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.

brokensail (10738) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Black pour with a huge khaki head. A bit acidic on the nose. Some chocolate and a lot of roasted malt. A mild ash note, some spice, and a light herbal quality. Some coffee and a hint of yeast. There’s a mild burnt sugar and licorice sweetness to the palate. Tons of roasted malt and coffee. Quite acidic, some dark chocolate, and the same light herbal note.

adasko (247) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 18, 2014
It has awesome aroma of coffee, dark tanned malts and delicate tiny sour note. It’s completely dark, non-transparent, with big head. In taste it also has a lot of coffee with very long aftertaste. Has a small body which ends very quickly. But it leaves super pleasant bitterness which gives this great mouth feel.

Ik ben sowieso al geen stout-liefhebber en dit was niet anders. Niet mijn ding.

Holmen2 (781) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Black. Fine beige head and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, dark chocolate and coffee. Same in taste, and with lots of coffee balanced with a good bitterness. Long aftertaste, with roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and bitterness. Light mouthfeel, making the drinkability high. Complex and interesting.

Jorn69 (897) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen (25 DKK). Roasted malty and quite fruity with yeasty and light spicy notes, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry and bitter with fruity and roasted notes. Not much of a stout, but a nice beer anyway.

Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and crispy. Tangy mild dark malts, whisper of roast. Finishes crisp and dry. Simple crisp light stout.
