This is a richer version of our Dancin’ Monks Dubbel, conditioned on oak cubes used by Spirit of Texas Distilleries to age their Pecan Street Rum. While no additional alcohol is derived from the conditioning process, the oak adds a rich complexity to the ale. Pair with dark chocolate desserts or bold cheeses.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle:   Deep caramel, thin sudsy sandy head, little lacing.   Dark pitted fruit on the nose, bready, in the dark sense, sweet, caramel malts, a bit rummy, with soft wood and noticeable alcohol.   Bright dark pitted fruit and dark bready malts up front, alcohol, with a woody and soft rum background.   Still seems very green, young, and slightly brash.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Heavy barnish and musty notes on the finish, bready, dusty, some dark pitted fruit, wood, rum, and alcohol.   Lots going on, still seems a little young even.   Decent little beer, or should I say big beer, but remains a little green and brash as is.   Otherwise enjoyable.

Dogbrick (10871) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2015
2012 Batch 002 Bottle #1187. The beer pours a murky dark brownish-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that dissipates gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, fruit and yeast. Full-bodied with flavors of dark fruit, earthy yeast and grainy malt. The finish is sweet with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

dalekliz (907) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 16, 2015
2014 bottle. Pours a dark murky reddish-brown with a big off-white head that lingers. Sweet aroma, of dark fruits, booze, malt, brown sugar. Taste is metallic and boozy, of malt, rum, dark fruits. Lingering fruity sweetness and malt that ends watery. Not bad.

monk191 (1606) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
A decent quad, nothing too memorable. Pours a clearish Amber with a thin tan head. Smells of plums. Taste is more plumbs, with a bit of vanilla, and an average finish. Had in the bottle.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2014
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Murky copper with a thick tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of plums and some raisins as well. Flavor is very sweet with lots of dark fruits and tons of caramel malts. Surprisingly light and thin bodied for nearly 11%. Really sweet and kind of nice.

gyllenbock (7166) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle bought by a colleague who recently visited Houston. (thanks Wolff) Dark amber with a small head. Nothing special with this one. Dryish with dried fruit, some nuts and caramel. Warming alcohol in the finish.

@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: ganska snäll doft men lite het. Smaken är torr, kola, nötter. Ok men inget mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

BelgianBeerGal (3670) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2014
C&C bottle from HV WF. Pours a light bronze color with a quickly dissolving head but active carbonation. Typical quad aroma with some sweeter dark fruits, prunes and malts. Flavor is a little disjointed; resembles a quad but a little too boozey and spicy. Okay.
