It's been a hell of a week.
Chimay Grand Réserve or Chimay Blue
11.2 fl oz bottle
Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Color: opaque dark reddish-brown
Head: cream-colored, disappears quickly and leaves hardly any trace on the glass
Nose: raw meat, cellar must, old water, lemon, and a bit of sea air
Taste: malty caramel and copper, slightest tinge of sea water, well balanced between sweet and bitter.
This ale leaves a lingering heat on the back of the throat long after the last sip.
