COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beck’s Dark is rich and smooth with a lingering, slightly sweet aftertaste. The deep ebony color is the result of specially roasting the barley malt. Unlike dark ales, Beck’s Dark is a bottom-fermented lager which creates a robust flavor and full body while retaining the refreshing properties of a lager beer.

Dark mahogany in colour. Sweetish nose, marginally malty. dryish finish with some bitterness. That could be a good start of a review, but unfortunately it ends there, and that is because there is nothing more to say about this beer. (That is the long way to say one-dimensional...)

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2009 Bottle at Detroit airport pre DLD trip... Never seen the dark so though what the hell... Maybe a mistake as this was the 7th bottle i had 1/2 of at Detroit airport in an hour... the alcohol hadnt got into me properly yet, but it did during the fligth and did i feel way rough when i arrived at Goose Islad a few hours later ... any way onto the beer ... brown ... sweet lager toffee malt nose ... quite toffee .. some lager hop ... really not great. ..

Re. Zoso137 ... i do wear top hats but have never had one filled with Candy

Koelschtrinker (20242) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Sehr milder Antrunk, röstig. Im Mittelteil aromatischer werdend, ebenso im Abgang. Trotz der Intensitätssteigerung wirkt das Bier etwas langweilig und vor allem austauschbar. Test vom 23.9.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 10,8,9,8,-,8 - 8,36

bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Aroma is of dark roasted malt, but it seems to have grassy hop as well. Very dark mahogany color with a white head that filmed immediately. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Seems to be flavors of dark caramel and grassy hop. The finish is primarily light hop bitter. Sort of a thin, dark, roasted lager. Sort of dunkel light.

Ratman197 (14692) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Green bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, toasted malt asnd light eartrhiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, bread and a hint of earthiness with a crisp finish.

2.3
DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle sample during a beer festival at Sar HaMashka’ot. Clear pale brown color. Aroma of malt, light toastiness and metallic hints. Flavor is a bit toasty with some malt, caramel, and a herbal-metallic bitter finish. Rather light-bodied.

2.6
imdownthepub (14469) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle, pasteurised, 330ml. Dark brown with faint head, carbonated. A pre trip bottle of dark lager, what more could I want, well one that doesn’t taste of cardboard for one, a beer with more flavour would be nice. Some sweetish fruitiness and a hint of bittering dark malt. Pretty average.

2.9
Tmoney99 (14377) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with an average creamy light brown head that was lasting and produced light lacing. Roasted harsh malt aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Light bitter sweet flavor with an average finish.
