This is my second sampling of this new Town Hall brew, one pint had at the pub earlier today and this new taste comes from a growler, well warmed. I'm pouring it out into a favorite Belgian dubbel glass, and we see a clear, dark chestnut brown brew emerging in the vessel, topped with a fair and fizzy head, though woefully short-lived.
Aroma: bold and complex, taking some time to show itself, tossing out notes of nuts, chocolate, dark fruit, brandy, red wine, full of richness and dark delights.
As for taste, a good texture and prodigious mouthfeel, snappy hops at first, but dominated by malt, with the flavor getting ever fruitier on the palate. The flavor projects more with every tilt of the glass and gulp of the brew, while a tiny tartness emerges to check up on the sweetness. Rich, delicious, warm, nutty, with a continual tang on the tongue. Finish is just right, medium length, and lingering well past when the liquid leaves the mouth.
As I get further into it, I like this dubbel more and more, and what's not to like? Ample body, excellent taste, well-rounded flavor, and a lovely, lively kick to boot.
I'll be returning for more of this Brother Monk, you can be sure.
