3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From mini-keg: Poured a medium dark brown colored liquid that created a huge foam head that took several minutes to retreat. The beer appeared to be nitrous like almost similar to how Guinness pours. Aroma is lightly roast with delicate sweet undertones of caramel malt that pairs nicely with the authentic German yeast used. Palate is as smooth as velvet and is easily quaffed. Taste of the beer is plain and nearly bland in flavor other than some evidence of a light roast malt. Finishes with a taste of tart or bitterness in the end but it is very minimal.

Bottle (from alcostock, Tallinn). Pours dark brown with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, caramel, burnt sugar, malt, grains. Flavor follows the nose. Body is rather thin. Overall: more sugar water than beer, but drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has a nice persistent foam and a delicious aroma of hard roasted malt with a little flavor also on fruit. The taste is rich and good and come back with hard roasted malt with a sensible portion of caramel malt which maintains an almost too perfect sweetness that surpasses the slightly bitter coffee notes. Hop bitterness is slightly present and prefer a long aftertaste with slightly fruity shades. Very rich and very tasty schwarzbier. For the first time in my schwarzbier-hiking I find a copy as my taste buds love as much as my favorite schwarz from Köstritzer. Although the two beer is not completely similar to each other in the aftertaste, they have, however, both a high quality.

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.

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.
