3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: medium reddish-brown with a short, off-white fizzy head and very little lace. Aroma: dark brown bread, notes of brown sugar, nuts, toast, and a hint of smoke. Taste: notes of cinnamon toast, sauteed nuts, rootbeer, toffee and dark malts, with a hint of chocolate and licorice. Finish: Sweet, crisp, slightly metallic and tangy. Notes: Sweet, toasty, lightly drinkable but a little oily in the palate. The only off note was in the finish. I like a good schwarzbier, and this was pretty good. No comparison to a Kostritzer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Einbecker Schwarzbier. 11.2 oz green bottle.
Pop the top, it is only mildly skunky, but curse to the store who mishandled it.
Pours a nice ruby/brown with a foam off white head that dissipates decently quickly.
Smell is caramally and malty.
Taste is light, caramally, slightly bitter with a kiss of hops and overall just insanely drinkable.
Like all Schwartzbiers and Dunkels, it is at the height of beer drinkability but I would take a Koestritzer over this.

Bottle. This is a pretty good beer. Better than the ratings it is receiving. I know I am favored to these styles beers but to me it was good. Really dark in color. Nice head and lace. Wonderful nutty malt flavor. Slight toast aroma with a tax of coffee. Good stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Dark amber in appearance, obviously not a schwarzbier. Middle of the road dunkel, not horrendous, but too watery and not enough malt punch to it.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Dark red/brown body with a two finger tan brown head. Brown malted lager aroma. Dark brown lager flavor that’s light to medium bodied. Pretty smooth beer with a dark malted but fairly light finish.
