On draught at the Collins Pub, served in a small chalice, Monk's Blood is dark ruby with a small off-white head that leaves very light nice lace.
Smell is rich, sweet, dates and prune. Some is off, what is the FG of this, like 1.040??
Taste is similar, too sweet though for my taste in the style, and lacking esters. The alcohol creeps out a bit too much.
Mouthfeel is semi-dry, medium bodied, lacking digestibility.
Drinkability is on the lower side style wise. I knew I'd had this before and didn't like it, and am wondering why I bothered again. Fail.
Serving type: on-tap

The 12 oz can poured clear, dark red-brown with a semi-durable tan head that left fine sticky lacing.
Feel: Full body with excellent, soft carbonation.
Cinnamon, vanilla and figs in the nose.
Cinnamon, vanilla and figs dominate the flavor which also has a touch of oak and a malt base. Moderately spicy. About equal balance of bitter and sweet.
O: tasty and complex. Worth seeking.

A- Limited head quickly dissipates over a brown ale. Slight effervescence continues throughout the drinking experience.
S- As it warms, the baking spice autumnal smells come through. A pleasant smelling beer.
T- Stays in keeping with the smell, not overpowering with any booze flavor. At the colder temp, the flavors aren't too pronounced. (Probably intensifies and smooths out as it warms up)
M- A little thin for a high alcohol ale, no burn present.
O- Definitely a drink that I should have left on my counter for a while before drinking it. I'm not running to the store to get another but I certainly wouldn't turn one down if it were offered to me.
