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.

ABT_S54 (148) - 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.

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

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)

I’m a big fan of Belgian stouts. They are very much their own creatures becaue the Belgian yeast lends such a distinct flavour to them all. They also, like this, tends to have a sourness alongside the bitter coffee and ashy flavour, very much present here. A lovely beer!

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours black with a strong tan head. Described to me at the store as a session stout and other very much lives up to that name. Aromas of coffee, licorice and bitter cocoa. Taste is very light, nothing that dominates the palate. A little watery. From the Dupont on the label I was expecting big flavours, but it is very much a drinkable stout.

Hanoi (395) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle: Nose is musty, slight sweet tone, Belgian yeast, slight licorice: underwhelming. Taste is licorice, dry Belgian yeast, earthiness and a little smoke in the finish. There is an almost brett like note in the middle with a little salt. Mouthfeel is much to thin. A confusing beer, which is not very good.

Bottled 12/04/14. A black beer with a lasting beige head. Quite a dry stout at first but then there’s some licorice and lactose. Seems like a salty edge too. pretty decent as you’d expect from Dupont.
