3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Nice flavored brew! The palate is a little thin, but the flavor isn’t overly malty like I was expecting. An overall unexciting brown ale tasting beer. Original rating 2.8 11/25/05 12;27am. Re-rate- Oh wow this beer has an interesting aroma. kinda green bottle funk mixed with smoked wood. Tastes as cool as it smells. Dark red appearance, full bodied with a great mouthfeel. Smooth and crisp with just the right amount of carbonation. Big malty flavors dominate, but it is perfectly proportioned w/ hop balance. Low abv means great session brew...prob w/ smoked meats.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red/brownish color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light cocoa/coffee, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light cocoa/coffee, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light cocoa/coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from hop/roast notes as well. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice Munich dunkel style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

En lidt tynd "dunkel", hvilket er en skam da Einbeck normalt laver nogle gode bitre øl. Denne er lidt flad i smagen, dog med en god lang eftersmag.
Kom igen Einbeck.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft as the trendier schwarzbier. Dark brown color, beige coca cola head. Aroma of malted milk balls. Taste has cocoa and coffee, light body. I guess we need a "trendy" tag.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel, a hint of dried fruit, bread, maybe some slight smoke or something like that. Very refreshing, but with some flavor as well.

Bottle, somehow put in their schwarzbier bottle. I get dark fruits (plums), caramel, and some roasted malts. Taste is sweet finishing dry.
