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°

Subdued malty aroma on a dark ruby beer with a creamy head. The flavor's got nice toffee notes. Ends with a dry malt finish.

Bottle -- Far from one of my favourite styles, but here goes... Pours a deep browny red with a medium beige head with OK retention and a fair bit of lcaing. Aroma is sweet biscuit dough with a bit of roastedness and over-ripe fruit. Surprisingly watery palate. More roasted malt up front in the flavour, givng way to a fairly insipid sweetness. Actually very light and lacking in oomph. Has hints of depth and complexity but doesn’t follow through. Still not one of my favourite styles.

On draught. Dark red-brown color. Mid-sized head. Malt and caramel in aroma. Sweet with very little bitterness in tase.Very similar to kvass.

Pleasant light hop and malt aroma. tastes of deeply roasted barley malt, but for those who do not like a dry beer, this is not a good choice. Only fair head retention.

A nice dark lager. A sort of bitter aftertaste but not too strong, good color and aroma.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2005
Dark brown with big red highlights. Small but tight, light brown head. Sweet amlty aroma with some mustiness and hop present. Musty flavour also, with a very dry, roast malt, bitter finish. A bit average really.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2003
Yeah, this is a good simple dark. Liquorice present with a caramel toffee flavour. Finishes with just a little charred bitterness. Nice deep mouthfeel. Impressive.

On tap at the Glockenspiel in Saint Paul, MN. Definitely a malty beer, with subtle fruit flavors (black currants, red cherries, blackberries) making appearances. Superficially creamy -- starts out nice, but the body is ultimately thin, sometimes even bordering on watery. Decent lacing. Slippery on the palate. An interesting beer, but it needs more body to really be "harmonious" and "well rounded."
