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.

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.

Dark brown color. Huge raisins, brown sugar, molasses, milk chocolate nose. Tons of molasses, vanilla and dark chocolate. Not sweet, or cloying, very drinkable. Enjoyable

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is clear and chestnut brown with a small head. The aroma offers brown sugar, burnt caramels, toffee, booze. The flavor is ok, but a bit much on the charred and scorched malt. Still, a flavorful beer. Pretty light in body for a high abv beer. Overall, this was intriguing and enjoyable.

Pours a hazy amber brown color with fluffy beige head. Aroma is dark fruits, copper, light chocolate. Taste is metallic at first but after a bit of time opening up and warming that fades and youre left with a nice nutty, dark fruit, candi sugar tasting bel strong. Its nowhere near the quality of many of the Belgian varieties but still nice.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2012 Dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar, alcohol is well hidden, decent but I prefer the original, too sweet

Dark brown, slight red tint, lots of foam, little lacing. Having a hard time picking apart the aroma. Hints of Candi sugar, spice, and roast. Flavor is similar but also picking up some dark fruit, cherry. Alcohol is well hidden. This one opens up after warming, but still somewhat disappointing.

Chalsk (1017) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2012
A very good, unique beer. Pours a dark brown, black color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of dark fruit, cherry, candi sugar, with slight roast and chocolate notes underneath. Light sweet peppery start that creams up into a full frothy feel. A nice roasty layer for balance with caramel and dry earthiness on the finish. This is a good beer.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a delicate topping of foam head where as the liquid was a dark brown that was completely opaque. As for the aroma, there was a heavy nose of alcohol along with a soothing scent of authentic Belgian yeast and spice that made me start to salivate immediately. The flavor was laced with spicy Belgian yeast that stayed true to abbey recipes with a thick dash of spices and a sweet base of malts that taste sweet and sticky just like syrup does. This is one of my favorites from Midnight Sun.

On tap at Barcade. Belgian sugar in the nose. Beer is complex, dark fruits. Clearly well made but not quite my cup of tea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
