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.

fishonmyplane (486) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pretty basic, middle of the road stout. Smooth. Not much roasted malt, or chocolate, or really anything that would make it more memorable. OK but forgettable.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Moderate roast malt nose, with berries and dark fruits. Dark brown, with a thin skim of head and thick lace. Moderate chocolate, thin dark fruits, nutty notes, finish is roast with a small yeast bite. Medium body. A mild little stout, with lots of fruitiness. Okay. I want to like it... more than I actually do.
