2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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).

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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$.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
