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".

Bottle. Dark brown with cream head that lasts. Roast malt chocolate flavour fairly sweet and full bodied. I enjoyed this and will try again.

Murky brown color with a beautifull, thick, frothy, white head, nice lacing too. Aroma of roasted malt, mild chocolate and fruit (cherries and raspberries).Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate and fruits. Light body, soft carbonation, chalky finish. Not bad but I’m not too fond of schwarzbier.

500 ml can. Very dark brown/mohogany coloured beer with a thick, lasting off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and light fruit. Flavour is similar but also has a nice herbal quality. A trace of flowery hops in both the nose and the mouth. Dry finish. Very tasty.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Aroma is chocolate, roasty, butterscotch. Pour is a black, ruby with light. Nice lasting head. Light chocolate, with cherry, and rasberries. A very nice beer, this is something I could drink often.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Coffee colored with ruby tints and a large foamy white head. Lightly sweet malts, some raosted barley and bitter-sweet cocoa all come through in the flavor. Finishes dry and moderatley bitter. Nice stuff.

jgentgesdo (685) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Pours black with a reddish head. Chocolate malt to the nose. This was a disappointment in the flavor area, with a definite musty, moldy taste that makes me think my beer was either no longer fresh or infected. Ugh.

12oz bottle: Pours an actual black in the bottle. A bit scary at frist, but it is called Schwarzbier for a reason. Has a thick red head. Overtone of malt with an almost coffee like aftertaste. Good beer, I’ll have to get it again.

Large light brown head, fair retention and lace. Dark brown, red hued brew.. Lightly malty, smokey nose. Light/medium body, thinnish. Light malty flavors, somewhat phenolic, light woodiness. Dry finish, light oxydative notes.
