Monteithâ€™s Black Beer is in a league of its own in the heritage of very dark West Coast beers brewed prior to restrictions imposed on beers in New Zealand during World War II. By todayâ€™s standards, Monteithâ€™s Black Beer is distinctive, with a higher alcohol content than â€˜mainstreamâ€™ beers and a crisp dark maltiness. This complex malty characteristic shines through from the use of five different premium malts. With biscuit, nutty, caramel, chocolate and coffee malt characteristics, itâ€™s a special taste in beers that is truly akin to the rich black beers historically produced on the West Coast of New Zealand. Monteithâ€™s brewers have developed traditional yeasty fermentation characters through which they meld berry-fruit notes with the aroma of this complex blend of malts.
