After only knowing of the regular Heineken for my whole life, discovering this piqued my interest. I gave it a try, and what a beer. Not comparable with regular Heineken. This dark later is easy to drink and has a nice strong malty taste.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle at Giovan’s. Deep reddish brown, kinda newcastle colored. Offwhite head. Nose is actually kinda neat. Low molasses notes and cocoa, pale malt, faint hop. No skunk. On tasting, super clean and fresh with a light roast note trending towards cocoa. Super drinkable and likable. Huh.

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Semi- transparent red-brown with a creamy, light brown head. Aroma is toast, caramel. Taste is malty, chocolate, caramel. very sweet. Tasty, but a little watery. Wayyyyy better than regular Heinie.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear brown body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin wispy film. The nose is sweet with some lightly husky toasted malt and burnt caramel. Tastes very sweet with burnt caramel and husky chocolate malt. Finishes very bland and leaves some sticky sweet residue long after you swallow. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. I think I’d choose the regular Heineken over this, and that’s saying something.

Poors thin but dark. Very little to no head. Taste is malty and sweet, not unpleasant. Mouthfeel is thin and finish is weak and slightly sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stevesie (326) - - DEC 31, 2012
Pours dark; minimal head. Reasonably pleasant nose. Easy drinking, slightly rich with moderate chocolate/mocha flavor. Clean finish. Definitely an improvement on the original.

Syzzer (591) - Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Similar to many Swarzbiers, but this one is a more watered down safe version. Although it lacks character, this is a good beer- easy to drink, mild malts for a simple but tasty tune. Not much head, thinner body

Easy drinking dark. Much better than the original. Mocha-ish quality on the palate. At times tastes like you're drinking candy. There are many many many better out there, but there are also many worse. Would definitely drink again. Might be a good summer dark beer if that makes any sense. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Almost has a candy quality to it. A very serviceable, easy to find dark lager. Pick some up, you won't be disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red color. Very little head. Nice flavor not over powering. Best Heineken I've tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
