The Chimay Blue Cap, baptized "Grande Reserve" in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavor of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer by the monks of Scourmont Abbey in 1956.


It's loaded with rich, caramel aromas and flavors, with supporting notes of baking spice, dried cherry and date, like a holiday fruit cake. Hints of buttered banana and caramelized sugar unfold on the palate, resulting in a flavor reminiscent of Bananas Foster. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with superb balance and little warmth despite the beer's significant alcohol, making it sinfully easy to drink. Lingering sweet-spice and chocolate notes grace the long finish.


It is ideally served at cellar temperature (50 to 55°C).
