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.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 The aroma of coffee is huge when you take a whiff. On the second take, the smell of chocolate is noted. Notes of vanilla waft to your nose as you keep drinking. The flavor of black coffee packs a lot of punch. It is almost as if I am drinking coffee instead of a beer. As you get used to the coffee, the taste of dark chocolate is felt. Roasted malt adds to the envelope of the major ingredients to this brew. The presence of toffee is raw, but faint. Once you notice it, it feels as if you have a mouthful of it. The yeast strain used is Belgian. The yeast comes across earthy and yields some spice in the finish. A hint of red cherries are upon your palette, but are easily noted in the finish. The quality of the water is exemplary. The water creates a very easy drink to this stout style. As you experience the water, the accent of vanilla beans is parted and adds its texture to the coffee and chocolate. Monk's Stout DuPont is an archival beer brewed in the late 1950s and still with us today. Stylized as a British Stout, this drink imparts a watery take on the stout style. The finish yields the yeast spice and dark chocolate bitterness. On the other hand, the finish is very watery. Alcohol is 5.25% abv and is nondescript as the elements of the beer overwhelm your taste buds instead. There is more to this beer than we think. Listen to what your taste buds are telling you and you will experience more than the roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee.

Bottle from Terre De Boissons, Centre Commercial Cite Europe, Calais, France. Dark brown-black with a thick white head of foam. It has a slight tart red fruity flavour followed by roasted coffee and oak on the bitter-sweet dried fruit finish. Very good.

nathanvc (640) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle from a Carrefour in Bruges. Pours hazy black with a small, tan head. Smells of toasted bread. The aroma contains (slightly burnt) toasted bread, smoke, dark chocolate, even tobacco. It tastes very light sweet and light to medium bitter with a toasty, smoky finish. Medium body, slick/watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Solid, but I can’t be too enthusiastic about it.

Bottle from Carre four Brugge. Coca-cola with xl head. Some fruity, fizzy, mild bitterness.

Versée bien brune sans trouble avec une mousse beige assez épaisse. Dès qu’on pose le nez au dessus du verre, pas de doute, c’est bien un Stout ! Le nez est impressionnant sur le cacao amer, le café à la Turc, les malts rôtis et leurs notes de pruneau, de bois fumé, de figue et de banane séchées, de datte, de résine, de cuir, de caramel, de sirop d’érable, de cassonade. Le froment apporte une petite touche gourmande supplémentaire rien qu’au nez avec des notes de crêpe Bretonne. Vraiment un excellent nez de Stout, tout ce qu’on cherche sur ce type de bière ! En bouche, carbonatation moyenne, alcool simple avec 5.2% qui font juste le job sans chichi, texture ronde, corps moyen sans trop de mâche mais pas sur l’eau pour autant, belles levures à l’attaque avec leurs notes boisées mais surtout, bonne amertume qui monte lentement en puissance sur les gorgées. Assez peu de sucres sur ce breuvage, donc on a la pleine expression des houblons amerisants en plus des malts torréfiés. Le côté crêpe Bretonne est pertinent en bouche, il ne manque plus que le jambon, l’œuf et le fromage ! Le final est sur l’amertume, avec une pointe d’astringence au palet et les céréales mi-rôties mi-crues sur les papilles, avec une belle longueur. Pour ma part, il me manquera la petite pointe gourmande qu’un alcool et des esters plus solides auraient sans doute amené en rehaussant les saveurs. Mais ne boudons pas notre plaisir, c’est un superbe Stout dont le seul défaut aura de ne pas être impérial... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

Gedronken met Mitchell bij Olivier, simpele stout, weinig diepgang, weinig romigheid, weinig koolzuur, geur is zoet en fruitig, smaak is droog en koffie- achtig, kan er verder niet veel over zeggen ook een beetje verstopte neus
