Rustyham (1711) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Black cherry, currant- fruityish, candy sugar taste.Seems more Belgian than German, except for the palate- it is thin and crisp, easily downable. On Tap at Yard House, coral Gables. $6.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2004 Amber, with a wonderful offwhite head. Has a sweet aroma from toffee and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, some toffee there as well. Has a mild finish, a nice surprise.

Color is a bit off with a clear chestnut brown with a ruby-like glow within, the head more then made up for it though, solid, finger high, thick and firm off-white top that sat a good while before fading down to a thick skim, globby small lacing. Aroma is roasty and sweet of malts with some plum and raisin undertones. Flavors are sweet and lightly dry of a roasted quality that aren't withstanding some length or boldness, not that its really all that necessary for the style but it seems to be over quickly. There's some nice subtlities to the roastyness with toffee, caramel, dark fruits, and grasses that help keep its pleasing tone, the finish is fluffy clean and slightly dry which is nice as well. Slight metalic bittering sneaks in nearer the finish. Feel is lightly creamy with a smooth light carbonation and hold of drying qualities within its medium body. Its a nice little drinker, mild and easy.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2005 You know, this is an older bottle, and it seems to have suffered a bit of a drop off in aroma and flavor. I’m not going into a lot of detail. this beer does me right though. It’s got nice, rich malty flaves, the caramels, and sweetened malt-o-meal. Nice toffee aroma, with maple. I love the blackened grains, stark and bitter and smoky. Like an old curmudgeon in a comfy, malty recliner tossing hop flowers in the fireplace. I can’t wait to try some more schwarzbiers. I bet this is dynamite when it’s fresher. Addendum: Smells a bit like old tree bark, and leather. Clearly sepia; beautiful transluscence with a healthy froth. The lace slips down easily like garters on prom night. Delicious malty darjeeling. Unsweetened baking chocolate, walnuts, dark brown sugar. Give me a pitcher with rye bread, radish, and a nutty, strong cheese.

Syrupy, molasses nose; caramel-Coke color; foamy tan head. Full caramelly malt body, toffee, chocolate tones. Tight quick bitter. Impeccable balance. Mediumn body. Classy, sophisticated, great German dark.

TaxiDriver (1440) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle. Moderate malty smell, a little bit nutty, sweet. Head-small size, very short longevity, off-white colour, virtually no lacing. Body-nearly black. The flavor is moderate bitter with a dark finish and a average duration. medium body, sweet on the palade with a lively carbonation and a bittersweet finish. Very nice one.

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
