Colore ambrato scuro, schiuma corposa e persistente, carburazione media. Sentori di malto e ferro che svanisce con la bevuta. Al palato malto, crosta di pane e albicocca. Finale amaro, birra molto equilibrata e molto bevibile. Zilb (325) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 18, 2017

750mL corked & caged bottle - VERY old - 07/08 vintage? Label has seen better days.
Bugger to get the corked out but presented with a gorgeous looking beer - deep ruby body, small but dense beige head persists.
Aroma subtle but intriguing - dried fruit notes of date, sultana, prune, vinous red fruits, honey & caramelised sugar/fruit.
A sultry silky smooth ride on the palate - soft fine carbonation, texture is velvety, perhaps lost a bit of weight with age but ethereally light, tremendous balance.
Palate is just sensational for an aged beer - starts sweet with those caramelised malts, good weight upfront then slims down with stacks of sultana & date and porty nutty rancio notes on a long spicy yet supremely well balanced finish.
The joys of great ales with maturity behind them - better than any fresh Chimay Red I’ve tried! djcampbell (159) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2017
Špičkové pivo, podobně jako všechny Chimaye. Exluzivní pivíčko po všech směrech. Westy1130 (94) - New York, USA - APR 1, 2017
A toned down version of The Grande Reserve, but just as enjoyable. Pairs excellent with Chimay’s cheeses and bread. Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours with a good head and lacing. The aroma is pleasant, yeasty, fruity and malty, some banana as well. The taste is similar but is surprisingly flat. Not in terms of carbonation but flavour. Quite a subtle taste, good but could be better. rodsquad (243) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours hazy ruby brown with thick beige head. Aromas of strong barley sugars, green herby freshness with gentle, bittering, piney hops. Tastes as nose with a light peppery yeast. It has a sharp lively carbonation and a light body. It’s light and refreshing with a bitter moreishness.
