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.

Deep black pour with a thick tan head. The aroma has a touch of roast and a fairly pronounced plummy sweetness. A little bit of licorice and some soft bitterness on the finish. Fairly dry on the palate with a bit of cocoa and roast. A moderate bit of tartness on the back but that is quite restrained. Interesting brew.

Flaska från systemet - unken doft. Kolsvart, inget skum, alldeles för tunn i kroppen. Något brändatoner och en avis sötma i smaken, ingen beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bortled from Systembolaget Black with a small, tan head. Spicy, yeasty aroma with tarry notes. Very high carbonation. Some sweetish liquorice in the flavour along with tar.

Very nice and well balanced Stout although I would have hoped for a more outspoken Stout by the Dupont brassery. Nevertheless I think it is quite an accomplishment to create this kind of aromatic stout with so little alcohol.

The aroma of fresh coffee and chocolate. The taste is of much coffee. Good bitterness that fills the mouth a weak moment. Tasty and easy to drink stout. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Flaska från SB. Lätt svart färg med generös luftig smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av rökta charkuterier och svart malt. Lätt, torr och frisk kropp. Ganska vattnig smak av svart malt, kaffe, kavring och en lätt touch av rök. Torr avslutning.

SaintMatty (5614) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
330ml Bottle - Black with a foamy head. Roasted and smoked malts, cocoa and a hint of coffee in the aroma. Roasted and faintly sweet taste with notes of coffee, liquorice, coconut and some milky notes. Enjoyable and it’s always good to see Belgian beers at a more sessionable strength.

330ml bottle. Pitch black with tall, airy rapidly vanishing light brown - tan white head. Sweet fruity aroma with burnt and roasted tones as well as some Belgian yeast. Thin roasted aroma with some notes of Belgian yeast. Little too thin but overall decent Belgian style stout.

Not much aroma, some yeast.. Pours dark with thick head. Very burnt taste, bitter and somewhat sharp, fizzy with bitter finish. Ok not great
