21st Amendment Brewery has released Monk's Blood, a dark Belgian style ale. It is the first limited release from the company who specializes in canned craft beer. The brew helps launch the new Insurrection Series of limited-edition four-packs from the company.
The beer was developed to honor the "liquid bread" Belgium's monks were rumored to have subsisted during times of fasting. At 8.3 percent, the beer is brewed with eight malts, Belgian candi sugar, cinnamon, vanilla bean, dried local figs and aged on oak.
