Belgian beer review: Chimay Blue

This is a post in the Belgian beer review series.

Belgian Beer Review, originally uploaded by Chiva Congelado.

Chimay Blue is a dark trappist beer (9%) with a very complex taste. At the beginning I didn't like it very much, but once my palate got used to it I started to appreciate the different subtle touches of smoke, chocolate and even a little bit of what I can only describe as dried figs. It packs quite a punch, though, so be careful and drink it responsibly.
