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.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 9, 2014
Almost black body and frothy large tan head. Like the sticker on the flip top says, it’s moderate and soft on the nose, yet very well developed too, with doughy malts, bit of biscuits and even some milk chocolate. Juicy mouth feel, nice drinkable body with its low abv. Milky even. Not ad hopped or harsh as a sweet stout, but with its very clean yeast it packs more taste than it promises. Very nice! (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bamsen78 (3107) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of roasted malt and caramel, with notes of fruit. Bitter, roasty and hoppy flavour, quickly giving rise to sweetish notes of malt and caramel. Touches of coffee beans. Sourish and bitter finish. Medium to high carbonation. A decent Schwarzbier.

God fyldig duft av vørter. Mørk brun, nesten sort farge. Tykt brunt kremet skum. Mild preget sittende smak av vørter.

Very full, thick and well balanced schwarzbier. Maybe not really unique, still really good.

Sissio (576) - Orsenigo, ITALY - NOV 29, 2013
At tap at Kapuziner in Castelseprio Good beer, very drinkable. But very difficult to taste as it shiuld be done... Too much stuff to eat in there

BOSSbrewer (1594) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
On tap at Alewife in Baltimore. Pours a dark brown with slight tan head. Nice lacing. Sweetness and chocolate on the nose. Flavor is sweet chocolate. Too sweet. Slight roast also. Medium to light bodied. Ok.

JDBaker11058 (1246) - Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Appearance: clear dark mahogany, with two fingers of thick, creamy light beige head shrinking to a thick collar, leaving good lace. Aroma: surprisingly solid nose of sweet milk chocolate, light breakfast roast coffee, caramel, and a hint of white pepper. Taste: sweet and slightly roasty, with chocolate, coffee, cereal grains, a hint of chicory and lemongrass. Finish: crisp and smooth, slowly drying, with slight roasty sweetness lasting. Notes: On the sweet side for a schwarzbier; in fact, one of the sweeter ones I’ve had. Frankly, they pack a wallop of flavor into a lighter beer. Really enjoyable.

Clear dark brown with light tan head. Nose of roasted malt and sweet caramel. Taste follows nose. Watery mouth feel.
