According to the brewer Monolith is a Barleywine brewed in a Belgian trappist style using candied sugar. After a 4 week-lasting first fermentation and storage is carried out, the beer undergoes second fermentation by adding yeast and candi sugar and simultaneous addition of aromatic hops. After 4 weeks of secondary fermentation the beer is exposed to oak aging for another 4 week period, followed by separation of yeast deposit and oak particles. The brewing process ends with several week long maturation. To the beer:
375 ml bottle, BB reads March 2011, into tulip.
I've been having doubts about the correct "systematic position" of this brew. Pours effervescent, deep coppery body topped by mousse, persistent tan head exhibiting good stickage to the walls. Aroma is of prevalent resinous hops with malty sweetness, candi sugar, raisin-like fruitiness and alcohol aromatics. Malty body with fruity tartness of raisins and berries, bready notes, slight alcohol warmth, ends semi-dry. Medium bodied and albeit moderately carbonated somewhat flat. I have a feeling that this beer doesn't quite know what it is, an imitation of BSDA, a barleywine or something else. A mess.
