Good beer, not great. Black lager, with mild coffee overtones. Highly carbonated. Not visually appealing. But refreshing. There is almost a cola flavor in this one...

L - Pours dark brown with a thin off-white head.

S - Pretty weak on the nose, some coffee but otherwise not much.

T - Taste some coffee, maybe some chocolate and sweetness on the finish. Pretty sweet and chalky which surprised me. Did they add sugar to this?

F - Waaaay too carbonated. Very over carbonated, kind of watery not much body. Felt like I was drinking a coca cola. Lighter bodied than their weizen, and not nearly as good either.

Overall, this was like drinking a coca cola with some coffee flavor thrown in. The weizen these guys make is a good beer. This one not so much. Won't ever get this again.

On tap at Prost-Boise. Silky smooth, velvety head. Malty, fruity, not as roasty or bitter as I would have guessed, closer to a dunkel. Dry, chalky Finish.

Poured from a growler into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a half finger light khaki head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of toasted, lightly bready malt, milk chocolate, rye bread. Flavor follows aroma, with toasted malt, light chocolate, hints of nuts and light fruit, finishes malty with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Flavor is classic schwarzbier, with a nice toasty malt body and good light flavors of nuts, chocolate and light hops. Although the flavor is light, it continues full force into the finish, with good residual flavors of malt to support the light finish hopping. Subdued, but pleasantly flavored. I was happy to drink this all evening.
NOTE: this is undoubtedly the same beer reviewed under Pfungstädter Brauerei with the same name, but to consistent with BA rules, this beer should be listed here, under Köthener Brauerei; Pfungstädter brews this under contract for Köthener, under the latter brewery's name.
