Chimay is one of the eleven Trappist breweries in the world. “Trappist" breweries are certified as the monks must follow strict guidelines such as, 1) the beer must be inside a Trappist monastery by the monks or with their supervision, 2) the profits must be used for living expenses of the monks or donated, and 3) the monks must continue a monastic way of life along their brewing.
Bolder and stronger than its smaller sibling, the dubbel, Belgian Strong Dark Ales are attracted to dishes with intense flavors, salt, and fat, like duck breast with cherry sauce, braised beef cheeks with mushroom sauce, seared foie gras, and stinky and salty bleu cheeses. Treat this Belgian specialty like a robust red wine with dinner or dessert.
