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°

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."

on Tap- A nice dunkel, nothing over the top, but a really nice malt backbone. The hops are muted, as they should be, but seem to come through at the end. Very quaffable with food as it does not weigh you down. I am surprised that this is not rated slightly higher. I had the draught version and all was pleasing !

Draft at Black Forest Inn. Dark brown in appearance (like a brown ale) with a creamy head. Smooth, creamy and fulfilling in the mouth. More sweet than bitter with a biscuity, molasses flavor. Couldn’t imagine a better session beer. I imagine this is much better on draft, can’t imagine the creaminess out of a bottle without a widget. Highly recommended.

fl 33cl, 4,5% Dark brown with thick, roasted foam. Aroma with some hops and a bit of raisin and chocolate. Sweet taste, bit malty at first but overall low. Medium palate. Bready, bit roasted after but ends in a bad, salty taste.

I thought I had accidently opened one of my homebrews it was so damn like it. Looks like coke, little head(my homebrew is better!). Quite rich - with sweet coffee + caramel. A dry finish. cheers
