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.

Dit is echt een bier waar je heel blij van wordt. Mooie donker/rode kleur in het glas. Kleine schuimkraag heeft het bier. De smaak is vol fruitig met een hint van karamel. Afdronk is wat bitter maar toch ook zoet op de achterkant van de tong.
