Friday's Beer !

Say Hello !

To Chimay Blue ... Grande Reserve ..Extra Strong Ale!

Another fine brew brought to you by Peres Trapistes... these from the Abbey at Scourmont Belgium.

This dusky dream is 9% abv in a short 330ml bottle.

No disappointments here!

She pours lively and dark filling the happy glass with a slightly cloudy deep caramel body topped by tawny froth. The head settles down and disappears after a few minutes but there remains a lively effervescence in the body.

Sweet aromas waft up to greet me ... a combination that truly is like an angel's breath should be!

A Sudden burst of chocolate and coffee at first ... then roasted caramel malts bathed in the essence of spring wildflowers flowers and fresh cut grass.

The first taste taken with a deep inhalation offers a sharp tang that makes the taste buds jump and the salivary glands do a mambo. Pause and try again ... yep!
There is a slightly grainy sensation on the tongue then the complex flavours take over then the after glow of sweet sensations ... then a slight drying ... She begs me to take more of her!

The lingering flavours are like a grande tour once around the bakeshop

Again and yet again without more than a few seconds to consider we do this dance together.

She offers herself ... I indulge ... I savour ... I want more ... and so it goes.

Dark spices ... caramelized citrus ... chocolate ... angels tears ... sunshine ... joy!

This is very good ale.
