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.

Bottle at home. Black with tan head. Sweet roasted malts, ground coffee, pure cocoa, licorice, melasse. Moderate sweet with moderate bitter, hint of salt, tart in its tail. Medium to full body. Dry burnt ashy finish, chocolatey aftertaste. Overall a bit watery and thin.

TtV (362) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Dark, black, little see through with red glow. Big, beige top. Metallic aroma, malts, hops. The taste is fresh, intense bitterness. Not expecting this from stout. The taste is also somewhat metallic.

ForlornHope (337) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours black in colour with a tan head. The aroma is slightly lactic with a rich roast aroma. Slightly sweet to start with some bitterness: perhaps not enough. Flavours of more roast malt and cocoa, and that slight lactic acidity again. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin. OK. I would have another as I think the lactic tones are interesting.

Vells (1322) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 22, 2015
Nice surprise. Quite complex for such a low ABV. Interesting changing roast level, dark choco, some smoke presence, dried fruits, dark fruits, bit berry like. Light sweetness with moderate bitterness and light tartness. Feels well balanced. Ofc not impressive as RIS, but for its own style very OK

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
330 ml bottle at Festibière de Québec 2015. A brownish black with short lived beige head. Aroma is chocolate, ash and burnt bread. Flavor is chocolate, coffee and belgian yeast. Finish is, surprisingly, somewhat tart, with a chocolaty bitterness. Lingering coffee. Medium body, average carbonation.

Little thin for me but pleasant rounded roasted flavours from this dark mahogany brew. Interesting idea to use saison dupont yeast for this stout, maybe a British influence in style?

HammerTroll (1119) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 22, 2015
Pitch black, thin brown head dropping really fast. Modest chocolate aroma, bit empty, some roasted malts. Taste is chocolate and cocoa, also mild. Thin body, lively carbonation. Bitter, slightly fruity finish. Could be better. //Craft Room

From the corked, caged dark green 750 ml bottle. Kind of dusty on the store shelf but it was not dated so I don’t know how long it had been there. The pour is brown with ruby red hues and a long lasting, fizzy tan head. Its best attribute was the way it looked. The aroma has a slightly sweet malt and funky yeast character and perhaps a touch of red grapes. Light to medium body but very acidic. Some malt sweetness in the taste but it was more like cooked vegetables with an acidic bitter finish. There are better Stouts out there.
