GLASS: Chimay Goblet
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
Very impressive DARK amber color. I thought it was brown, until 'lighting' it. Nice. Minimal head. Minimal lacing.
Great dark fruit scents. Dark cherries, dates, figs. Big sweet malts. Banana notes. Caramelish brown sugar notes.
Sweet maltiness. Spiciness like cloves. Fresh bread covered in brown sugar run under the broiler so that it carmalizes. Nice dark fruits again.
Good body on this one. Nice and creamy. Definite medium level of thickness, here.
Very good, very drinkable bottle.
This isn't Chimay, by any means, but it would be an acceptable substitute, at a cheaper price, when finances dictate.
Serving type: bottle
