A nice beer from my hometown fort Bragg, CA. I love Abby style ales and this doesn't disappoint. A medium red amber pour with a nice head. Tastes very much like chamey red frankly. Which I think is a big compliment. It is malty and clean without being too figgy. I like the full body of the palette without being overwhelming.

I have found this beer is best when drank while listening to the man himself, Thelonious Sphere Monk. Much like listening to Monk tunes, it leaves you with satisfied palate and puts you in uniquely delightful mood. And anyways what can be better than listening to Thelonious, and drinking good beer. Best when drank ’Round Midnight.

Wow. Liike a complex jazz tune, this beer has a lot going on. There are rhythms and tempos and chords that at first seem chaotic, but soon the beauty of the whole emerges. With elements of West Coast Micro-Brew and Belgian Abbey, this will find fans of both traditions of brewing. Like Monk’s own bands...This is a great combo!

To me, a perfect beer. It does no wrong. I need to find more beers that come close to this. Never was a beer drinker til I tasted this. A sweet aroma, hints of banana and chocolate. Strong, but not too heavy. Indeed, a classic.

Poured from a 12 ounch bottle into a trappist glass. Reddish brown with a minimal tan head. Smell is sweet and malty with notes of caramel and pear. Taste is malty, sweet and crisp with white grape and citrus notes. Nice beer and extremely drinkable.

Wonderful flavor and enjoying it by the pool in Vegas. Easy drinking even with high abv. Will purchase at home for sure.
