Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle at the Dolphin Hotel at Disney Orlando. Poured into an American shaker pint. Dark brown pour with little head. Rather thin looking. Aroma of malts, some toast and roast, dark bread, and hop profile. Taste was rather bland with a hint of roasted malts and some hops to balance. Kind of watery. Thin body with some carbonation. Pretty mediocre.

This is my absolute 2nd favorite beer! It tastes great! Its not as bitter as most dark beers. I just wish it was easier to find around here. I drive an hour just to get this beer!

BlackHaddock (7047) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2013
My 33cl bottle was bought in Berlin: so it is just a ’dunkel’ on the label. Poured into an ’Augustijn’ badged chalice at home on 26 Apr 2013. Ruby coloured body, clean and clear: beige, full head. The nose is more grainy than malty: with dark berry esters thrown in for good measure. The taste is maltier than the aroma hints at and those grain smells don’t appear in the flavours. Undertones of sweetness which don’t surface fully hide behind a mild hop crispness that doesn’t turn the brew bitter or overly dry. Interesting and one of the better German brewed Dunkels I’ve had so far.

The epitome of German dunkles. Solid full bodied crisp taste with a malty finish. Light fizzy creamy head.

In my area, this beer is sold as "Schwarzbier." Poured into a 12 oz. Pilsner glass. Appearance: Dark brown color with a reddish hue; looks like a Dr. Pepper. Absolutly no head at all, even with an aggressive pour. Smell: Toffee, caramel, dark chocolate and a slight sour note. Taste: Initially, roasted Munich malts and semi-sweet caramel with a coffee-like bitter flavor mid-way. Aftertaste yields a roasted almond flavor with a mild herbal hop finish. Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with more carbonation detected than what was visible. Overall: I’m a little confused because this beer has the qualities of a Munich Dunkel and a Doppelbock, but nothing like other Schwarzbiers-style beers I’ve had before. So, I stopped trying to analyze what type of beer it was and just enjoyed it. It’s one of those beers you can sip slowly and savor, or throw back several in one sitting. Whatever style it is, it’s another awesome brew from Einbecker.
