Monk’s Stout (5.2% ABV) – Monk’s Stout is made by the Dupont Brewery and is definitely a Belgian version of a stout. The beer pours a dark black color with tan foam head consisting of tiny bubbles. Monk’s Stout has a strong coffee and chocolate aroma combined with an earthy barnyard background. The beer is light to medium-bodied with pleasant carbonation. Although dry, Monk’s Stout is not as dry as a typical Irish or American stout. This stout has rich espresso coffee and chocolate flavors with subtle citrus undertones. These flavors are complex and not as powerful as American stouts (which can tend to go over the top). Monk’s Stout has a peppery spice finish. You can definitely tell this beer was brewed using Belgian yeast. This is an excellent beer that demonstrates uncanny Belgian ability to brew complex, flavorful beers in any style.
