A mahogany colour, and a lasting, cream-coloured, finely pored head are the defining features of Köstritzer black lager beer. Its expressive fragrance evokes a range of intense spicy aromas, including sage, roasted chestnuts, dark honey, bitter chocolate and fresh, farm-baked bread. Dry on the palate, and marked by bitter-sweet herbal and toasting aromas. The intense aromas are balanced by the gently sparkling carbonation with freshness and elegance. With delicate bitter tones and malty sweetness, it finishes slowly on the palate. A complex, many-layered black lager beer that tastes lean and refreshing with its abundance of flavours.
