Drake (13171) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2009
11.2 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. US Schwarzbier label. The green bottle with an unmarked end date scares me. Pours a clear dark brownish red color with a medium tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, grain and raisin. Taste is toasted malts, grain, coffee, dark fruits. Thin bodied.

bierkoning (12886) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2003
Frothy head. Malty chocolate aroma and flavor. Sweetish with some licorice. Nice and easy beer with enough flavor, but lacks some "bite".

BeerandBlues2 (12570) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
Bottle. Pours pale black with a spare light brown head, mostly diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (caramel, nutty), light hops (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of soap. Light bodied, slick texture, light carbonation and a chalky finish. Light sweetness, acidity and bitterness; very bland beer.

thewolf (12300) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2006
Pours mahogany red with foamy off-white head. Lots of roasted aroma with a doughy feel. Not much mouthfeel - but a lot of roasted aftertaste with some chocolate tones.

crossovert (12002) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Einbecker Schwarzbier. 11.2 oz green bottle. Pop the top, it is only mildly skunky, but curse to the store who mishandled it. Pours a nice ruby/brown with a foam off white head that dissipates decently quickly. Smell is caramally and malty. Taste is light, caramally, slightly bitter with a kiss of hops and overall just insanely drinkable. Like all Schwartzbiers and Dunkels, it is at the height of beer drinkability but I would take a Koestritzer over this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-06-2010 02:28:41

kevnic2008 (11643) - 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.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Bottle. Barley - sweet corn syrup aroma. Dark brown with small head. Simple sugar and barley flavor. Not sure what trendiness has to do with the difference between dunkel and schwarzbier. This sample tasted on the old side as it was much sweeter than the typical dunkel - probably much better in Germany. Re-rate in Germany - actually a much light aroma and taste - much drier and hoppier. Very different but really can’t say I’d rate it much different - still not very impressive.
