Draft. I have a feeling there might have been something wrong with this keg. The dunkel showed a bit of sourness and other unpleasantry. Even putting that aside, the underlying flavor was unremarkable. Having sampled all the Einbecker brews available in the U.S., I would say this is the only one that falls short of brilliance.

Rather a faint shadow of my preferred black beers. The color tends toward red-brown, and the aroma was faint; the taste is properly dry but thin. Just average.

Einbecker Schwarzbier. Carbonated beer without much to distinguish the flavor. Very light malty accents.

obguthr (3833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Grain, molasses, and tea aroma with a tinniness. Clear and thin looking mahogany, with a thin head. Watery mouthfeel and very tinny. Pretty nice charred oak and malt flavor Weak lettuce finish. One could easily drink a lot of these without any ill effects.

Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2009
It’s dark brown with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of cabbage, malt and caramel. The flavor is slightly sweet and it has notes of malt, caramel and slightly dry citrus. Overall a bit on the thin side.

Nothing too impressive here, but this beer is great on a warm night as it is extremely drinkable. Good intro to darker beers for your budweiser drinking friends.

OmegaX (1255) - 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.

Ernest (6219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/husks, scorched caramel), with a light note of cardboard. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not much going on here, but then again it does smell a bit old. Never had much luck with this brewery’s stuff.
