4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Now I have to say right up front that I am extemely biased when I say that thi sis my favorite beer ever ( so far). My 10th Class Reunin was this past wekend and after a long evening of dancing and drinking we ended up at a friends house for, what else, more drinking. Guests were handed bottles of Sam Addams and Pete's somethin'-or-other and then this wonderful man who I hadn't sen in 7 years brings out a bottle of Chimay!!!!!!
Glorio day! Of course noone else in the place could appreciate the earthy and subtle complexities of JUST the aroma of this beer. "Hey, man. That's Skunked!" Fools. DE-licious. Dark and sweet, earthy and fruity. A fine balance between the hops and malt. Truly a fine end to a wonderful night. I would reccomend this over champagne at almost any occasion, if you have the kind of friends that will appreciate it.

20 years after the first try, this is still something that I enjoy often. A fantastic beer with an even more fantastic history.

9%ABV. Belgian Ale.
Poured out a dark brown. 35ºSRM
Nose has some faintly funky acetic aromas with wet yeast.
Mouthfeel is carbonated with an alcoholic palate. The palate has some honeyed dates and stone fruit. Quite pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear dark brown body with foamy beige head. Slightly sweet, malty aroma with notes of spices, alcohol and yeast. Rich malty taste with medium caramel sweetness and light bitterness. There are spicy and yeasty flavours. Medium body with foamy and prickly carbonation. Some alcohol. Dry and spicy finish. A great example of a dark belgian ale. I do not appreciate this type of carbonation, but aside from that it is very tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
De color marrón granate, con un capa de espuma color hueso, esponjosa y no muy persistente.
En nariz fruta madura dulce tipo ciruelas, algo de maltas tostadas, caramelo y especias.
Bastante ligera de cuerpo.
En boca alcohólica y compleja, con los mismos sabores que aromas.
Final dulce y seco. Clásica!
