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".

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2002
A red almost black beer with a beutiful head. It has a slightly sweet aroma and a sweet malty and only slightly bitter taste. All in all a good beer that I’ll have again.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) "The black in the blonde soul" the back-label claims. Perhaps a quote by Goethe who supposedly was a great lover of this beer. Pitch black it is with a full, dense light-brown head. Nice body with full throttle on the hops. Very dry and immensely pretty. 291099
