When I first tried Chimay Blue it was like nothing I've ever tasted. It has a special "homemade" flavour that I have come to associate with true trappist beers. The flavours are subtle; earthy yeast and roasted malts with gentle hops. Fresh from the bottle it has a lot of sweetness, and I get the impression that it is designed to be aged before it is enjoyed. For a stout packing 9% ABV it is very smooth drinking, and definitely one of my favourite beers.
