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.

imdownthepub (10468) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Bottled, 500ml at Alter Kranen, Wurzburg, Bavaria. Virtually black with cream head. There is certainly a darkly roasted coffee, malt element to this once you have fought your way through over carbonation, damn them. Fruity sweet, some liquorice too, even hints of tar. Getting there.

That’s a bad beer. Tastes like livestock feed/molasses. Who cares about tbe black color and no head.

SWING-TOP 50CL from ciocanelu. Thanks, Silviu. Look: deep red-brown and clear, orange-beige creamy head. Aroma: strong malt character, grainy, toasted, light roast. Taste: dark malts, bready, filter coffee, co2, very weak hop bitterness, a dash of ashes, dry, no caramel sweetness. A good drinkable schwarzbier.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
500 ml bottle poured into glass mug. Murky reddish-brown hue with a ridiculously large (mostly the result of a bad pour on my part) creamy tan head with good retention. Medium intensity aroma of molasses and cocoa with some grassiness and lactic tartness. Flavor is very smooth with a lot more chocolate character than I was expecting combined with nuttiness and a dry, slightly bitter finish.

Pours a dark ruby redwith a decent off white head. Aroma is all grain and malt. Taste is much of the same..nothing to it. If you like German dark beers you’ll like this...I didn’t.

Chopper925 (158) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours in a nice dark cloudy brown, with creamy yellow-brownish head. Aromas of cacao, dark chocolate, toffee and coffee, one can smell the roast malts very clearly and good. Taste is sour and dry, this is not a sweet Schwarzbier. Moderate bitterness. Fizzy carbonation, with a thin mouth feel and a great roasty-malty, coffee after taste. Very tasty Schwarzbier,

On-tap at Max und Moritz, Berlin. Dark-brown with a nice beige head. Splendid aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Moderate sweet with coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and bread with perfectly matching bitterness, quite tasty. Medium-bodied, creamy texture. Excellent Schwarzbier.

ruigo (1153) - PORTUGAL - APR 22, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from Trinkgut (Wittlich). Pours a deep brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted, coffee, toffee and dry fruits. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is médium bitter and light sweet with a dry and lightly astringent finish. Overall, a pleasant beer.
