Sometimes it's difficult to find the right action figure to pair with a beer. Other times...

Merry Monks by Weyerbacher Brewing is a 9.3% ABV Belgian style tripel. I found it to be slightly boozy,  but less so than I'd expect from a beer this strong.  The most prominent flavor note to me is clove, pretty much overpowering everything else.   Not that I'm complaining!  I'm a fan of clove flavor in beers. The yeast is also noticeable as you drink it. Lots of it floating around, and you can taste it in every mouthful. I read this brew will continue to ferment if let it sit. Beers rarely last long in my house, but maybe I'll hide one of these from the six-pack and hope I stumble upon it some time in the future.  There's no strong aftertaste to speak of. The clove lingers, but mildly.  I enjoyed this one quit a bit, and would definitely grab it again.

And what monk could be merrier to include with this one than a B'omarr Monk? You might argue Friar Tuck, but you'd be wrong! Even a founding member of the Merry Men can't hold a candle to the B'omarr order. The B'omarr monks spend years pondering the wonders of the galaxy in an effort to achieve enlightenment. And if they succeed, they find their physical bodies were no longer necessary. So they'd have their brains surgically removed and placed into jars filled with a nutrient-rich liquid, where they could contemplate the galaxy for centuries, in a state of pure bliss.

And where they couldn't drink beer. Ever again.

Friar Tuck could drink all the beer he wanted. And did so legendarily.

I've made a terrible mistake...

Drink this if you like: Strong Belgian ales. High-ABV beers (non-IPA). Clove-forward beers. Contemplating the vast nothingness of eternal, infinite space.
