Monkís Brew 375ml bottle. Iím going to start by saying this is such an odd beer, and not at all what I expected. Right from breaking the seal on the bottle there were strong berry and floral wine alcohol notes clawing at my olfactory receptors. Pours a dark brown, fizzy with a finger of off-white head. Looks like cola basically. The nose from the glass is masses of sweet red berries, some alcohol, bread and a little roasty malts if I really look for them. The fruits really dominate though, with the malts improving as the beer warms.
Then it gets complex and confusing when you take a sip. Itís sweet fruits at first, and champagne-like sour bitterness a moment later. Then some chocolate/caramel malt briefly pops up before the fruit, booze and wine notes take over. The yeast flavour is very reminiscent of champagne. The whole tasting experience is very much like sparkling rose wine with raspberries in it (Iíve had this), but with the added malts and the more medium body youíd expect from a trappist beer. Itís very lively and clean with a long and boozy-warm finish, slight spiciness too. Very interesting.

Strong aroma and taste of strong alcohol. Thin aftertaste luckily. If you want a beer that tastes heavy alcohol, this is a beer for you. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. Heavy maltaromas of roasted cereal, nutty and caramel, light cooked orange and dough for the hops and yeast, with background notes of date, brown sugar and nutmeg. Head is average size, frothy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic. Palate is medium to full, between oily and creamy, with a lively to fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. Hints of nuts, dark dried fruit and spice, whatís not to love about this tasty Quadrupel

It is a dark red-brown beer, with an amazingly good white head, stays for a good time. In the nose there is; a lot of over time fruits, alcohol, malts and a bit similar of the rf10. It is a medium bodied beer, with a low carbonation. It is a beer full of fruits, and is soft from the malts. Only problem in the beer is the aftertaste, it is to short, it kinda disolves in a light fruity mouthfull. But a very pleasent quad, which stays light and fruity.

Strong smell of plums from a simple Trappist style bottle. Sourer taste than the Belgium beers it imitates but what a good imitation it is. A Trappist beer with a modern twist.

C est raffiné et complexe ... Son côté foncé est trompeur car sous sa robe brune elle cache une légèreté surprenante. Elle mélange les fruits rouges, le caramel et les épices avec brio !
