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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

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.

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.
