flawless ruby-brown color with a small but steady white head. Aroma of rich slightly roasty brown sugar- caramel maltiness, along with yeasty candy apple notes. Some cocoa-coffee notes also, this is the first abbey ale I've sampled with a coffee malt accent to it. Taste is caramel malt, candy yeast, some dark chocolate, vanilla, and red fruit. Slight boozy tinge but minor. Mouthfeel however strikes me as an unusually thin and weaker texture, the low point for this brew in my opinion. Overall still a rich and flavorful rendition of the style, less delicate in its flavor profile than others. Not my personal favorite but well done.
