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°

Koelschtrinker (16330) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Cremig malziger Antrunk, ins röstmalzerne gehend. Zum Mittelteil steigern sich die Aromen, das Bier wird cremiger, malziger und deutlich würziger. Dunkel malzern und leicht schokoladig geht es in den Nachgeschmack. Ein süffiges Dunkles mit langem röstmalzigen Finish, und das bei 4,2 Volumenprozent - Spitzenbier! Test vom 23.7.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,13,13,12,10,12 - 12,10

bhensonb (13742) - 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.
