Clear dark amber with a nice off-white head that reduces to a rim-covering; light splotches of lace. Bittersweet caramel gives way to......not much. Actually, a rather easy drinking dark beer lite, but by the time I reached the finish all yhat was left was watery carbonation. Probably would be good for a long session. kevnic2008 (12002) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2012
Pours a foggy wood brown, with a light tan frogs’ eggs bubbly head. OK label. Sweetish cereal aroma. A little tinny, tangy, sweet.. Flavor is dominated by the malting. Tannic, woody, sweet aftertaste. Medium beer. Decent, perhaps a little plain. KlextonGaze (60) - Franklinville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2012
.33 to snifter starts as cola with tan head diminishing to thin rim huggin lace. Somewhat shy of anticipated depth by color with first whiff, but in mouth decent roasty cocoa n fig opens. Again thin and rather short ending semi-dry and a touch smoky. Not horrible choice overall however. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2012
Dark amber color with small head. Caramel aroma. Flavor is roasted but a little to thin.

0.33 L bottle poured into a glass.
The smell is not overpowering, but is a little chocolaty.
This beer has a red/brown color that you can see through with a white top.
It has a nice kind of fruity taste with decent aftertaste that says with you for a while.
This beer would be great for someone that can’t easily drink a "normal beer" as it has a sweeter taste than many other beers out there. It is also good for someone who wants a change from that typical beer taste you get a lot. Overall it was quite refreshing and much better than my Duff beer in the refrigerator. haha gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2012
33 cl bottle at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg, on January 5, 2012crhensel (145) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2012
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!
(Bottle into dimpled mug) I was rather surprised by this one. I expected a Schwarzbier to be black and heavy on the roast, to the point where I could taste it. This had none of that. The pour was a dark, deep brown, which is attractive, but when you can see through to the bottom of the glass, schwarz it is not! A thin head formed then was gone almost immediately. There was no real aroma I could put my finger on. There was a hint of a roast and a little pepper, but nothing remarkable. The drink itself was very disappointing. I expect something of this style to be a little thicker and have bold flavor.
Upon letting this one sit for a while to warm, I found that the flavors did develop nicely and there was a bit of a caramel malt that came out and gave this some character. Still not my favorite, but not too bad afterall! TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2012
Pours a medium tawny, with a light brown head.
Malty aroma, medium roast, heavy caramel, fudge, hops, butterscotch.
Dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty taste, medium toast, caramel, fudge, hops, quite spicy, hints of ashes in the finish. (2011-12-26) SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2011
