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. Dark, almost black, with a thin brown head. The aroma is earthy, fruity (bananas) and has dominant milk chocolate aroma. The body is a little thin, but I like hint of sourness and bittersweet finish.

bleeng (1613) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2016
750 ml bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is a bit musty with no malty nose you would expect from a stout. Taste is not a stout, not a sour. A faint hint of Flemish brown. Thin body. Not sure what they’re trying to do here.

Ysok02 (623) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2016
Robe brune, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez agréable sur le café au lait, le chocolat, sur un fond épicé et fumé. Bouche à l’attaque crémeuse, belle note chocolatée, équilibre, finesse et élégance, Un stout de plaisir.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2016
Negra, espuma ocre muy abundante. Aroma marcado a café, con notas dulces. En boca es ligera de cuerpo y con gas abundante. Algo aguada. Sabor tostado, con predominio de café y caramelo.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle at home. Black with tan head. Sweet roasted malts, ground coffee, pure cocoa, licorice, melasse. Moderate sweet with moderate bitter, hint of salt, tart in its tail. Medium to full body. Dry burnt ashy finish, chocolatey aftertaste. Overall a bit watery and thin.

TtV (327) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Dark, black, little see through with red glow. Big, beige top. Metallic aroma, malts, hops. The taste is fresh, intense bitterness. Not expecting this from stout. The taste is also somewhat metallic.

ForlornHope (286) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours black in colour with a tan head. The aroma is slightly lactic with a rich roast aroma. Slightly sweet to start with some bitterness: perhaps not enough. Flavours of more roast malt and cocoa, and that slight lactic acidity again. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin. OK. I would have another as I think the lactic tones are interesting.

skortila (5002) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016

Vells (1241) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 22, 2015
Nice surprise. Quite complex for such a low ABV. Interesting changing roast level, dark choco, some smoke presence, dried fruits, dark fruits, bit berry like. Light sweetness with moderate bitterness and light tartness. Feels well balanced. Ofc not impressive as RIS, but for its own style very OK

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
330 ml bottle at Festibière de Québec 2015. A brownish black with short lived beige head. Aroma is chocolate, ash and burnt bread. Flavor is chocolate, coffee and belgian yeast. Finish is, surprisingly, somewhat tart, with a chocolaty bitterness. Lingering coffee. Medium body, average carbonation.
