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.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 31, 2013
750ml bottle. Strongly roasty malt aroma, some dark chocolate, espresso and faint prune, just lots of roast to be found here. Dark brown-black color, with a lightly foamy, uneven head, and some dark brown highlights around the edges of the glass. Flavor is strongly roasty and coffeeish, with semi-sweet chocolate, faintly peppery yeast spice, moderate bitterness and drying at the finish. Effervescent and fairly light on the palate, body is medium. Pretty tasty overall. Very roasty beer.

Pitch black, thin brown head dropping really fast. Modest chocolate aroma, bit empty, some roasted malts. Taste is chocolate and cocoa, also mild. Thin body, lively carbonation. Bitter, slightly fruity finish. Could be better. //Craft Room

From the corked, caged dark green 750 ml bottle. Kind of dusty on the store shelf but it was not dated so I don’t know how long it had been there. The pour is brown with ruby red hues and a long lasting, fizzy tan head. Its best attribute was the way it looked. The aroma has a slightly sweet malt and funky yeast character and perhaps a touch of red grapes. Light to medium body but very acidic. Some malt sweetness in the taste but it was more like cooked vegetables with an acidic bitter finish. There are better Stouts out there.

29-10-2015, 33cl bottle at home. Appearance is black with huge off white head. Aroma is toasted malt. Taste is roasty, bitter with a medium length slightly astringent finish. Overall not really special.

tricksta_p (2406) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle at Les Berthom, Troyes. Aroma of dark malt, lots of cacao powder, hint of roast, some lactic notes, hint of coffee. Flavour is only slightly sweet with an above moderate coffee bitter finish. Rather dry but also a bit creamy. Body is light to medium. Light cacao Stout, drinkable but unimpressive.

diabel (1643) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2015

kapusil (885) - HUNGARY - OCT 19, 2015
0.33l bottle. Black body, huge and lasting light-brown head. Aroma of chocolate, cherry, blackberry and coffee with some funkyness. Taste of chocolate, blackberry, floral hops and orange zest. Light-medium bodied and quite easy to drink. Nice one.

cmacklin (510) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown, almost black with a huge, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Roasted malt aroma with caramel, dark fruit and dark chocolate. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, caramel and liquorice with a dry, mildly bitter, coffee finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Ok.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2015
Tap at Craft Beer Base Bud. Much nicer than I remember it being. Roasty. Bit of coffee, dark chocolate. Nice stuff. Little hoppiness. Bitter. Good stuff. Prefer it to when I had it in Belgium. Feels a little funky.

Drank 03-10 during the beergeeks @ struise day. Thanks Tijs for sharing this bottle before we re-entered the bus to continue our journey from de Bierhalle to Struise. An average stout. Not very special. Has a slight stout-like bitter, dry coffee-ish taste but all very mild/weak.
