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°

Very Dark color, black almost. Faint aroma, light malt taste came though after is warmed a bit. Average!!!

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

Bottle- almost black with beige head into glass, more reddish brown when held to light, roasted malt and chocolate with light hop, a decent easy drinking brew.

SheffieldSteel (115) - St Nikolai im Sausal, AUSTRIA - OCT 23, 2012
Aroma of toast and yeast. Pours thick off-white head.Colour is hazy dark brown, with an amber hue. Taste is thick and sweet with some toffee, plum and toffee apple. Watery. Light carbonation. Finish long and bitter. Decent ABV on this would make it a good choice for a session beer when looking for something a bit different.
