COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proefbrouwerij in Lochristi, Belgium. Known as Monk’s Brew in the U.S.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pils and pale), candy syrup, brown sugar, hops (northern brewer, hallertauer and styrian goldings) and ale yeast
Monk’s Elixir is a heavy dark Belgian ale inspired by the Trappist monasteries of Rochefort and Westvleteren. The beer style, characterized by its high content of alcohol, distinguishes itself by its dominant yeast character, delicious malt background and balanced hop notes.

Dark brown with a lasting brown head. Aroma is sweet, heavy malty, dried fruit and yeast. Flavor is rather sweet. Full bodied and smooth with some alcohol in the finish. 080111

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2011
750ml bottle. Dark murky pour with a hazy center. Brownish with a fluffy white head. Aroma is a little bland, but with subtle hints of fruit and yeast. Flavor is much like the aroma, yeasty and somewhat bready. Decent but not the best Mikkeller beer out there.

BeerBaboon (1971) - FINLAND - JAN 23, 2011
Mikkellerin munkkieliksiiri sai kunnian olla eilisen maistelusessiomme ensimmäinen olueni. Se oli tumman ruskea olut ja omasi beigen vaahdon. Tuoksu oli tumman hedelmäinen, lakritsinen siirappinen ja hiivainen. Maultaan se taasen oli lakritsinen ja tumman hedelmäinen. Oluen hiivaisuus on hieman erikoinen ja maussa onkin jotain outoa tuhkaisuutta tai jopa tupakkaisuutta. Ehkä hieman kevyt olut 10% vahvuiseksi.

Cloudy dark brown beer. Frothy short lived tan head. Dry and saccharine sweet beer. A little malt and a little fruit but overwhelmed by the dry sweetness. Very dry finish. A little odd and too dry but it’s not terrible.

Thick hazy red-brown pour with a light tan head. Malty aroma with grain and cherry. Not much flavor. Very watery with some biscuit. A bit bitter.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2011
Red-brown with a beige head. Perfumy, rosey aroma with fruit jellycandy, some chocolate mixed in, like a chocolate bar with dried fruits. Slight honey note. Medium body and a slight alcohol tinge in the end.

Sweet fruit cake aroma with lots of toffee and dark fruit. The taste is very sweet, lots of raisins and plums, candi sugar, lots of toffee. Meh.

Geiserich (4122) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 1, 2011
750 ml bottle: Vinous aroma with some dried dark fruits and dark chocolate. Creamy tan head, very dark brown color. Flavor is full of malt, dark sugar and fruits (plums, raisins). Intensive chocolate notes, roasted malt, cacao. Very dry, light metalic finish. Excellent brew.

DuffMan (9543) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy dark mahogany with dirty particulate at the bottom of the glass. Sweet dark caramel, fig paste, spices, rummy wood. Warming finish, nothing harsh. No hint of the dusty/muddy nuances that I find in so many of Mikkeller’s brews. A really drinkable and enjoyable quad.
