Brooklyn Monster Ale
While at D's Dix Pax and Dogz in Pittsburgh I ordered a glass of Brooklyn Monster Ale, their barleywine. The beer has an amber color with a thin white head. It smells malty and lemon. The taste is sweet with vanilla and caramel flavors and light lemon accents with a slight alcohol bite. It finishes with an oak taste on the back of the tongue. The alcohol content is 11.8% ABV. Overall the Monster Ale was very drinkable and mostly enjoyable. It drank very smooth and light, but packed a nice alcohol punch.
