Product Description

The Chimay Blue Cap, "baptized' "Grande Reserve" in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavour of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer, explaining the presence of a "vintage". This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odour, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note.

Drizly Expert Notes

Chimay Grande Reserve is a 9.0% Belgian Dark Strong Ale that highlights the powerful flavors that can be attained in Belgian brewing tradition. As the abbey's strongest beer, this dark ale packs dark fruit, peppery and winter spice, caramel, light roast, drying alcohol, and high carbonation. Chimay Grande Reserve is for those looking for high impact in flavor from their Belgian beer. And like a fine red wine, one can age this bottle-conditioned beer for years and years as the beer develops and matures in the bottle.

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.
