MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2005
(bottle) Dark brown to amber colour with a steady foamy off-white head. Shy nose of nuts and roasted malts. Soft bittersweet flavour. Only light to medium bodied, sharp carbonated. Slight taste of roasted malts with notes of coffee and an unexciting dry and hoppy finish.

Not a schwarzbier as it was described at Paradiso. Pours a clear deep red with a thin, off-white head that leaves no lace. Aroma is maraschino cherries. Taste is black cherry soda. Very easy to drink. Light-bodied. Very doppelbock like- too weak for a schwarzbier and no roast character. Not sure why that would be a "trendier" label if it’s just plain incorrect.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2009
11.2 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. US Schwarzbier label. The green bottle with an unmarked end date scares me. Pours a clear dark brownish red color with a medium tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, grain and raisin. Taste is toasted malts, grain, coffee, dark fruits. Thin bodied.

bottle, danke nach Bochum. Clear dakr colour with a mid-sized off-white head. Malty, hints of caramel and chocolate. Nice.

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Wow, I thought this was a scwarzbier. Pours clear dark brown/ruby with a creamy, white head. Aroma of malt, hops, fruit, corn flakes. Tastes of roasty malt, cabernet, slight nuts. Finishes malty, with some chocoff and nuts. Medium palate. Not an elite beer, but a very drinkable one. I’d buy this again, and for a buck a bottle at Half Time, I’ll definitely be seeing this one again.

gnoff (7671) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2012
33 cl bottle at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg, on January 5, 2012
BB 12.07.12
Clear dark reddish brown color, medium lasting tan to light brown head. Malty, grainy, some fudge scent. Malty, fudge, sweet, somewhat berry taste, some minerals that throws me off. Malty aftertaste. Medium to moussy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Very nice, very drinkable, I’ve had it before and I’ll buy it again fro sure!
Nicely done Einbecker!

kevnic2008 (7649) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2012
Pours a foggy wood brown, with a light tan frogs’ eggs bubbly head. OK label. Sweetish cereal aroma. A little tinny, tangy, sweet.. Flavor is dominated by the malting. Tannic, woody, sweet aftertaste. Medium beer. Decent, perhaps a little plain.

shrubber85 (7314) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Bottle. Barley - sweet corn syrup aroma. Dark brown with small head. Simple sugar and barley flavor. Not sure what trendiness has to do with the difference between dunkel and schwarzbier. This sample tasted on the old side as it was much sweeter than the typical dunkel - probably much better in Germany. Re-rate in Germany - actually a much light aroma and taste - much drier and hoppier. Very different but really can’t say I’d rate it much different - still not very impressive.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Dark brown, almost black with a thick off-white head. Thick caramel and chocolate German malt aroma. Chocolate malt and earthy grains are most dominant. Finish is sugary sweet, but a little thin, otherwise a pretty good schwarzbier.
