Kostritzer Schwarzbier

Type: dark lager
Origin: Bad Kostritz, Germany
Price: $2.49 per 0.5 L

What isn't awesome about this beer? It's black, has an awesome label, is made in a city named "Bad Kostritz" and sustained Johann Wolfgang von Goethe during an extended illness. I think they also used this as bombs during the Blitzkrieg to make their opponents easier to conquer. Anyways, this beer has a very full slow settling head. The color is very similar to black coffee. It is slightly sweet in smell, and surprisingly has an incredibly light flavor. There is a faint coffee/nut/dark chocolate flavor that comes in the back of the mouth. This is fairly similar to the dark lager at U Fleku in Prague.
