21st Amendment Brewery Monks Blood

21st Amendment Brewery Monks Blood, 8.3% ABV purchased from the local Total Wine is a Belgian-style dark ale brewed in San Leandro California with cinnamon, Vanilla, oak chips, and dried figs. It has been a long while since I’ve had a beer from 21st Amendment Brewery. Monks Blood pours a deep brown with somewhat red edges and a two-finger tan khaki head with sweet candy sugar like aromas with some cinnamon and very light fig notes. Taste is much like a Belgian-style dark ale with a nice bit of sweetness upfront with nice light cinnamon and vanilla with a gracious licorice flavor and there is a bit of a strong nature to Monks Blood with a semi-sweet finish and a licorice aftertaste with a medium mouthfeel. Not a bad Belgian-style dark ale, I would say that 21st Amendment Brewery Monks Blood is a B-, the overall flavor of this beer is not as full as a true Belgian dark ale. But it’s otherwise good and something worth trying. Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
