Really nice amber color, finger and a half thick head, champaign like carbonation.
Malty, honey with a slight sweetness on the way down. This is a champaign like beer, one of my favorites by far.

Overall, ignore the price tag and get you some, if you think Budweiser is the king of beers, you are lost. Chimay is my favorite beer so far will definitely need another bottle.

A: Super opaque dark amber. With a creamy coffee head that left a fair amount of lacing.

S: strong honey and malt scents, also raisins.

T: Super sweet malt flavor, very sweet fruity flavor, some alcohol is present but this beer is 9 percent.

M: Good full mouth feel very full.

O: I really enjoyed it. It cost 15 bucks at the store, not sure its worth that but Im glad I got the chance to try it.
