I’m kinda crazy and randomly made the three hour drive home to Johnstown for one night to hang out and catch up with my friend Lisa who is in the process of planning her wedding in which I will be a bridesmaid!
So of course we met up at Tulune’s South Side Saloon for some beers!
I started off with a Unibroue Chambly Noire by Unibroue of Quebec, Canada at 6.2% abv.
It was lighter than I remembered, vanilla, molassas, dark and fruity, yeasty bread, lightly peppery, and slightly tart.
Next, I had to try it because it came in a can, but looked half decent. Monk’s Blood by 21st Amendment Brewery out of San Francisco, CA at 8.3% abv.
It came from a can but was better than expected! A bit more hops than a traditional Belgian Strong Dark Ale would have. Its also a bit phenolic, sugary raising, medium mouthfeel. Not bad.
We were finally joined by Cindy and the boys! Cheers!
