Notes / Commercial Description:
2015 Gold Medal from Artisan Awards
2014 Craft Beer Awards Gold Medal

THE ALE: This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake.

THE STORY: The Colombian Monks could really cut loose during the annual retreat hosted by Del at his home near Naivasha Lake in Kenya. Smiling ear to ear and with ale in hand, they would dance the night away! You might find you are doing your own little happy dance after a glass of Dancin’ Monks. Drink, dance, repeat.

On tap at the Draught House during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a hazy brownish color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of toffee and caramel malt, with a little bit of Belgian yeast and some light fruit notes. The flavor is more of the same. The candy sugar makes the beer fairly sweet, as does a heavy dose of toffee and caramel. I get some cherry and orange notes, but their are fairly faint. There is also some Belgian yeast and some spicy notes in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
