Brewed by Trappist monks, they get better with age.

I had my first taste of Trappist beer called Westmalle in Ypres, Belgium.

I checked my local beverage store as I wanted a good brew to watch tonights games.

De Chimay was the choice.

Excellent beer, the taste is unlike any beer I've had.

There is a bar in the city called the Strange Brew. THey have like, a menu for beer and I remember there be a section for a couple Trappist beers and a lil' explaination.

Either way, if you like beer and can find it...Flying Dog brewery puts out a beer called Double Pale Ale or something but it's 11.5% and has a really good, smooth taste to it. I highly reccomend it if you find it.

Yea it is pretty good, but expensive. I usually wait to have it on special occasions.

I have a couple of Chimay Grande's on their way, but it was like $8 a bottle and $170 for a carton. If it taste good I'll be getting a carton.
