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".

cchubb (74) - Minneola, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2006
On tap in a Kings pint glass. Stunning visual pour with dark red-brown crystal clear body topped with big head that fell fast. Aroma of roasted coffee and toffee. Mouthfeel was clear and crisp with a touch of maltiness and burned sugar flavors. No discernable hops flavor in bitterness or aroma. A delight on a hot day.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - AUG 12, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a lovely brown-red black with a lasting medium-sized smooth and creamy tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet of chocolate malts and vanilla. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with plenty of malt character. Light to medium bodied and somewhat dry. Smooth and satisfying, pleasantly quaffable. Not a pretentious beer, but one whose company is easily entreated and around whom you can comfortably unwind.

piscator34 (2312) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 30, 2006
Canned sample. Dark brown in colour with some hints of red. Aromas of pilsner-like sulfur, toffee, and both pale and dark roast malts. Flavors are mild, yet crystal clear: more toffee and dark roasted malt, dry powdery bread, and a bit of coffee. Light bodied and quaffable. Very classy indeed.
