Not as dreadful as I’d anticipated. The roasted malt comes through well enough, but a flat bitterness lent by the hops (extract?) and a distracting metallic note kills any significant pleasantness.

Very dark pour, very little aroma, maybe a bit of malt. Very smooth but very watery,

Pours a reddish dark brown color with tan head. Delivers on the promise of creamy and dark

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.

GIJOE (926) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Dark with small off-white head. Nose is chocolate. Light body with a lot of carbonation for a dark beer, chocolate flavors. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

ANZUShophunter (87) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2015
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.

Beerathon (1558) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2015
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
