Spencer Monk's Reserve (Quad)
« on: July 22, 2017, 11:20:57 PM »
I have been waiting for this for a long time.
It didn't disappoint.
It is a deep mahogany with a moderate tan head. The aroma is dominated by dried fruit. The flavor also has a lot of dried fruit and I specifically get dried cherry. Malt flavor is very prominent too, but not overly sweet. The finish is a firm but unobtrusive bitterness with only slight alcohol warmth. (10.2% ABV btw). This beer has that Belgian"digestibility" with malt sweetness well balanced by it's dryness and bitterness.
It was weird drinking this in July. I look forward to sipping it I. Front of the fire.

Yeah!  I can't wait to try some of that. I have had a few of their singles and they are quite good. Have yet to sample their Quad though. You got my mouth watering now.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I am just now trying this brew for the first time-one of the brews I bought for the holidays-and it puts to shame all the Christmas Ales I had. From now on, this will be my new holiday brew.

Brew and grow...
