COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The bottom fermented, dark Gösser Stiftsbräu is brewed according to old, inherited traditions. With a smoky, roasted nose and a thick and creamy taste on the palate, Stiftsbräu is a sophisticated delight for lovers of a slightly sweet, dark beer. The overall impression that Stiftsbräu creates is one of great harmony and well roundedness. 11.8°

Kita (1197) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Clear dark brown color with medium creamy tan head and average visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, coffee and mild herbal hops. Taste starts with light sweet roasted malt, followed by coffee and caramel notes, while finished with moderate bitterness. Medium body, smooth texture and soft carbonation in palate. Pretty good dunkel...

dnicolaescu (945) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 26, 2013
Head: beige, big, froth, poor retention. Colour: dark red-brown, clear. Aroma: malt, toasted dark bread, tart, burnt sugar. Taste: toasty bitterness, kvas-like tartness, some sweetness too. The flavour is suspiciously intense for such a light beer. Feels a bit luscious and fake.

bottle from Meinl am Graben, Wien. Clear dark brown colour, off-white head. Sweet and malty, lots of caramel. Very close to a Bohemian dark lager, i.e. very nice indeed.

KeefOz (968) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2013
Draught at Gosser Bierklinik, Vienna, Austria. Poured a nearly opague black with a red tint. Had a two-finger light brown foamy head that retained well and laced OK. Low to no carbonation. Aroma dominated by roasted grain. Taste heavily of roasted grain with a slightly bitter after-taste. Light to medium body. Long roasted grain finish. Quite nice.

sinte (366) - Udine, ITALY - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle 0.5 L. Clear dark brown body, with an average, creamy, tan head mostly lasting with some lacing. Moderate malty aroma (caramel, dark bread, roasted) with light notes of dired fruits. Flavour is malty sweet but comes to a bitter long finsh. Light-to-medium body with an oily texture; soft carbonation; some light metallic feeling in the finish. Overall nice beer.
