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.

Dark mahogany in colour. Sweetish nose, marginally malty. dryish finish with some bitterness. That could be a good start of a review, but unfortunately it ends there, and that is because there is nothing more to say about this beer. (That is the long way to say one-dimensional...)

cgarvieuk (15169) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2009 Bottle at Detroit airport pre DLD trip... Never seen the dark so though what the hell... Maybe a mistake as this was the 7th bottle i had 1/2 of at Detroit airport in an hour... the alcohol hadnt got into me properly yet, but it did during the fligth and did i feel way rough when i arrived at Goose Islad a few hours later ... any way onto the beer ... brown ... sweet lager toffee malt nose ... quite toffee .. some lager hop ... really not great. ..

Re. Zoso137 ... i do wear top hats but have never had one filled with Candy

A bit of malty aroma, a bit of bitter flavor -- that should scare off mose of the macro-loving population, but it’s not enough to attract those of us who like the good stuff.

bhensonb (11510) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Aroma is of dark roasted malt, but it seems to have grassy hop as well. Very dark mahogany color with a white head that filmed immediately. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Seems to be flavors of dark caramel and grassy hop. The finish is primarily light hop bitter. Sort of a thin, dark, roasted lager. Sort of dunkel light.

Koelschtrinker (11049) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Sehr milder Antrunk, röstig. Im Mittelteil aromatischer werdend, ebenso im Abgang. Trotz der Intensitätssteigerung wirkt das Bier etwas langweilig und vor allem austauschbar. Test vom 23.9.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 10,8,9,8,-,8 - 8,36
