COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer already brewed in the 1950ís 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 Monkís Stout, both at 5.2% abv. One was dry and roasty, and another is said to be a little more rounded. Monkís Stout is available in 33cl bottles and 20 liter kegs in Belgium.

BlackHaddock (5637) - 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 didnít 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 didnít 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.

bjakk (669) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - APR 21, 2016
Red, clear yellow foam. Mild sour, hay, wet wool in the aroma. Sweet, brown sugar, with sweet really mildly burned aftertaste. High in carbon.

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by Marduk, thanks! BB 2017. Pours brown with tan head. Not without the promised coffee and chocolate characteristics, also nutty, but itís unfortunately rather ashy too, plus what Iíd describe as metallic and earthy... On the palate itís a bit too watery, and the carbonation is basically flat. I donít know, I donít think Iíd want to finish the whole bottle.

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
330ml bottle (Alus Tirgus, Bergi). Very dark brown color. Huge size, tan head, stays. Metallic, yeast, faint roast, sweet and nutty in aroma. Nutty roast, spicy, ashy, bit of tobacco in taste. Herbal hops and ashy in aftertaste. Maybe some smoked peat too. Medium body. Soft fizz and quite easy to drink.

Rask0lnikov (433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
Brown liquid. Thin layer of white froth. Coffee, caramel and hints of smoke in the aroma. Smoky beginning. Hints of coffee and caramel. Bit watery in the end. Coffeebeans and smoke again. Rather medium bodied, low carbonated beer. At first seemed too smoky. But not enough body for the stout.

barnyinbarna (12) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2016
Toffee-metallic aroma at first, and tastes like it smells. The initial flavour is also toffee-ish and the finish is slightly metallic. Itís a good-looking stout in a well-designed bottle - in the glass itís very dark brown with a light brown head. Great creamy, slightly thick mouthfeel - my favourite thing about this beer. For me, the flavour was a bit too sweet.
