Reddish brown color, tan head around the edges. Very faint roasty nose. Rather light on the palate with a smokey taste.

Bottled. After reading the posts on rating from notes, I'm trying to rate this trip to the "Leinie's Tackle Box" live on the computer.
A nice beery malty odor rises when I pop the crown, but a closer whiff gave me a touch of adjunct? Pours nice and ruby dark, with a spongy head that fades quickly, some lacing. Taste is nice and "clean," but a little hop bitterness lingers. Good roast malt, almost a stoutish tone to it. Touch of lager yeast bite in there, too. Certainly a good, drinkable beer. Wonder if the difference between this and say, the Berry Weiss is that this may be made only at the Chippewa Falls plant and not meg-produced to support Miller's big avertising pushes? Guess I should have stopped at the Leinie Lodge on my trip to Minneapolis last weekend after all.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 I'm not a bitter beer drinker but I really like the flavor of Creamy Dark. It grows on you. Better in my opinion with a meal than a stand alone after hours drinker. Nice chocolate hint in there also.

Yes, it looks creamy and dark - great head, good lacing. Front is thinner and a little sour, finish is thicker and roasted malts along with some hop.

Color was a nice off black, brown with some off-white head, no lace. Smell is a malty caramel roast with some vanilla notes. Taste is a balance of sweet chocolatey malt and roasted malt with little hop presence. The body is to thin and light and could be more flavored. Its smooth and light, somewhat creamy I guess, nothing stood out for me. Very clean, light, and roastly sweet. Not bad.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2004 This is REAL beer, here; a tartish, mellow, carmelly lager that looks great (aroma is a little underpowered) - mass market? Not for my taste - I could drink this regularly - holds up well until the end but the sugars separate out a bit. A little too tart and sharp.

I'm gonna have to disagree with this beer's average rating. I enjoyed it very much and found it to be a good lager. I would drink again if I can find it. Great beer!

Bottle - This beer is mediocre. The color is nice, but the beer is thin lacking a full bodied flavor that I expect given the color of the beer.

Had this on draft today. No head and low on carbonation. Dark black coffee color. It is smooth but nothing in it gives it real character.

Dark brown in color with a light brown fizzy head, quickly diminishing. Malty nose with a hint of choclate. Flavor is sweet and grainy with some smokiness. Body is quite thin, clean finish.
