Your Daily Pint for Saturday, Oct. 3, 2014, is: NEUZELLE KYRITZER MORD UND TOTSCHLAG
What it is: A 7.2%-ABV porter-schwarzbier hybrid
What it tastes like: Smoky like a rauchbier, sturdy like a porter; the best of both worlds! Roast that’s equal parts grainy, coffee and chocolaty keeps fluid, meaty smoke anchored to the profile. You can just tease out some boozy spice at the back of the not lager-thin, not imperial-porter-thick swallow.
What’s in a name?: It’s German for “murder and manslaughter.” :(
A little history: The style was originally brewed for Germany’s knights of Kyritz an Der Knatter in the 17th century. Prost!
