Details

Enjoy Chimay Blue in a 750ml sharing bottle.

Bearing the mark of an Authentic Trappist Product, the Chimay Blue Strong Dark Ale is world-class Belgian elegance in a bottle. This authentic Belgian beer is complex, rich and powerful--all of which improve and transform over many years thanks to its classic bottle-conditioning.

Whilst obviously strong the alcohol is barely noticeable giving way, instead, to the beautiful aromas of spicy Belgian yeast, bread dough and toffee—the mark of great craftsmanship. Rich and intense with lovely caramel notes, it’s the lovely dry finish allows the distinct Belgian flavours to linger well into the next sip. Absolutely gorgeous.

Brewery Info

You can always rely on monks to made a great beer, and those at Chimay are no exception. Brewing since 1862, they use fresh water from abbey land and a natural top-fermentation process followed by refermentation in the bottle.

The Chimay beer produced today uses a unique yeast strain selected by Father Theodore in 1948 - giving the beer its own special character and aroma. Our particular favourite is Chimay Blue, which can be aged like a fine wine thanks to its classic bottle-conditioning. Like all Trappist beer, the majority of revenue goes to support charitable projects - what a great use of brewing.

Classic example of a Belgian dark strong ale. Hard to fault. Dark body and off white head. Notes of caramel, dark fruits and roasted coffee beans. Creamy on the palette with light carbonation. Taste is sweet rich malt, dark cherries and faint spice. Tastes even better if left in the cellar for a couple of years.
