UPDATED: JAN 30, 2005 You know, this is an older bottle, and it seems to have suffered a bit of a drop off in aroma and flavor. I’m not going into a lot of detail. this beer does me right though. It’s got nice, rich malty flaves, the caramels, and sweetened malt-o-meal. Nice toffee aroma, with maple. I love the blackened grains, stark and bitter and smoky. Like an old curmudgeon in a comfy, malty recliner tossing hop flowers in the fireplace. I can’t wait to try some more schwarzbiers. I bet this is dynamite when it’s fresher.
Addendum: Smells a bit like old tree bark, and leather. Clearly sepia; beautiful transluscence with a healthy froth. The lace slips down easily like garters on prom night. Delicious malty darjeeling. Unsweetened baking chocolate, walnuts, dark brown sugar. Give me a pitcher with rye bread, radish, and a nutty, strong cheese. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2005

Syrupy, molasses nose; caramel-Coke color; foamy tan head. Full caramelly malt body, toffee, chocolate tones. Tight quick bitter. Impeccable balance. Mediumn body. Classy, sophisticated, great German dark. TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2007
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.

33 cl bottle at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg, on January 5, 2012dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 20, 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!
A pretty decent dunkel, definitely has the chocolate notes and a high degree of sweetness. Way less maltier than a schwarzbier. ebone1988 (1931) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2017

Taste is roasted malt, dry, anise, earthy hops, maybe light chocolate, old time candy, I really can’t put my finger on that flavor.
