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.

Alengrin (2885) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Schwarzbier with light beige, regular, firm and creamy head and dark burgundy colour, clear and blackish. Aroma of pure, sweet caramel malts, chocolate, coffee, peat, grass, liquorice. Caramel, bittersweet taste, rich maltiness, smooth, medium carbo, refreshing sourish touch, ending in an assertive, mouth-filling roasted bitterness in which ’drop’ and spicy hops shine through. Better than average for the style.

Pretty good, typical of the style. Light chocolate sweetness, decent amount of roasty character imparts slight bitterness. Not gonna knock your socks off, though.

14.08.2014. 0,5l Swing Top Bottle. Scandinavian Park, Germany. Dark brown colour with off-white head. Sweetish aroma of dark malts. Very smooth with low bitterness and a smooth mellow mouthfeel. Notes of caramel and faint notes of coffee. Aftertaste is a little more bitter with a faint note of liqorise or something like that. Nice beer.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle wob cap hill. Black with a lasting light brown head. Aroma is strong coffee and slight dark chocolate. Body is medium light, spritzy carbonation. Dark malt flavor and light roast up front. Middle leads into a bready toasty malt flavor and it finishes moist and malty sweet. Overall a mostly bitter, roasted, pronounced bitter Sessionable dark lager. Molasses malt flavor lingers. Very awesome brew!

onceblind (5154) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Clear dark ruby brown under a tight foamy light beige head. Wonderful nose of biscuity malts, a touch of cocoa powder, and light toast. Maybe a hint of coffee as well. Tasty flavor of dark cocoa sweetness and biscuity lager malts, a hint of coffee and a dark toast sweetness. Pretty nice.

mateuszk (297) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Draught. Pours dark with beige head. Aroma is sweet, dark malty, chocolate, no roastiness. In flavour similar, the beer is quite sweet, roastiness is appearing. Medium bodied, lively carbonated. Sweet schwarzbier - this is not stuf for me/

TH28 (200) - - JUN 13, 2014
Appearance is dark brown but not quite black, with ruby hints and a tan, creamy head. Aroma is toast, rich caramel, toffee, and a hint of coffee. Taste is a rich Munich caramel with molasses and a touch of roast coffee. Slight fruitiness and licorice. Definitely more rich caramel character than black roasted malt. Firm, well balanced hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a balanced hop bitterness and a lingering caramel and toasted malt. Overall a very light and drinkable beer considering the dark malt character.
