COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2014
Rerun of a sweet stout dating back to a time when the style was still very popular in Belgium - now it is as good as forgotten here. Thin, beige, creamy head, near black colour with bronze hue. Aroma of coffee, sherry, red berries, bitter chocolate, hay, toasted bread; candied fruits in the taste, yeasty, chocolate maltiness, toasted with a mild roasted bitterness in the end. Not nearly as sweet as this genre of stouts usually were / are, but very interesting - it’s a Dupont beer after all, so I hadn’t expected anything less.

BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. Thanks! Look: almost black with some faint ruby highlights, big beige head with good retention. Aroma: black malts, toasty, a little barnyardy, sheep cheese. When it warms up, you get a bit ore sweetness and even some chocolate. Some fresh cut pumpkin too. Taste: roasty, light sweetness and coffee. Bretty and green fruit acid „spice”. The finish is moderately bitter with some charcoal.

Bottle. Black with a pillowy tan head. The aroma has notes of fruit, some roasted malt, chocolate malt, mash tun, and yeast. The flavour is more fruity, a little dark malt, a slightly ashy note, not much going on.

Bozo_skeleton (570) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 23, 2014
Noire collet moyen de grosses bulles. Aromes bien marqué de chocolat et autre malt torréfiés. En bouche c’est plus le café qui ressort. Malheureusement servie trop fraiche je ne peux pas tout ressentir. Final long et amer.

adasko (525) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 18, 2014
It has awesome aroma of coffee, dark tanned malts and delicate tiny sour note. It’s completely dark, non-transparent, with big head. In taste it also has a lot of coffee with very long aftertaste. Has a small body which ends very quickly. But it leaves super pleasant bitterness which gives this great mouth feel.

Ik ben sowieso al geen stout-liefhebber en dit was niet anders. Niet mijn ding.
