Pop goes the beer!
Man, this Chimay has some carbonation. After the big boom I poured a tulip glass full and the head almost spilled out. Three fingers at least. The carbonation stays with the drink for quite some time. Very little lacing but the beer was kinda cold.
The cork says 11/05 but you can smell the alcohol first and foremost.Fruits malt and nuts are the main aroma after that.
Malty sweet flavor meets the tounge and a toffee and cinnamon aftertaste followed by a warm alcohol feel in the back of the throat.
This is by far the better of the three Chimay's available.
Mouthfeel is very pleasant with a slight resiny feel after the carbonation leaves.
all thing said, this is a very good beer.
