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°

ThreeCats (529) - ISRAEL - FEB 19, 2012
Deep amber brown with off white head that sinks fairly quickly. Smell of plum/raisin, malt and caramel. Tastes like nothing special. A bit of bitterness that carries into the palate and very little flavor. Disappointing.

ccex (891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours a trasnpared dark brown (red when held up to a light) with a small off-white head. Smells of caramel. Aroma is mostly cramel and malts. Has a medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet to begin with but has some bitterness in the finish. Nothing here to complain about, but nothing too memorable either.

A transparent, dark brown lager. Smells nice and smokey. Sweet caramel taste with bitter middle and cloying finish. Medium body. More smoked lager than dunkel.

Wolfbass (864) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 6, 2011
Avevo bisogno di digerire, e questa dunkel ha fatto discretamente la sua funzione... Comunque molto bevibile, nonostante sia molto malto burrosa, sia al naso che in bocca.

Countbeer (4065) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle: Pretty big light brown yellow tan ish head, which disappears quick, on top of a dark clear brown beer with a ruby shine. Smell is a light mix of roasted grains, darker fruit like raisin, oatmeal and herbs. Taste is light sweet with a bit more bitterness and hints of grains, malts, corn, barleys, a hint of darker fruits, something hoppy, herbs and nuts. Light sweet bitter herby darker aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium bit warery body and a light creamy texture. Unfortunately a bit watery otherwise  this would be a nice dunkel.
