In my area, this beer is sold as "Schwarzbier." Poured into a 12 oz. Pilsner glass. Appearance: Dark brown color with a reddish hue; looks like a Dr. Pepper. Absolutly no head at all, even with an aggressive pour. Smell: Toffee, caramel, dark chocolate and a slight sour note. Taste: Initially, roasted Munich malts and semi-sweet caramel with a coffee-like bitter flavor mid-way. Aftertaste yields a roasted almond flavor with a mild herbal hop finish. Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with more carbonation detected than what was visible. Overall: I’m a little confused because this beer has the qualities of a Munich Dunkel and a Doppelbock, but nothing like other Schwarzbiers-style beers I’ve had before. So, I stopped trying to analyze what type of beer it was and just enjoyed it. It’s one of those beers you can sip slowly and savor, or throw back several in one sitting. Whatever style it is, it’s another awesome brew from Einbecker.

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pours a deep, dark copper with a thin, white head that quickly fades. Moderate lacing. Malty, carmel nose with hints of some spices. Creamy, but slightly thin mouthfeel. Sweet taste, but not as sweet as the doppelbock from the same brewery. Not bad, but not as good as their Ur-Bock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Not as rich in roasted flavor as the Kostritzer or Ettaler varieties, but still holds its own. Slightly watery with an unfortunately chemically sweetness.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2012
#386 Ein Dunkles mit rötlichen Funken. Ein zuerst hopfiges, dann doch typisch malziges Aroma. Im Antrunk eher leicht malzig und wenig rezent. Der Hopfen kommt im Abgang kaum vor. Insgesamt ziemlich frisches und wohlbekömmliches Dunkles aus Einbeck! Test vom 28.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,10,11,10,11,11 - 10,70

Bottle. Darkest brown with thin fast dissipating off white head. Light chocolate and malt aroma. Light bodied with a bit of chocolate and a hop tang. Speedy finish

schoolofchuck (135) - Kansas, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pronounced chocolate aroma along with the typical toasted oats cereal and earthy dampness of a dunkel. Some caramel and malt too. Mild bitter taste and sweetness. Reminds me of a bread-cake food item with some chocolate here and there.

A pretty decent dunkel, definitely has the chocolate notes and a high degree of sweetness. Way less maltier than a schwarzbier.
