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".

Not bad, but also not impressive. The aroma was pleasant, but the flavor lacked character.

The aroma is roasty, and a bit bitter. The taste was surprisingly bland. The only strong flavor was the yucky aftertaste. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this beer left almost no impression on me. The color was pretty...a dark brown.

An easy to drink dark beer not too heavy.

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Malty, dark bread aroma with a hint of hop. Pleasant, deep, dark brown color with a fair bit of carbonation. Flavor has some nut, a bit of cocoa and an overriding, dry, burnt graininess. Finish is also very dry with a light bitterness and the graininess gives an interesting texture counterpoint to the effervescence. Light-bodied. I was not disappointed with this beer.

Dark black color, roasted malt aroma, this is a great schwarzbier.

Black color. Smells like tobacco. Not my favorite style of beer.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Re-rate: malty with some liquorice. Smooth biterness. Very suitable to drink more in a row.
