4/5  rDev +6.4%

A: poured into a Pokal to a deep brown with a small off white head that retains well with a little lacing
S: smells of toasted malt and caramel
T: tastes of caramel, toasted malt, a little dark fruit, some hop bitterness. swallow is bready malt with some more caramel sweetness
M: on the lighter side but not watery with good carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: Very impressive with a lot of complexity and flavor without being a heavy hitting beer. Definitely a pleasure to drink.

(bottle code: L1039042L 11 - poured into a pilsner glass)

A: burgundy in color - not nearly at all black - very clear liquid... fizzy foam that settles into a thin island of suds

S: cola, root (beer), roasty malts and toasted aromas via decoction... dark fruits - prune, dried cherry - fairly bold, perhaps the intensity and character of which stems from oxidation? still smells appealing... a dry, moderately toasty bread crust... nothing hop-like

T: root, molasses... fair amount of lightly bittersweet of dark chocolate, bits of coffee grounds... overall taste falls in between a Dunkel and Schwarzbier, leaning toward the latter, lacking perhaps the dirtier depth of malt in the former... quite pleasant rounded bitterness in the finish, lingering through into the aftertaste

M: smooth and quite clean with a slightly silky slickness... little-to-no play from carbonation... overall, perhaps a touch thin for my taste

O: this bottle may very well have been a bit old, but the beer was still quite drinkable... downed it relatively swiftly... would love to try this fresher or on tap

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.
