The Chimay Grand Reserve was good....but not so good I would want seconds...thanks to the high ABV. The beer poured a darker brown color with virtually no head and no lace. The scent was a roasty Belgium sweet malt. The taste was a good combo of roast and caramel mixed with Belgium sweetness. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Overall this was a tasty beer....but too big to try too much!
