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.

A beautiful looking beer. The first dark beer that I ever drank. Rich and smooth with a lvery nice deep ebony color . You can sense the barley malt. A bottom-fermented lager that retains the properties of a lager beer. Better looking than tasting though.

solidfunk (6843) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 1, 2016
Not a ton going on here but it’s drinkable at least, and a little better than regular becks. Dark brown pour with ok head. Light tangy finish. Not offensive, just boring. Bottle at press club.

Onslow (1358) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Looks nice in the glass - clear ruddy dark color with one finger of dense tan head that settles to a persistent thin head. aroma has hints of roasted malts with a mineral / metallic overtone. Taste is sweet roasted malts up front and through the middle of the swallow but settles into a muddy sweet maltiness with metallic overtones at the end. No so good.

Bottle. Mahogany color with an off-white head. The aroma is slightly skunky. Flavor is roasted malt with a sweet but metalic taste on the finish.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Green bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a somewhat cloudy brownish amber with a small off-white head. Notes of grass, leaves, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, sugars, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, malty, damp mouthfeel. Not much to it. Inoffensive, and it works when you’re low on options.

hauxe (288) - Butzbach, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2015
Starts nice, but the sweet rich taste dulls and flattens as the bottle progresses. Hints of roasted malts. Mediocre.

ordybill (1171) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2015
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 (2227) - Alberta, 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.
