If you’ve had Michelob, this is about the same, but toastier. Any of your local micros surely produce a better dark, but they probably didn’t when this came out.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 This was the one of the few choices for dark lagers 15 years ago. Seem nice and strong back then but now there are many other better choices. LIght molasses malt aroma. Dark brown color. Light brown sugar malt flavor. Really not bad for a BMC product. Above average American macrobrew.

I used to enjoy this alot. I haven’t seen it lately, but since my tastes have improved, I probably wouldn’t care much for it anymore.

(Bottle) A darker, better version of the regular Michelob. Short on flavor, but no worse than "typical" American lagers.

To me, this tastes like a slightly maltier version of Michelob. Which isn't saying much, but at least some of my scores got out of the cellar.

We used to put peanuts in the bottle before we drank this when I was a kid. That way, you'd at least taste something. I once had this at the brewery tour in Williamsburg, and I must say that it was the best thing that ABC had to offer at the time. Not much has changed.

Though its appearance is a bit unpleasant, this is a good dark beer for someone to enter into the dark beer arena. Its not too complex for those who have untrained palates.

This was a good looking beer with nice head. Decent smell. Needed more flavor.

after returning from an overseas military tour and drinking lots of great beer there, i find this one and think wow maybe i can get some good beer here too..... that was before the micro brewery became dominant. it is an ok michelob beer but just a bad attempt at a flavorful dark beer. looked good poured into a glass. but tasted rather bland. my advice - drink crafted micro-brew!

Not bad for Michelob. The aftertaste fades quick. One of the best Michelob beers out today.
