COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark lager with the color of a stout, yet none of the bitterness. Brewed from a rich blend of six malts and Cascade, Cluster and Mt. Hood hops, for a uniquely smooth taste.
Availability: October through March.

Only thing I can taste is faint hint of chocolate. Very light brew, drinkable. A decent brew when you dont have cash to kick down on some finer ales. Carbonation is high, makes me burp.

Nothing spectacular, but it is good for the price.

Not bad--not overly strong, and a bit reminiscent of Heineken Dark, but having enough bite to keep it away from being lumped in with the more watery darks. Caramel taste is slightly artificial, but tolerable. Not overly carbonated either, which I like.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 10, 2004
A refreshing dark (and I use that term loosely for this beer) beer, albeit a little thin and not much roastiness. This is one of my cheap beers of choice. Ice cold it is drinkable.

An adequate dark lager if there’s nothing better around. Weak, watery body, nothing really distinctive about it, but inoffensive. When I’m at a party hosted by people who know nothing about real beer, I always hope they at least have some of this in the house.

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.

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.

Not as dark as I would choose, but a good beer nonetheless. Give this to your budmillercoors drinking friends to work them into better stuff.

I find this beer to be a pretty solid dark larger. Its not tryin to be anything special, but at $3.50 for a 6er, I can’t complain. Pours deep brown, with a tan head and quickly disapating head. The taste is pretty sweet roasted malts with a bit of chocolate. The body is pretty light and leaves something to be desiered from a dark beer, but it is a dark lager, not a porter or stout after all.
