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.

Dark reasonable body. Light foam. Highly carbonated. No long after taste.

Not bad. Dark pour with reasonable head and lacing. Overly carbinated, but it is a megabrew. Flavors are better than most of their products. This is one to look for when there aren't any microbrews available.

This is one of the best dark beers I've ever had. Actually has some charachter. I sense thick caramel and roasted nuts. Not bad. Not bad at all!

Didn't care for this one. Too beer can tasting for me. Somebody on here described a beer he had as very aluminum. Add very bitter and this is what you've got.

This one is almost there. I actually smell roasted malts, almost nutty. Artifical carbonation still sucks but this is AB after all.

My favorite AB product. Slight dark roast flavor, reallly weak hops, typical AB light apple flavor. This beer looks decent and is remarkable only in how much better it is than other AB products.
