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°

The aroma was WOW, malty and chocolately with a strong depth of character and a nutty and toasty Munich malt presence. The aroma had a light bit of spicy hop nature and even a light smoky phenolic. Complex and interesting! The beer poured into the glass crystal clear amber brown with a beige/tan well lasting head which rose tall and fell very slowly to lace the glass. The flavor was nicely malty with more toasty and nutty Munich malt characteristics and a lightly spicy hop character with decent bittering which kept the caramel of the malt in check. The flavor contained a light bit of that same smoky phenolic which added depth to the beer. The finish was dry with lasting flavors lingering into the aftertaste. The body was medium with a moderate level of carbonation and an almost creamy nature on the palate. This one is a winner folks, getcha some! 12 ounce green bottle.

MrGGen (331) - ITALY - APR 15, 2009
UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 Comprata stamattina a 0.79€ alla Dico e subito provata a pranzo.E tenuto conto che giusto accanto,nello stesso scaffale c’era la Ichnusa prezzata a 1.50€ ed una lager della Damm,la Gold Star Premium,ad 1€ credo proprio di aver scelto la meglio che il supermercato offriva. Colore marrone scuro con discreta schiuma beige chiara,aroma di malto tostato,caffè e sentori di caramello.Sapore dolce,sembra cioccolato o forse caffèlatte però piacevole.Nel complesso una discreta birra.

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2007
330 ml bottle. Skunky aroma. Dark beer. Clear brown color. No foam and low carbonation. This is a very different mixture than what I’m used to. Skunky taste/dark beer. I thought it was interesting but not really for me.

hauxe (310) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2015
Strong caramel taste. Sweet and fizzy as it goes over the tongue, almost like a Coke. A pleasant complement to food, such as smoked meats or salty peanuts.

Bottle, 50cl. Dark red color, good head. Strong aroma of malt, nicely roasted. Flavor was the same at the beginning, but later some odd taste of chalk - almost paraffin-like - became too annoying. The taste was not quite what I’ve expected from the great looks of this beer.

Had at Gurtel Brau in vienna on 7/1. Pours dark aramel colore with a smallish white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, and cocoa. Flavor is sweet, but not sickly sweet. Very drinkable, if unexciting, beer.

Nothing but a slightly malty German dark beer. Refreshing, medium bodied with a watery finish.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark body, with a light brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving a fair lace. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel. Medium sweet taste, notes of caramel. Pretty thin, average carbonation, watery texture. Pretty nice.
