Good beer. I am more of a hefeweizen guy but this beer isn't too bitter and has a nice taste to it.

How can one not appreciate the uniqueness of this beer from one of six remaining brewing monasteries in the world? Proprietary yeast and water combine to create this velvety smooth dark ale with a complex, candied caramel character.

Pours dark with a thick, frothy tan head. Light smell of bubblegum. Tastes of bubblegum, oak, plum, figs and alcohol. Creamy feel with a light alcohol burn. Good beer!

Good for a Belgium, esp at 9%; birthday beer with D & J Freeze

Heavy, malty, Trappist ale. Good for sipping.

Loved this beer. Dark but smooth. Pricey though

Not bad. Couldn't drink more than one at a time. It was a little bitter, but not too bitter.

Medium carbonation, light mouthfeel. Notes of raisins and plum but not too sweet. Aspects of toffee. Strong taste. Must try. There is some mild to moderate bitterness, which is nice and not overwhelming. The beer is malt forward. Unbelievably delicious. Incredibly smooth.

Light, crisp and more malty than I'd prefer from a clean Belgian. Mouthy and thinner than the other Chimay varieties. Letting it warm a bit now. After warming this smoothed out a bit. Slightly carbonated but more even. Good beer.
