Monteiths Black (New Zealand)

Monteiths Black Beer
Monteiths Brewing Company
5.2% ABV

Monteiths have been producing beer since 1868 when it was established.  It is infact New Zealand's longest running brewery. 

The Black Beer uses 5 different malts in the brew.

Not much more information available at this time.


The malts offer a little chocolate and a little hit of coffee aromas and accompany a dark almost black liquid with a frothy tan head.  The beer has some sweetness along with light bitterness.  Unexpectedly the beer is very light and creamy.

Not as much flavour as I would have liked and too light on the palate, quite surprisingly for the dark colour.  It does however allow for very easy consumption.

Scores: -

Aroma 5/10
Appearance 4/5
Taste 5/10
Palate 3.5/5
Overall 14.5/20

Total 64%
