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.

Kavu (3011) - Helsinki, - FEB 12, 2013
0,5l bottle from Alko. Pous dark amber with a high light tan head. Aroma is slightly roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts with some nuts and hops. Not too remarkable, but quite decent.

Fisler (241) - Bamberg, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
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.

downender (7050) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
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.

Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, caramel, lichte rook en chokolade. Goed bier.

weihenweizen (2268) - 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.

ninecats (334) - 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 (2420) - 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 (196) - 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 (391) - 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.
