UPDATED: NOV 11, 2019 Bottle. Dark brown with high carbonation big sea foam head. Sweet alcoholic dried fruits/raisins on the nose. Rounded complex malt sweetness on the tongue, mild herbal yeast esters, caramel going down the throat. One of the delicious Belgian classics!

rja (421) - BREDA, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2019 As long as I drink beer, this was one of my favourites. Rich and full in taste without being very sweet. I have this one always in my fridge.

HopsLove6 (89) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2019 2018 bottle aprox 1 year old. Great beer taste is fantastic somewhere between a double and a quad. Seems more boozy than its 9%. Head goes quickly. Fairly sweet and medium carbonation. Malty and caramel. One for the re purchase.

AleRates37 (4) - FRANCE - OCT 8, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2019 Je ne suis pas adepte des bières très alcoolisées mais je dois dire que la Chimay Bleue réserve bien des surprises! Une bière profonde à la mousse blanc crème. Nez acide type cassis et des notes chocolat/agrumes en bouche. Très bonne triple.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2019 Bière extraordinaire, grande invention des Trappistes, goût formidable et très digeste et de plus une des rares bières qui est un bon complément contre l'hyperglycémie ( pas plus de deux bières le soir).

je_corn (105) - - OCT 4, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2019 Dark, clear brown. Malty nose and sweetish, full mouthed malty taste. Toffee, malt and nuts...very clear, clean taste.
