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.

rondphoto (2891) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2015
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?

jjgmd (1724) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015
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
