2.7/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass ~ had this review written for ages, just never transferred it to here.

A: Not quite opaque dark brown with a light tan head that quickly diminishes to nothing, but leaves respectable lacing. Some mahogany hues shine though with the sunlight.

S: Lots of bready malts, and not much else. A little bit of toasted malt maybe? Mostly clean here... Moving on.

T: Some weird tasting toasted malts... Not a whole lot of hop flavor; it just provides a weak touch of bitterness in the finish. It's not offensive, but there's really not much to talk about here.

M: Really light-bodied and thin with a bit of slickness that finishes a lot like a fountain soda. There's not much here to keep your palate wanting more.

O: I guess Beck's Dark isn't as offensive as it gets, but it's definitely not as good as it could be. There's definitely some good qualities to this brew, but not enough to outweigh the bad qualities. I wouldn't call it offensive, but it's definitely something to stay away from if there's other options.

2.81/5  rDev -7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Sampled last night on 5/5/14 and had this one many times before but has been awhile. Used to be imported from Germany but now made by Anheuser Busch. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a very dark amber in color with a lighter tan head that dissipates quickly that leaves some lacing when sipped but not much. Smells and tastes different to what I remember back in the '80's and early '90's even. Aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of brown sugar. Taste is on the weak side and not like I really remember. Overall, disappointed.
