This actually surprised me very much. It poured a nice clear dark brown with an off-white head. The taste was very malty, not too complex, but just the way I enjoy it. Definitely recommended, and a great beer to enjoy any time or with any food.

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

An American Dark Lager, brewed in Europe. Thatís interesting. Anyways, itís not really that dark. Darker than regular Heineken. Itís reddish. Itís goodish.

Heineken Dark has a medium, creamy, tan head and a very dark reddish-brown appearance, with moderate carbonation. The aroma is of malt and some sort of cream or milkiness. Taste is unusual; very malty, with some sort of bread flavor that probably is due to the wheat component. Mouth-feel is fairly heavy, and Heineken Dark finishes smooth. Overall, I found this to be an unusual and interesting lager. I highly recommend giving this a taste. RJT

This beer has a huge head. I actually really liked it, which is surprising because their regular isnt my favorite. I was definitely glad I gave it a try.

Not bad! The bottle I had yielded no head and was a bit flat, but bubbled nicely. Good flavor and less hoppy then the green bottle stuff.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2004
not a bad beer. iím a bit of a fan of dark beers though, so perhaps iím biased. i took my first sip of this a bit skeptically, thinking that heineken probably wouldnít be able to do a dark beer well, but was fairly pleased with it. after a six pack, i was even more pleased...

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Drink this one the PINT-festival at the Koningshoeve abbey. This is a good Dark lager with a lightly bitter taste with hints of caramel.
