bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Aroma of dark carmel. Dark mahogany color with a whitish head that left rapidly. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is roasted caramel with light hop. Fairly bland, but it has a decent taste. I’d rather have a good IPA, but this is a good drink. Better than many dunkels (not that this is one, it is just a pretty good dark beer).

jcwattsrugger (11104) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2008
pours a big retaining tan head and deep red color. Aroma is mild dark malt. Taste is some sweet dark malt-molasses/some chocolate and licorice, bready, dark fruit-plum/cherry, faint hops. Thin mouth feel at finish. Medium body. Some doppelbock-like character. OK carbonation.

Tmoney99 (10800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear brown with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt aroma. Medium body. Medium sweet toasted flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Sweet drinkable beer.

imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2005
Bottled, 330ml, pasteurised. Dark brown, reddish with gassed head. A beer with a boiled veg background and a sweet body, quite watery on the palate. There is a maize like quality in the flavour and tart finish. Not my sort of beer.

Bottle with 4.9% alc. Deep brown colour with a nice light brown head. Bit sweet aroma of roasted malts and some chocolate. The flavour has a good bit roasty maltiness, bit of chocolate, caramel. The finish is sweet with some bitterness.
Earlier Rating: 1/22/2007 Total Score: 3
Dark Heinies...those were the days drinking loads of this brew. Nice dark brown colour with a good lasting medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts, slight chocolate. Good malty flavour with caramel, some raisins, dark chocolate. Roasty sweet finish. A pretty good tasting beer. Among the best Heineken beers.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2005
Reddish brown lager which overflowed of my bottle, yield a thick compact moka head in the glass, collapsing to oblivion. Some of this will remain on my carpet until next wash. Sweet caramel and wet dog hair in aroma. In mouth, nutty caramel in mouth, with very little body, short aftertaste, some metallic hops slightly noted. Watery and boring. Bought in Potsdam, NY, 6 months ago, for 1$.

BeerandBlues2 (9765) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Pours a clean mahagoney with an average frothy light brown head that diminishes slightly and then becomes a little rocky and leaving spotty lacing. Brown sugar and caramel malt aroma with yeast notes and a faint hop nose. Buttery malt flavor with brown sugar and ends with a slight hoppiness. Medium-bodied fizzy palate.
