This is a beer already brewed in the 1950’s by Dupont Brasseries. As Dupont has extra fermentation capacity now, Olivier has the luxury of crafting some new brews, or re-creating some old specialties.There were two test versions of Monk’s Stout, both at 5.2% abv. One was dry and roasty, and another is said to be a little more rounded. Monk’s Stout is available in 33cl bottles and 20 liter kegs in Belgium.

Taboada (303) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 5, 2014
Tasted at tap on 04/06/2014. Black opaque colour with white-off head. Aroma dominates for roasted malts and coffee. Medium dry coffee taste. The problem is the intensity not as hard as it should be. Next one please!

Mad_Ferret (644) - SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2014
330ml bottle from Kihoskh @ home, 4/6-14. Best by: january 2015.
App: Black with clear brown edges, big erupting brown and a bit fizzy head. No lace.
Aroma: Roasty and ashy with a sweet bottom layer of burnt sugar, malty notes of dark bread, licorice and anise. There’s also some vague fruity notes and a yeasty gluey tone of wax cloth coming and going. It’s a belgian stout alright.
Taste: Pretty dry and roasty ashy with a pretty high bitterness of burnt pine needles and wood. There’s also a slight acidity to it reminding me of sour coffee. Vague fruity notes.
Palate: Medium bodied with soft carbonation and soft texture.
Overall: Yup, Belgian stout. And not a very elegant such. Dry, ashy and acidic and without any real depth. Pretty boring.

Bottle. Pours black with a dark tan head. Quit smooth, dry and lots of rosted malts.

Beachmaster (110) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Pours an inky blank, with a huge rocky khaki head which slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is dark roast malt, with a hint of sourness. Taste is all malt up front, with a surprisingly dry finish, with a touch of sourness. Very refreshing.

ABT_S54 (137) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Pours a thin black liquid with a bubbly, beige head. Dark red when held up to the light. Too much carbonation for and the mouthfeel is watery. Only taste that is evident of any note is coffee and maybe a hint of chocolate. Quite a poor example and to me a huge disappointment.

(Backlog) Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Cocoa, roasted and light tart fruit aromas. Flavor also is roasted, with chocolate and a touch of tart fruit.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2014
Det här var en lite annorlunda stout, ölen var avsevärt mycket syrligare än andra stout-öl. Kroppen var dock okej och balansen likaså.

Flaskan från ölbutikken frisk fruktig chocklad i aromen. Lätt i smaken, även här rätt frisk. Lätt i kroppen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vipinvelp (2122) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Black with decent lacing brown foam head. Aroma is muffled, but coffee is present. Taste is bitter coffee, some chocolate. Nice bitter aftertaste. (Brussels 201405)
