Victory Golden Monkey

Victory Golden Monkey

There you are, an adventurer holding a golden idol glowing with an alcoholic energy. The monkey has 4 arms and can do the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" thing while at the same time playing the "you looked at the circle" game. Your sobriety stored in a dusty pouch. You weigh the pouch in your hand. Should be just enough to offset the weight of the idol in an attempt to keep the traps from springing. What will it be? A trap door to a spike-lined pit? Perhaps a giant blade that tries to decapitate you? Rolling boulder? Giant spider?

Okay...so let's not be over dramatic. But Victory gets it right again. This Belgian style tripel ale has the sweet exotic taste of a brew from faraway lands but it's brewed right here in the good old U.S. of A. Downingtown, PA, in fact. It's dynamite if you like tripel ales brewed in the Belgian style.

It might be the worst (but just maybe the best) tailgating beer of all time. Never finish the night with the Golden Monkey if you're already golden yourself. Actually, let's cut the crap and just make the words "Golden Monkey" into a verb; some examples may be: "I really Golden Monkeyed myself into that embarrassing situation" or "What are you doing tonight? I'll probably just watch a movie and Golden Monkey myself to sleep." It's every bit of 9.5% abv with a little extra mystical sump'n sump'n that allows for some out of body experiences. A little too delicious if you ask me.

I also love the Monkey.
Great tasting and easy drinking for a high ABV ale.
