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.

kevnic2008 (9693) - 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.

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.

pivnizub (9296) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle: Clear, dark amber coloured; mid-sized fluffy off-white head; sweetish malty aroma, traces of roasted malts and molasses; dry malty, a bit chocolatey-bitter taste, ending dry with a distinct hoppy bitterness; quite light bodied, almost a bit watery, but otherwise rather decent.

crossovert (9190) - 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

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.

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!

(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.

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.
