A very light aroma of barley and malt, pours an amber color with minimal carbonation and not much of a head. Pleasant malt taste, with light body and a barley scotch finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear medium red with a moderate, lasting tan head. Moderate carbonation. Noticeable aroma of malts - cereal like, with a little bit of grass. Taste is hoppy - moderate bitterness, a bit of spruce in the hops. Sweet malt underbody. Warming mouthfeel; full-bodied. Finish is a citrus like bitterness. Kind of neat how the hop tastes are different in the aroma, taste, and finish. Pretty good!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a deep maltiness that sheds some subtle roastiness and some caramel notes. The Malt character is meet by a nice clean bitterness that has some kick. Appearance is a medium dark brown/amber with a pearl head that retains well.

I dont know why, but i never rate Brewster’s beer. Usually because I’d have to add it to the database and then be the only rater of it I guess. Anyways Blue Monk is probably the best beer I’ve had there and this years version is quite good. Light copper with no head by the time I got it. Aroma is caramel, some dark fruits and booze. Easy drinking at 10%, with some caramel, fruit and pretty harsh bitterness.

2012 version on tap. Kinda taste like water after drinking end of days. Pours a clear amber color with a white ring that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit malts with a hint of caramel and dried fruit. Taste is sweet malts, some caramel, dried fruits and some alcohol warming. One of Brewsters best brews.

On Draft 2012 version. Pours a clear copper colour tiny white ring of lace is all after a minute or two. Aromas of caramel, dried fruit, a bit of booze. Flavours of caramel, alcohol, dried fruits, finishes with some slight bitterness. I think recipe has changed since description because there is no chocolate malt in this what so ever.
