Chimay Blue Grand Reserve Barrique Oak Aged 2016 Cognac 10% abv

Edition October 2016

The barrel-aged Chimay Bleue of October 2016 stands out from classic Chimay Bleue thanks to the many nuances provided by the additional fermentation in wooden barrels. 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.

3 fermentations: tank, barrel, bottle. Aged in barrels for around 6 months

The beer mainly tastes wood and cognac.

For this 4th batch, 3 types of barrels were used. 31% of French oak 40% of American oak 29% of new cognac

On the nose, notes of black tea, jasmine and wood are equally predominant.

On the palate, the woodiness cloaks the bread crust, roasting, mocha and Cognac aromas as well as the empyreumatical notes.

This 2016 edition of barrel-aged Chimay Bleue boasts an excellent blend of the characters of Chimay Bleue and Cognac. This balance between roundness and powerfulness is best appreciated between 6 months and 1 year after it is bottled.
