21st Amendment Monk's Blood
My buddy Matt picked up a four-pack of 21st Amendment Monk’s Blood, and I gladly accepted a can to try. The beer pours a cloudy dark amber color with a frothy off-white head. The aroma consists of radish, raisin, sweet malts, and fig. The taste is big, bold, and sweet with malts, raisin, radish, earthy hops, and carrot. The finish has a slight dry alcohol bite and the after taste lingers with a bit of raisin. The alcohol content is 8.3% ABV. Monk’s Blood is a wonderful Belgian Strong Dark Ale with a wide variety of earthy flavors, Belgian accents, and pinch of alcohol.
