2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle. Skunky aroma. Dark beer. Clear brown color. No foam and low carbonation. This is a very different mixture than what I’m used to. Skunky taste/dark beer. I thought it was interesting but not really for me.

Had at Gurtel Brau in vienna on 7/1. Pours dark aramel colore with a smallish white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, and cocoa. Flavor is sweet, but not sickly sweet. Very drinkable, if unexciting, beer.

Nothing but a slightly malty German dark beer. Refreshing, medium bodied with a watery finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark body, with a light brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving a fair lace. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel. Medium sweet taste, notes of caramel. Pretty thin, average carbonation, watery texture. Pretty nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle BBE 05/2007; Thanks Jay!) Malty and slightly chocolate aroma with a hint of caramel. Dark red brown colour and average size, light brown, more or less fully diminishing head with a hint of lacing. Sweet, malty, slightly roasted, slightly caramel and slightly chocolate flavour. Softly carbonated, medium bodied and dry palate. Gösser Stiftsbräu is a good dunkel! 28/01/07

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a dark brown color with a lingering 1 finger off white head. It has some lacing and a large amount of carb present.
On the nose I am getting some sweet malt and a little grassy notes.
It has a creamy mouthful and on the flavor side of things I get some sweet malt,carmel,toasted bread,grains. The sweetness up front seems to balance out with grassy hops.
It finishes with a slight bitterness. It is similar to a pale euro pale lager but without the skunk and not something you have to force down. I have to say this is something I could reach for again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big tan head. Deep copper red. Light palate, carbonation not evident, smooth but quickly gone. Quite a flat caramel malt. Very mild bitterness kicks in some time after swallowed. This is nice. Also very cheap for an import ($2.59 Dan Murphy's Hornsby). The kind of beer you would want to have a case sitting around for an impromptu drinking demonstration with friends.
