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".

Can pour into nonic glass from Epsom Circle Market. Aroma is bready, toasted malt with a bit of yeasty sour bordering on bile. Appearance is dark mahogany with two finger-width foamy light brown head with fair retention and sticky foam lacing. Taste is light malty sweetness with roasted quality, mild bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with somewhat creamy texture (especially if you get some of the foamy head), lively carbonation (a bit too much--stings the lips and takes away from the otherwise creamy, mellow mouth feel), dry slightly bitter finish. Overall, this is OK without any real standout qualities but no glaring faults either.

On draft at Deep Ellum. Black pour with a big off white head into a dimpled tankard. Very malty yet not as sweet as expected with the hops offsetting alot of the malt sweetness. Still though, a bit too much on the malty side for me to get too excited about this one.

Average dark beer. Good dark color. For me it did not have enough taste and aroma.
