foyle (292) - Wyoming, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass. Appearance: 1" off white head slowly recedes with mild lacing. Color is a reddish brown. Aroma: mild aroma of molasses and whole wheat bread. Mouthfeel: light and refreshing, somewhat creamy. Flavor: chocolate, medium roasted barley, caramel, molasses with some grassy hop in the finish. Overall: a very pleasant dark lager. Nicely done.

Solid and drinkable, doesn’t have the skunk thang going. An early intro into the fact that there was something behind fizzy yellow beer.

Not bad if you’re in the mood for it. There’s a hint of chocolate and toasted malt. Far from great, but better than I expected.

Bottle. A- Caramel, toffee, spices. A- Very dark red color, hazy liquid, tan head. T- Slightly bitter, slightly malty, spices, toffee. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spicy finish. O- An upgrade from regular Heineken but it’s still lacking quite a bit.

As a wise man once said " Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!" I say " Heineken Dark? Fuck that shit! BLATZ!!" That’s how I roll.

When Anna Geertruida Cornelia Heineken inherited the brewery from her late husband, never she thought she will create the standard for beer marketing and the finest quality beer from Holland. This dark lager resembles her character; strong but gentle, with character and savor. I prefer the dark lager to the original, more taste to the palate! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MacBoost (1425) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Pours a pretty deep amber. Looks force carbed. Aromas of nutty malts with caramel. Could pass for a Polotmavy. Taste is caramel, toffee, tree nuts. Finishes clean. Not fucken bad.
