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".

Tognetta (491) - Campinas, BRAZIL - OCT 19, 2015
Totalmente negra, espuma marrrom clara de boa formação e persistência, uniforme e aspecto cremoso. Aroma prevalece o malte, levemente adocicada, castanhas e nozes. No paladar aparece mais do amargor torrado, remetendo a café, manteneo um leve dulçor achocolatado, porém ambos discretos, bem diferente de uma porter/stout. Corpo médio assim como a carbonatação, sensação cremosa/aveludada, prazerosa. Um bom exemplo de cerveja preta!

Bottle. Pitch black color, lacing beige head. Bready flavour, slight roast notes. Taste is a bit too dry and bitter for my taste, light sour. Medium texture, average to low carbonation. Aftertaste has just a few roast and coffee notes.

Schlumpfhunter (33) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2015
Farbe: schwarz Schaum: sehr gut, fein, bleibend Nase: nur leicht süsslich und rauchig Geschmack: auf der Zunge eher wässrig, leicht. Dann der Abgang: Ziemlich klarer Geschmack nach Rübensirup, geräuchert natürlich. Noch ein bisschen eine Kellernote dazu. Nachgeschmack: wie der Abgang, nichts Bitteres, kaum Säure. Insgesamt: recht nettes Dunkles, nichts Besonderes, kann man immer mal zum Essen trinken.
