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.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of tertons. Hazy reddish brown with a beige head. Burned malt aroma with both yeast and alcohol - perhaps also a a whiff of wood. Quite full-bodied with sweetish hard roasted malt and vanilla. Subdued bitterness but a very warming alcohol in the finish. 260708

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Dark hazy brown colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is plum, some dark fruits and roasted hints. Also weak notes of alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, hay, brutal berries and spices along with some glueishness. Finish is rather hoppy and caramellish. Nice one, though it suffers a bit of the glueish alcohol dilemma.

Bottled. Mahogany colour. Sweet and lightly almondy with some banana. Richly malty, toffeeish and raisiny, slightly salty finish. Big, flavourful brew, but too sweet.

Opaque black beer. Foamy tan head which tastes of toffee and molasses. Soft palate. Dark malt with undertones of burnt caramel. Something spicy going on - ginger? Semi dry and semi bitter finish. Tasty beer!

Hazy dark red-brown beer. Creamy off white head. Light airy soft palate. Creamy malt, tastes like a wine barrel beer - with a mellow red wine flavour in the creamy mid. Finishes soft and dry with just a dash of spice. Nice beer that drinks well below 11.5%

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle, 22oz. A clear, dark ruby beer with a dense, two-finger head lasting for a long time, and leaving nice lacings. A bit sourish on the nose, with dried fruits and caramel doing most of the work. Sweet, caramel flavor with hints of sourness, berries, some spices, chocolate and coffee, and a little hint of licorice. Full-bodied, and maybe a bit too effervescent. Sweet, spiced finish. Anyway, it’s sure a world class dubbel, complex and well-tasting. 090619
