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.

draught in the brewery taproom and bottle in moeder lambic fontinas
dark brown, earthy, roasty, dry, light cocoa, yeast esters a little richer than a dry irish stout but less fruitiness than some Belgian stouts.

Hamirubi (405) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2015
33cl bottle at Vooruit, Ghent (4 IX 2015). This medium bodied Monk’s Stout is an easy drinker, a modest and even classic brew. If not, it could be a great introduction to stouts. The tan is pitch black, with a fine gloomy glare. The head is vivid and cassonade brown, yet swift. The nose has clear dark, strong coffee flavours, with a lovely roastness which comes back in the tasting. This taste is very solid. The mouthfeel is not that bitter - the bitterness comes at the end - and even dry, yet the body has a light sweetness (very subtle, though!), making it a rather mild stout. The roasted malts and yeasts give character to the brew, together with lots of creamy (?) dark chocolate and of course ristretto features. A classic, nicely balanced Belgian stout.

BeerViking (3609) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle at the brewery, near black with a lasting tan foam, coffee and funky nose, dry-roasty and bitter, a bit watery, with hints of earthy-herbal funk.

Malty aroma with applebutter, caramel and ristretto coffee also sour yeast. Dark with a little head. Sour yeasty and a bit watery. Roasted malts, coffee a bit of bbq and applebutter. Dry roasted malty aftertaste. Interesting

Bosskie (646) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2015
Pitch black, lots of yeast, weak head. Smell is subtle. Sour coffee bitterness with apples and raisins, hint of wood. Chocolate, liquorice. Taste is watery bitter leaning towards ash. Salty fizz, dry and crisp. Nice!

martin00sr (1983) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
Black with thick light beige head. Aroma has roasted and light fruity malt, faint notes of sourish sweet coffee. Light mouthfeel. Roasted flavour, a little fruity sweetness. Short, medium bitter finish. Dry and slightly acidic.

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Black with much tan foam. Aroma is tar, smoke and an interesting raisin and plummy fruitiness. Taste has those same elements. Feels like it has the yeast from their saison working away in there. Carb maybe a little high. Not as good as I hoped but still pretty decent.

En ganska snäll stout med en tydlig belgisk touch. Helt ok, men inte Duponts starkaste kort.
