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°

Tasted like a typical German dunkel. My only complaint was that it seemed rather flat. Kind of a dull beer - nothing interesting, just drinkable, nothing more.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Bottled (from Systembolaget, Mölnvik Gustavsberg). Deep amber, close to copper colour, with a mediumsized off-white to beige head. Aroma is caramel, some quite sugary and ryelike notes along with mild bitterness. Flavour is rye, caramel, some mild toasted notes as well as mild floral notes. OK, but not very inspiring or special.

marcusm (56) - Remich, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 20, 2004
Draught version tried at the Brewery tap A Brown beer with little head retention, aroma of caramel. A solid flavour of chocolate malt and caramel with light hopping. The taste does linger but is not a complex one. The bottled version is slightly sweeter but with a pronounced CO2 bite.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 22, 2007
50cl, comprata alla Standa di via Cesarea; versa colore bruno con discreta schiuma beige chiara chiara; aroma molto leggero di malto e caffè. Al sapore invece note dolcissime che trascendono il malto, quasi un cioccolato e vaniglia oppure cioccolato e latte (mi ricorda un pochino il nesquik freddo, soprattutto nel finale); è una birra divertente anche se un po’ cheap, che si potrebbe bere a colazione, ma che fa venire voglia di carne alla brace. La dolcezza è un po’ esagerata, ma oggi dopo pranzo ho assaggiato di peggio purtroppo. Corpo molto acquoso, frizzantezza ridotta; discreta :)

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle (in NZ), pours a cola-ish brown with a large pillowy white head. Uninspiring grainy malt nose with a touch sweetness. More caramal malt on the palate, with a touch of roastedness. Pleasant enough, but a little sweet for me.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2010
Small bottle from Systembolaget as ’Gösser Dark Beer’. Dense fingerthick lightly tanned head. Clear ruby brown body. Nutty, light roasted malt aroma with a faint whiff of ash. Light malt body. Light to medium sweet with notes of peppery malts and a vague fruitiness. Sparsely hopped. Feels diluted in the mouth. Short, watered down ending.

kathouse (1642) - Nevada, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Dark ruby ale with thin light tan head. Smells of toffee and chocolate with a tinge of spice. Body is thin but good carbonation. Palate is slightly pungent and lingers a little.
