With the developing interest in Belgian abbey ales and the monasteries that brew them, it’s time to remind the world that here in the U.S., we have a Monk of our own. Jazz icon Thelonious Monk is the inspiration for North Coast Brewing’s new Belgian-style abbey ale called, appropriately enough, Brother Thelonious. The beer is being released in conjunction with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz (www.monkinstitute.org), and the brewery will make a contribution to the Institute for every case sold to support jazz education.
2013 vintage - 9.4% abv Like a Belgian “Dark Strong Ale”, the beer is rich and robust with an ABV of 9%. The package is a 750 ml bottle with a traditional cork and wire finish and features a label picturing the jazz master himself.

Ligger väl i linje med förväntningarna på stilen. Kanske något mesigare en än belgare.

Pours a copper brown with a lite tan head. Lacings line the glass. The aroma is malty with a hint of cinnamon. The flavor has pepper, orange and malt. This beer has a medium-full body with crispness to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice Belgian dark, a bit of a fruity taste and seems like a little fizz but not too noticeable, high ABV and a nice little buzz, smallish serving glass but still very nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

procraste (472) - FRANCE - OCT 12, 2015
C’est en effet très Belge et ça a pas l’air si strong que ça, mais lorsque l’on jette un oeil sur les ABV, ça l’est assez tout de même ! Du belge de bonne qualité avec quelques arômes traînants caractéristiques un peu de banane aussi ... Mais au final, une bonne tenue, une allure certaine et un petit côté légèrement funky. Donc ainsi, même si ce n’est plus mon style de prédilection, c’est tout de même sympathique.
