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.

Flaska från SB. Lätt svart färg med generös luftig smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av rökta charkuterier och svart malt. Lätt, torr och frisk kropp. Ganska vattnig smak av svart malt, kaffe, kavring och en lätt touch av rök. Torr avslutning.

SaintMatty (5779) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
330ml Bottle - Black with a foamy head. Roasted and smoked malts, cocoa and a hint of coffee in the aroma. Roasted and faintly sweet taste with notes of coffee, liquorice, coconut and some milky notes. Enjoyable and it’s always good to see Belgian beers at a more sessionable strength.

330ml bottle. Pitch black with tall, airy rapidly vanishing light brown - tan white head. Sweet fruity aroma with burnt and roasted tones as well as some Belgian yeast. Thin roasted aroma with some notes of Belgian yeast. Little too thin but overall decent Belgian style stout.

Not much aroma, some yeast.. Pours dark with thick head. Very burnt taste, bitter and somewhat sharp, fizzy with bitter finish. Ok not great

330ml bottle from Cornelius. Pours black with a massive beige head. Aromas of liquorice, dark sugar, earthy coffee. Taste is more of the same, light spicy linger. Dry finish.

olsvammel (3885) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Herbal and yeasty smell. Similar taste at first but then I get some dark malts and roasted flavours. However the roasted and dark malts aren’t very dominant. Feels very belgian. Not overly exciting but drinkable.

Bottle from Cornelius. Dark brown body with a medium beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of creamy chocolate, charred wood, stewed apple and coffee grounds. Flavour of tangy apple, roasted malt, soft spices and earth. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Very fizzy. An unusual Stout - light and tangy.
