I wasn't incredible impressed with this beer the first time or two I had it. This last time, however was a little different. I had a bottle that I had been aging for about three years. I took it to a beer release with a buddy of mine. Wow, what a difference three years made. It was incredibly smooth and had some real depth of flavor. I think I will pick up a couple more of these to age. I love the Chimay Blue fresh...but after tasting this aged...might have to try aging the Blue also.
