Mönchshof Schwarzbier- "the Black Pils"- is a brewing wonder and a brew-lover's dream. Supremely drinkable, dry and beautifully hopped, yet loaded with dark malt flavor.

Dark and mysterious. Or maybe the only mystery is what Mönchshof means. Bittersweet chocolate and licorice.

rikstar (1640) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
0,5l fles meegebracht uit Duitsland. Uitgeschonken zwart met een mooie fijne en stabiele schuimkraag. Geur is bijzonder, aards, cacao en moutig. Smaak is bitterzoet, met wederom de cacao die de boventoon voert, een mooie pure chocolade achtige droge afdronk. Body is bovengemiddeld, een van de stevigste schwarzbieren die ik gedronken heb. Nice

The coffe flavour dominates the whole tasting experiance together with a very light sour note. The body is light, common to German Schwarzbeers, but still a bit too light. I also miss some hop. The sweetness is there but humpble. Short and dissapointing finish. Overall watery. It tastes a bit like a light version of a German Schwarzbier. Try a better one first if you don’t know this style yet.

Reviewed on 02/09/14. Bottle, 500ml. A deep dark red beer with a big brown creamy head. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee and alcohol. Taste is bitter with a heavy roasted character. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Some carbonation and astringency. Not very dense, yet rich. Pleasant sweet aftertaste.

Strong Schwarzbier with moderate hops, dark brown medium bodied, with ample sweet chocolate and coffee malts. Picked up an old beat up returnable swing top for $4 USD @ Total Wine.
