Clear brown colored beer with a tall tan colored head. Not very dark for a stout. Think dark Belgian ale and not Guinness.

Smells Sweet and of charred malt. Belgian yeast scent with smoke and coffee. Burnt toast and some faint fruity scents.

Starts out drier than it smells with a fair amount of char and smoke. There is some sweetness here so it is by no means bone dry. Clean after taste. Mild dry stout flavor without a lot of after taste.

Mouthfeel is dry and light and doesn't linger. Perfect for where you don't want the beer to be the star of a meal.

Overall it is better than the sum of its parts. A masterful beer from a master brewery.

Pours with towering, rocky beige head on black body. Nice smoky, peat taste, hints of molasses and chocolate. A very good effort at this style, indistinguishable from it’s Irish brethren. Well done!

Having seen the other ratings on this, I set lower expectations. Fortunately, they were wrong. This bottle had been sitting around Saveon for a while (years).

It pours with nice head. The aroma is almost a bit chocolaty, just through the malts ad yeast. This is where the taste goes too. All malty and yeasty, but not boozy.

The total experience is favorable- a nice Belgian stout that is not at all boozy. Recommended.

Brasserie Dupont – Monk’s Stout
English Stout – 5.2% - 330ml Bottling date unknown – Best Before 02.2015

Just noticed that the best before date on this bottle was 13 months ago, but being a bottle conditioned stout, that may not be a bad thing, it may well have smoothed out over time.

Appearance: Small hiss when cap cracked, then a gentle pour into a ½ pint glass had to be in stages due to uncontrollable off white head that did dissipate quickly. Noisey carbonation. Looks a bit like a coke-float (coca-cola with ice cream). Nice lacing.

Aroma: Coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malt – pretty standard stout aromas backed up by a hint of spicy yeast.

Taste: Coffee, chocolate and roasted malt, aroma translates very well here. Not as bitter as some other stouts I’ve had of late – could be due to the age.

Mouthfeel: Thin – medium body.

Overall: I’m not a huge stout fan but this is palatable, not particularly exciting though and not one that I will be searching out again. It seems a little one dimensional, as if something is missing. I look for big flavours/something exciting in my beers, especially ones from Belgium. This is just too bland I guess. I was also expecting something a little sweeter going by its name alone, it’s not sweet and it’s not bitter, fairly neutral all round. 6.75 / 10.

Dupont...you make some really tasty beer...so what happened here? Pours black with a medium head but only a little lacing. Nose is not very strong, even as it warms. Some chickory, herbal, and limited roasted notes. Taste is mild, a bit watered down, and slightly acrid. Limited traditional maltly toasty flavors. Mouthfeel is a bit rough and over carbonated. Not impressed.

L: black with thick foamy tanned head
S: roasted malt/ thin coffee, mugi-cha (japanese roasted barley tea),
T: citrusy dupont yeast character, crashing with burned coffee. not much caramel malt so it feels empty.
F: finishes dry as expected from their yeast
O: this is not a typical stout by any means... i miss some caramel notes that i associate with this style of beer. instead, this one feels like watered down coffee... dissapointed.
