2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE TASTED: October 12, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: celebrating PSU’s unBILLeivable comeback against Michigan--and my son’s fifth birthday... APPEARANCE: "dark" velvet black as night body with a brownish roadside snake-colored head; lacing is nonexistent, with a random streak or spot... AROMA: classic Beck’s ping/tang hops with a doughy funky roundness; a "dirtier" version of the pilsner...PALATE: slick and oily; lightly bodied with subtle activity at the teeth...TASTE: bready, doughy and slightly malty; light hops do not really add balance or memorability...OVERALL: on the plus side, sessionable and autumnal; on the negative, almost indistinguishable from the Oktoberfest, save the presence of extra doughy malts...

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

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
