The color is somewhat light for a "schwarzbier", being a pretty dark amber; the aroma is fairly strong in maltiness; flavor is light yet malty, with a little smokey-burnt bitterness offsetting the mild sweetness, no hop flavor to speak of; fairly smooth and somewhat dry finish. Pretty good.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2004
330ml bottle labeled Einbecker SchwarzbierPoured an ice tea color brown with a thick head that is slowly settling down. Aroma is slightly roasted with a note of caramel. Body is a bit on the flat side. Flavor is a bit sweet and a bit weak also. Finishes dry. Overall very average and not worthy of future consumption.

Color is a bit off with a clear chestnut brown with a ruby-like glow within, the head more then made up for it though, solid, finger high, thick and firm off-white top that sat a good while before fading down to a thick skim, globby small lacing. Aroma is roasty and sweet of malts with some plum and raisin undertones. Flavors are sweet and lightly dry of a roasted quality that aren't withstanding some length or boldness, not that its really all that necessary for the style but it seems to be over quickly. There's some nice subtlities to the roastyness with toffee, caramel, dark fruits, and grasses that help keep its pleasing tone, the finish is fluffy clean and slightly dry which is nice as well. Slight metalic bittering sneaks in nearer the finish. Feel is lightly creamy with a smooth light carbonation and hold of drying qualities within its medium body. Its a nice little drinker, mild and easy.

It's ok for a schwarzbier I suppose, nothing special really leaps out at me though.

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark brown. A soft nutty maltiness makes this feel well balanced.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2004 Amber, with a wonderful offwhite head. Has a sweet aroma from toffee and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, some toffee there as well. Has a mild finish, a nice surprise.

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Crystal clear, mahogony lager with a large frothy, off-white head. Good lacing Both the flavor and aroma seem to be lightstruck. Skunky. Better flavors and aromas to note: chocolate, maple syrup and yeast. Well-hopped. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish. Just can't get past that skunkiness!

A very good German dark beer. Nice dark brown to black color with a slightly sweet chocolatey flavor. Good stuff.

Beautiful dark brownish red. Sugary aroma. When touched to the lips, a definite butterscotch taste. Followed by some caramel and chocolate. Frothy head which disapates rather quickly.
