COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The inspiration for this beer’s name—previously, La Maitresse du Moine—is the beer itself. Its deep, intense flavors inspired the concept of a monk that seeks solace and satisfaction from the sensory pleasure and mind-provoking effects of this liquid temptress.

Mesmerizing Monk’s Mistress seduces your senses at first sip. Its daunting beauty and intriguing flavor fully captivate your attention. Belgian yeast adds character and complexity. We invite you to give in to this little bit of “heaven on earth”.

While Monk’s Mistress Special Dark Ale accompanies a wide variety of dishes, it is also a lovely and engaging beer to keep you company.

Submit. Surrender. Succumb.

$9 bomber at hucks in Spokane Bottled fourth week of January 2010. Poured to wine glass A: dark brown ale with excellent clarity and a light tan two finger which falls quickly and leaves larger bubbles on surface. S: plums, currants, grapes. Funky Belgian scent with a hair of farm on it. Complex and nice. T: cinnamon, malt, anise, clove. Goddam this is yummy! Burnt sugar, molasses. Mmmmm. M: medium to full body. Low carb. Nice feel. D: so sexy. I’m buying another bottle immediately. Serving type: bottle 01-24-2011

Une bouteille de 22 onces.  La Maîtresse du Moine a une robe acajou et montre une coiffe solidement plantée.  Un fabuleux travail de la dentelle.  Ses parfums sont très denses et énigmatiques.  Son souffle chocolaté est indéniable.  Une mélasse fruitée s’installe avec allégresse.  Des noix mélangées rôties érotisent tous ses mouvements.  Sous mon nez, une banane flambe dans un alcool d’une grande délicatesse. Des épices, du cuir et de la réglisse drapent ses épaules. Des saveurs immensément larges.  Des malts richissimes qui s’imposent.  Des petits caramels foncés fondent sur mon palais.  Je goûte distinctivement à des feuilles de tabac épicé.  Des fruits secs et des noix explosent sur ma langue tandis que des houblons peuvent facilement se confondre avec une merveilleuse gnôle.  En bouche, son corps est dense et crémeux.  J’adore le lent travail de ses bulles : les saveurs s’étendent pendant de longues minutes.  En finale, cette Maîtresse qui roule dans mes yeux a une peau fruitée, bellement amère et chaleureusement aimable.  Une bière de très grande complexité.  Tout à fait fascinante.  Je dirais même plus : superbe.

11/7/2013. 22 oz. bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Sweet malty aromas with dark fruit and spices. Buttery texture with alcohol present. Flavors of dark fruit such as cherries. A hint of sourness. Carbonation is medium-high and the finish is slightly sweet. Interesting brew.

Straight from the traded bottle, post-run, pushing Harper in her swing. Yep, good parenting. Anyway the beer: awesome Belgian style with dark fruit, brown sugar and a little booze. Tended to the quad side of the house. Mighty fine. I guess if you hop the pole (so to speak) Alaska is pretty close to Belgium.

Courtesy of to tderoeck. Thx! 650 ml. bottle sampled during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Approximately 1 year old. Pours dark brown with a tanned head. Smells of brambleberry jelly, sticky dark malts, toffee, molasses, chocolate, sweet herbs. Taste is sweet brambleberries, light blueberries, light molasses, thick malts, herbs, sweet berries, brown sugar, sweet, chocolate, bit cloying, syrupy, dark fruits, faint liquorish vanishing. Very thick creamy malt body. Very nice, I was expecting a touch more from these guys to be honest given the reputation & the previous brew I tried from them.

Ferris (2000) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle - Brown sugar, molasses, chocolate, prunes, booze and other dark fruits. Jet black with a rich brown head. So much brown sugar and booze, it is a bit too much for me. I would have preferred a bit better rounded with some more fruit in the taste. To syrupy.
