COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vintage Monks is a blend of our Trappist inspired ales which have spent up to two years aging in oak wine barrels. Each barrel imparts unique flavors of red wine, tart fruits and lovely funk. The blended result is a wonderfully complex ale that is beautifully balanced. Pairs well with tangy cheeses, rich meats, fried foods and fruit-based desserts.

77ships (8973) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2016
Bomber sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. 2013 Vintage. Dark brown, little bubbles. Nose is very oxidized, vinegar, sour cherry, acidic, varnish, this aint right even for a Wine BA beer. Taste is flat glue, varnish, acid, nail poolish, rubbish cherry & unripe fruit. This clearly ainít right. Varnish & glue body. Surprised at this being currently a top 50 Abbey Dubbel on RB, maybe a bad bottle?

drpimento (3377) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2016
This kind of borders on a Flemish brown and itís very balanced. Neither too sweet nor tart, but quite drinkable.

kevinator (2150) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
This was more complex than I anticipated. Bready malt, Belgian spice, slight sour aroma. Oaky brown color with a decent head. This bottle had some age so some character may have changed a little. Medium to above-average weight with smoothness. Oak and slightly sour flavors but it didnít taste like infection. This was different than your standard Dubbel. Malty with little to no hops presence. Not a bad offering.

July 1st Sunday. Taste is medium sweet ripe fruits, yeasty fruity, oak, hints of wine. Nice.
