Monk's Stout has the appearance of a porter or dry stout, being pitch black with a quarter inch tan head. For the aroma, I picked up a lot of various dark fruit esters, and Belgian yeast. I found that the tast was very smoky, a bit 'roasted,' and tart. Once the beer sat for a little while, it began to give off some chocolately flavors too. Very light bodied and light in the mouth feel, this is something different. It did not quite taste like a Belgian or a Stout. Not sure if I would order this again other than to try and better understand or appreciate it.

Massively carbonated with a tightly knit khaki colored head. Dark brown in color and only a bit of light gets through. Brussels lacing. This beer is virtually odorless,but with a lot of effort I got a bit of dark malt. The flavor is a bit on the sweet dark malty side. Perhaps a bit of powdered cocoa in the mix. The mouth is creamy and dry.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/27/2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy tan head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Slight amount of earthy roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly chalky/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Belgian stout. Good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A unique and pleasantly enjoyable offering.

3.59/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours pitch black with a big, light tan, quickly dropping head, leaving nice lacing.

Aroma: coffee and roasted malts with some fruit-like, fresh aroma in the back and perhaps some forest notes. Subtle, yet very pleasant.

Taste: a bit sour, malty. There's a lot of roastiness and hint of coffee. Mildly bitter. Basically a typical stout with nothing much going on.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation. Would be better with softer carbonation.

Overall: Highly drinkable, but I wouldn't drink more than one bottle. it's a typical stout. It could be more bitter and less carbonated. Good, but not great.
