Tynt Meadow is brewed by the monks at Mount Saint Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire. It is the first recognized trappist beer in England.
The beer’s heavy black hue makes it impossible to discern what kind of beer it is at first glance, and this is especially true when it is cold. The mystery is quickly though, a rich fruity aroma with notes of dark chocolate and licorice permeates the air as you inhale it. The beer has a robust body and a delicate balance between the flavors of dark chocolate, pepper, and fig. A warm, slightly sweet and dry aftertaste is left on the tongue as a result of this. This strong dark ale was introduced in 2018 and has an overall score of 97 on ratebeer, whilst it holds a score of 91 on beeradvocate. Need we say more? This is a sublime beer, perhaps the best trappist ale produced outside Belgium. Highly recommended.

What is Trappist beer
A beer must meet a number of criteria before it can be designated as Trappist. To be eligible, it must be brewed in close proximity to an abbey. To be legitimate, production must be carried out under the supervision of monks or nuns. Finally, any profits should be utilized to assist the needs of the monastic community. To put it another way, no commercial brewing will take place. Trappist breweries create just what they need in order to suit their demands.
