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.

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.

Bottle at my in-laws on Christmas day poured into a glass, clear dark brown color with white head. Aroma of pale malt sweetness, grainy, semi-metallic, minimal light roast and some caramel. Taste adds some notes of cereal, faint chocolate and light hop balance. Light body, moderate carbonation, somewhat slick with faint roast finish. Not bad for a macro.

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.

EyeAmBaldman (368) - 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.

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.

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