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.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2016
Quite disappointed, considering on the hype to the moment I finally tried this historical one. Nice dark brown colour, not too dense, with a loose beige head. Lovely aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and tart berries. The flavour is less fruity, more dry, bitter, but what really puts me off is the incredible watery palate. That deserves a "1".

Franckg (1281) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB de 03/2017, semble avoir été embouteillée en 2015 (mars sûrement) donc vieillie 14 mois. Robe noire surmontée d’un gigantesque col de mousse beige onctueux qui ne cesse de grossir. Après un repos de 5 min, celui-ci se calme et laisse une épaisse dentelle. Arômes de malt grillé, eau citronnée, houblon gazonné, jus d’orange congelé trop dilué, un brin chocolaté. C’est très moyen, ça semble fade. En bouche, les craintes se réalisent. C’est effectivement fade. C’est surtout le mélange citron-orange-gazon qui domine (pour un stout, c’est spécial), un peu de malt et noisettes grillés, café, chocolat, terre. Finale brève et aqueuse. Texture légère et minérale, corps mince. Trop facile à boire pour un stout qui semblait à première vue être onctueuse. Grosse déception.

peponi (1527) - Hannover, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2016
Aroma: roasted malts and caramel, ashy. Appearance: deep brown color and beige head. Taste: low bitterness, ashy, roasted caramel, clear profile, dry. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, ashy finish. Overall: It tastes like a schwarzbier, so something went wrong.

bjakk (718) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - APR 21, 2016
Red, clear yellow foam. Mild sour, hay, wet wool in the aroma. Sweet, brown sugar, with sweet really mildly burned aftertaste. High in carbon.

Kauge (1620) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by Marduk, thanks! BB 2017. Pours brown with tan head. Not without the promised coffee and chocolate characteristics, also nutty, but it’s unfortunately rather ashy too, plus what I’d describe as metallic and earthy... On the palate it’s a bit too watery, and the carbonation is basically flat. I don’t know, I don’t think I’d want to finish the whole bottle.

Marduk (6442) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
330ml bottle (Alus Tirgus, Bergi). Very dark brown color. Huge size, tan head, stays. Metallic, yeast, faint roast, sweet and nutty in aroma. Nutty roast, spicy, ashy, bit of tobacco in taste. Herbal hops and ashy in aftertaste. Maybe some smoked peat too. Medium body. Soft fizz and quite easy to drink.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
Brown liquid. Thin layer of white froth. Coffee, caramel and hints of smoke in the aroma. Smoky beginning. Hints of coffee and caramel. Bit watery in the end. Coffeebeans and smoke again. Rather medium bodied, low carbonated beer. At first seemed too smoky. But not enough body for the stout.
