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.

Pours very dark brown to black, one finger beige head, sticky.
Smells of dark roasted malts, caramel, coffee and forest nuts.
Surprisingly, there's a big tartness from beginning to end, vinegary, mixed with some lemon zest also, messing with the classic aromas, setting them in the back. Roasted dark malts, sure, with smokiness and mild caramel. Going to dark chocolate. Weak coffee (diluted), cocoa powder and a dry earthiness are classic to the stout recipe, but the weird sour cherries and low dark fruit (red grapes, plum) somehow don't fit. Spices are cinnamon, anise and hints of vanilla. Low hop presence, bitterness provided mostly by the roast.
Drinkable, sure, but too thin and crisp than expected.
Not really what i wanted, don't know for sure if it's "interesting" or just not well made.
