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.

Sad. Spent a long summer in Germany as a teenager and I remember loving Becks, Becks dark, Becks anything. Light brown pour with nice head. Aroma is musty and malty. Taste is what you would get with what I imagine drinking a good german dunkle cut with 1/5 water would be. Taste the malt and a little bitter hops. Not what I remember...

Originally rated on 9/11/08. "Skunky sweet aroma, deep ruby brown body with a very thin head, no laceing present. Flavor of malt and strong metallic notes, i think i got a bad batch, I probably wont drink the other one i got, i am not sure if i will finish whats in my glass.

Backlog. Pretty straightforward and mild dunkel. Easy drinking without any fuss and with a clean finish. Don’t mind this and honestly prefer it to the regular Becks.

Not a ton going on here but it’s drinkable at least, and a little better than regular becks. Dark brown pour with ok head. Light tangy finish. Not offensive, just boring. Bottle at press club.

Onslow (1473) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Looks nice in the glass - clear ruddy dark color with one finger of dense tan head that settles to a persistent thin head. aroma has hints of roasted malts with a mineral / metallic overtone. Taste is sweet roasted malts up front and through the middle of the swallow but settles into a muddy sweet maltiness with metallic overtones at the end. No so good.

Bottle. Mahogany color with an off-white head. The aroma is slightly skunky. Flavor is roasted malt with a sweet but metalic taste on the finish.

phaleslu (10012) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Green bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a somewhat cloudy brownish amber with a small off-white head. Notes of grass, leaves, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, sugars, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, malty, damp mouthfeel. Not much to it. Inoffensive, and it works when you’re low on options.

Starts nice, but the sweet rich taste dulls and flattens as the bottle progresses. Hints of roasted malts. Mediocre.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Pub in Gettysburg, PA. This is a complete disappointment. The beer is a dark brown with a tan head and has a metallic odor to it. The flavor is dull and flat with a metallic flavor mixed with some malt, completely forgettable.

Beck’s Dark from a bottle. Dark mahogany with very good clarity. Decent head. Mild aroma with a flavor that is a bit better but also mild. O: Decent except too mild.
