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".

Kostritzer has a good taste and a perfect drink for "oudjaarsavond".

Possibly the thinnest beer I’ve had. After promising initial taste it simply disappears with no middle or aftertaste. I wasn’t aware of a beer that could do that even if it wanted to (but why would it?). Nice dark color though with an initial taste evident of this style.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 (Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a large beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, roasted, nuts, dark fruit, and molasses. Falvor of toasted malt with a sweet finish.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Black color with a thin head. Sweet malt aroma. Very bitter taste and is overall quite watery. It’s decent enough, but much better Schwarzbiers out there.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - NOV 24, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Medium light brown head that does not hold. Dark brown coffee color. Nice coffee aroma, and tastes with hints of chocolate and coffee. A very nice light dark beer.

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - NOV 22, 2004
355 ml bottle. Average to large light brown head, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Dark brown (but not opaque) body that appear to be of thin density. Light sweetness as well as molasses in the nose as aroma. Light balanced sweetness as both initial and final flavor with barely no persistance. Very refreshing feel, a light bit of astringence (but very light) coming from roasted grains? Very light and thin body, a bit watery and dry. Very soft carbonation.

Purplish in color, kind of watery, but pleasant in taste. Best served at room temperature or slightly chilled.
