Now Quaffing: Chimay Grande Réserve (Blue)
Pours a deep reddish brown with only minimal traces of light through the glass around the edges. The head fills the glass and "fizzes" away slowly without much lacing. Smell is sweet--ripe plums. Taste is sweet with plums and dark grapes mingled with a hint of alcohol for a nice warming effect with each sip. The mouthfeel is full is body and there is a nice crispness with each sip from the fine carbonation. Drinkability is okay, but the high ABV certainly creeps up on you quickly. I keep getting outstanding 750mls of this, always good quality, and never a bad bottle.
