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.

Deep reddish brown body with a thin but clinging beige head. Light yet inviting aroma. Caramel, nuts, malt. I thought the palate was a bit thin but smooth. The flavor is excellent. Caramel and brown sugar tempered only slightly by a crisp fruit finish. Highly drinkable!

weihenweizen (2155) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2015
0.5 L flip top bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Black with medium light brown head. Aroma is light chocolate, medium body, medium carbonation, and good thin small-bubble lacing. Taste malty chocolate with a slightly dry finish. Good Schwartz bier.

Teran (156) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 6, 2015
Sweet and deep roasted malt, long lasting tan head. Aroma coffee, very dark. Molasses flavor. Watery mouth feel, average carbonation. Good beer.

ninecats (316) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2015
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.

hallinghansen (2353) - Odense S, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle. Hazy dark brown body with a medium frothy offwhite head. Malt, light chocolate, notes of hazelnuts, light hops. Smooth and soft. Very drinkable.

SkillsFactory (148) - ITALY - MAY 15, 2015
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 (270) - 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 (247) - 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...
