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.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown, beautiful tan head. Fantastic fruity aroma with a slight chocolate and earthy component. Explosive fruity flavors with a nice pleasant malty bitterness. Nice full body. Are those hops I taste? this is one fantastic Belgian impersonator, even better than most Belgians. Get on your bad motor scooter and get to the Table and Vine in Northampton, MA and get you sum...

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.

Prufrockstar (959) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Draft at bottleworks. Pours like a stout but with a fine-bubbled khaki head that dissipates pretty quick. Aroma of bubblegum, cotton candy, candi sugar and copper. Taste: well that’s awfully nice. Moderately sweet but that drops away by the finish. Still plenty of cotton candy, adding in some dark fruits. This one is delicious. Palate: full body, slick coating texture. Overall: so far the best beer of the night. Beastie talked me into the extra 0.1 -- definitely deserves it.

thirdeye11 (5544) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2014
(Draught) clear, viscous-looking deep brown, not much head. Nose of dark Belgian candi sugar, banana, raisin, rum, complex and sweet. Taste is sweet even for a guy who likes sweet beers. Dark candi sugar, raisin, dates, light banana and a rummy finish. Finishes sweet and kind of thick in body.

Small pour from a bottle. Pours dark chestnut with a large creamy brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is dark sugars, spices, yeast. Flavor is quite sweet, light zesty bitter, spicy with stronger bitterness on the finish. Medium body, some harshness and a fair amount of heat. Decent.
