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.

Belle couleur noire avec une mousse beige foncé. Bue à la pression, dans son verre (très joli il faut le signaler). Arômes de café et de chocolat bien présent mais un gros manque de corpulence m'a déçu. Le faible degré d'alcool explique peut être aussi cette impression.

Aroma is smoky with some toffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste is rich maltiness paired with some bitterness. The rich malt flavor does finish somewhat flat though. Appearance is a black body with beige head that retains moderately

Bottle - Dark Brown/Black in colour. Very Malty; roasty malts, coffee, chocolate. Fruity; dark fruits. Slightly spicy; peppery. Hoppy; some hop bitterness/sourness. Dry roast malty throughout. Very drinkable. Decent.

33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: black beer, nice stable beige head. NOSE: caramel, burned malts, rather sweet, chocolate, some coffee. TASTE: chocolate and burned malts. Some coffee aftertaste. Quite outspoken malty. Decent but not really balanced enough.

33 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy dark brown with a large tanned head. Aroma has some roast, malts, yeast and a little bit of chocolate. Taste has roast, some coffee, malts and a soft to medium bitterness. Medium body and over medium carbo.

A great sweet stout with an interesting taste. Nice malt. Mouthfeel is fairly light. Some bitterness in the finish. Pretty good.

Black foamalicous pour...my glass is literally overflowing right now. Aroma -lots of roasted malts, coffee, some lactose sweetness. Taste - bitter roast up front, slightly herbal, some black liquorice, fairly dry, lots of coffee like bitterness, very mellow but a nice amount of complexity. Really nice stout!

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Wow, what an incredible beer. Lots of earthy, nutty malts with huge cocoa-dusted coffee cake flavours swirling about the glass. Ok, it’s a touch fizzy and light but it’s no real criticism when a stout is as tasty and enjoyable as this.

Bottle. Black with a massive, foamy, beige head. Nose is super subdued caramel, mainly roasted malt. Taste is a little bit sweet, little bit bitter. Light body, thin texture, and quickly gone taste. Drinkable and nice enough, but too thin for a stout.

For what I paid for this beer, it is very disappointing... particularly for a class brewer like Dupont. Average at best...
