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.

Black pour with a huge khaki head. A bit acidic on the nose. Some chocolate and a lot of roasted malt. A mild ash note, some spice, and a light herbal quality. Some coffee and a hint of yeast. There’s a mild burnt sugar and licorice sweetness to the palate. Tons of roasted malt and coffee. Quite acidic, some dark chocolate, and the same light herbal note.

20-01-2018; bottle; drank in Voss, Norway (bought at Saveur Bière). The looks of the beer are nice. The beer is really foamy. A thick layer of light brown rough foam is easily poured. It is rough, but soft. Foam retention is rather high. The beer has a lovely dark ruby red/brown color. It is not so dark that it approaches black. For a stout, it is quite light. But, furthermore, is is quite nice. The smell of the beer is fine. It is quite mild for a stout. I smell some creamy malt aromas. They have some sweets, creamy aspects, some fruity notes, and some touches of roast. There is a hint of coffee and chocolate, but this is very mild. It is more imagination than that it is really there. There is a yeasty touch to, which is a bit spicy. Not bad, but for a stout a bit...weak. The taste is pretty much the same. It is a bit stronger though. Sweet malts, with a hint of coffee and chocolate, but now with clear smokey finish. There are some touches of liquorice to and some fruity notes. Hops give some simple floral notes and some bitterness. The beer is in balance, but it is a bit weak. Yeast gives a creamy touch. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium body, smooth and low carbonation. The finish of the beer is fine to...some dry hop notes, smoke, a woody toch and some coffee and chocolate malt touches. The malts are still a bit weak. So, all in all, a nice beer but for me a bit to weak.

La Monk's Stout Dupont est une bière qui a déjà été brassée dans les années 1950 mais qui est remis au goût du jour grâce à la grosse capacité de fermentation de la Brasserie Dupont. Versée dans un verre, elle dévoile une robe brune et foncée avec une fine mousse beige dégageant des arômes de malt grillé, de caramel, de chocolat et de houblon. En bouche, on y retrouve des saveurs douces et amères de levure, de malt grillé, de chocolat, de caramel et de bois. Son corps est moyen, sa carbonatation modérée et sa texture huileuse pour un final grillé. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Delirium. Clear dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma medium malty (roasted, burnt, coffee, licorice). Flavor light sweet, medium bitter, coffee, chocolate, ending dry. Light to medium body, quite flat.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2017 Mørkebrun med lysebrunt skum. Dejlig kaffearoma. Smagen er tilpas bitter og smager tydeligt af brændt malt. Tør afrunding.

On tap @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood. Pours clear dark red, with small white top. The scent is weak coffee, while the taste is heavier. The taste is also interrupted by way too much water, and turns into thin coffee.

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.

Dark color, deep Brown, clear. Big creamy beige head. Aroma of dark malts, classic stout feel, clean, light grainy. Light grassy hops. Taste sweetish a bit milk and coffee. Finish is woody, fairly dry. Classy stout, very clean.
