COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monk’s Blood pays homage to the monks of Belgium’s monasteries who have been brewing some of the world’s great beer for centuries. During times of fasting, the monks subsist solely on beer, which they refer to as “liquid bread”. Beer, quite literally, is in their blood. The most sublime of the monk’s premium brews is dark like blood, rich and nourishing. 21st Amendment founders Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan traveled to Belgium to develop the recipe for this special beer, visiting small, traditional breweries in the hop fields of west Flanders, not far from the famous Trappist abbey of Westvleteren. Monk’s Blood is designed to pair beautifully with rich winter stews, creamy cheeses, unctuous desserts or just by itself, in a Belgian tulip glass, with a good book by the fire.

fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Can from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, WA
Dark amber to brown color, hazy, with small fizzy head, not persistent. There is a mild aroma of sweet candi caramel and some Ale yeast and relative fruity touch. Correct body strength; caramel flavor, candi sugar, lean mouthfeel, moderate sweetness; there is an unfortunate impression of sweet liquorice and vegetables; it has relatively low bitterness.
Once again, an American/Belgian boring-ish beer.
