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.

on tap @ Prospector’s / Denai Nat’l Park AK --- Clear mahogany brown color, ivory head cover, sheets of lace. Solid aroma of maple and malt (in that order). Taste is strong malt that stays steady until the swallow, when brown sugar, maple, and apricots take over, leading to a finish with very light bittering. A big, fabulous brew, in spite of the emphasis on the sweet. Be careful - the alcohol is well-hidden. Highly recommended.

Cigar, tobacco, cocoa, hints of caramel and dark chocolate fudge. Earthy and bready with notes of rye?

With Zack on the patio with an AVO cigar, pours a dark deep mahogany brown color with a small Java head. Nose is sweet, toffee and stong syrupy malt. Taste is malty with caramel and toffe, sweet and very drinkable even with the high ABV. Finishes on charmingly sweet malty notes with an abrupt ending. Nice, real nice ! Quaff Score 9 /10

Black pour from bomber at home. Tan head . Fruity apricot taste on a dark beer, odd. Has the belgium taste i don’t like, but it is very drinkable and tons of flavor.

"All kinds of dark fruit, zesty yeast and mystery sweetness in this bad boy. Full bodied and flavored, complex and tasty. The only fault is its almost too sweet to drink more than a little, as it seems candy sugar and brown sugar are big players, but it’s really nice in small quantities."

Thanks to Deuane for busting this one out for us to try. It is one of the old "La Maitresse Du Moine" bottles.

A - Pours deep brown, bordering on black, with a nice pillow one one finger tall light tan head leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of the typical dark fruits, candied sugar, dark chocolate, tobacco, and some light spice. Only the faintest hint of booze creeps in toward the end of the glass.

T - Starts off with a nice dose of dark fruits; like figs, raisins, and plums; slowly giving way to a mix of dark chocolate, dark roasted caramel malt, tobacco, and some light spice. It is pretty sweet throughout, only growing stronger as it warms. The finish is a mix of dark sweetness and light dryness, lingering for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Full feel with a mix of sugary sweetness and light dryness lingering on the pallet through the finish.

O - Not too bad. I have liked most of the Midnight Sun beers I have had and this one is no different. I liked the dark flavors and the age seems to have really smoothed out the rough edges.
