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.

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

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 (1203) - 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.

Senap (483) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
En ganska snäll stout med en tydlig belgisk touch. Helt ok, men inte Duponts starkaste kort.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown, fluffy tan head that drops quickly. Mildly smoky aroma, roasted malt, grass, dark dried fruit, coca. Highly carbonated, fizzy mouthfeel, medium bodied. The taste is dark chocolate, roasted malt, ham.

fantti (796) - FINLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Pullo @ Systembolaget. Kaatuu lasiin mustana, vaaleanruskean vaahdon ollessa todella runsas, pienessä tulppaanissa jo 3 sormen paksuinen. Tuoksusta suorastaan puskee esiin paahteisuus, joka dominoi makua kovasti. Paahteen alta löytyy hieman belgimäisiä marjaisia ja tumman hedelmäisiä sävyjä, mutta ne ovat melko syvällä paahteen alla. Maussa on jälleen vahvaa paahteisuutta, mutta nyt marjaisuus on huomattavasti vahvempaa. Myös pippurista mausteisuutta on joukossa sekä lopussa hapanta omenaisutta. Suutuntuma on melko hiilihappoinen ja alkuun hyökkäävä. Sitten se tasaantuu ja on miellyttävä humaloinnin hieman myös tuntuessa. Hieman yksipuolinen stout, jossa paahde hallitsee ja peittää monen muun alleen. Belgivivahteita olisi voinut käyttää hieman rohkeammin.
