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.

rauchbierlover (580) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2013
Deep black body with a nice and persistent beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, some coffee. Taste is dark coffee, chocolate, slightly caramel. A bit dry. Low bodied, but very pleasant mouthfeel. Nice one!

Quack-Duck (7523) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle from a wooden Rewe multipack. Deep brown, creamy beige head. Full of roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee... Not too dry, however, the sweetness is subtle yet present and pleasant. Shy hops and a tiny touch of smoke in the lingering finish.

Kosmokrator (426) - ITALY - JUL 28, 2013
Alla spina. Color nero lucido con un pannoso velo di schiuma beige. Aroma e gusto offrono una delicata combinazione di malto, cacao, fondi di caffè, cereali, nocciole, fumo e caramello; di corpo lieve e piacevolmente frizzantina, un po’ povera nel finale ma cremosa nella struttura. Una buona schwarze senza dubbio.

Oerskov (3) - DENMARK - JUL 19, 2013 does not count
Serveret i 500 ml flaske på Fränkischer Hof, Rehau im biergarten. God fylde og fin rund smag. Eftersmagen er relativ kort. Men en generelt rigtig god schwarz bier.

this is a true classic, with its utterly delicious, mild, YooHoo-like coco accentuated maltiness. smooth and gentle, yet rich and fulfilling. no harshness -- just pure northern bavarian mellow dark malt brilliance.

thirstyrabbit (1006) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle. Mahogany body with a tall head. Roasty aroma with coffee characteristics. Taste has some roast but is thin. Starts great but turns a bit watery by the finish. Quite good but not my "dream" beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Haus Wertheim. Dark reddish brown with a light tan head. Aroma of dark toasty bread, cocoa, coffee and light smoke. Flavor is rich and malty with hints of cocoa and coffee, balancing hop bitterness and light smoke in the finish. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Excellent beer, kind of between a Dunkel and a Schwartz with a bit of smoke.

Marduk (2039) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 27, 2013
500ml bottle. Deep dark copper color. Tiny off-white head, somewhat says. Roasted malts, raisins, plums, woody notes in aroma. Roasted malts, grainy, fruity flavor. Crisp mouthfeel. Burnt sugar, roasty aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

Gutifa (135) - Bad Wurzach, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 Dark brown, almost black with 2 fingers of tanned head. Aroma is of cocoa, cafe and a ton of roasted malts. Liquor, more roasted malts, dark chocolate and some bitternes in mouth. With little bit more of body and softer carbonation it could be a really good beer. Anyways still the best Schwarz that I ever drunk. Some days later, I drunk one more and it was contaminated. Strange for a German Brewery. Schade.

Bottle. This is a great brew with lots of nice roast flavor on a very light chasis.
