look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This beer is full of rum, raisin, fig and other sweet dark fruit flavours. A bit of booziness balances well within the overall flavour. I detected some cola taste too. Chimay Blue definitely lives up to its excellent reputation. The appearance in murky brown. The smell is boozy and syrupy. There's depth and complexity here and a fresh experience every time I try it. It seems to work well at room temperature. I think this beer is a total classic.

My mark out of a hundred is 94.
