Served in an over-sized wine glass. (Grabbed the first thing I saw in my cabinet...Chimay signature glass).
Appearance: A very dark copper, body is still transparent creating a 1/4" off white head with little bubbles and sediments on the body.
Smell: Right from the pour you are smell this and from strength alone you feel
Taste: Light cinnamon with an easy alcohol feel and I can't be the only feeling the dark fruits, berries and plum all over the body subtle but evident.
Mouth: Medium and crazy smooth feel, not bad at all.
Overall:Saw a six-pack of this asking for me to buy it just a week ago at my local beer shop and though I can't say too much about this beer but then again I can't say too little...it's subtle and hit's you in the end. That is definitely when you appreciate this "winter warmer". This beer plus your favorite glass equals one pretty good time. Salud!

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle cellared for one year.
A: Pours a muddled brown color with lighter burnt Siena hues. Somewhat murky. Khaki colored head settles quickly. Spotty lacing.
S: crust, toast, dark caramel, pinch of cocoa. Very earthy with hop scents of pine, spicy garden herbs, and wet leaves.
T: Caramel. Lots of dark toast and crust. Cocoa and nutty chocolatey tastes build. Pitted fruits, such as dates and plums. Hops are assertive and bring spicy herbal notes, pine, and an overall earthy tone. Flash of citrus. Cocoa, chocolate, and nutty tastes mingle with earthy and oily hops on the long finish.
M: Medium thick body. Rich and creamy with a bit of heft in the mouth. Surprisingly high hop astringency, though it isn't a bother. Comforting alcohol warmth.
O: The assertive hopping was a bit of a surprise, but a welcome one. This beer perfectly fits its winter seasonal role. Rich, robust, and warming. No need to kill a beer like this with spices. A pleasure to sip, and an excellent buy at an approachable price in the six pack. Cellars very well to boot.
