Avery Brewing’s (Boulder, CO) Barrel Aged Series rolls on with the 22nd addition, 5 Monks.
This edition is described as bigger and bolder than a quad, a sextuple of sorts. To sound less profane they went another way with the description. This bigger than life quadrupel is brewed with turbinado sugar and dark Belgian candi sugar and aged in bourbon barrels.
So yeah, it’s MUCH bigger and bolder than a quad. But the term “sextuple” seems inappropriate alongside a congregation of monks – so quintupel it is!
Avery 5 Monks will be released in 12oz bottles in June, 2014.
