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.

Perhaps the ’dark’ is due to the addition of food coloring, because the taste does not reflect the use of any dark malts. Doesn’t differ much from regular Beck’s. Not one to buy if you’re in the mood for a dark beer.

Becks is just plain bad. Becks puts a tarnish on germany’s usually great beers. The flavor was poor.

Unimpressive, but tolerable.

A good dark beer, but not one of the best. Has a slight burnt nutty taste that stays around in your mouth a little too long. But, its still good and easy to find.

Very nice brown color, light lacey head. Smells very similar to regular Beck’s. Tastes very fuzzy, but there isn’t much complexity, a very slight burnt nuttyness. Not terrible, but there is other beer out there.

This is one of those beers that confuses me. I seem to keep drinking it (it’s one of the few darker beers available to me at the closest drug store to my house)but it isn’t like I’m in love with it or anything. Enjoyable, but there seems to be some strange almost burnty/medicine aftertaste to it that bothers me. Hmm. I’ll probably keep drinking it though.

Not too impressive. Deep, darkm cherry red with a nice off-white head. Slightly nutty taste and aroma, without much other taste. The aftertaste is what ruins this beer: grainy, and off-tasting. Otherise, not bad, just not very good.

There is a Chicago bar (Gentry on State) that I go to on Friday nights for social reasons -- certainly not for the beer selection (they have nothing on tap). Nonetheless, I look forward all day to my two bottles of Beck’s Dark, and although it’s hardly the world’s greatest beer, those two bottles do not disappoint. Positive associations, as muzzlehatch has pointed out, count for a lot.
