3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle into my Monday Night Brewing snifter. Really nice looking beer - dark amber with a pillowy off-white head - it disipates to a thin cap and leaves minimal spotchy lacing. Aroma is malt, belgian yeast, grass, dried fruit and spice. Taste starts sweet and a little bitey and then a peppery/clove spice takes over and lingers on the palate. Dried fruit, malt, pine dominate the flavors. Overall, its a decent beer - to me it seemed like I was tasting two separate beers, this one didnít blend seemlessly for me.

Pours a carmel color with a short head. Doughy aromas, alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied, has a slight bitter finish. Pretty tasty for how strong it is 9.6%.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a brownish orange color reminiscent of urine the morning after a long night of drinking with little to no head.
S- The smell punches you in the face with awesomeness. Tons of pine, orange zest, light fruit and spicy belgian yeast undertones.
T- Whoa! An extremely strange combo that I think works very well. Starts off like a typical DIPA with a wave of piny hops and a strong bready malt backbone but is immediately rounded off with spicy belgian blonde characteristics and ends very smooth with little to no hop bitterness. Rarely do I taste a beer that really tastes much different than anything iíve ever had but this one did just that.
M- Thick with medium carbonation.
D- This was an extremely interesting brew to wrap your head around. It definitely isnít an everyday beer but if you are looking to enjoy something new and different pick up a bottle and you wonít be disappointed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle---candy orange color with a small head and no real lacing. Aroma is fruity, mostly mandarin, of course, I just had a mandarin so I could be influenced there. Toss in some soapy aroma as the drink warms. Sticky sweet flavor of light hops with some yeast. Catching a warm alcohol finish. Appalachian Vinter.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Combination of two of my favorite styles and a very interesting take it is. A one finger head and a light amber color are followed by a smooth and hoppy finish. More to come.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear darkish golden with a thin laceful white head. Nose is sweet and quasi earthy with a semi-fruity/semi-bubblegumy Belgo yeast tone. Taste is sweet with some earthy pale toffee notes, tangerine-esque yeast esters, dough, and a soft sweet pale ending. Not shabby, but forgettable.

Labelled as Monks Revenge.
Aroma us apricot, orange, yeast, mold. Look is cloudy yellow-orange. Small head, but creamy looking....lasting. a touch of vinegar. Some Wang, but the sweet fruitiness and creamyness keep it pleasant. Medium carbonation.
A nice Belgian.

Monks revenge is a great combo beer. Combining Belgian and IPA good appearance and aroma with layers of flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours hazy amber with slight off white head. Aroma of slight hops and yeast/bread. Taste of initial bitterness that quickly gives way to yeast. Different/interesting.

12oz bottle served in a snifter. Good double IPA, not as interesting as other Terrapin beers, but still good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a beautiful copper orange color. Aroma is citrus pine, pineapple, pepper, Belgian yeast, some malty sweetness. Taste falls short. Malt notes fight with the Belgian notes which for with the hop bitterness. Notes from the nose are there on all fronts, but too disjointed to truly enjoy. Well crafted though, alcohol stays hidden/blends in.
