Tasting notes from visit to The Lark in East Northport, NY. This strong ale was on tap and served in a standard pint glass. The bartender explained that the name of the beer relates to monks fasting.
No head, only a small layer of bubbles which quickly dissipated. Dark reddish brown color. Subtle aromas of dried fruits and malt. Raisinets? Some spice. Thought there was an interesting connection between the name of the beer and it's flavor profile because to me the beer had a sangria-like quality to it. Cherry and black currant flavors. Smooth mouthfeel. Good balance between fruit, body and alcohol.
I enjoyed the beer very much but found myself looking forward to switching to something else toward the end of the glass.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Dark red, actually looks a bit like coagulated blood, with a mocha head. Good for halloween I guess.
S: Grape, lemon and vanilla in an interesting nose.
T: Cherry and grape are the dominant flavors and it is delicious. Some orange rind and fruity Belgian yeast esters are present as well.
M: Medium-full bodied and smooth.
O: Delicious and well worth a try. If you can find it, try it.
