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".

Pours ruby black with a big beige creamy head. Aroma is of raisins and chocolate. Tastes of light chocolate, raisins, mild coffee, and cereal. Palate is smooth, creamy with average carbonation and is very clean feeling.

It is an average dunkel beer better than usual. The body is black and white foam. The taste is classical, roasted malt, bitter and hop and well balanced. I bought this beer in Sevilla at the hypercor in the San Pablo area.

Demens (127) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 3, 2016
0,33l bottle. Black colour with quickly disappearing light brown head. Aroma: Sour and yeasty with notes of caramel. Taste: Medium bitter start with sour after taste. Malty dark lager taste without any sweet caracter. A bit watery but okey. Medium carbonation with light body. Short light bitter finish.Good to drink but nothing fancy here.

nephirem (125) - CROATIA - MAR 28, 2016
Pours thick black with medium beige head that leaves some lacing. Smell of roasted malts and caramel. Medium to full body with average carbonation. Thick and smooth texture. Bittersweet taste with very pleasant aroma of roasted malts, caramel, toffee and dark fruits. Some slightly metallic notes towards the end spoil this one a bit, but overall it’s not that big of a deal. Not bad, would definitely drink this one again.

Nice tan head that was long lasting. A nice dark color with an aroma of coffee with a nutty undertone. Nice palate and pleasing after taste.

Birra semplice, da pasto, nessun acuto ma si difende bene per la tua tipologia.

Hafif karamel tadıyla başlayan yolculuk yerini dengeli bir malt ve şerbetçi otuna bırakıyor. Çok gövdeli olmamakla birlikte damakta uzun süre tadını muhafaza ediyor. Köpük pek iyi değil, kısa sayılabilcek sürede ciddi miktarda azalıp istenen seviyelerin altına iniyor. Dantel yok gibi.
