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.

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.
