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".
This Schwarzbier style beer from Germany is quite dark with little to no carbonation and a small, short-lived head. The aroma contains tobacco notes along with coffee bean and caramel fragrances. The taste is just like the smell with flavors of cocoa beans, tobacco, and caramel. Kostritzer Schwarzbier is smoothy, creamy, and medium-bodied.
