Beck’s Dark is rich and smooth with a lingering, slightly sweet aftertaste. The deep ebony color is the result of specially roasting the barley malt. Unlike dark ales, Beck’s Dark is a bottom-fermented lager which creates a robust flavor and full body while retaining the refreshing properties of a lager beer.

Pours a dark translucent brown with a white head. Nose is nondeScript. Palate is slight roasted barley. There is no "slightly sweet aftertaste" as the propaganda states. Once again, this rendition of a good German beer is bastardized by brewing it in he USA. Hey, A-B/InBev, you cannot trade on reputation for long when the quality is gone.

There's a tad bit if complexity of this that I like, but maybe that's just compared to all the other Budweiser products I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour, big foamy head. Vaguely malty aroma: nice roastiness but a whole lotta adjunct. Flavor is very watery but has light roasty notes. Not offensive but just not very good.

Taste has significantly fallen since InBev took control of this one. At one point it had a decent aroma and taste, but now it is just bland. Not worth drinking. Rating 5 years ago would have been significantly higher.

12oz bottle - pours amber with offwhite head and decent lacing for a frosted pint glass. Nose is bready caramel. Flavor adds toast. Mildly sweet. Way too cold.

I had this beer about 15 months’ ago. It was outstanding! Great aroma, superb taste - truly a fine German beer. So, a month or so after, I bought a case. Terrible decision. It was not good at all. Found out that the good tasting beer was the last before Imbev got a hold of it. What a shame. Looks to be another Lowenbrau story in the Budweiser mold.

Green bottle..... surprisingly not skunked. Toasty sweet tea-like malt aroma. Chestnut with a large creamy beige head. Slightly sweet, toasty malt flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.

Pours dark brown, but nearly clear....short tan head. Aroma is slightly skunked, roast malt. Caramel malt, roast flavor...a little chocolate. Skunky staleness.... Maybe decent if fresh.

Bottle at ABC, the pour suggest a brew from these people that actually has a decent taste. Not really the case here, though the aroma is nice; leather, dank hops and light cocoa. The taste is dry, almost chalky cocoa with a touch of hops and a smooth malty finish. Not bad, just not good either.
