look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 oz bottle poured into a shaker. $8!

S: Complex malty aroma with some Maillard products. A hint of spicey hops.

L: Light copper with good clarity. Small off-white head that did not persist.

T: Toasty with some caramel.
The subtle hop bitterness does not quite balance the lingering sweet finish. No hop flavour.

F: Quite smooth and full-bodied, with little carbonation.

S: rich malty aroma with bread crumbs, dark sugars, light malty fruit and a clean fermentation character.

L: It pours brilliant reddish brown copper filled with streams of bubbles leisurely rising to the surface and capped with a 1.5" cream colored layer of foam.

T: light sweetness balanced by mildly bitter hops leaving a lingering malty toast finish balanced between bitter and sweet. Over all the beer is malt forward .

F: with a medium to medium full body and carbonation slightly below average.

O: Einbecker Ur-Bock Dunkel is a classic dark bock.

The beer comes in a deep amber to amber brown color.

The aroma offers nutty breadiness, toasted malts, dark fruit, alcohol, lager notes, calming and smooth.

The flavor hits of nutty whole grain, toasted malts, a bit of caramel sweetness, a medium to medium plus mouthfeel, a bit of alcohol, a touch of hops to balance the beer. Nuttiness and lager character finish off the brew, with even a kiss of sweetness as well.

Initial aroma is a mix of munich malt, chocolate, and mild hops. Not overpowering. Pours a medium clear brown with a good head and initial signs of carbonation. Little to no lacing. A little metallic aroma arises after pouring. (Finally, to the taste....and by the way, isn't the taste what really matters ???) Comes across as a nice balanced bock with about the right sweetness level (not too much, not to little). This one has less influence on the dunkel style of beer. It come across primarily as a bock. A little lighter on the palate and easier going down the gullet than a doppelbock. That means I can drink more of them at a setting ! This beer was better than I was anticipating. I recommend you try this one out..

From 2012: Malty, sweet aroma and caramel/toffee in the flavor. Nice dark amber color with beige head. Slight bitterness on the finish. Light on the mouthfeel for what is a heavier style.

After pouring, the beer's color is similar to that of a cola, and it has a white head about one finger width.

The aroma is straight earthy malt.

The initial taste is extremely mild. In the middle, you can taste some maltiness, and the beer finishes smooth.

The mouthfeel is also extremely smooth.

There just wasn't much to this beer. It was a bit too smooth all the way around, and lacked the complexity that other Dunkels have.
