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.

larsniclas (5725) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2003
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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2003
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.

motelpogo (6947) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 22, 2003
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

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 13, 2003
Very intensive sweet honey, with roasted malt. Brownish with nice white head. Nice soft bitterness, light and fresh.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2003
Caramel and bitter woody scent. Deep ruby colour, small toffee head. The flavour is bitter as, as in bitters, tiny malt aftertaste. Well balanced, smooth, really interesting little Dunkel. Thank You Radek.

Gr0ve (2155) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2003
Beautiful dark red color. Aroma with some hints of cherry. Flavor is malty with notes of roasted barley. A great beer. Very drinkable.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2003
Sweet, malty aroma. Mouthfeel is quite nice, and the taste is solid; neither watered down nor exceptional. Bitter finish and chocolate--nice touch and an enjoyable beer.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2002
(Sampled bottle). Reddish brown colour, bread yeast and just a hint of coffee in the aroma. Flavour leaves you with the impression of drinking this beer in a bakery (this is not necessarily an insult to the beer - it’s probably an OK accompaniment with a few sandwiches or even Danish pastry). Drier than I expected. Not as good as the Einbecker Ur-Bock Dunkel (and not nearly as good as Aass Bock, which I enjoyed 1 hour earlier) - a bit watery, but still a drinkable dunkel that won’t offend anyone.
