Pours a deep copper/brown color with a small cream colored head. It's pretty hazy and a little sediment made it into the glass. There's a steady stream of bubbles flowing up from the center of the Chimay glass.
It has a strong yeasty aroma with a little fruity spiciness. Some sweet bready and toasted malts.
It has a very spicy yeast flavor with lots of fruity esters and peppery alcohol. There's also plenty of sweet bready and toasted malt and hint of caramel. The flavor is very rich and complex. Really a great tasting beer.
It's medium to full body with pretty full mouthfeel. Very high carbonation with lots of prickly fizz. I get a nice warming sensation and it's fairly dry.
This one is a sipper for sure with the high alcohol and fizzy carbonation. A very flavorful, complex beer. Really great beer.
