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°

(Bottle BBE 05/2007; Thanks Jay!) Malty and slightly chocolate aroma with a hint of caramel. Dark red brown colour and average size, light brown, more or less fully diminishing head with a hint of lacing. Sweet, malty, slightly roasted, slightly caramel and slightly chocolate flavour. Softly carbonated, medium bodied and dry palate. Gösser Stiftsbräu is a good dunkel! 28/01/07

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 28, 2009
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.

bottle, poured into glass. Very dark, tastes rather light compared wit color. Probably one of the better austrian beers.

It pours a dark brown color with a lingering 1 finger off white head. It has some lacing and a large amount of carb present. On the nose I am getting some sweet malt and a little grassy notes. It has a creamy mouthful and on the flavor side of things I get some sweet malt,carmel,toasted bread,grains. The sweetness up front seems to balance out with grassy hops. It finishes with a slight bitterness. It is similar to a pale euro pale lager but without the skunk and not something you have to force down. I have to say this is something I could reach for again.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2004
Big tan head. Deep copper red. Light palate, carbonation not evident, smooth but quickly gone. Quite a flat caramel malt. Very mild bitterness kicks in some time after swallowed. This is nice. Also very cheap for an import ($2.59 Dan Murphy's Hornsby). The kind of beer you would want to have a case sitting around for an impromptu drinking demonstration with friends.

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.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2007
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.

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.
