crossovert (6927) - 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

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2003
Sweet, malty aroma. Mouthfeel is quite nice, and the taste is solid; neither watered down nor exceptional. Bitter finish and chocolate--nice touch and an enjoyable beer.

Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark brown/blackish with a decent tan head. No lacing but my glass was pretty wet. Wonderful licorice sorta anise aroma. I really love the smell of this brew. My wife hates it. I’m like...molasses...and she chimes in "poop". What does she know? Mellow flavors, a bit chocolatey, malty. Dry. I dig it.

Bottle. Tested 11/1-06. Dark red colour, with a nice white creamy foam. Lots of sweet roasted maltyness in the aroma, and a nice bitternes in the backround. Medium creamy malty body, with a nice dry bitter finish.

330 ml green bottle labeled Schwarzbier, pours a clear mahogany color with a thick and foamy tan head and a lasting lace. Big malty aroma. Medium body and full mouthfeel. Very chocolatey flavor dominates. Clean finish. Not a dry as some dunkels but very flavorful.

Kristall-König (2187) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2011
Dunkele rot-braune Färbung. Im Geruch röstmalzig. Geschmack röstig und leicht süßlich anmutend. Im Mittelteil kommen einige Bitternoten hinzu (die Bitterschokolade ist auch noch vorhanden). Gut gemachtes Dunkel aus Einbeck. Hat mir gefallen.Test vom 2.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

gnoff (7663) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2012
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!

A pretty decent dunkel, definitely has the chocolate notes and a high degree of sweetness. Way less maltier than a schwarzbier.
