A very good Dunkel that is thoroughly warming to the innards. Beautiful dark amber body covered by a great tan head that diminishes quite slowly, but leaves a little less lace than one expects from such a great head display. A big nose gives off both malt aroma and a slight hop sense. The taste is nicely bitter in the front, but gives interesting hints of a barley wine character on the lips. This beer strains to keep itself from being too sweet and thick. The full body and fairly high ABV limit its drinkability to a large degree. Creamy smooth in keeping with the barley wine nature of its alter ego. Tasty, warming, and filling. Strong, lasting aftertaste, again, much like a barley wine.

Note: this comes in a dark green bottle and there was the slightest hint of skunk on the open, none in the pour.

Translucent copper with a frothy white head... settles to about 1/4 inch. Sweet carmel malt aroma with a touch of herbal hops. Flavor was very much on the sweet side with carmel being the dominant flavor... almost cloying... with only slightly herbal notes offer a little balance. Syrupy and thick, with medium carbonation. The sweetness and thickness lower the drinkability.

Better than the Urbock hell. Low head. Pleasant malty / toffee aroma. Slightly nutty flavour. Strong alcohol presence, fairly well balanced with the malts and hops. A decent bock, but not as good as the Norwegian ones (esp. Aass).

Quite a herbal nose, mixed in with a bit of a dark malt character ( bit of chocolate, bit of roastiness). Quite a sticky malt start, syruppy texure and a bitter herbal flavour, not as good as the Urbock Hell i think, i think the paler malts worked better.

Pours with a beautiful just off-white rocky head, topping light brown/amber liquid. Nose is of sweet malt, natch. Very appetizing too I might add. Taste is superb, lightly sweet malt followed by an almost dominating hop bitterness. Hops win out in the finish, with the maltiness of the grain creating an interesting interplay on the palate. This is one of the classics here, boys! The not-so-heaviness makes this beer very easy to drink plenty of. The original Bockbier, try it if you see it. Well worth the $8 I paid for a sixer. Tastes all the much better out of the "official" Einbecker Ur-Bock glass, to boot!
