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.

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.

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.

Dark and mysterious. Or maybe the only mystery is what Mönchshof means. Bittersweet chocolate and licorice.

rikstar (1115) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
0,5l fles meegebracht uit Duitsland. Uitgeschonken zwart met een mooie fijne en stabiele schuimkraag. Geur is bijzonder, aards, cacao en moutig. Smaak is bitterzoet, met wederom de cacao die de boventoon voert, een mooie pure chocolade achtige droge afdronk. Body is bovengemiddeld, een van de stevigste schwarzbieren die ik gedronken heb. Nice
