Ok I'm going to start by saying this might be my favorite beer ever. So the rest of what I say should be taken with a grain of salt.

I originally tried this beer simply because it was named after Thelonious Monk. After one sip I was immediately hooked, and several bottles later it only reaffirms my love of this beverage.

A pronounced and bold flavor that has hints of caramel, figs, and toffee with a large alcohol bite. To me this beer has layers of flavor and each sip seems to reveal another depth to the beer. I wouldn't just put this above all other Belgian style beers, but all beers period. This is not a mellow beer by any means, it is a reach out and grab you by the jugular beverage.
