One Monster Beer

The Brooklyn Brewery Monster Ale has become available in my area. I picked up two of these bad boys for my wife and I to try.

Brooklyn Monster Ale is a classic barley wine, a style of ale originally brewed by the butlers to the English and American aristocracy. It is brewed from three mashes of heirloom British malt and spiced with aromatic American Willamettem, Cascade and Fuggle hops.

All I can really say is “wow”. This is a really strong beer . . . The alcohol, at 11.8%, is almost overwhelming. This is definitely a sipping or desert beer. And sip is what I did when I consumed this. Poured into a sniffer, this monster ale pours a ruby red color with a very light head that disappears quickly. This ale will put a smile on your face and warm you during the Winter months. The Brooklyn Brewery truly has created a monster here.
