A fantastic black lager with roasted chocolate and liquorice aromas. Mildly sweet with a big dry malt flavour. Smooth dry malt finish with just a touch of hop bitterness.
Köstritzer Schwarzbier is brewed at Germany’s famous Köstritzer Brauerei which was established in 1543. One of the most notable drinkers of Köstritzer Schwarzbier was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who sustained himself on black beer from Köstritz when he was unable to eat during a period of illness.
