4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sweet flip-top bomber.
Inviting brown colored beer with a nice tan to light brown colored head.
This beers aroma is mostly of grain and patent malt with hints of chocolate/charred malt and smoke.
Starts out almost dry with a strong malt flavor. Very much a heavily roasted malt beer, a bit of sweetness coming through with the ample carbonation hits your tongue. The flavors become really more pronounced once you let this one warm up.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a tasty beer that I will definitely drink again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has a nice persistent foam and a delicious aroma of hard roasted malt with a little flavor also on fruit. The taste is rich and good and come back with hard roasted malt with a sensible portion of caramel malt which maintains an almost too perfect sweetness that surpasses the slightly bitter coffee notes. Hop bitterness is slightly present and prefer a long aftertaste with slightly fruity shades. Very rich and very tasty schwarzbier. For the first time in my schwarzbier-hiking I find a copy as my taste buds love as much as my favorite schwarz from Köstritzer. Although the two beer is not completely similar to each other in the aftertaste, they have, however, both a high quality.

Optisch im Krug eine echte Perle, sattes Schwarz, dichter Schaum wie Cappuccino. Im Trunk deutlich dominante Röstaromen, fast ein Porter. Im Abgang hallt das noch lange nach - Mönchshofs bestes würde ich sagen.

Bottle from a REWE in Nuremberg. Dark brown with a slight, off-white, head. Plenty of sweetish, chocolate, character, a slightly jarring vegetal edge and touch of toasted malt in the finish. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep dark with beige foam, dissipates fairly quick, slight lacings. Milky, roasted aroma, dark fruit, overall a nice roundess to it. Taste follows the same fashion, with a semi sweet, roasted taste with a slight bitterness throughout the end. Medium to big body, light to medium carbo. A delicate, well-rounded schwarzbier, flavourful and drinkable at the same time.

Marrone scuro, quasi nero, con una bella testa di schiuma color caramello molto chiaro di buona persistenza.
Al naso e al palato malti tostati, malti caramellati, cacao.
Dissetante e leggera, una buona schwarzbier.
