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.

suurjuust (2913) - ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2016
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.

pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2015
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.

Gubihumle (584) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2015
Flaske. Farven er sortbrun og skumkronen er god fast og lysebrun. Aromaen er ristet malt og brød, og disse dufte går igen i smagen, der udvides med kaffe og en tør ristet eftersmag.

nazzty (1271) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
Mild roasted malt with a smoky hint of violet and plum. Good lasting bitterness and a slight touch of chocolate. More dunkel than schwarzbier.

migwell (277) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2015
500ml bottle into a large pilsner glass. Big head and a mild sweet aroma. Roasted malt flavor, rich and creamy, this is a delightfully well balanced dark beer with a lighter ABV. Another hit from the Kulmbacher brewery.

SDalkoholic (2359) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
From mini-keg: Poured a medium dark brown colored liquid that created a huge foam head that took several minutes to retreat. The beer appeared to be nitrous like almost similar to how Guinness pours. Aroma is lightly roast with delicate sweet undertones of caramel malt that pairs nicely with the authentic German yeast used. Palate is as smooth as velvet and is easily quaffed. Taste of the beer is plain and nearly bland in flavor other than some evidence of a light roast malt. Finishes with a taste of tart or bitterness in the end but it is very minimal.
