Chimay “Grande Réserve” Barrel Aged – Rum 2017

 
 
 
Chimay is presenting its new edition of the “Grande Réserve” barrel aged. An exceptional beer which has benefited from a triple fermentation and a prolonged maturation in oak rum barrels. Unpasteurized and unfiltered, this beer offers an inimitable round and woody flavor. (10,5%)
This vintage beer has a woody aroma with a few mild notes of vanilla. It also reveals ester aromas (banana, pear, apricot).
To the palate, it is a rounded, creamy beer. Amongst its sweet and roasted accents, it shows perfect balance, despite a higher alcohol content than its predecessor. Its refined sparkling properties add the finishing touch to the unique character of an exceptional product.
64% of the oak-barrels are sourced from France and 36% from America. This batch n°1 is 10% alc. vol.

A traditional beer made with modern techniques. Bottle fermentation and dry hopped beer. Bottle-fermented and dry-hopped, Monsieur Rock is a bottom-fermented beer brewed using traditional methods by Jean-Marie Rock, a master brewer with almost 40 years’ experience. Monsieur Rock is a blond beer with a 6.6% alcohol content. It is brewed using just 4 ingredients: Pilsner malt, aromatic hops, water, and a specially selected bottom-fermenting yeast. This very low-temperature, bottom-fermented beer is produced using the same methods as were used to make certain special beers more than 40 years ago, making it a traditional beer brewed using modern techniques. The fermenting period lasts for over a week, and the beer matures in the maturation tank at a low temperature in the presence of aromatic hops. A specific yeast strain is used for bottle fermentation.
