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.

BlackHaddock (4738) - Shropshire, - APR 9, 2012
33cl Bottle, best before Feb 2013, poured into a Westmalle chalice in Oct 2011. I have never seen a beer look rough in a Westmalle chalice, this didn’t let me down. Lovely dark body, pitch black until held under a strong ligh force when its deep ruby red hues shine though. The creamy looking head is a tan crown of foam that sticks to your upper lip like a fake moustache. The smell was of slightly charred malts that had been over roasted in a peat bog and began to crisp up. The taste a was of dry malted biscuits with most of the flavour removed. It didn’t taste right, something was missing: rich and creamy enough, but the zing had gone, no depth or physique to it what-so-ever. Wanted and expected a lot more from this Stout, not impressed at all. Looks good, but fails to deliver.

Sjohnh (408) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
For a stout, very Belgian. Dark, initially with a coffee coloured head, but not for long. Medium body and carb. Nose starts with sour cherries and finishes with chocolate. Taste also has red and black cherry. It’s beautifully fragrant, but it’s not a stout.

pours a gorgeous black with a light tan head. Not much on the nose but an oaky smoked taste with plum/raisin.

Zekada (411) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Pours a lightish black with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, licorice, some coffee. Taste is quiet bland, but has some sour features, not really nice. Palate is nice though, with a very fresh feeling. Overall a really boring stout. Doesn’t have anything exciting or tasteful to add.

33 cl systembolaget. Helt ok men hade kanske hoppats på mer av denna. Blev en trevlig fredagsöl.

Bottle. Deep amber color with a huge foamy beige head. Aroma of oak, vanilla and roasted malt. Dry taste, some bitterness. Medium body.
