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°

Fair. Not overly complex. nice brownish color, but very little flavor. Very malty and slightly tangy. Has very little aroma and poor lacing.

imdownthepub (11145) - 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.

Bottle. Hmmm. I remember really liking this a lot when I first tried it at the Concordia club in 2002, whilst watching the GErmans down the Saudis 8-0. I suppose I mustn’t have tried many decent dark beers at that time, because it seems pretty ho-hum now. Sweetness is about right, some nuttiness and malty character, caramel at a stretch.

Bottle. Brown with off white head. Sweet aroma. Malty sweet flavour and very little hop presence. So So beer.

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle (Gösser Dark) and served in pint glass: Pours a mahogany hue with a fading frothy head and almost no lace. The aroma has notes of crystal, chocolate, smoky and bready malts. Hints of juicy fruit gum and some mild peppery vapours. The taste is rather straight forward malty sweetness that is close to becoming cloy. A bit of dark fruit, smoke and spice is the only level of complexity this brew offers. There is also a bit of a skunked and sourness character that is less than ideal. The mouth feel is smooth and slightly creamy but there is a soapy tone upon the finish that is disturbing. While never offensive there is also very little to like about this bier, even at it’s moderate price for an import I will not buy this again.

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.
