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°

Rune (10927) - 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.

daknole (10837) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Bottle from total wine. Brown pour. Light head. Malty aroma. A bit of butter. Flavor is malty with aome buttery notes and very light bitterness at the end. Better than I thought it would be. But not all that great.

hopscotch (10557) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 4, 2010
Flöska: Clear dark brown colour, big bubbly rather short lasting dark beige head, not much lacing. Sweet roasty caramel bready aroma. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Roasty caramel and (rye) bready dark malty flavour, rather watery. Short lasting mild bitterness. Roasty caramel bready watery brew.

pivnizub (10027) - 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......

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
500 ml bottle. BBE 09/2014. Seiersberg, Austria.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Sweet malt, dark fruits and sugary notes in the aroma. Very typical Dunkel flavour with toasted malt, dark fruits and sugary sweetness. Rather drinkable.

Not too shabby. Light fruit and roasted malt on the nose and palate. light bodied, but smooth and fitting of the style. nothing special, but not bad either.
