Midnight Sun Monk's Mistress
My buddy Matt ordered a bottle of Midnight Sun Monk’s Mistress when I ordered from Northwest Liquid Gold, and he decided to share the bottle with me. The beer pours a black color, which was much darker than expected, with a lofty and frothy tan head. The aroma consists of sweet malts, raisin, yeast, and chocolate. The taste is chocolaty with toasted malts, vanilla, and a sweet Beligan yeast on the finish. There is an with an alcohol tinge that comes across the tongue. The alcohol content is 11.5% ABV. I would rate this as a very decent beer, a “spot on” Belgian beer brewed in Alaska.
