Bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a thin tan head. The taste and aroma are of caramel, roasted malts and is kind of smokey. One of my more favorite beers as it is very easy to drink and is rather inexpensive in my area.

Not really too much to this one, although it does have a strange drinkability. There is nothing that puts me off about it, other than it is just quite simple. Kind of a caramel maltiness, but not a lot of dark beer qualities, finishes with a hint of nuttiness, and bitterness.

12oz bottle: pours dark brown with minimal tan head, almost no aroma with slight bit of malt coming through, flavor is not like a dark beer at all, has very little flavor and just a hint of roasted malt, nothing to bad but lacks flavor.

Screwtop bottle. Pours clear dark amber with reddish highlights and a lacy light tan head. Some brown sugar and roasty character in the aroma, not much in the way of hops. Body tending to light, texture gets a little watery. Light carbonation. Sweet, nutty flavor, with a touch of molasses. The finish is little grainy, and betrays the fact that hops have been used. Nothing terribly wrong with this beer, but nothing to get excited about either. This one would probably go pretty well with a variety of meals, because the taste is just so darn polite.

I can’t believe Full Sail brewed this beer. Tastes like they took their most bland brew and poured in a dollop of blackstrap molasses. Looks good, nice head, sweet, malty, and no real character. Had no problem pouring the last third down the drain. Life’s too short to drink this brew.

pours dark, amost looks like a cherry coca-cola, with little to no head.
smells of hops and grass.
taste is earthy, creamy, smooth, and slightly bitter with a little carbination.
overall a good beer, for what it is...

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 A typical dark lager. This one happens to lack the rich taste I look for, but not too bad. I would try it again if I had the chance.

This beer is dark that’s for sure but that’s about it. No body at all. You take a drink and say "that’s a dark beer?" If you budget is tight this might work. If not by a 6 pack of Black Butte Porter for same price as a 12 pack of Henery’s Dark and count your blessings.
