Forging mighty beers one batch at a time.

Beer Notes: Köstritzer Schwarzbier

Beer notes: Köstritzer Schwarzbier

I got a bottle of this unexpectedly today. I poured some into my beer glass and gave it a taste. 

The beer poured a deep reddish black. There was a small head that dissipated almost immediately.

The nose is a bit sour with some hints of dry chocolate. First sip is enormously malty. This is one malty brew - not much hop to balance things out. It actually tastes a bit like the dunkel that I brewed last year. 

Overall I’m just not a huge fan of this style. I’m glad to have found a commercial beer that is similar to something that I’ve brewed though.
