4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It was a good beer. I don’t think it is Austria’s finest like they say. I had a couple better when I was in Ischgal. Still is a very good beer though. I will probably buy more. Hard to find good beer here. I think warsteiner Dunkel is better though.

The malt is a bit sweeter than I normally prefer, and I was expecting a more smoky bock tasting finish. However, this is a good tasting light bodied dark that is very smooth. I even found sweet nature of this beer was more pleasant and inviting after one or two. I’m sure Gosser and I will have another go at it again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank as Gösser Dark.
Strong aroma, with fresh hops and a bit of roasty and caramel notes.
Very full taste. The first impression is caramelly dryness, then hoppiness with a bit of malt and finally the roasty bitterness in the aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught version tried at the Brewery tap
A Brown beer with little head retention, aroma of caramel. A solid flavour of chocolate malt and caramel with light hopping. The taste does linger but is not a complex one. The bottled version is slightly sweeter but with a pronounced CO2 bite.

Smooth, easy drinking dark. Subtle dunkel flavor, almost as if it’s missing something

This is a nice beer which secured its place in my top 10., Its full of flavour and aroma.
For its 4.5% it surely doesn’t feel weak. Well balanced. As mentioned before it goes well with a dinner

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Reddy brown, with a fine, thin head. Sweet, spicy nose which, though light, was enticing and promised something wonderful. The palate was a little on the light side (call it nondescript if you like), nothing at all that stood out. The body was comatose. The promise, sadly, was broken….

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mörk lager med tydlig kaffedoft. Inte min typ av mörk lager. Smakar kanske godare till kötträtter.

A very good dark beer. Not a very strong palate, but very good flavor. I will buy more.
