Notes/Commercial Description:
The inspiration for this beer’s name—previously, La Maitresse du Moine—is the beer itself. Its deep, intense flavors inspired the concept of a monk that seeks solace and satisfaction from the sensory pleasure and mind-provoking effects of this liquid temptress.

Mesmerizing Monk’s Mistress seduces your senses at first sip. Its daunting beauty and intriguing flavor fully captivate your attention. Belgian yeast adds character and complexity. We invite you to give in to this little bit of “heaven on earth”.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a dark, deep, rich, brown-to-black coloring with slight ruby highlights under the light. Tall, dense, bright tan head that starts around half an inch and settles in to a ring on the surface. Aromas of rich black-strap molasses, fig, roasted notes, tangy caramel, and booze. Smells like an ass-kicker. Flavors of rich date, fig, and black cherry, all sweet and robust, with earthy and woody notes highlighting. Very bold flavor profile. The body is smooth, rich, and slick. Sparse lacing along the glass as you drink. Aftertaste of booze, rich old-world fruit sweetness, and wine-like characteristics. Very rich and robust throughout. Slick, quick, rich finish with a subtle boozy warmth and linger. Solid brew...rich sipper.
