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°

hopscotch (8908) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle… Clear burnt amber lager with orange highlights and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The sweet aroma is a bit chocolaty and caramelized with good roasted, smoky notes and a light whiff of skunk. The flavor is well-roasted with subtle chocolate, smoke and coffee essences, but leans way over onto the sweet side of balance… only a rumor of anything resembling lupulin. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, chocolaty, cloyingly sweet finish.

pivnizub (8750) - 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......

Quack-Duck (7778) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2013
bottle from Meinl am Graben, Wien. Clear dark brown colour, off-white head. Sweet and malty, lots of caramel. Very close to a Bohemian dark lager, i.e. very nice indeed.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2006
Very nice appearance with a deep, dark brown colour topped with a beige, lasting head. Sweet aroma. Taste of sweet roasted malt and dark chocolate. Vague bitter finish. A tasty beer, but perhaps a litte too sweet.
At Catweazle’s great tasting party 10.06.2006.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 Bottle, Rogoznica, HR. Nose of brine, figgy dried fruit, almost rauch-like smoked waxiness and cocoa. That’s an 8. Beige on mahogany, with ruby flashes. Laces beautifully. This is a smooth, chocolatey dunkel with bags of smoked malt character approaching rauchbier status, and at least as good as the Lasko Temno.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium brown with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and vanilla-kissed coffee malts.. came across very sweet. The flavor found very sweet chocolate, vanilla, and caramel malt with very light, toasty bitterness around.. sweet, fairly tasty finish. Light-bodied with higher carbonation.. very sweet, but not overly so for the style.. aiight.
