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.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Draft. Poured black with a smallish off-white head. Aroma and flavor were mild roasted malt, a slight smokiness, apple cider, and a slight earthiness. Light body. Very drinkable.

Towey1989 (2463) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2017
UPDATED: APR 27, 2017 Bottle at Den Engels, Leek. Pours a deep brown to black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, some caramel and subtle dark fruits. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some dark fruits, slight nuttiness, a little caramel, a hint of biscuit and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A subtley tart, nifty, biscuity finish. Characteristics of a nutty, chocolatey stout. Lots of character but not what I’m used too. Very Belgian, interesting.

AssKicker (410) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 21, 2017
UPDATED: APR 22, 2017 Bue à la pression. Couleur noire, mousse tout à fait correcte, nez... heu... quelconque, on dirait une pils. En bouche c?est très léger, à peine torréfié mais surtout très fade et aqueux. Bref, débandade totale.

Mortlach (2302) - Rome, ITALY - APR 19, 2017
On tap @Brasserie 4:20 (Rome). Bruna scura, intensa, schiuma beige media e persistente. Al naso sentori di caffè, mela verde, leggero metallico. In bocca caffè, mela grattugiata, leggermente dolce all’attacco e amara nel finale. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Sgraziata, mal riuscita.

Fra fat på Delirium Cafe 9 Mar 17. Svart. Lavt skum med litt farge. Litt lacing. Forsiktig aroma av røstet malt. Smaken har et lite røykpreg. Tørr. Uvariert.

Arek (1086) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poand.
Czarne piwo z beżową, obfitą, gęstą, sztywną i trwałą pianą oraz lekko słodkawym, zdecydowanie palonym aromatem. W smaku wytrawne, zdecydowanie palone z łagodna i przyjemną goryczką na finiszu.

ozzatoadisback (145) - ITALY - JAN 31, 2017
Pours black with a dense and persistent slightly off-white head. Some lacing. Smell of gently roasted malts and light red fruit notes among a base of what is something in between butter and milk chocolate. Nice but not too vivid. Taste follows the aroma but is a little more intense. Overall it’s quite on the sweet side but a gentle roasted malts bitterness and hint of refreshing acidity are bringing enough balance. Light to medium body with light carbonation, it’s very easy, quick and slightly silky. A not too typical stout, expecially in being quite refreshing: Overall pretty enjoyable, though not too intense.

Rating #2396 - 2016.03.28 - Bottle 4 of 5 from the forgotten box. Pours a dark black with a rich tan brown head. Aroma is roasty, sweet cocoa, molasses. Sweet chocolate and light roasty, earthy bitterness with some light yeasty estery notes in the finish. Tasty.

Zilverenmaan (132) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2017
Schuimkraag mooi maar snel weer verdwenen. Zowel qua aroma als smaak redelijk scherp: eerder aangebrand dan koffie, dunnetjes, nogal eenzijdig ook. Mondgevoel dun, carbonatie overdadig. Hoedanook een zeer aangenaam en verfrissend bier met een bescheiden alcoholgehalte.
