Retired? Bottle in neighbors cooler. Very thin, malty, but with mild roast notes. Doesnít do much for me. Very bland.

12oz bottle (old notes0-Pours cola like with a decent head. Aroma of malt. Taste of the same along with the typcial pale lager. This light bodied brew was the first dark beer I ever tried.

Cantabrian (812) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 10, 2013
Smells like white coffee that has been left on the cup overnight. Flavour is nothing, mud, sewage water and brown sugar. NOT retired. The beer is still alive, made in SL, MO.

futre7 (134) - Taipei, TAIWAN - OCT 13, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Bottle , 7-11 Taipei City .Got some hateful reviews this one. Thoroughly undeserved also. I actually like Michelob and the dark isnít a bad beer at all. Okay it isnít a írealí dark beer but most of the lagers on the market are false tasting crappy macros. Nose is dark malt with a nice pour and thin head. It has a mild burnt malt taste with a thick malty mouthfeel. In Taiwan itís 5.2% not 5% so the extra strength means yoiu get your moneys worth.

Iím rating this on memory because I donít really want to have to drink another one. Iím gonna second the dirty water comment below - I wouldnít go so far as to consider it a proper dark, just crappy lager with food colouring.

Pours a lucid coffee brown, nose is like a wet dog and a struck match, tastes like dirty water.

Bottle. This one is mostly on memory. This was a favorite of mine back in college. My friends said it tasted like "motor oil". From what I remember it had a burnt toast, coffee type of taste. It was dark it color and I liked it. I guess Iíve always loved dark beer.

Overall Impression: I have almost no recollection of this one at all, but I do have an old rating siting here, so Iíll add it to RB...
Old Rating: Tastes like Michelob but a different color

Basically tastes exactly the same as the regular Michelob except that you get a hint of dark malts in the aroma and flavor. Still subpar, still better than most A-B products.

So they take a regular Michelob, take some caramel malt and burn it to a crisp, added it to the Michelob recipe and hence you have Michelob Dark. This sucks, don’t waste your time if you are reading this.
