Impression:  I had enjoyed their Pils but Thuringia is know for Schwarzbier so I was looking forward to this Schwarzbier. It was coal black with a tan head. The nose had a befitting touch of espresso for good measure. It was roasty with this coffee aspect in the background and the finish was clean, dry and slightly bitter. I’m not always a huge fan of the style but when they are dry like this one, they can be quite good and a style you can really session on.
