Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Deep mahogany brown with big fluffy off white head. Good retention That dissolves to a thin sheet over the beer.

S: Sweet roasted malts, caramels, dark fruits including raisin and cherry.

T: Malts dominate with some spiciness and fruits in background.

M: Nice carbonation. Bubbly on the tongue with medium body. Some alcohol burn on the tongue in an enjoyable way.

O: This is widely available beer, and very enjoyable. It really sparked my interest and opened my eyes to the craft brewing industry. My life has not been the same after my first Chimay, and I always look forward to the next one.
