2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had a nice dark color, but didn’t follow through on taste. Sort of a weak maltiness and a thin taste. On the plus side, it goes down smooth with a decent hop presence in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice but forgettable. Pours a dark brown color but does have some red highlights and a small sticky head. The nose is nice, some raosted aromas and some sweet malts as well. Has a bit of a sweetness that is almost cloying on the annoying side, but that fades away with some hoppiness and finishes quite roasted and dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dark brown, very dark, minimal head, tannish, spotty lacing.   Roasty nose, slight lactose like sweetness.   Lightly roasted malt flavor, somewhat coffeeish, sweet to start but a tad dry on the finish.   More of an ale than a lager, at least to me.   Hop presense right up front, dies down slowly.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Semi-sweet lactose like finish on a bed of roasted malts with just a smidgen of hop bitterness.   Not half bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Sweet malt aromas with a hint of hops. Sweet roast flavor with a little bitterness. This is one of my favorite cheap beers.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber color, light tan head. Nose of light chalky roast and fruit. The flavor is light and sweet, some raost & fruit. Fairly boring mouthfeel though. Finishes light and smooth. Decent.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark mahogany with a thin, white head. No lacing. Bitter and malty aroma. Some caramel to it. The flavor is slightly sweet, sugary almost. Warm malts that are slightly bread-like. Palate is a touch watery, though. Finish is easy and smooth.

Thin flavor, but that’s to be expected in a Henry’s. Otherwise, pleasant and quite drinkable.

This is new and out for 2005 and wow this was a great beer. I liked the flavor, aroma and the overall tones this ber brought out. A special limited edition I think they got right. It is a dark winter beer with great overall taste to drink. Good Job I will try another. Beer SNOBS will like this beer.

Behold, our dark lager. It tastes nothing like the Private Reserve. We swear! See that label, its a totally different color. No, the beer does not look and taste the same. See, right here, the label explicitly states this is a "Dark Lager." ITS A DARK LAGER, can’t you read?

What in the heck is dark about this one? This is another one of the Miller line that make people think that you are a little classier for having it at your house party. Nothing redeamable about this beer.
