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.

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.

Great Belgian stout with coffee and chocolate taste. Appropriate herbal and fruit/raisin hints.

Zekada (374) - 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.

Not my cup of tea! Reminds me a bit of hoegarden, but a bit darker. Somewhat unpleasant oaky finish.

TychoJames (363) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Brunsvart kulör med ljusbrunt skum. Jordig doft med lite kaffe. I smaken känns rostade malttoner med kaffe och bitter choklad. Aningen tunn och lite vattnig

Alusmamuts (722) - LATVIA - APR 1, 2015
Dark brown with nice medium creamy beige head. Sour and bitter well balanced taste, but certain lack of nuances. Nice roasted bitterness stays in the aftertaste.

Deep, dark brown with a dense head. Aroma is roasted coffee. Taste is smoked ham with a bit of coffee.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Svart vätska med ett stort ljust skum som lägger sig fort. Doftar lätt surt och sött, maltigt. Besk med humlekaraktär och torkad frukt. Lite blaskig i munnen men med en stadig beska. Annorlunda stout.
