355 ml bottle. Pours a dark black-amber with a large foamy, clingy, pillowy, clingy tan head that slowly fades. Taste is of caramel, roasted malt, chocolate and some smoke. Similar aroma. Has good mouthfeel, but the body is a little thin. Easy to drink and rather tasty.

vinivini (321) - BELARUS - OCT 19, 2013
From retail showing 4,7% ABV. Deep brown light to medium body, Thin porous head. Aroma of brown sugar, roasted malt, bread, rusk. The taste is of sweet & bitter in similar quantities. Disappointingly abrupt finish. Well I’ve tried it.

I would classify this as a Schwarzbier or a Munich Dunkel, although it is definitely not up to par with most of either variety. This is a very unobtrusive brew, but it needs more of a kick to be anything special. Mild malty flavor, very dark with a minimal head and lacing.

beerguy101 (5276) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 26, 2002
Dark brown color, medium head. Nice malted, slightly roasted malts, some malt sweetness. Good hop balance. Nice flavor, perhaps a little mild? . Mouthfeel is full. The “original Munich formula”. A change from the Lowenbrau of a few years ago. Very nice. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, slightly bitter.

It basically a regular lowenbrau made dark. Nothing special here.

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.

This was the first ’dark’ beer I ever had. I was a bit surprised at the time, having only drank crappy Wisconsin macros until then. But after a couple I really enjoyed it. Now, I would rate this as an average ’dark’. Nice color, good malt flavor.

Pours a deep dark amber color. Aromas of roast malts and hops. Big hop flavor, light body with almost no aftertaste.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Rated 12/4/06: Pretty standard fare here, used to be a dirt cheap sixer back in the day. Seems harder to come across now. Weak aroma very grainy, nice dark pour moderate head. Very quenching and drinkable. Flavor has some bite to it, good maltiness and very little hop presence. Average dunkel but decent for the buck.

12oz bottle Brewed by Miller (old Notes)-Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was a pretty darn tasty brew back in the day.
