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.

kbudd19 (857) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2013
New bottle with the two face Mikkeller logo. Muddy quad brown pour, jello like carbonation. Aroma of spices, rasins, carmel..flavour is much of the same. This would age well, as the finish is still a bit sharp, and takes away form that malty backbone. . A nice brew though.
