A - Musty brown in color. Not very clear but I did pour aggressively and didn't worry about the sediment. The bottle gushed when opened. Head is off-white and tight bubbles.

S - Yeast and some phenolic notes. Dark fruits and some alcohol burn.

T - More of the same above. Dark fruits come out. somewhat restrained in my opinion.

M - Thin with strong carbonation.

O - i was hoping for more character. It is very subdued. It is very easy to drink and is enjoyable.

Beautiful dark molasses color with nice aroma of dark fruits and wheat. However when you taste, the dark fruits really struggle to come through and make their way to your taste buds. Therefore you are left with more of a spicy flavor of cloves and ginger. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and finishes with a crisp earthy finish. After recently having the Rochefort 8, I find this Chimay to be a little bit of a let down but still a solid Dubbel.
