It really depends. A Siberian tiger is quite a bit larger than a black bear, and just as an adept hunter (probably better) as a black bear. Black bears are quite aggressive themselves, with the fact that they have to defend territories (males) or cubs (females) against other predators like other black bears, grizzlies, cougars, wolves and coyotes. And even humans.

However, such a fight can only be imagined because in reality, black bears and Siberian tigers never have nor will meet in the wild. So, in letting my imagination run wild, I would say that no, a black bear could not kill a Siberian tiger because the tiger is much larger and probably more fiercer than the bear, which gives it an added advantage in "defending" itself against such a bear.

Only one smaller, like a cub or yearling. Adult brown bears are too much for the black bear to handle. In fact, grizzlies sometimes kill black bears.
