Everyone needs a go-to beer for takeout/delivery pizza. A gourmet pizza deserves an amazing beer. But sometimes you just need a regular pizza. And even a regular pizza needs a beer. For that pizza, my beer of choice is now Leinenkugels Creamy Dark. Along with my other trusty beers (Dos Equis Amber and Negra Modelo), Creamy Dark is smooth, fairly light-bodied, more bitter than sweet, accessible (nice for a group), and inexpensive. Sure, it’s nothing special, but sometimes, that’s exactly what you need. Creamy Dark does its job quite nicely.

12 oz bottle for 25 cents from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits in downtown Muscatine. Black appearance with a nice, lasting tan head and light lacing. Aroma of dark, nutty malts, chocolate, coffee, light vanilla and light roast. Similar flavor, adding a light sweetness and a mild earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a creamy feel and a light dry finish. Not bad overall.

Dark with small off-white head. Nose is chocolate. Light body with a lot of carbonation for a dark beer, chocolate flavors. Decent brew.

This is a very nice beer, although I was surprised to see how it was classified. This tastes like a milk stout to me and a very decent one at that

On tap at Brown Jug, A-squared. Hint of molasses in the aroma. Smooth drinking with chocolate overtones. Very sessionable. Surprised to find it’s classed as a Vienna Lager.

Actually pretty tasty for what it is. Roasted malts, a bit of sweetness almost like lactose from a milk stout. A bit thin, but it is a swarzbier, so understandable. Dark cola color with cocoa head.

Nice dark beer perfect for MLK weekend. Taste similar to a Guinness but not as thick and strong

Pours a dark red with a medium khaki head. Aromas of malt and coffee with some chocolate. Strong pilsner taste and aroma also. Thin on the palate. Overall just an ok beer.
