3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium tan head with small-medium bubbles. The lacing was sparse on the sides of my mug. I had a hard time trying figure out the aroma with this brew. It had a smooth taste to it and no bitterness was noticed. It seemed to be on the watery side. In my opinion this brew lacks character and I was not very impressed with this drink.

Very small light tan head.Medium brown color.Hard to get a strong aroma off this one so it would have to be,mildly malty and i can just pick up some sweetness as well.Nice malty taste medium sweet slightly hoppy a bit thin in feel.Seems to be well carbonated.I just detected a slight metallic smell coming at me just as you lift the glass high enough to drink,but it doesn't show in the flavor.The after taste is malty sweet with a very faint hop presence.Nothing special just a run of the mill brew.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a medium head of fine to medium sized light brown bubbles and a semi-opaque brown body. It has a nice mild malty aroma. Its flavor is a bit fizzy for a Dunkel and mild with hints of malt and lacking any real distinctive flavor.

burnt malt nose that progresses to the fragrance of a cheap red wine sweetness. black in color with powerful red hues forcing through to form a nicely contrasted black red color. starts sweet, goes towards burnt bread/black malts flavor. clean finish with some woody notes and light malty sweetness. very light yet packed nicely with flavor

I must admit, I have been spoiled in this department. I couldn't tell the bottle was green until I poured it, a very deep mahogany body. Like a very tame dopple, sweet and grainy, mildly roastey, super smooth. A bit of dry nuttiness. Pretty flat and watery though. It is pretty characteristic of a lager though, clean and crisp with a woody dry, dark malt finish

Draft. I have a feeling there might have been something wrong with this keg. The dunkel showed a bit of sourness and other unpleasantry. Even putting that aside, the underlying flavor was unremarkable. Having sampled all the Einbecker brews available in the U.S., I would say this is the only one that falls short of brilliance.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2004 Draught at The Rover, Gothenburg, Sweden.
A rocky, longlasting head but not much of an aroma.
A bit burnt i the flavour and it gives you a chalky palate.

Deep brown with a hintof garnet. Small rich looking light tan head. A true dark lager aroma. Very smooth feel almost to a point of feeling watery. Light bitterness throughout the quaff. Hints of butternuts and light sorgum. Dry dark malt finish. Seems more watery as it warms, but a nice for style brew.

light and lagery and surprisingly soft for a dunkel. hard to believe this bears any relation to the einbecker dunkelbock. hint of molasses but otherwise more skullable than interesting
