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.

BlackHaddock (7106) - Shropshire, - APR 9, 2012
33cl Bottle, best before Feb 2013, poured into a Westmalle chalice in Oct 2011. I have never seen a beer look rough in a Westmalle chalice, this didn’t let me down. Lovely dark body, pitch black until held under a strong ligh force when its deep ruby red hues shine though. The creamy looking head is a tan crown of foam that sticks to your upper lip like a fake moustache. The smell was of slightly charred malts that had been over roasted in a peat bog and began to crisp up. The taste a was of dry malted biscuits with most of the flavour removed. It didn’t taste right, something was missing: rich and creamy enough, but the zing had gone, no depth or physique to it what-so-ever. Wanted and expected a lot more from this Stout, not impressed at all. Looks good, but fails to deliver.

ardeo (369) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2017
Bouteille. Noire à reflets et forte mousse à grosses bulles. Nez : rôti, caramel, fruits noirs, raisin. Bouche : effervescente en diable, fumée, fruits noirs/secs. Finale sèche et légère amertume. Rien de transcendant.

Syfher (407) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2017
Bottle of 33cl, in a Pint glass; from the fridge. Beautiful dark brown colour, great stout aroma. Then... no taste. The state is really"stout", but like a mix between a stout and a pils. No aftertaste.

I bought this bottle at Bierhandlung in Freiburg am Brisgau. I drank it at home, relax before to sleep. In my opinion, it is a correct stout but it is not extraordinary. The color is black, not so creamy for the style, white and brown foam, average carbonation. The taste is a bit sour for a stout, some roasted malt, coffee, small hint of vanilla, a bit watery, it could have a bit more character for the style. The taste is constant during all the time that you drink it.

Towey1989 (2574) - 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 (431) - 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 (2330) - 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.

Finn (7038) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2017
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 (1101) - 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.
