Lately I've been quite fond of Belgian ales and other similar strong ale.
I'm drinking a glass of Chimay right now. It's hopped just enough to offset the maltiness, and the high alcohol content ensures a clean aftertaste, with just a hint of sweetness.

There are several beers made in Quebec that compare favorably to Trappist ales. My personal favorites are Don de Dieu and Trois Pistoles.
You know, I have never brewed or even had a Belgian Ale. I've seen Chimay reviewed as top notch many times, but have never tried it. I will do so postehaste. I saw Chimay offered for the first time locally (in 4 bottle packs) just last month, so I guess availability was an issue in my latecoming to the Monk's offerings. Thanks for the review.
