Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAY 17, 2003
I can remember when this was being brewed in the USA by Miller, but I'm glad to see it's back overseas, where it began. Compared to Miller, this stuff is great. Great, maybe, but still not the best. Poured out a deep dark brown color, not black, just brown. Aromas of toasted malts, biscuit-like also. Dry taste to it, with a coffee-ish aftertaste. Didn't have much of a head either. An ok beer at best.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2003
it's a very manly, hearty, robust beer. it's dark, it's thick, but not neccessarily outstanding.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Nice malty aroma with small head. Malty creamy feel and taste but a little watered down. Just average for a darkie.

freekyp (1473) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2003
Nice malty nose. Deep chestnut body with medium, but quickly diminishing head. Decent caramel malt character throughout with bit of hops at finish. Not bad.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2003

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2003
bland, watery, caramelly crap. slight hallertau noticeable in the finish that redeems it a bit. but not much.

Panzuriel (1281) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Brown in color with a quickly disappearing head. Nice malt aroma. Somewhat weak and wimpy malt flavor that is disappointing. Finishes weakly.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Weak malt nose and light bodied, Miller's version of this famous brew is uncomplicated though refreshing. The subtle malt finish fades very quickly.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2003
I just noticed what style this is listed as, "American Dark" and think that sums up this beer. It is malty and creamy, but it is watered down for the American palate. A grocery store beer.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Translucent walnut color, hardly a head, faint coffee nose. Starts out with a promising malty roastiness but then it abruptly stops and gets thin and watery.
