ACBF. Clear dark red brown beer. No real head. Softish palate, a little dry. Funky mildly sour brett with some raspberry like sour tartness. Finishes dry.
Bottle @ ACBF ’11. Aroma is brett with a faint touch of caramel and roasted malt. Flavour is light sweet malt, lavished with brett, yet in a very subtle and smooth way. olio (10290) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2011

Rated on 20110720.
Dark red colour with very small head. Aroma is sour with berries, some yeast and spices also. Flavour is sour berries, spices, earth and malts. Sour palate and somewhat exciting, but the alcohol comes through a bit too much.

Dark brown, thin tan ring around glass, hint of lacing
Aroma - Fruity sour, some alcohol, rather tart, dark fruity malts, no hops
Taste - Red fruits, bretty, sour lambicy notes but not too much, sweet dark malts, red wine, dark fruits, good if a bit muddled - I prefer the normal Monk’s Elixir to this
Palate - soft carb, full rich body. Finish as main flavour, sour, dab of acetic acid.
Overall - Interesting, rather good, but I prefer this with no brett....as a Quadrupel this one is no way among the best
375mL bottle, pours a murky dark amber brown with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out red wine barrels, noticeable brett, some dark fruits and a little candied sugar. Flavour brings out brett and red wine barrels upfront, caramel malts, and dark fruits. The brett gives it quite a wild character that surprisingly works well with the vinous and typically quad notes. Great stuff. sfhodense (4789) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, brett, redwine and dark fruit. Flavour is caramel, light brett, fark fruit and light redwine. Needs more complexity to be perfect. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2011
38cl, at 10.5%Vol, as Monk’s Elixir (Lagret på rødvinsfade med Brettanomyces), new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2011, thx to Jeppe!, complex brew, fruity/vinous and slightly sour/woody, not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, yet very expensive! erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Murky brown, tiny head. Light sour at first but disappearing. Next wood, caramel, leather and bread. Complex but taste disappoints a little though. Bit of smoke. Can’t be bothered by this. (At Borefts)
