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°

Draft in Salzburg, Austria. As ’Gosser Schwarzbier’. Very dark beer with a frothy head. Smooth and light - not at all bitter. Very gentle coffee malt notes and distinct walnuts. Smooth dry finish. Lovely fresh tasty beer.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2007
Bottle, 4.5% in Rome. Weak caramel aroma. Mild bready flavour with a slightly roasted aftertaste and a hint of green apple. Clear dark brown colour. Unstable light brown head. Hint of sourness which does well to balance.

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle, as Gösser Dark Beer. A dark copper colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has a semi-pleasant blend of coffee and butterscotchy maltyness. Hints of dark chocolate too. The flavor has too much butterscotch and diacetyl, along with coffee, chocolate and caramel. Quite dry in the mouth, a bit sweetish sticky, and pleasantly carbonated. Medium body. Well, what can I say? It’s not bad, but it’s not my preferred choice of dunkel, and it doesn’t taste too good either. I think I’d go for an easier drinkable pale lager instead. 110523

Bottled (BB 01/2006)
Dark ruby, creamy tanned head, lace. Roasted, slightly caramelly and skunked hoppy aroma. Roasted, oaky malts. Toffee flavors with grassy hops. Oily, slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite sweet for a dunkel, maybe more vienna-like.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2007
Bottle. Sweet dark aroma of roasted malt. Dark amber color with a significant beige/tan head. Thin to medium body with creamy carbonation. Starts with sweet roasted caramel, has just a hint of smokiness, somewhat nutty. It’s sweet, but a sour note creeps out. The finish is caramel, and there is only the slightest amount of bitter. It’s clean. Somehow there is a long result that’s tending to dryness, but then the malt comes back. Pretty good.

Flöska: Clear dark brown colour, big bubbly rather short lasting dark beige head, not much lacing. Sweet roasty caramel bready aroma. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Roasty caramel and (rye) bready dark malty flavour, rather watery. Short lasting mild bitterness. Roasty caramel bready watery brew.
