Imperial Monk

Imperial Monk - 2021 Autumn Seasonal

Our big & chewy autumn seasonal is back.

Released as a Red Strong Ale and brewed thiccer than a snicker, heavy like a chevy, come on lil’ monk let us rub up on dat belly.

Aroma
Light toast, heavy caramel and tobacco. After warming in the glass, some notes of liquorice and raisin. Powerful retro-nasal aroma.

Taste
Our brewers used a specialty Scottish malt. This gives the Imperial Monk foundation of complexity prior to its intense caramel malt bill. A thick mash and intense caramel malt additions establish an acute, enjoyable caramel complexity.

Mouthfeel
Intense, immediate covering of the tongue with caramel malt ink. Fullness of flavour and a fullness in texture. Bitterness is high but overshadowed by the huge malt sweetness and profile.

Brewers Notes: This is a thinker’s beer.  It is said that malt is the soul of beer and for the Imperial Monk, this was the focus of our efforts.  In an ocean of high-octane American IPA’s this was our chance to showcase the amazing tools given to us by our Maltsters.  Various malts across the kilning/roasting spectra imparts the Imperial Monk with a multifaceted, layered malt complexity, giving this goblet swilling red goliath its character.
