4.25/5 rDev +11.5%
Monk's blood has been a go to, over the top Belgian style for me for years. It is a great example of A,merican brewers doing Belgian better than the Belgians.
It has that red tinge that have it a banner. The aroma is fruity and real.
The taste bites nice and big, like a double should. The aftertaste is log lasting and slightly sour.
This is a beer you will want again and again, as I do.

A - Dark mahogany body with an ambivalent combination of bright ruby and muddy brown highlights. Khaki head with ok retention and low lace.
S - Sweet cherry cordial, muscat grape. A little artificial on the cherry note. Touches of cedar and caramel.
T - Very similar to the nose. Sweet (maybe overly sweet) cherry pie filling. Oak, caramel, molasses, pumpernickel bread, and raisin bran muffins.
M - Medium body. Nice carbonation.
O - The style edges sweet, but this beer still a touch too sweet. That said there's a really nice, well balanced complexity to the flavor profile.

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.
