look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Hazy dark brown. Thick off-white head.

S: Big malty smell, with lots of dark fruit and spice.

T: Sweet malt flavor upfront with lots of spice. Dark fruit tastes like cherry and plum. The booze is there but it's masked pretty well. Hops isn't too noticeable. This has a malt-forward profile.

M: Medium bodied,with some carbonation. Very wet and smooth.

D: Very nice. My favorite among the Chimay's. I haven't had this for a few years, but it's nice to come back to.
