There's no Belgian beer drinker on earth that hasn't heard of me. From my rich brown body to my chocolate plum nose to my sweet cereal malty taste, there's no doubt that I'm the best Belgian Strong Dark Ale out there. I've spend most of my life since birth, within the walls of the Scourmonth Abbey, which is one of the biggest Trappist monastery in the world. The monks brewed me in 1948 to celebrate Christmas, but by the time I was ready to go beyond the walls, every day seem like Christmas.
As the strongest of the Chimay Trappist Ales, I belong to a very select club of those that love to be aged. I have a powerful aroma and a highly complex flavour which would transform profoundly if you age me in my bottle. If you drink me now, you will get to enjoy my rich aromas of spicy Belgian yeast, bread dough, toffee and caramel, along with a warming sensation from my barely-noticeable 9% alcohol percentage.
