Trappist beers tend to be named after the place in which the monastery is situated. Coming from Mount St Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire, ‘Tynt Meadow’ has been called to honour the link with the plot of land on which monastic life was refounded here in the Midlands almost two centuries ago. Being part of the great Trappist tradition, the monks at the abbey have chosen to produce a strong dark ale, but one with a clearly English character. Tynt Meadow is mahogany-coloured, with a subtle, warm red hue and a lasting beige head. Its aroma carries hints of dark chocolate, liquorice and rich fruit flavours. The beer is full-bodied, gently balancing the taste of dark chocolate, pepper and fig. It leaves a warm and dry finish on the palate. Tynt Meadow is brewed with English barley and hops, using an English strain of yeast. It is twice-fermented, with the first fermentation taking place in the tank, and the second in the bottle. It should be stored in a cool, dark, quiet place.
