3.4/5 rDev -10.8%
I like 21st Amendment brewery and have enjoyed most of their beers that I have sampled, this is one of their top contenders in my book.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, deep mahogany color with a frothy head. Fair amount of sediment that appears after poured. Thin line of retention while drinking and minimal lacing.
Smell: Malty and sweet. Dark fruits like figs or raisins.
Taste: Sweet, very malty, caramel, light on the oak flavor, a little fruity.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, carbonated and crisp.
Overall: I liked this beer immediately upon trying it and would definitely drink again. The high alcohol content adds a kick, but the flavor is not compromised, and I find it a nice unique flavor that is enjoyable.

4.1/5 rDev +7.6%
I've been aging cans of this beer for the last two years. I finally opened the last can today. My last can (at 18 months of aging) was really impressive.
I poured this beer into a chalice.
I enjoy the aroma coming off this beer. I like the sweet smell and raisins from the top of Monk's Blood.
The flavor is really good. The richness makes for a good sipper. You get more of the dark fruit in the body.
21st Ammendment made a good brew in Monk's Blood.

Poured into a tulip glass, it pours a dark chestnut color w/ hints of ruby red. A 1-finger thick tan dense head forms on top quickly and slowly dissipates to a very nice surface layer w/ some lacing on the glass.
Heavy on the plums with some brown sugar...very sweet on the nose. Some spices also come through as well, but not as apparent. Cherries also to accompany the plums.
Sipping reveals a very interesting flavor. Much more malty and "nutty" than expected. The fruits come through (plums or cherries) but not tart as thought. Some biscuits come through as well w/ the yeast flavor. Alcohol burn is there for sure on the swallow as well as a very flavorful aftertaste.
Big bodied brew w/ some nice carbonation balance and a nice burn on the finish. Maybe more burn than hoped for on the finish, but the feel is overall nice!
Overall, I love 21st Amendment, but honestly as much as I like the dark belgian style, this is not one of my favorites. I tend to enjoy some of their other offerings a bit more. Not a bad brew to say the least, but I was slightly disappointed for $12 for a 4 pack.
