Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

It's been years since I've had something from Einbecker, so I'm interested to see how my feelings have evolved. This stuff pours a clear smoky topaz topped by a finger of charred cream foam. The nose comprises mild roast, light toast, and a touch of cashew. The taste intensifies the roast a bit and replaces the cashew with a bit of rubber. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an odd little schwarz, really. The rubber character is pretty off-putting, but the rest seems to finish rather cleanly. I have no idea how old this bottle isw, so perhaps age has had an effect, but it seems fresh enough, just lackluster.

Tawny color with brown hues. Light tan head with moderate density and medium+ retention.

Light roasted coffee and toffee notes. Moderate malt richness with a subtle lactic note.

The roasted flavor deepens on the palate. Slightly smoky with a moderate bitterness that is well integrated with the malt. Medium length with caramelized notes that linger on the finish.

Medium- body that is slightly watery in texture.

Nice beer for the style.

This is one of the nice dunkel German beers. I enjoy one of these after a hot day of riding steam trains. This beer on has a bit too much bitterness for me. It has a nice balance of hops to dark malt something that is not easily accomplished. If served cold it has a wonderful head and one of the nicest aromas of the dunkel beers.

My 33cl bottle was bought in Berlin: so it is just a 'dunkel' on the label.

Poured into an 'Augustijn' badged chalice at home on 26 Apr 2013.

Ruby coloured body, clean and clear: beige, full head.

The nose is more grainy than malty: with dark berry esters thrown in for good measure.

The taste is maltier than the aroma hints at and those grain smells don't appear in the flavours. Undertones of sweetness which don't surface fully hide behind a mild hop crispness that doesn't turn the brew bitter or overly dry.

Interesting and one of the better German brewed Dunkels I've had so far.

This Schwarzbier is a dark-red color, transparent, with a slightly tanned neck. The aroma emanates caramelly malt tones with vigor, with noble hopes in the background. The taste displays medium carbonation, the same caramel, and coffee tones. The sensation is very refreshing, and very soft, and the taste is super fast - the beer slides fast in the palate. The aftertaste is malty and shows noble hops. Definitely a good pick for the end of Winter.
