Big Boss 'Monkey Bizz-Ness"
Big Boss Brewing Company - Raleigh, North Carolina USA
Farmhouse Ale (ABV 9%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13

The pour was a murky dark apricot orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a large puddled film and medium collar with good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of sweet biscuit malts and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of toffee, coriander, a somewhat pronounced fruity ester (apple, peach and banana) and a definite presence of alcohol.

The taste was extremely malty sweet with a note of toffee at first, and then proceeded to have a strong presence of yeast, a bit of fruitiness with a mildly spicy and bold alcohol finish. The flavor hung around for an average time with the yeasty fruitiness giving was to a strong sweet alcohol warming sensation...

Mouthfeel was just about medium in body and a tad syrupy in texture with a good lively carbonation.

Overall this was a pretty good brew with the strong yeast flavor and fruity esters blending very well with the sweet malts. However I feel the high ABV that is quite prominent in this brew, was a bit too much…
