4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
It's hard to review this beer while drinking it, as my eyes sort of roll back in my head in ecstasy. Of the Chimay beers I've tried, this is hands-down my favorite although they are all good. The malt sweetness seems to be better balanced in this one than the others.

Aroma of caramel, dates, and yeast. Opaque burgundy colour. Flavour of honey, figs, nuts, and soy sauce. Medium body with mild carbonation. Quite a tasty beer!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle in branded glass. Brownish red with frothy, soapy head. Aroma of yeast, malt and some mud. Pours perfectly, and looks as a perfect Belgium dubbel should look like. Not transparent, thick and smooth. A taste you can distinguish. This is good, but I love the blue one more. Also, this is rather traditional dubbel to my taste, and when compared to, say, La Trappe, this is much nicer.

Wow! das ist ja lecker, sehr fruchtig, milder Hopfen, exterm süffig. Ein super Bier, ich bin von der 0,75 l Flasche angetan, sie sieht super aus, vor allem mit dem Korken drauf. Ein super Bier aus Belgien!

Hazysh deep amber color, big white head with low retention. No lacing. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma of yeast, malts, dark fruits, raisins, alcohol. Medium sweet taste with slightly dry finish. Very good but not my favorite Dubbel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle thanks to ruigo. This is not the first time I drink this beer and it is curious that in a year apart and from different places the beer varies both in color, taste and aroma... When drunk at Belgium was more red, aroma was very fruity and very noticeable the red fruits. The today has some aroma of red fruits, prune, caramel and some nuts. The head of the first was more white, from today was more beige and lasted less time, the level of carbonation is medium and medium body for both. Aftertaste is sweet and longer for the today beer.
Is promised a new trial in Belgium for the tie ...
