    Not red like you might imagine, but more of the brown of a Monk's Robe, keeping with the Abbey style. While the nose is nothing but sour, it would be nearly impossible to pick out all the subtleties. Cinnamon, vanilla, wood, caramel sweetness, clove spice, sweet malt. There is some sourness at first and at the very finish, but not as much as the smell would have you expect. A ton going on with this one, and at 8.3% ABV, by the time you figure it all out, you won't be able to figure anything!

    C. Clear
    H. Dark Red/Brownish
    N. Strong malt and figs

    21st Amendment hit the style on the head. It is probably the closest thing to a Belgium Beer that I have had from the US. Monk’s Blood pours a deep rich red/brownish color from the CAN, yep can! The taste is just like the nose strong malt, and dark fruit like figs, plums, and dates. Pretty easy to drink but the after taste is a bit rich. I would say that it is worth a try but you’re not missing out on too much if you can’t get your hands on it.

    Cola colored with reddish hue around the edges. Small offwhite head dissipates quickly leaving a ring around the glass.
    Aromas of dark fruit, bready malts, molasses and faint alcohol.
    Taste is complex and very sweet. Sugary and malty up front, very light on the hops. Figs come through in the aftertaste, faint hint of smoke. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.
    Mouthfeel was lighter than expected, very smooth and medium bodied, carbonated perfectly.
    All this and then some from....a can! Give it a try!
