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.

16.9oz bottle 9/22/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in Mug-Pours black with a three finger off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Taste of the same with a bit more chocolate and coffee. This is a very good schwarz. Not usually my fav style but this is rather tasty.

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.

bartzluke (203) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2015
6 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Dark-brown-to-black and opaque with a moderate white head. Great nose. Rich, malty, and nutty. Fairly full bodied and creamy. Taste has some good layers. Chocolate, nuts, cream, and a little milky sweetness. Flavorful and drinkable.

Had a small sample over at The Annoying Cow .. . Black .. Medium foam .. Lots of dark malts and grittiness .. Thin feel, bad finish .. I’ve had much better schwartz beers . .. . I’ve had many better romps in the hay but damned if I’ll let her know!

Nevalainen (232) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
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...

MrHangover (3107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
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.

Pinball (11100) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2015
very very dark brown, smooth light brown head. aroma of lightly roasted malts, and a little coffee powder. bitter nuts. flavor is lightly roasted malts, nuts, very faint caramelly sweetness, palate is super soft, a very drinkable and good tasting schwarz, quenching. Got this in a supermarket, positively surprised.
