A Fitting Tribute to the Great Thelonious Monk

Brother Thelonious: Belgian Style Abbey Ale

Brother Thelonious

California’s North Coast Brewing came up with this this complex brown ale in conjunction with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz and they’ll make a donation to the school for every case sold — and as a tribute to the man himself. That means, drink good beerwhile contributing to music education.

This very tasty ale has a rich dark raspberry like color tone.  It smells sweet and very strong with small hints of molasses and spice. It is a delicious ale but to me is about as complex as the great Thelonious was in his brilliant musicianship.

With one sip, I get delicious hints of chocolate, while with other sips I get the comforting taste of nutmeg. I also get a barbecue type of smokiness. A magically delicious tribute to a musical icon, the ale is unique and one-of-a-kind.

Its a very strong ale coming in at 9% ABV.
Enjoy it while listening to some Monks Mood by the Brother Thelonious
