A: BLACK, can't see any hues through it. Nice thick head that is off white and then settles to a thin film and a nice rim around the glass.

S: Coffee, chocolate, black cherries, some sour notes.

T: Some sourness present, strong coffee in the back of the pallet, smoky chocolate, cherries again.

M: Well carbonated for a "belgian stout". Medium-full body.

O: I just love the flavours of this beer. Some belgian notes are well present.

(Am finally getting around to posting my notes taken on the spot at a winter-beer festival in Brussels last December. The festival billed as the debut of the beer; perhaps it had more than one. And what was presented might have been more of a preview, as I gathered from later speaking with someone at Dupont, possibly it was not the final recipe for the commercial run. When I find it again in good tasting environment, I'll re-review. For what it's worth, here goes:) Poured from the keg perfectly black with just a ring of ivory foam. Aroma of coffee, pepper, some herbal spice like coriander, a toasty or caramelized bread note. Surprisingly little malt sweetness, rather burnt-tasting, rather un-Belgian but very welcome. Some coriander or grain of paradise in there, too, and hops sneaks in at the end. Slight astringency, definitely less chewy than the standard Belgian take on stout -- again, not necessarily a bad thing, and all the more quaffable for it.

Pours jet black with a light tan head. In the aroma, a light roast, a small caramel and coffee presence. In the taste, roasty, coffee to caramel like, with a toffee like sweetness. Quite smooth and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, note of coffee in the aftertaste. Nice coffee notes and sweetness of caramel and toffee, pleasant and nice to drink.

Nose-filling aroma has firm tones of charred wood and yeast with a hint of licorice. It pours a deep opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head. Smoky, malty flavor has tones of molasses, caramel and roast coffee with a licorice hint. Texture is a teensy on the thin side but strongly tingly. Overall, if not the best porter available, a worthy beer.

Pour is opaque black with a thin tan colored head. The nose is nice, dry and roasted malt, notes of coffee and light chocolate, with a light hop balance. The taste is equally as nice. Very roasty with notes of coffee. Some sweet hop profile in the finish balances. Creamy and soft body with strong carbonation and a dry finish. Deep roasted malt profile and nice balance.

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.

Dupont Monk's Stout

25oz bottle, corked and caged. Opens with a vigorous pop. Pours a clear, dark brown with a light head consisting of lots of really tiny bubbles. Aroma is strange, mineral, tart, sour, metallic. In the taste, much different than the nose, with a good dose of lush chocolate, malted milk, roast and coffee grounds. Well balanced, though there is little hop flavor, just mild leafy notes. More cocoa, coffee and toast. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, smooth and creamy, finishing slightly dry. Overall, I was quite surprised with this one, a really nice find. A Belgian stout with some character.

750mL (L11216A 10:22) into a tulip. Pours a deep coffee brown w/ a big mocha head that slowly settles to a dense pillow of foam.

Aroma is deep & complex. Chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, rich caramel malt.

Taste is equally interesting. Chocolate and coffee, toffee, figs/dates, a vague hint of spice. Maybe just a little too much going on here.

Mouthfeel is a little thin relative to the bold taste, which actually works well. Lively carbonation keeps it feeling light and crisp rather than sticky and syrupy, but it is a little prickly.

Overall an interesting, unique beer - sort of a cross between a Belgian dark and a porter. While I enjoyed it for what it was, it's not a beer I'd seek out again.
