3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark with ruby highlights, very thin tan head. no head, no retention... no lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, belgian yeast, bready, malt, caramal, molassas. Medium body, somewhat chewy. Plenty of carbonation. Alcohol present and in the after taste. Taste is molassas, dark fruits, caramel sweetness, brown sugar, alcohol in the finish. In my estimation, Thelonious deserves a better brew named after him.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013 Dark cherry red appearance. Palate is filled with figs and cherries, very carbonated, high alcoholic taste. All fades away rather quickly leaving only fruitiness which warrants this a near 4 rating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Brown color with lots of thick late-colored foam but settling down to a finger. The smell slowly filled the room- apricot, yeast, caramel and licorice. The taste had an initial metallic feature followed by sweet fruits, some yeast, and licorice and alcohol in the end.

I was first drawn in by the name, then the description. This is a great beer with smooth tast that I love to have in dark beers. Be carful though, the 9% alcohol level can creep up on you fast.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Brother Thelonious is a beer to drink when you are sitting with a friend! It changes flavour around 3 times with every sip you take and will keep you intrigued until the last drop
