Beer: Two Blind Monks
Brewery: Boaks Beverage
Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Wine glass
Drinking Establishment: Kerensa’s kitchen
Primary Consumer: Kerensa
Sight: Muddy dark amber body with a thin beige head.
Scent: Deep, rich malts manifest into a butterscotch smell. Slight sweet cherry at the end.
Flavor: With all of the butterscotch and cherry aromas, I was hoping for a sweetness in this beer. However, the malt taste is overpowering. Finishes with a faint taste of fig and raisin.
Feel: Surprisingly thin body, but nice carbonation.
Concluding remarks: I’ve had the Two Blind Monks before, and enjoyed it. So I was looking forward to reacquainting myself with these two blind monks from New Jersey (Boaks Beverage is located in Pompton Lakes, NJ). However, the reunion wasn’t with the Two Awesome Blind Monks I once knew, but instead, Two Blind Monks Who Blindly Forgot to Add the Flava. People change over time, I understand. Maybe this bottle was old? Maybe my tastes have matured and are more discerning? Be it as it may, this beer is fine. I hate using the word “drinkable,” but it is drinkable. If you see it at your local beer store, support a local small business and pick it up.
