It’s got the flavor of a stout while as refreshing as a lager, it’s the perfect combination without sacrifice, unless you like bitter beers.

A good dark brew. Some coffee / chocolate flavor notes from roasted malts, mild but nice hops flavors and complex notes. A very nice entry from Blitz-Weinhard. Let’s see if Miller can manage to keep their crappy influence out of the fine line of Weinhard beers now that they’ve gained control of this classic American brand.

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.

This has a pretty good roasty creamy aroma. Flavor is better than the rest of the H.W. beers as well. Some roast, nuttiness, malt and cream. Actually a pretty good beer.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 Ok comes in the weird shaped Henry brown 12 oz bottle, nice handsome blue and gold label. Nice enough looking beer for one so cheap..its a dark ruby colour when held to the light..small tan head that goes very quickly to be replaced by some good lacing. I actually liked the aroma of this beer very much caramel and roasted malts are very upfront . After a good show by the aroma the tatse was a little too thin..yes its pleasant but it isnt very "upfront" yes theres caramel and chocolate flavors. Pretty average on the tongue,,flavour doesn’t last as long as i would have liked. Overall its a good cheap beer.

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.
