COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monk’s Blood pays homage to the monks of Belgium’s monasteries who have been brewing some of the world’s great beer for centuries. During times of fasting, the monks subsist solely on beer, which they refer to as “liquid bread”. Beer, quite literally, is in their blood. The most sublime of the monk’s premium brews is dark like blood, rich and nourishing. 21st Amendment founders Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan traveled to Belgium to develop the recipe for this special beer, visiting small, traditional breweries in the hop fields of west Flanders, not far from the famous Trappist abbey of Westvleteren. Monk’s Blood is designed to pair beautifully with rich winter stews, creamy cheeses, unctuous desserts or just by itself, in a Belgian tulip glass, with a good book by the fire.

Pours a dark cloudy amber with thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing. Sweet,dark, fruity aroma. Tastes of dark fruit/figs. Notes of bread, vanilla, and cinnamon evident. Medium mouthfeel. Alcohol is very present. Overall, this is a nice, warming beer for a chilly night by the fire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour from a can is a very dark amber with a nice clarity. Aroma is nice roasted malt with hints of raisins and brown sugar. Taste is sweet and malty with a brown sugar and date. Leaves a clean finish.

Nice malty beer. Malty flavours, grain, and caramel. Long lasting flavour, I miss some balance from the hops.

Perhaps my score is related to my expectations being so low...at any rate, I was totally impressed with this beautiful, rich, full-bodied ale. from nose to finish, this is a pleasure to drink. It has the expected Belgian yeast with a sweet bread character that finishes with a very light hop character.

Not much of an aroma for such a powerful tasting beer. Strong vanilla and oak flavors compliment the Belgian yeast. Full palate. Overall a very unique Belgian Strong Ale.

12 oz can pours very dark brown. Sweet malty and a little fruity aromas. Taste is superb! Malt, raisins, oak, brown bread, and some hints of spice makes this my favorite American-Belgian beer. WOW! and it came from a can.

Pours a beautiful dark copper/slight red with a nice foamy head that disappears not long after the pour. Aroma smells much more of alcohol than I would expect. All of the advertised flavors come through beautifully without masking the characteristics of a true-blooded belgian.
