I am quite surprised at the low rating this beer has. This is a very good dark beer. While a dark beer, it is quite light and crisp in flavor. The flavors hit almost every part of the tongue, not leaving any taste buds alone. The smell is refreshing, doesn't fall into the stale/musty trap that many dark beers have. May not be the tops of the best dark beer around, but one I find very good.

A sweet dark beer. A strong molasses taste make this a tasty dark beer. Foam dissipates quickly, but served cold it doesn't matter. Very drinkable as there is no bitterness often associated with darks. Kind of a thin mouthfeel, but doesn't really detract from the experience.

dark warm brown with cream colored head that stays. light lacing on the glass

toasted maltyness with a hop undertone to the smell

light hop flavor with deep caramel and dry, roasted malt flavor.

Nice carbonation in the mouth, very dry with a sweetness that stays on the palate.

very drinkable, small doses. I love to have a few of these around while at the camp fire.

Bottle poured into pint glass

Dark amber, with a hue of light brown at the end

Smell: malt

Taste: chocolate, toffee, and faint raisin

Mouthfeel: Smooth!!

Overall, this is brilliant beer! This is smooth and very much a dessert beer like Old Rasputin or Serpent's Stout

I cannot wait to try this brew on draught!

This is a very good dark beer. Much much better than its skunky green brother. If you like lagers/dark beers and you have the choice between this and regular becks definately go with the dark. It has a much fuller more robust flavor than the skunky green bottle. I've had better beers than Beck's Dark but not many.
