Gösser Dark hits #1 at NY Times Beer Tasting

January 6, 2011

 Austrian beer brewing tradition confirmed, again! 

In a recent beer tasting by the NY Times dunkel-style beers were put on the stand. The tasting panel consisted of Eric Asimov, Florence Fabricant, Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery, and Haley Jensen, beer sommelier at DBGB. The products under their palate scrutiny came from Austria, Germany, and Mexico and included, of course, local US brews.


“Dunkel” is the German word for dark and refers to dark lagers. It refers to beers dominantly brewed in Southern Germany and Austria. By the definition of Eric Asimov “they are not intended to impress with their complexity – they are straightforward, made to refresh and just right when you have more than one”.

The Gösser Dark impressed the tasting panel with its distinctive aroma “of dark coffee, a soft, almost delicate texture, and a subtle energy and depth to it that lingered long after the sip was gone”.
