3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

Very intensive sweet honey, with roasted malt. Brownish with nice white head. Nice soft bitterness, light and fresh.

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.
