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.

Echon (367) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 2, 2016
A medium-bodied very dark brown beer, with a malty aroma and flavour, and caramel notes. Light watery taste, with light sweetness. This beer did not really do anything for me.

Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts. nice ebony color with a thick tan head. Sweet up front. Rich chocolate, with a nice subtle bitterness to balance. Slightly watery mouth feel but not of putting. Finish is a nice mixture of sweet/bitter chocolate. Nice beer.

Clear dark brown beer with a big fluffy brown head. Nose is malty, bready, roasty notes, earth. Flavor is soft breadiness with mild acidity, grains, roast. Mild bitter finish, more roast and weak acidity. Simple, but fairly pleasant.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - JAN 5, 2016
Limpida dal colore marrone intenso, quasi nero ed una bella schiuma nocciola un po' grossolana. Al naso arrivano prugne, cioccolato e pane tostato. Al palato è beverina con note di malto affumicato e frutta secca. Il finale è fresco ed invita a lunghe bevute. L'amaro e l'alcol non si avvicina proprio al bicchiere.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Nice color, dark brown nearly-black, tan-colored head. Light mouthfeel, roasty flavor, chocolate, caramel. Not bad, nice example of the style, but I was hoping for better.
