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.

Poured a medium brown with a offwhite head. Aroma was light malt with german hop aroma and some skunk. Flavor was light toasted malt, german hops and a bit of skunk.. Light to medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Starts nice, but the sweet rich taste dulls and flattens as the bottle progresses. Hints of roasted malts. Mediocre.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Pub in Gettysburg, PA. This is a complete disappointment. The beer is a dark brown with a tan head and has a metallic odor to it. The flavor is dull and flat with a metallic flavor mixed with some malt, completely forgettable.

Beck’s Dark from a bottle. Dark mahogany with very good clarity. Decent head. Mild aroma with a flavor that is a bit better but also mild. O: Decent except too mild.

Cola-colored pour with a tan head. Sweet aroma, candied vegetables of some kind. Lightly sweet malt flavor, no real hops anywhere.

DeanF (1939) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Some modest head and a darker copper body. Soft barley aroma with hints of coffee and barnyard. Flavour is brown sugar with a watery finish. Very blah, very Beck’s.

joejames (388) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear caramel in color, one finger quick head. Slight lacing, no retention. Aroma of caramel. Taste is mainly sweet with a slight bit of earthy bitterness. Light bodied, lively carbonation, mouth feel is thin. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of caramel, roasted malt, weak coffee, grass and flowers. Drinkable yet forgettable.

I prefer this over the regular Beck’s. It has more of a dark brown appearance, sort of like a porter. More flavor, mainly of chocolate malts and caramel.... sweeter than the regular. Seems a bit smoother and crisper too. Aroma is slightly skunky, but the taste makes up for it. Whenever at a restaurant ordering and they say they have Beck’s, if that’s the best they have, I always ask if they have Beck’s Dark. They usually won’t say off the bat, but worth asking in case they carry the dark.
