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 (9998) - 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

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2003
Dark Brown colour with middling malty head, had from pressure tap in Trieste, Italy. Sweet malt flavours dominate although thinner than I expected. Highly carbonated, so much so that i was difficult to drink. Some bitterness but mostly balnd.

FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 27, 2007
UPDATED: APR 14, 2009 Rating is an average of 2.
500ml bottle.
Dark brown, slightly fizzy but no real head. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Fizzy in the mouth. The chocolate and sweetness carry over into the taste. Slightly watery and sweet. Slight blue cheese at the start of each mouthful . Nice burnt element, but could have been a lot better if brewed to a less kvassy strength. (5-3-7-2-10=2.7)
Rerate: (5-4-6-3-11=2.9)
Dark red, small head. Dry husky grainy aroma. Very dry palate. Simple dark lager - drinkable, but too drying to be a thirst quencher. Mostly malt, bugger all hops.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2008
Bottle: Ruby-amber coloured, firm, creamy off-white head; distinctive aroma of dried fruits, backed by malt and molasses; sweet flavour, light bodied; mild sweet-fruity finish with a bit of salt in the aftertaste. A two-times diluted Doppelbock, still tasty......
