Chimay Grande Reserve Ale (Blue)

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale
ABV: 9%

Fun Fact About the Brewery:

Chimay is one of the big boys of the Belgian Trappist beer world. Founded in 1862 in the Belgian municipality of Chimay, the beer is still brewed by monks in the trappist tradition and is sold to help support the monastery.


Pours a very dark, brown/black color with a velvety head that lingers. Lots of spices, figs, and plums in the flavor profile. A very smooth and overall fantastic example of the style. There's a reason why this ale is so widely distributed. You can find it in just about any grocery store and it's definitely worth it.

Rating: 4/5
