Pours a dark copper brown with off white head. a little smell of caramel, bread and dark fruits. Taste is not much different with all of those pronounced and the darker grains and fruit in finish. A taste of kiwi in finish added a nice and surprising twist.

drowland (6754) - Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2011
8/21/11. Goofy shaped 11.2oz bottle. Brown pour, lots of red under light, with a big creamy tan head that cuts in half but lasts. Roasted caramel aroma with toffee and biscuits, unfortunately tainted by skunk. Decent flavor of caramel, medium toast malt, and toffee... but also a touch of skunk. The toasted caramel aspect really comes out. Not bad.

OmegaX (1340) - Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Notes of caramel sticky buns on the nose but very faint. Also grainy and slightly hoppy. Flavor followed. Not too bad. The pour is the best part - nice, clear, brown color with light brown, fluffy head.

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.

Dunkele rot-braune Färbung. Im Geruch röstmalzig. Geschmack röstig und leicht süßlich anmutend. Im Mittelteil kommen einige Bitternoten hinzu (die Bitterschokolade ist auch noch vorhanden). Gut gemachtes Dunkel aus Einbeck. Hat mir gefallen.Test vom 2.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

fluffy (1918) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2011
a rather biscuit-y straighforward dunkel, mild and unassuming. nicely balanced with a clean finish. just fine, though nothing special.

crossovert (9061) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-06-2010 02:28:41
