darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Delicious. Dark, slightly sweet, some fruitiness. As the description says, it is very mild, but found it very drinkable, with a good aftertaste. Although it is mild and a bit thin, overall a good dunkel. Very tasty. theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2006
This beer could be a hit with a "whip out your Einbecker" campaign. Pours black with a small tan head. Its a dark red when held up to the light. All malt in the nose, a touch of chocolate and toffee. Very smooth and crisp, just the slightest touch of roasted flavor in the aftertase. Hints of coffee. Hop bitterness in the corner of the mouth. Very nice.

Pours near black with ruby hues. Aroma of rye bread, caramel, and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium, dry with lively carbonation. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Black cherry, currant- fruityish, candy sugar taste.Seems more Belgian than German, except for the palate- it is thin and crisp, easily downable. On Tap at Yard House, coral Gables. $6. PsychoGunnar (201) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Dark lager with thick, creamy foam. Feels like silk on the tongue until a bitter brussel sprouts/ruccola-like aftertaste kicks in. The main taste is creamy, soft and sweet, in the middle between pilseners and red ales.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red/brownish color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light cocoa/coffee, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light cocoa/coffee, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light cocoa/coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from hop/roast notes as well. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice Munich dunkel style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering. geologyguy (1645) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2016

Bottle. Moderate malty smell, a little bit nutty, sweet. Head-small size, very short longevity, off-white colour, virtually no lacing. Body-nearly black. The flavor is moderate bitter with a dark finish and a average duration. medium body, sweet on the palade with a lively carbonation and a bittersweet finish. Very nice one.

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.
