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.

Sad. Spent a long summer in Germany as a teenager and I remember loving Becks, Becks dark, Becks anything. Light brown pour with nice head. Aroma is musty and malty. Taste is what you would get with what I imagine drinking a good german dunkle cut with 1/5 water would be. Taste the malt and a little bitter hops. Not what I remember...

There was nothing else crafty on the menu, so went with this lager. The taste is smooth but nothing to repeat the selection again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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

Strongly resembles a Coca-Cola. Dark translucent red with a rapidly dissipating head with large bubbles rather than foamy. Smell like many light american lagers with a corn, wheat, and spruce hops. The malts are much more present in the taste than the aroma. Medium malts and cereal. Lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Very watery texture.

Gorgeous looking beverage that does not deliver on anything else. Distinct malty backbone but the rest is the cheapest of ingredients. You’ve done it again InBev.

EyeAmBaldman (310) - Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours dark translucent mahogany with an off white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet. Taste is mostly malt and grain with a slight hint of caramel. Not much to like about this 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.

Smooth Dinkel style. Not overly bitter or hopped. Makes a nice easy drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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