STRONG DARK ALE
Chimay Grande Reserve (blue) Trappist Ale (ABV 9.0%)
is rated 100 on Ratebeer.com and 4.3/5 on BeerAdvocate.com. This copper-brown Trappist Belgian Strong Dark Ale has a creamy head and a fragrance of fresh yeast and roasted malt. Considered to be the "classic" Chimay ale, it exhibits a considerable depth of fruity, peppery character (including hints of plum, raisin and nutmeg).
Orval Trappist Ale (ABV 6.9%)
is rated 99 on Ratebeer.com and 4.2/5 on BeerAdvocate.com. Often referred to as the Queen of Trappists, its color is cloudy, light sunset-orange with a large, foamy head. Aroma is complex with fruit, hops, leather and spices. Its distinctive taste, with profound hop bitterness and a long dry finish, is a result of the use of dry hopping and Brettanomyces (a local wild yeast) during maturation.
Trappistes Rochefort 10 Trappist Ale (ABV 11.3%)
is rated 100 on Ratebeer.com and 4.5/5 on BeerAdvocate.com. It's dark reddish-brown with a compact head; the bouquet is of port wine, leather, apricots, spices and a touch of bittersweet chocolate. Its complex, dark fruit flavors are balanced by some bitterness and a firm malt backbone. One of the world's most intriguing beverages.
Corsendonk Pater Dubbel Ale (ABV 7.5%)
is rated 95 on Ratebeer.com and 3.99/5 on BeerAdvocate.com. It pours a dark reddish brown with a thick tan head; carbonation is fine and lively. Aromas include plum, figs and raisins with subtler notes of apple and cherry; also present are roasted malt and notes of caramelized sugar, chocolate and spice. Taste follows the nose in a similar flavor profile with a finish subtly balancing fruit and spice while remaining smooth and dry, effectively masking an ABV.
Karmeliet Tripel Ale (ABV 8.4%)
is rated 99 on Ratebeer.com and 4.28/5 on BeerAdvocate.com. Made with three types of grain -- wheat, oats, and barley; pours medium gold and clear with a creamy white head. The mix of grains gives a dry, crisp and refreshing flavor, with aromas of citrus and spice. A restrained hop bitterness balances flavors of toffee and malt.
St. Bernardus Abt 12 Abbey Ale (ABV 10.0%)
is rated 100 on Ratebeer.com and 4.46/5 on BeerAdvocate.com. It's an award winning quadrupel that pours a hazy brown with a frothy beige head and expressive carbonation. It boasts the aroma and flavor of dried fruits, plums and raisins, coffee, cherry, bread and caramel. The finish is dry, warm and slightly bitter.
