An especially bright, hoppy take on Belgian IPA, Monk’s Revenge is another scary member of Terrapin’s Monster Beer Tour series. This particular version was aged in cabernet barrels from North Carolina’s Shelton Vineyards. Righteous.

Lightly hazy gold, white head. Tap at huna day. Odd mix of hops, winey notes, wet oak, caramel. Not harmonious.

Bottle at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting. Pours a clear orange with a tan head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has a lot of cabernet, light fruit, sweet grains. Flavor has a strong chardonnay note throughout with a bit of light fruit and sweet grains.

italarican (1425) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle generously shared at the RBWG grand tasting. The nose has moderate pickle notes, briny with oak. Flavor is heavy on barrel notes with a surprising slight chocolate malt feel. I can’t tell what the base beer was, as this tastes like barrel.

emacgee (3874) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Tasted at RRBF. Cloudy golden amber pour with no head. Nose is spruce-y with some cedary notes and a peppery Rcharacter. A resinous and piney flavor dominate. Weird, didn’t expect this.

Draft. Lots of stuff going on here. Too much in my opinion. The wine comes through nicely though. Interesting to try once or twice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2012
On tap at Barley’s, Asheville. Cloudy brownish copper. Smells extremely perfumey. I get whiskey and ...lavendar? Maybe? Taste is Lightly yeasty, with hints of red wine and some floral notes. Some resiny hops in the finish. Tasty, if a bit overbearing...

sample at Brewvival on 2/25/12. copper pour with a small white head. vinous nose with oak - really nice. med body with the cabernet barrel shining through with oak and light fruit notes. sweet vinous finish. this barrel treatment has completely altered the base beer giving it more wine notes and less Belgian yeast notes.
