Really intense aromas of honey, vanilla, bourbon and ginger ale. Creamy body. You can definitely taste the alcohol. Then is a sour aftertaste. Boozy. I would just drink this if I wanted to get shitfaced and not have to drink liquor.

Loads of cedar on the nose, apples, nail polish remover. Dark orange with a mostly fading white head. Cedar and vanilla, alcohol, somewhat sour. Medium bodied. Strange, all over the place. Not my favorite, but definitely interesting...

Cask: Pours a hazy golden color with a thick fluffy head. Aroma is honey, vanilla, oak, spicy, and peppery hop finish. Flavor is honey, vanilla, some oak, and a bitter peppery spicy finish.

ChainGangGuy (4353) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Appearance: Highly hazed, dull, dark yellow body with a thinnish, wispy, off-white head. Smell: Sweet-scented, honeyish nose with plenty of tropical fruit notes and layered with fragrant toasted oak overtones. Taste: The initial maltiness is notably sweet, with a toothsome taste of honey candy. In come the rich tropical fruits flavors -- pineapple, grapefruit, and mango alongside a moderate amount of hop bitterness. Also, it’s at this time the toasted oak hits, yielding a spicy wood flavor. Finishes dry and bittersweet, with the residual sweetness and lingering bitterness fighting it out in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: There’s a rather pleasant showing of toasted oak in this beer, but it seems to have been gained at the loss of some of the original beer’s characteristics, particularly, the yeast phenolics.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2009
Firkin at brewery party. Aroma was very heavily dry hopped and oaky, with simcoe and citrus hops coming through heavily. Taste was also very hoppy, with plenty of oak coming through. Most of the belgian characteristics of the Monks Revenge were lost in the oak and dry-hop. This was a very nice version of the brew and my favorite of the anniversary. Body was smooth and finish was bitter. Very nice.
