Be Mine, a Belgian-style Quadrupel by Barrel of Monks Brewing

Share This Review

Be Mine is a Belgian-style Quadrupel brewed by Barrel of Monks Brewing, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a cloudy chestnut brown that glows a garnet hue at the sides of the glass. An inch-thick cap of dense tan-colored foam persists briefly. A thin ring of fine bubbles gathers around the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is initially bright with a scent of tart cherry. Hints of cocoa, nut, and grain begin to appear shortly thereafter. Drying booze also appears as the beer warms.

Flavor

Dark fruits of raisin and prune meet dark chocolate and rise to a balancing finish of tart cherries and alcohol. More dark fruit rounds out the finish.

Mouthfeel

The feel is dry and lively with a medium-full body and high carbonation. The draw is smooth, becoming slightly prickly on the backend.

Overall

Its aroma is complex and shifting. The feel is spot on. The palate is rich and dark sweetness is balanced superbly with the tart cherries and alcohol. Its high ABV is managed quite well. Its appearance could be better but that’s nitpicking. Be Mine is decadent, delicious, and just so easy to drink. It’s the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day or at any other time during the winter.
