chimay blue.

It's been a hell of a week.  

Chimay Grand Réserve or Chimay Blue
11.2 fl oz bottle
Style:  Belgian Strong Dark Ale
ABV:  9% 
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.
