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

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!

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.

Bottle. Ima assume that this is the same as "Michelob Classic Dark", with Mandarin letters on the bottle, and 5 minutes of Google could not refute this. Joe thinks it might be Amber Bock, so I’m still not sure. Who hell the knows, it’s probably a mixture of both. Thin, mahogany. Actually has some light fruitiness in the aroma which follows into the bread-malty taste...is that a hint of YEAST in something that AB brewed? Why, I think it is. There’s hope after all...but I still can’t call it more than "Very not bad for a macro"

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 was my favorite beer as a newly able to drink 21 year old. I walked into Food Lion with a six pack of this, and the girl at checkout did not ID me. WTF???

A very smooth, drinkable beer, but lacking the oomph needed from a dark.

This Michelob beer has a deep brown color too it, similar to an amber almost. Pretty smooth, and not too overpowering.

OK beer, nothing to scream about, but nothing to turn down your nose at either. Good malts and hop spicy enough, but just to much carbonation for my taste.

For as much of a joke as their other ’beers’ are, this would be classified as an accident at the Busch plant.
