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.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 For a dark, it has a mediocre taste, and seems much too carbonated. The head is also weak, and it doesn't linger at all on the palate. I can't even recommend it for people just beginning to drink darker beers, but I will say that you can do much worse with other mass-market brews. Drink it in a pinch, that's about it.

Below, Axle3380 got it all wrong...ohhhhh he likes the regular...he sucks...drink the dark over the regular, a little bitter and also somewhat carbonated, but $2.75 for the 24 oz. bottle is the intriguing factor.

Another gateway-to-better-things beer. Actually I like it better than regular Beck’s. Lightish in flavor for the style. Good for drinking with meals.

Roasted malt aroma. Sour, bitter taste without much roasted flavor. Overall, a rather bland and watery beer.

For $1 a bottle at UNO’s the other night, it was great. Good taste, went down great.

Would not know that this is a dark beer by the taste alone, and that’s not good. Like St. Pauli Dark, looks a bit too much like Coke for my taste. Some feistiness, but dies quickly, especially in that clear glass bottle. Ugh.
