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°

Brown, thin offwhite head. Roasty, dry, not much hop. Medium body. Some caramel-like malt flavors emerge when it warms up.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2003
Mildly sweet aroma, chestnut colour, with a medium sized toffee head, and some lace, Slight malty flavour, good roasty dryness, not too sweet, a pleasant surprise.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 9, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 not so dark in color but a tad hazy with amber notes..a thin layer of froth covered the the top..aroma was too subtle to pick up anything other than lager yeast...the beer had a light body to it..caramel covered berry dunkel like flavors with caramel nuts and lingering sweetness..

CEZ (396) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 20, 2003
Coke-like brown color. Didn't show a great head in my glass, just a small beige layer... Rather subtle caramel and roasted malt aroma. Sweet, warm malt taste, leading to some dry bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, not bad, not too exciting either.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2003
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.

imdownthepub (9668) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2003
Dark Brown colour with middling malty head, had from pressure tap in Trieste, Italy. Sweet malt flavours dominate although thinner than I expected. Highly carbonated, so much so that i was difficult to drink. Some bitterness but mostly balnd.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 21, 2003
This beer pours a dark amber color that is slightly transparent with a medium white head and no lacing on the glass. There really isn't any aroma that I can find. The flavor is sweet and has a slightly carmel-like taste. Very good and pretty smooth. Slightly dry aftertaste. Good beer for drinking several of but it doesn't have a ton of special character.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Brownish amber color,small off white foamy head that faded slowly.Malty sweet aroma with a slight amount of hops and caramel.Malty taste,sweet caramel quite fizzy on the tongue from the carbonation,very slight hop presence in the flavor.The after taste was malty sweet mild hop bitterness with a light feel in the mouth.A very drinkable brew just a tad sweet but it doesn't get to over powering.well worth getting.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Delicious. A lightly sweet, rather malty and substantial dunkel that doesn’t skimp. Dark brown in color and much like a brown ale. Utterly delicious and representative of my type of beer. Polished off my pint in no time flat.
Earlier Rating: 5/29/2002 Total Score: 3.2
Dark; I was expecting a pilsner from Austria and am pleasantly surprised. Reminiscent of Xingu. Very nice and a bit sweet in the body.

Bottle. Eh, nothing special. A little carmely and malt, but not much. It's not great, but not bad.
