Dupont Monk's Stout....$8.49 / 750ml
Dupont has done it again. They’ve brewed the first true Belgian interpretation of Stout, not a simple recreation of the style. Dark, dry and quenching, as only Dupont’s active and attenuating yeast can make it. Monk’s Stout has an intense black coffee aroma with a fine bitterness. It is light, almost astringent, on the tongue—like strong iced espresso. It finishes with deep roasted (almost charred) malt that is bracing and refreshing without the slightest trace of heaviness. Stout lovers expecting a gentler roasted malt quality or a sweet lactose roundness that lingers on the palate will find Monk’s Stout surprising, if not challenging. But for those who have always found Stouts flavorful but not sufficiently quenching, who like roasted malt, but not the lingering, oftentimes coating, mouth feel, now have a Stout to call our own. Monk’s Stout — without a doubt a truly Belgian kind of Stout.
GREAT WITH FOOD!
Better than champagne with oysters. So nice with maatjes (herring).
Pair with bourbon soy marinated flank steak, sushi (really!), spicy Szechuan dishes, cumin rubbed pork loin and sautéed apples, shepherd’s pie, well- aged cheddar and gouda. Delicious with chocolate pecan pie with vanilla ice cream.
