A powerful smooth strong ale to suit all tastes. Monkey Wrench is mid brown to ruby in hue with aromas of fruit hops malt and roast malt together with some sweetness.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Copper color with a small, but stable khaki colored lid. Loads of lace. Really need to sniff deep to catch much from this one. HInts of earthy malt and dark caramel. Yup, quite english in flavor. Some earth malt and a ever so mild licorice bite. Certainly nothing exciting. Fairly thin in feel. Nice bitter linger, but the flavors, or lack thereof, left me wanting more. But not necessarily more of this.

Tranquillity (1577) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2008
Bottled. Dark brown, amber body with a thick, big-bubbled beige head. The aroma is burned with rubber and cookies, but a bit metallic. Taste burned, chocolate but the finish is metallic and a bit unbalanced. Ok to drink - a bit boring and average though.

ContemplateBeer (1818) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pictures bottle from Keg Liquors; split four ways. Aroma: Rich caramel biscuit and some hazelnut as well; maybe a little in the way of woodsy, earthy hop character. Appearance: Slightly hazy chestnut pour with a ring of bubbly tan head. Flavor: Hazelnut over caramel throughout with a subtle woodsy puff towards the finish, which is mostly dry. Palate: Lighter body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Didn’t move me much one way or the other; could certainly drink again, but not in a hurry to grab another bottle. Preferred the Morocco ale much more.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Dark brown/ruby topped by a small, frothy, off white cap. Mild flavor and aroma- roasted toffee, toasted grains, light cocoa powder. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Drinkable, would not buy again.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
A hoppy ale in aroma and to an extent in character but negated by its strength.
