The inspiration for this beer’s name—previously, La Maitresse du Moine—is the beer itself. Its deep, intense flavors inspired the concept of a monk that seeks solace and satisfaction from the sensory pleasure and mind-provoking effects of this liquid temptress.

Mesmerizing Monk’s Mistress seduces your senses at first sip. Its daunting beauty and intriguing flavor fully captivate your attention. Belgian yeast adds character and complexity. We invite you to give in to this little bit of “heaven on earth”.

While Monk’s Mistress Special Dark Ale accompanies a wide variety of dishes, it is also a lovely and engaging beer to keep you company.

Submit. Surrender. Succumb.

mathieuc (3907) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Pours a dark brown with an offwhite head that offers nice lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits and alcohol, quite close to the real thing I think. Taste is of molasse, raisins and brown sugar. Booze is present throughout but it is not disturbing. Body was medium-full and sticky. A nice classic quad!

Bulk_Carrier (5934) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JAN 2, 2014
The appearance is dark brown mostly close to black colored body with a slim half finger white foamy head, no lacing; the aroma has spicy Belgian yeast up front with toasted malty notes and dark fruit, some cinnamon comes to play more so as it warms; the taste is bready yet sweet and also somewhat spicy; spicy aftertaste and finish; its fairly easy on the palate but actually more of a sipper to me; overall - this is a pretty good Belgian Strong ale that I would have again

Une bouteille de 22 onces.  La Maîtresse du Moine a une robe acajou et montre une coiffe solidement plantée.  Un fabuleux travail de la dentelle.  Ses parfums sont très denses et énigmatiques.  Son souffle chocolaté est indéniable.  Une mélasse fruitée s’installe avec allégresse.  Des noix mélangées rôties érotisent tous ses mouvements.  Sous mon nez, une banane flambe dans un alcool d’une grande délicatesse. Des épices, du cuir et de la réglisse drapent ses épaules. Des saveurs immensément larges.  Des malts richissimes qui s’imposent.  Des petits caramels foncés fondent sur mon palais.  Je goûte distinctivement à des feuilles de tabac épicé.  Des fruits secs et des noix explosent sur ma langue tandis que des houblons peuvent facilement se confondre avec une merveilleuse gnôle.  En bouche, son corps est dense et crémeux.  J’adore le lent travail de ses bulles : les saveurs s’étendent pendant de longues minutes.  En finale, cette Maîtresse qui roule dans mes yeux a une peau fruitée, bellement amère et chaleureusement aimable.  Une bière de très grande complexité.  Tout à fait fascinante.  Je dirais même plus : superbe.
