COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Looks dark, tastes light. It’s Ontario’s favourite dark lager. A dark beer that is slowly brewed with Canadian grown malted barley, specialty coloured malts, imported hops and pure cultured brewers yeast. Dark lagers are enjoyed all year long, and they’re not as filling as ales. Waterloo Dark will cut some of the heaviness in sauce-based meat dishes. Waterloo Dark is an equally perfect beer to go with appetizers suitable for watching sports games, or used as an actual ingredient when preparing a meal. Experience what this great dark "light tasting" lager has to offer and why it has won multiple awards at the World Cup of Beer, Canadian Brewing Awards, Ontario Brewing Awards and the Monde Selection International Institute For Quality Selections.

Crockett (1028) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
Dark brown/red with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Sweet. Kind of like a thin porter. Very light mouth feel. Sour and tart with notes of roastiness and smoke, some burnt sugar. Late malts. Where are the hops? Not too bad from Brick.

Tessic (917) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2004
Pours a reddish black with next to no head. Scents include metalic malts and roasted caramel. Initial sip was very watery. Very little carbonation. No metalic taste but roasted malts were present. Slightly nutty flavour too. Besides the roasted flavour the palate was almost non-existant. This one was out of a bottle, I've had it on tap and was much better.

SpikedLemon929 (6) - CANADA - JAN 26, 2004 does not count
Very light tasting dark beer. Smooth with a slight malt aftertaste. The dark beer for the masses?

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2003
Surprisingly light tasting for a dark beer. Hint of sweetness, light malt flavour. I quite enjoyed this. (And it now comes in "stubbies.")

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Deep ruby color, head went away quickly. Some roasted malt in the aroma but it was faint. Lighter malt flavor. Light to medium bodied. Not bad but could use a bit more flavor/aroma.

Dorwart (2412) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Decent tan head but does not last long and little carbonation. Aroma has gone on vacation. It was there initially but quickly left for the Bahamas. Some roasted malt is all I can remember. Color is a very nice port red. Flavor is a little weak and bland. More malts with a little bit of chocolate. Not much else. Finish is a little sticky and unimpressive. Not a bad beer just bland and unimpressive.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Very dark ruby with no head, but lots of initial carbonation. Chocolate and smoky aroma. Vinous with flavours of vanilla and almond. Slightly prickly mouthfeel with a full body and a dry finish.

jercraigs (8290) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 TFOB 2007. Draft. Very dark brown, with a small tan head (3+). Muted sweet malt aroma (6+). Light dark malt flavour with very light notes of ambiguous dark fruit. (6+) Average palate. Quaffable, this is pleasant but not assertive enough to take it to the next level. 6+/3+/6+/3/13 <P>Octoberfest 2000 - just a bit sweet and malty, smooth and thicker than average. 5/3/5/4/10 - 2.7

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Nice dark color,small head that faded pretty quickly.Malty aroma with the usual coffee and light to faint chocolate.There was little to no carbonation which wasn't a bad thing for this brew.For the flavor you guessed it,lightly malty some coffee tones and a semi-sweet chocolate.Not much going on here.Theres little to get excited about,even finishes with a thin feel and a mild malty after taste.I'm pretty glad i don't have to many more of these brews left it would be a shame to have alot to drink.

Dark brown w/ quickly dissipating tan head. Mildly malty nose. Light body. Light roasted malt flavour w/ just a hint of coffee & chocolate. Finish is watery, slightly acidic, & not very bitter.
