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 Delirium Hoppy Loft on 12th November 2012. Virtually black with a light tan head and spot lacing. Rich roast coffee aroma, with smokiness in background. Delectable roasts in mouth; cigar smoke and coffee. Roasty finish with smoke and delicate citrus. Zingy mouthfeel, a little less body than expected for a 5.2 stout, nevertheless full of flavour. I have taken into account how much better it would taste if NOT served at fridge temperature - it would do well at around 15C.

Geruch alkoholisch und ein paar Backpflaumen. Im Geschmack dann leer, kaum Mundgefühl. Kaum richtige Röstaromen. Seltsam bitter zum Schluss. Wenigstens stabiler Schaum...

StueyD (1285) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
An almost pitch black coloured beer with reddish tints and a thick mocha coloured head. A light roasted malt aroma, coffee beans, pumpernickel bread, and a background smokiness. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the nose, mild roasted malt flavours, bittersweet coffee, dark breads and smokey, with the addition of dark fruits and a hint of burnt sugar. The finish is long and with with a strong burnt sugar flavour. Tasted at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ZodiacM (170) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Helder bijna zwart bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. Ruikt naar gebrande mout, varamel, chocola. Smaakt naar gebrande mout, caramel, chocola en wat koffie. Helaas is de smaak wat slapjes, en blijft deze niet al te lang hangen. Voor een stout wat weinig body. De smaken zijn er wel, maar lijken wat verdunt. Meer voor beginnende stout-drinkers.

Très léger pour un stout. Le gout de torréfaction est trop faible. Arrière goût d’amertume qui reste longtemps.

Ulysse (207) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2014
Weak aroma. A bit on the smoky side. Really light stout. Rather watery. Overall rather weak for a stout.

bottle from the beergeek shop in prague. dark brown with a reluctant beige head; aroma of cocoa powder, old book cellar; some brown sugar sweetness; thin texture; light bitterness; seems to be lacking some guts
