Kostritzer Schwarzbier (500ml Bottle)
Since April 1991, the Kostritzer 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 Kostritzer black beer".
Dark black cherry coke colour, creamy tan head. Burnt malt aroma, carbonated malty flavor with some coffee and breadiness. Slightly bitter finish. Worth trying and very drinkable.
Dark brown to black. Medium body. Roasted malt evident. Low sweetness in aroma and flavor. Low to medium bitterness. Low bitterness from roast malt. Hop flavor and aroma, "noble-type" OK. No fruitiness, esters.
