Monteiths Black (New Zealand)
Monteiths Black Beer
Monteiths Brewing Company
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.
