On the eye, the beer boasts a deep brown robe with a bright glint. Its extremely fine and smooth foam also possesses a slight shade of cream.
On the nose, notes of vanilla, marzipan and wood are equally predominant. On the palate, the woodiness cloaks the bread crust, roasting, rum aromas and empyreumatical notes
This edition from February 2017 boasts an excellent blend of the characters of Chimay Blue and Rum.
A balance between roundness and power that will be appreciated at best between 6 months and 1 year after its bottling.
