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

#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

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.

Idiosynkrasie (5327) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear reddish brown colour with small to average, frothy, minimally lacing, off-white head. Minimally sweet, dark malty aroma with a touch of cola, grainy overtones. Taste is dry, dark malty mith a metallic touch, more hoppy to the end.

Poured from green bottle, already a bad start, pours a dark amber with a thick off white head and some lacing, the skunk comes through as is expected on the nose, a little bit of sweetness, the flavor has a sweetness on the front end with a finish of straight skunk and old hops, ugh, not a fan.

330ml bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark amber with about a finger of light tan head. Aroma of skunk and malt. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Sweet malt, caramel, and some light hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I got it for a buck so I cant complain too much.

his was labeled a Schwarz bier, not a dunkle. Bummer. It poured a transparent brown allowing light thru. Schwarz bier does not. No head and a pleasant but average aroma. Taste was sweet from the malt with a better than average carbonation. Somewhat thin to average mouth feel. Aftertaste was ok.

A: Transparent caramel brown with faint amber highlights. The beer begins with bubbles frozen in a still life pose. The bubbles dissipate after a few moments, as the head fades to but a thin layer. The beer strongly resembles a cola. S: Sweet malt, distinctly German. I do admire when the aroma of a beer is indigenous to a state, country, or region of the world. Beer is universal. T: Notes of caramel, sweet malt (no roast character), subtle toffee candies. Overall, the beer is lighter than I would prefer. A certain amount of sweetness is expected, but this beer possesses a tad too much sweetness for my liking. M: Thin bodied with a fairly sticky and sweet feel near the finish. D: An ok beer, but definitely not my favorite representation of the style.
