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.

fuzzcro (209) - Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Nice aroma and appearance but the taste was bland. I’m wondering if my taste was off that much but thinking the "dry" word used in the description may be the explanation as to why it didn’t appeal to my taste.

NikitaDE (33) - Minsk / Schweinfurt, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2016
Very dark, almost black opaque color. Thin foam with small carbonation and not a very lasting foam. The smell - chocolate, kvass, coffee, caramel.The taste - roasted malt, coffee, a bit bitterness but it is optimal. A palate is just bitterness of hops and that is all. Average beer but with interesting smell and taste)

limbonicartbeer (23) - - 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
