A full-bodied beer, bottom-fermented brewed according to the German Purity Law, according to an individual recipe, in Franconia often according to "secret recipe" or "type of house". Dark beer usually has an original gravity of 10 to 14 percent and an alcohol content of 4.8 to 5 percent. The beer owes its dark colour to special or roasted malts used in brewing. These not only shape the colour but also the taste. Dark beer tastes malty, a little like caramel or chocolate, but anything but sweet. Usually the dark beer has a slight bitter note. In Franconia occasionally even a somewhat smoky taste.
Because the colour of the beer is almost black as the night, the dark beer has been given the name black beer. This comes - brewed in the Bohemian style - originally from Saxony and Thuringia and was first mentioned in a document in 1390. After a real "thirsty streak", the beer was able to re-establish itself on the German beer market after German reunification. It is now also brewed in the Bavarian style, but throughout Germany it is still rather a "niche product".
