If it was good enough for Goethe, it’s good enough for me! Best beer in the world! (In my humble opinion!)

as you can tell... I love this beer. To me its perfect, but people who like lighter beer might not like it. But, it is most definitely a must try. I’ll take this any way I can get it, from the bottle, a glass, a stein, from the tap, or in a plastic cup, I’ll drink it.

Bičre trčs surprenante...bičre noir mais rafraichissante et pétillante comme une blonde. Ressemble ŕ une porter mais moins sucré et meilleur.

On draft at The Bavarian Lodge in Lisle. One if the finest schwarzbiers I have ever had. Very tasty and drinkable! They have been brewing since 1543 so they have it down pat. A must try if you find it on draft. damayor---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jedno z nejlepšich černých piv co jsem kdy pil. Přijemně nasládlá chut s lehce nahořklým dojezdem.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2006 My favorite beer in one of my favorite styles. I am biased. When my local pub took this one off their tap list, I had to find a new watering hole. Proper glassware, proper temperature, and on tap I have never found a beer that I prefer to Kostritzer. In Germany, a small sprinkle of sugar is often added to aid head retention.
