Since April 1991, the Köstritzer black beer brewery, a subsidiary of the Bitburger brewery, has emerged as of one of the most modern breweries in Thuringia. In September 1993, it was with great pride we (re-) introduced the "original Köstritzer black beer".

on tap at BierStube in Moline, IL pour was a dark brown with a foamy tan head. mild, yet complex in all of its subtle flavors. caramel & chocolate malts, some wheat , banana & clove. the relative low abv makes this a brew I could drink all night.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2005
Poured black, with a light brown head. Sweet pleasant aroma with little evidence of roastyness. Average lacing. This beer is ever so smooth. Malty, roasty flavours roll off the tounge. Finish is a slight roasty bitterness. Such a clean, well balanced beer.

This is my guilty pleasure beer. I’ll admit it’s about as complex as a British cookbook, but I just love the smooth, soothing maltiness. It’s one of those beers you can drink way too fast which is ok cause it is has a crazy low gravity. Just really love the stuff.
