It pours like the perfect beer. A small but appreciated light head and a dark thick body.

About the best Dark beer I’ve found. Very easy to drink. Especially for a dark beer

Along with Leinie’s Big Butt, the Guinness of the midwest. Very close to Guinness in flavor and appearance. A good fill in for Guinness when you can’t spend 10 bucks on a 6.

I love this beer. It’s much like the thick German beers. Thick, dark beer is the way beer should be. Not the watery excuses for beer typically brewed here. One should be able to taste their beer.

I was impressed with this beer. A creamy, dark lager is something I’m not sure if I’ve had before. I’m a fan of Scotch and Brown ales. The tastes and feels similar. Sweet with hints of chocolate(?) lactose(?) Heavy, yeastey body of a lager. Highly acidic.

Very, very balanced. Clear chestnut brown color. Creamy nose. Very mild--mild sweetness, no standout hops. Smooth and easy. Pleasant surprise from this brewery.

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, a dark beer with a creamy flavor. Sounds like Guiness! One of my favorite beers to drink anytime. Imagine a lager but with chocolate hops and more. What Guiness drinkers drink when they can't afford Guiness!

I suppose this style is close to a stout or porter. This is actually pretty darn good. It won’t put Guiness out of business but it was smooth, creamy and pretty flavorfull. If you like dark beers with low hops (which I do) this will go down easy. I may have to change my opinion of this brand now that I have tried two I really like.
