Reddish brown. Nice white airy head. Slight fruity aroma. Refreshing. Crisp and clean. Sits on the tongue just right. Bubbly on the tongue

Pours out thick and brown, with a fair amount of head. Really quite amazing to look at. The smell hinted at some fruit, and a nice mellow flavour. The taste followed up, as everyone says, with fruit, berries, etc. Smooth and tasty

Quaint bottle, large frothy head. Stunted aroma unfortunately, but smells exactly like a trappist should: yeast and malt. Surprisingly easy to drink given the robust taste. Initially a very smooth, but strong combination of malt and yeast with some bubblegum, followed by a delectable bitterness fused with hops and alcohol. Quite good.

This beer’s beer became a trigger for me fits in Belgium beer. Honest shock ran when I drank for the first time. Delicious! The words came out with. The fundamentally different from the beer was drinking up to now, and it was found beer tastes as goods that he a thing like this in the complex flavor of the beer body is also very heavy and above all. It would drink to buy just just because good circulation.

Mooi donker bier met ruime schuimkraag. Drinkt fris weg, zonder te bittere nasmaak. Je proeft caramel en suiker. Kan dit bier zeker aanraden.

Bottle from the Jumbo in Gorinchem. The beer is dark brown and has a nice cream colored head which rich carbonation. In the aroma tones of caramel, sugar, prums and a little alcohol is noticable. In the taste tones of dark fruits and a nice bitterness. In the end the warming alcohol is noticable. The finish is warm and intense for a long time.

Bottle 33 cl.
Dark brown, red tinted, with a nice tan head. Aroma with pronounced yeast, earthy basement, and some caramel malts. Medium sweet, and a bit fruity. You sense the alcohol, it’s very warming, without it overwhelming the taste.

Dark brown, caramel colored beer with a creamy off-white head. high carbonation. Aroma and taste of caramel, banana and a slightly roasted malts. with a fine alcohol aftertaste. Very subtle for such a dark beer (they often get to roasted or fruity in my taste). Best of the Chimay range and one of the best drak beers i’ve tasted thus far.

Everybody knows what it looks like. Everybody knows what it tastes like. Good beer. But the alcohol taste can be overpowering depending on what you’ve tasted before. The roast is pleasant though. But, when tasted, the fruity components were not as present as some comments may suggest.
