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.

Another dud, dark but with properties of a lager that is pretty sweat although has this weird oily metallic taste but thats only if you get past the skunk smell when opening. Thought a dunkel needed decoction mashing where a portion of the grains are boiled and returned to the mash.? The term Dunkel means Dark however Tmav’y Czech or Slovak which is weird for a Bremen Germany brew.

Bottle, deep brown pour with a white head, slightly sweet with roasted malt and caramel but not much better than the light Beck’s.

Nice and strange for this brewery. The style almost same as the Bavarian ones although it is known for it’s pilsners.

12oz bottle at a greek resturant. Opaque black body topped with a thick, beige creamy head. Good malty aroma with light roasty hints. Malty/hoppy taste is well balanced. It carries roasty notes and ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish.

Bottle. Pours brown, with a off white head. Aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is slightly roasted malt, some sugar, and a little bit of hops. Not bad and easy drinking.

Has some redeeming qualities, but overall not worth your time. Starts with some chocolate, toffee and dark cherry flavors, but is upended by a bitter, metallic taste that reminds me of a dirty penny. Good carbonation but much to thin to handle the flavors.

Bottle on a little pontoon boat cruise watching Epcott’s fireworks show. Medium amber-brown in color and fairly thin. Small eggshell head. Aroma of roasted malts, metal, caramel, and toffee. The taste is similar with a decent malty bite. Medium body, light carbonation. Finish of caramel and toffee. Actually not too bad.

Medium brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of pilsner malt, tiny hint of cocoa. Flavor: grainy pilsner malt with a corn-like quality followed by a grainy/biscuity dryness, touch of baker’s chocolate, a little metallic hint in there. I recall having better bottles than this particular one, it might be a little old.

Wow this stuff is bad. Poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was just straigh skunk and nothing else. Flavor was skunk and mild toast/roast. Not surprised though.

Bottle at Oktoberfest. Pours a deep clear dark brown to black with a thin to medium sized white head. Roast and a little bit of cocoa on the nose. Medium-bodied a little bit of chocolate touch of malt and caramel. Cocoa chocolate a touch of coffee into a bit of bitterness and grain on the finish.
