Two Blind Monks

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Most of you have probably never heard of Boaks Beer even if you live in New Jersey where it is brewed.  Boaks is about a small as a brewery can get.  The owner, brewmaster, book keepers, sales rep and distributer is Brain Boak.  Ahhh… but, the wonderful thing about the craft beer industry, big does not mean better. Boaks beer has a lineup of four beers Abbey Brown, Double BW, Monster Mash, and Two Blind Monks.  Before I get into the Review of Two Blind Monks, if you find a bottle of Monster Mash Russian Imperial Stout, buy 2, drink one same another for a year or 2.boaks_dubbel2

Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

I was looking at my Beer Cellar, while I have many beers that can age, not all can or should.  As I was reviewing my list I found a couple that I had not reviewed which have been in my cellar for a while.  I buy beer that I want to drink or try, sometimes things get pushed to the back. Tonight the Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale gets pushed back to the front of the line.  The Corsendonk is a Belgian style Dubbel, which tend to be malty, moderate to highly carbonated, low hop profile and may have a caramel sweetness.
