I love it when I get to use my Chimay glass! Chimay’s Grande Reserve is a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, and strong, dark, and Belgian it is. The Belgian yeast gives it that characteristic fruitiness, and this is heavy with cherry from the nose, through the middle, and into the finish. The hops are subdued, and this is a rich, heavy beer that’s all about the malt and yeast. It’s one of my favorites.
I give it a 4.9 out of 5.
