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.

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.

Dark brown color with brown head. Aroma is roasty and caramelly. Taste has smokey flavour, it’s light sweet, but quite strong taste anyway. A good schwarz-bier.

Flaske 0,5 liter, er meget mørkt i farven, dufter godt og man er ikke i tvivl om at man har gang i en Schwartz Beer, jeg vil dog her påpege at jeg ikke syntes at det den bedste af slagsen jeg har smagt.

Glimrende schwarzbeer fra Tyskland. Sødelig mørk malt med fin krydret smag. Nice...

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma of chocolate and roast, touch of coffee and a big load of malts. Flavor is a bit sweet, thin, some chocolate with a bitter aftertaste. Soft carbonation, decent, not much special.

Pretty nice. Extremely mild hop flavor. Very dark malty notes. Mild sweetness balanced with a tad bit of tartness.

500ml Flasche. Klar und schwarz. Cremige, dunkle Schaumkrone. Starkes Kaffeearoma, sehr malzig. Im Antrunk minimal bitter, danach süsslich.
