Monk's Mistress

Monk's Mistress
Dark Belgian Ale

Ratebeer 3.99 99th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

This was a little sweet for a strong Belgian, but still enjoyable. The tastes and smells are similar; alcohol soaked cherries, plums, bourbon and brown sugar. Very full mouthfeel and complex; every sip provides new flavours. As it warms up a little spice and earth rolls around.
Aftertaste +1

Surprisingly it fades dry and quickly for a big tasting beer. The aftertaste is like a spicy caramel apple.

Alcohol Content +1 11.5%


Value +1

Big Belgian styles are my favourite and this one did not disappoint.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Still in Seattle..still drinking lots of good beers

Overall 8/10

What can I say it is a solid big Belgian style and meant to be shared.
