Monchshof Rauchbier pours a deep opaque black hue with an off white puffy head. Great lacing and overall appearance. I've had this a few times, once on tap, now I am reviewing the bottled experience. The aroma is so full of roasty malts, it's almost savory. Very mouth-watering. The splendid taste had more of the aforementioned aspects, as well as chicory and coffee, and some faint hops. All very, very balanced and smooth. What a full mouth feel one gets with this for such a low ABV beer! Truly a triumph of a Schwarzbier, definitely my new favorite of the style (I love German Beer). Order it with confidence, and have a couple at only 4.9%! Prost!

3.99/5 rDev -1.5%

Poured from the bottle into a pokal glass.
A bit murky looking color and appearance, but a real nice mahogany and reddish colored body, with some nice rising faint bubbles. Head is easily three fingers tall, foamy, full of swiss cheese retention and coffee cocoa brown in color. A little bit of soapy lacing. Neat looker.
Real nice clean aroma. Light powdered cocoa, hints of light cream and drip poured diner coffee. Some fresh ripping grain to match. This is very solid.
Palate comes with a lighter body than I expected, but more than delivers on the taste. Light amounts of milk chocolate and wafer like crispy malts. Small hints of milk and coffee finish, with a hints of clove like aroma. Slightly fruity interestingly, with a dry aftertaste and grain aromas that really last.
Overall a real clean and refreshing Schwarzbier, good one to know about, but probably enjoy Kostritzer a bit more.
