330ml bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark amber with about a finger of light tan head. Aroma of skunk and malt. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Sweet malt, caramel, and some light hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I got it for a buck so I cant complain too much. doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2012
his was labeled a Schwarz bier, not a dunkle. Bummer. It poured a transparent brown allowing light thru. Schwarz bier does not. No head and a pleasant but average aroma. Taste was sweet from the malt with a better than average carbonation. Somewhat thin to average mouth feel. Aftertaste was ok. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2012
A: Transparent caramel brown with faint amber highlights. The beer begins with bubbles frozen in a still life pose. The bubbles dissipate after a few moments, as the head fades to but a thin layer. The beer strongly resembles a cola.
S: Sweet malt, distinctly German. I do admire when the aroma of a beer is indigenous to a state, country, or region of the world. Beer is universal.
T: Notes of caramel, sweet malt (no roast character), subtle toffee candies. Overall, the beer is lighter than I would prefer. A certain amount of sweetness is expected, but this beer possesses a tad too much sweetness for my liking.
M: Thin bodied with a fairly sticky and sweet feel near the finish.
D: An ok beer, but definitely not my favorite representation of the style. McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Mahagony brown ruby-black colour with a light tan head. Aromas of subtle roast nalt, bitter chocolate and coffee traces. Tangy, savoury and delicate. Mouthwatering dry bitter roasted malts. Starts off a bit bitter and develops some sweetness but which is quickly overlayed by more yet subtle malty bitterness. This is making it all pretty well balanced. Bit thin and touches of oliyness. Got a dryness to it and leaves a mouth watering finish. This is simple and simply ace! A beer for all occasions from important ones to not so important ones. Goes good with many foods as well and can be used for cooking. Versatile and very enjoyable.

Backing up from a fight with RB, as this is a dunkel and not a schwarz. Earthy caramel and fig aromas. Standard clear brown. Sweet syrup taste, with some bitter bit that contributes to a cola-like body. Stale aftertaste. Okay beer.

Die Schaumkrone hält ziemlich schlecht. Es schmecktleicht blumig, wässrig im Nachgeschmack leicht dunkelmalzig, zu mild und wässrig und viel zu eintönig langweilig. Fazit: Einfach nur langweilig!

Einbecker Schwarzbier has a very thick, creamy, beige head, with some lacing and a clear, brown appearance, with tiny streams of bubbles. The aroma is of sweet, medium-toasted barley, brown bread, a little chocolate and coffee, and whiff of hops. Taste is similar, with a subtle added dark cherry aspect. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Einbecker Scwarzbier finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and highly drinkable. Simply an outstanding beer. RJT

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2012 brown with small head. roasted caramel maltiness with hint of sweetness, but almost tart on the finish. fairly complex and interesting. smooth. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2012
Einbecker Schwarzbier. Unique shaped, green, 0.33L bottle. Dark brown color, light tam foam. Dark enough for a Dunkel, nowhere near as dark a trendier Schwarzbier, for sure. Aroma of toasted barley malt. some floral aroma hops. Tastes of roasted barley, some burnt caramel, earthy leaves, and a hint of skunk. Finishes with a touch of licorice bitterness. Soft, lighter bodied. (3312) Cybercat (5831) - Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours a nice clear Coca-Cola brown with a fairly thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent pale tan head. Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of pear and is on the sweet side. Flavor has a malty core and tones of caramel, licorice and fruit and a hint of grass. Smooth texture has a decent amount of fizz and about average body. Overall, not outstanding but definitely worth a try.
