Schwarzbier - keine Angst! Die Kyritzer sind ein rauhes aber liebenswürdiges Völkchen. Dieser rauflustige Name steht für ein Schwarzbier, das in Kyritz schon im 17. Jh. gebraut wurde und die Stadt Kyritz bis nach Hamburg, Lübeck und am kurfürstlichen Hof bekannt machte. Die Stadt Kyritz übertrug der Klosterbrauerei Neuzelle die Produktion und den Vertrieb des historischen dunklen Bieres des Mittelalters, wodurch nun auch ein Stück Kyritzer Geschichte in Neuzelle einkehrt.

Beautiful deep black beer with nougat colored stable foam. Aroma does not offer much. It’s probably because of the dense foam, but a little chocolate and coffee may well be tracked. Rather atypically smoked malt is predominant flavor. It should not be understood such that a porter may not taste of smoke, but in this case is probably a little smoke in focus with respect to the expectation from a porter. Hard roasted malt and coffee are the next flavors and there is no doubt that this porter explores the limits. It is a very robust and full-bodied beer, and it tastes really nice. If you like the classic porter, then you will probably be surprised by this. It is both schwarzbier, doppelbocks, smoked beer and stout at the same time.

SanfordBrewer (1412) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Opaque black with creamy tan head. Creamy full body with medium carbonation.

Aroma: bready munich malt, clean rosted barley, cereal grain, pilsner malt, faint floral hops, minimal yeast character.

Taste: pilsner and munich malt, dry roastiness, cola, licorice, floral hops, tart acidity, slight diacetyl.

Great complexity and richness. More body then examples from further East, but very well balanced. Comes scross like a German immitation of a milk stout. Maybe a little too much munich malt for me. Very enjoyable!

5oz on tap at the Ei8ht Ball. Toasty, tobacco, dark raisin flavor up front. Plum. Touch of dark chocolate. Dark red / brown color. Thin ring of khaki head. Some nuttiness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Moderate sweet taste. Light to moderate bitter. A decent baltic porter. Touch astringent. Kind of raisiny and dark fruity overall. Seeing the mild soy, mentioned by alexsdad06. Slightly ashy. Nice + flavorful, though.
