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.

Bomber to snifter (shared with brew3crew; thanks mikem409). Looks good; a mostly opaque brownish-black with sticky beige lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet, malty, and yeasty with dark fruit notes. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Draught @ City Beer Store, San Francisco. Rated on 15.10.2012.
Pours a hazy amber brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of strong ripe fruits, caramel and some chocolate. Flavour is very rich with strong ripe fruits, sour cherries, yeast, chocolate and strong bitterness. Medium bodied, rich mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes fruity and yeasty. Enjoyable.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - FEB 7, 2013
True to style. Layers and layers that transition across the palate. Aroma is rather simple.. Dark fruit, stonefruit jam, and Belgium yeast. The palate is the true star here.. Round, soft, smooth and creamy.. Great texture and weight.. Not to heavy, not to light and not to sweet.. Complex flavors of fruit.. rum raisins, peaches, apricots, cherries, apples, and bananas, intermingle with roasted malt, Belgium yeast, and spice. Well made.. Not a powerful brew, though a beautiful, complex, elegant, and balanced one. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

arminjewell (6220) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick brownish black pour with nice creamy tan head that sticks around, nice looking. Aroma brought notes of nice dark fruits, dark cocoa, hints of honey, caramel, some nice toffee and molasses notes, slight spice with clove, touch of red fruits and almost a touch of red grape. Taste is a mix of nice dark fruits, bitter dark cocoa mixing into a slight oaky note, hints of raisin, fig, nice clove, cinnamon notes, slight vanilla, honey, nice molasses, finishing pretty sweet but bitters well. Nicely brewed.

As’ Maitresse’. Enamouring rich rum raisin nose. Dark currants, chocolate, some molasses. A bit thin for a beer this big. Still it has a lot of quality to love and pretty authentic for a North American Belgian.

shoulderbroken (2062) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle at tasting, thanks Jonno. Dark brown, golden bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, bit beefy, touch of chocolate sweetness, lots of caramel. Taste is very nice, sweet and chocolate, vanilla creamy, something bit strange/savoury. Some fruitiness again. Very nice texture. Booze lurking there in the background but well hidden. Very nice.

Bottle from Jonno. Nose of caramel, raisins, cola. Very fruity flavor, tangy, spicy, caramel, raisin, figs, cola. Sweet but balanced, a bit light bodied. Good. A bit too much cola notes.
