COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Monster Ale is a classic barley wine, a style of ale originally brewed by the butlers to the English and American aristocracy. It is brewed from three mashes of heirloom British malt and spiced with aromatic American Willamette, Cascade and Fuggle hops.

After four months of aging, it has a magnificent burnished copper color, an aroma redolent of sherry, citrusy hops and fruit, a soft, warming, complex palate, a spiritous finish, and a strength of 10.8%.

It is vivacious when young, but will age gracefully for many years, becoming more complex over time.

Food Matches

Brooklyn Monster Ale is a fine accompaniment to cheeses, ice cream, flourless cakes, crème brulee and good cigars.

This is truly one of my favorite barley wines. It is so very fruitful down to its very nature and being (as well with its taste). How could anyone ask for anything more satisfying? This is truly an all around beer with many complexities that lead one drinker, i.e. me, to be in astonishment. Double- Chocó is one thing on Brooklyn’s menu but watch out for the “Monster Ale- 2004." This is a high alcohol beer without the taste, of course, but it is original in character. Monster ale rates far higher than any other barely wine coming from the American land.
