With the developing interest in Belgian abbey ales and the monasteries that brew them, its time to remind the world that here in the U.S., we have a Monk of our own. Jazz icon Thelonious Monk is the inspiration for North Coast Brewings new Belgian-style abbey ale called, appropriately enough, Brother Thelonious. The beer is being released in conjunction with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz (www.monkinstitute.org), and the brewery will make a contribution to the Institute for every case sold to support jazz education.
2013 vintage - 9.4% abv Like a Belgian Dark Strong Ale, the beer is rich and robust with an ABV of 9%. The package is a 750 ml bottle with a traditional cork and wire finish and features a label picturing the jazz master himself.

ALIBALI (1611) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 10, 2016
Sehr coole Idee dem Thelonious & dem Jazz im Allgemeinen ein Denkmal zu setzen. Tolles Etikett also. Aber, fast vorhersehbar, braucht sich auch der komplette Rest des Bieres nicht zu verstecken. Beeren, Kruter, Malz, Vollmundigkeit, Barley Wine Charakteristiken und und und ..... da wird viel geboten und ich wrde mich hier tatschlich mal ber eine groe Flasche freuen. Komplex & Fett !!!!! 355ml Flasche fr 1,50 Euro (einen Tag abgelaufen...Ich der Expensive Fox) aus den CRAFT BEER STORE HH. Bier 3/7.

Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of spicy malts, caramel, licorice and toffee. Flavor is sweet caramel malts, quite spicy bitter and with a huge body. Clearly an American beer, but very well made.

Turboninja (706) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2016
[email protected], from Heinens, Cleveland, USA. Strong, sweet aroma with cherry, plum and some alcohol. Dark red color with no/minimal naturally white head and clear liquid. Strong, balanced, not so sweet taste with berries, some plum and a hint of sweet malts. Medium taste spectrum and short aftertaste with sweet malts and a hint of plum. Medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, way too simple taste and a bit artificial. Aroma promised much more.
