Walking in blind. Never heard of this beer. Color and appearance was consistent with a Flanders, more on the brown rather than red side. Had a slight sweet aspect to the aroma. Mouthfeel was a little thin as was the taste. A little astringent on the front and mid palate. I mean an off astringency, for a Flanders ale. There was not the fuller flavors to fill in the spaces between the sour aspects of the style.

A-Brownish-red with a tan head that dissipates quickly leaving a nice ring of foam

S-Not much going on here at all. Some alcohol is present and what I can only describe as a typical red ale smell. Very weak nose.

T-Like the nose there is not much in the flavor department either. What I can pick out are brown sugar and some dried fruits. Not real sourness or even complexity. It is more malty than hoppy.

M-Not too thick or too thin, average.

D-Easy to drink because there is nearly no flavor.

Overall, not a good beer. I don't know what happened when they brewed this, but I think it is safe to say this is not what was intended.

Bottle. Had this one in the cellar for quite a while and finally had the chance to open it up. Poured into a NB tulip glass a slightly hazed dark copper color with a light tan head. The aroma is malty with orange, slight booze note as well. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet start with a building level of citrus rind note. This is like a hoppy red with too much bitterness in the end. Laces nicely. Not a big fan of this one.

Having had this on tap at the La Jolla Public House in La Jolla, CA, I found it to be a very good, enjoyable beer with solid character that went well with food, but definitely with a rather one-dimensionally alcoholic fruity-fortified wine character.

Deep red, it had a creamy medium pale tan head slowly shrinking to a foamy ring, then nothing, but a little bit of lace.

Aroma was strong meaty fruit, alcohol, wet bread, steak sauce.

Taste was nice, creamy fruit, warming alcohol, fortified wine/port. It had a very good, full body, sweet-spicy character, good with burgers, but, as noted, rather one-dimensional.

Serving type: on-tap

I had this at ChurchKey from their bottle list. Monster rouge is a tasty but slightly unusual Flanders red. Was the butterscotch flavour deliberate?

A: Dark orange with a head that fades quick. 4

S: Alcohol. Fruit. Spice. 4

T: Spicy cloves and alcohol with a slightly butterscotch finish and some sourness. 4

M: Medium body. 4

O: 4
