4.08/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured into Chalice glass
A- Dark copper to mahogany murky body with a fluffy, two-finger khaki-colored head that hangs around.
S- Notes of grape, dark fruit, sweet malt. Smells kind of like wine actually.
T- Dates, figs, grapes, black cherry and a little bit of sweetness with a little tartness. Finishes with a slight, slight bitterness. You would never know it was a 9% until you finish a couple swigs that gave me the ever so slightest warming sensation in my chest.
M- Has a medium-heavy body with an oily feel. Not really resiny, but it leaves a little coating in the mouth. Not harsh despite it being a higher ABV beer.
O- Im a big fan of the pumpkin beers, stouts, and IPAs so Belgians arent really on my radar, but if Im going to drink Belgian...it will be Chimay. I've had the red and blue label and enjoyed them both.
