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!

limbonicartbeer (10) - - MAY 12, 2016
Cerveza lager de color obscuro, de poca carbonatacion. Al olfato se perciben aromas a maltas y café tostado de manera sutil. Al paladar se percibe café y maltas tostadas con un toque final ácido sin llegar a saturar el resto de espectro de sabores. Conclusión Cerveza lager recomendable para aquellos que gusten de cervezas ligeras pero con carácter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Echon (283) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 2, 2016
A medium-bodied very dark brown beer, with a malty aroma and flavour, and caramel notes. Light watery taste, with light sweetness. This beer did not really do anything for me.
