COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 oz bottle at Billy’s on Troy Hill in Pittsburgh. Maybe it was the iced mug but I had trouble getting any taste out of this one. A definite skunkiness and musty odor didn’t help matters.

Dark is an over statement - but this has some redeeming qualities that make it something I could order in a pinch

Brown pour with a thin head. Aroma of copper. Creamy mouth that is slightly watery. Clean flavors overall, but not much flavor. Some caramel and that is it. Pretty uninteresting.

From notes: per the label, brewed at their facility in St. Louis, USA. Poured clear nut brown, with a thin, 1-finger off-white head that was gone quickly. Aroma was malty sweet, with a very slight skunkiness underneath. Medium body, slightly fizzy, with a brief, dry finish. Nutty malt flavor, with a bit of a metallic note underneath.

Sad. Spent a long summer in Germany as a teenager and I remember loving Becks, Becks dark, Becks anything. Light brown pour with nice head. Aroma is musty and malty. Taste is what you would get with what I imagine drinking a good german dunkle cut with 1/5 water would be. Taste the malt and a little bitter hops. Not what I remember...

Deep mohogany pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is a little skunked. Taste is a very light roasted malt, a tad bit watery. Crisp lager taste.

Pours a darker brown color that is rather flat with not much carbonation or head to it. The scent is slightly heavier than a cheap adjunct lager but not by much. The taste is rather light for being a dark colored beer. It’s basically a light colored German pilsner with a dark brown color added. Drinks rather smooth and easily as it has almost the same texture as water. Some grassy, cheap wheat taste stand out. At least it’s drinkable!

I really enjoyed this brew more than I initially thought I would. Makes a nice addition to any end of the summer camping trip. Straight from the bottle, so not sure how dark this actually is, but its nice and malty.

It tastes like regular beck with very distinct dark malt taste. Has that standard German beer hall taste. Lovely ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a dunkel, this isn’t all that great...until you remember that this is a Beck’s beer. For a Beck’s, not bad. Light roastiness, weak body, and next to no aroma.
