Chimay Strong Dark Blue Label Beer

Perfect Christmas Beer! Incredibly complex Belgian trappist dark ale with flavours reminiscent of port. Notes of caramel, mocha, sweet notes of figs and creamy chocolate with warming Christmas spices. Absolute match made in heaven with strong cheese and chocolates.

For the full Chimay story, we need to go back to 1862, and start at the Sint-Sixtusabdij Westvleteren, a Monastery still revered today for their extremely elusive produce. A small group of monks from this brotherhood were given a parcel of land in 1850 by Prince Joseph de Chimay in order to develop economic activity in the region. The foundation cross at the Abbey bears the inscription ‘On July 25, 1850, the Cistercian monks founding the abbey of Scourmont began to praise God and to clear the land’. As is the trappist way this economic activity was centred around farming, the production of cheese, and eventually a brewery.

    Now this is a beer. Nice dark colour with a strong but smooth taste. If you like dark ales, this has got to be up there with the best of them.

    I really like my malty ales, this one is up there with the best. Malty with a hint of chocolate. Waaay too easy to drink!!
