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°

Draft at Libreria bar in Tirana Dark brown scattered lace Smells good and bready. The palate is sugary and the malts are underdeveloped and it soon becomes too sweet and cloying; the body can’t keep up with the sugars.

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.

rosenbergh (7376) - 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.

Alengrin (2441) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Austrian Dunkel, tasted as Gösser Dark Beer. Thick, even rocky, creamy, off-white head, pretty bronze colour with copper glow, clear. Subdued aroma of caramelly and nutty malts, iron, soft leafy hops. Taste begins neutral, becoming faintly caramelly malty, sweetish, crisp and clean, bit metallic with strong carbonation, middle a nice and simple but clean maltiness, whiff of leafy hops in the finish, gradually becoming stronger but then fading away again rather quickly.

Ragnampiza (523) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 18, 2014
500 ml bottle. Dark amber/light brown, pretty clear, with a decent, creamy and moderately persistent light beige head. Dark and roasted nose, decent chocolate and licorice presence, slightly herbal/balsamic, earthy, with some black olives/olive oil component, pretty weird (having zero experience with skunky beers, I can’t tell if that’s the off-aroma, being a green bottle). Taste follow suite, pretty sweet and roasted in the mouth, slightly astringent, more fizzy than expected (and hoped for). Little wet cardboard in the aftertaste. Slightly watery, resfreshing and easy to drink. Average to lively carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Not bad, considering the price.

CanCrusher (670) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, chesnut brown colour with small, creamy, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and milk chocolate. Taste starts light bitter with strong taste of white coffee (coffee with milk) and caramel, than finish with somemild sweetness. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. I was positively suprised by this beer, didn’t expect it to be that good...
