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".

Zwarte kleur, beige schuim. Ruikt naar koffie en toast. Smaakt heerlijk, beetje als Guinness maar zachter.

I would recommend this beer since its kinda cheap and the overall flavor/aroma on it is strong plus it has a good kick.

HammerTroll (191) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 18, 2014
Very dark, no head. Coffee aroma. Slightly sweet finish. Medium to full body. Not bad, but also nothing special. Expected more aroma. (Vrutak 0,33l bottle)

veceo (229) - CROATIA - MAR 17, 2014
Beautiful dark brown color, almost black, thin tan head. Light body, soft carbonation. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted malt, some frutiness. Too light and too thin. OK, but I’m not impressed.

EyeAmBaldman (124) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours opaque brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is metallic and not good. Taste is full roasted malt. Not bad. Has a bitter aftertaste. This is one that smells bad and tastes much better.

RaduLuchian (9) - München, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014 does not count
Great bier, seemed pretty strong altough it wasn’t. Very opaque dark body and thick dense head lasting several minutes. Nice malty caramel taste that leaves a slightly bittery aftertaste. Being an enthusiast of dark beers, this one will definitely have a spot saved.

tore_pettersen (191) - - MAR 14, 2014
Nesten svart med høyt brunt skum. Lukt av malt, svisker, karamell og litt røyk. Noe kaffe og maltsmak. Lite kullsyre, medium bitter. Smaker litt utvannet stout, ikke den helt store smaksopplevelsen.

scythe_pl (2) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 9, 2014 does not count
Great taste with the slightest hint of sweetness and a tiny bitter aftertaste - it all makes a very good beer.

Pour from bottle, dark clear liquid with adequate head that flattens fast. Smells caramel and taste grain with light bitter aftertaste.
