Structurally, this beer is well put together. Nice color, much like brown ale, medium darkness. Can see through it. Head is nice and creamy and the bottle which seems to be showing its age, still had plenty of head. The aroma is not great. There’s a good amount of metaillic smell to this one. What’s left is honey notes and some roasted barley. Light mouthfeel, light roasting flavor, more honey and generous metallic flavor. Ends very metallic. I don’t think this is a good example... it really seems as though the beer is just too old. That or I got the first bottle ever brewed from 1378.

Poured from green bottle, already a bad start, pours a dark amber with a thick off white head and some lacing, the skunk comes through as is expected on the nose, a little bit of sweetness, the flavor has a sweetness on the front end with a finish of straight skunk and old hops, ugh, not a fan.

Nothing to write home about here. Starts off bitter caramel, but flavor actually improves as it warms slightly. Maybe it’s just an acquired taste, but maybe it’s not too good. Guess I have five more tries to figure that out.

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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2003
33 cL bottle, goblet, 48 degrees. Tall, slowly diminishing, tan head sits above a deep brown (practically black) body. Dark chocolate, walnut malt; flower, herb hops; doughy yeast. Light port and dark fruit aromas. Weak flavor is lightly sweet and finishes lightly bitter. Some woody note in the short finish. Watery, med-light body, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: not too pleasant of a beer altogether.

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.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
pale for a schwarz, clear auburn with a irregular off-white head. Coffee grains and dirty soil earthiness. Very grainy palate, watery and a bit bland. Total void in the finish, slight herbs and nothing else, light bodied, moderate carbonation, average stuff..

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

obguthr (4589) - 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.
