COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Looks dark, tastes light. Its Ontarios favourite dark lager. A dark beer that is slowly brewed with Canadian grown malted barley, specialty coloured malts, imported hops and pure cultured brewers yeast. Dark lagers are enjoyed all year long, and theyre not as filling as ales. Waterloo Dark will cut some of the heaviness in sauce-based meat dishes. Waterloo Dark is an equally perfect beer to go with appetizers suitable for watching sports games, or used as an actual ingredient when preparing a meal. Experience what this great dark "light tasting" lager has to offer and why it has won multiple awards at the World Cup of Beer, Canadian Brewing Awards, Ontario Brewing Awards and the Monde Selection International Institute For Quality Selections.

Patrickctenchi (6330) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle: Pours dark, ruby-lit brown/black with a frothy beige head. Dark, roasty caramel, chocolate aroma. Flavour is roasted and rich....slightly black-pepper accented caramel malt..chocolate, cola.....maybe even a slight whiff of smokiness. Light, but not watered-down... Curious about the low ratings on this....I thought it was a bit dark for the style, but pretty tasty.

luttonm (5339) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Can in Toronto. Pretty typical dark lager (per schwarz over in SEE), lighter brown-black body, clear. Light sipper, clean with some caramel and roast. Ok.

chinchill (4538) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2015
12 oz bottle. Nice smooth feel, judge right amount of soft carbonation, and good looking, with a large pillowy head. The aroma is only acceptable but the flavor is fine. Good dark lager.

BreWedge (511) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 29, 2015
473 ml can. Full transparency, I dont know how long this has been in my fridge. Pours a clear, light, nutty brown with a large beige head. Aromas were bread and chalk. Tastes are grainy, roasty, and on the dry side. Light bodied with a short, mild tinny finish. Not offensive but not much in the way of character either, it is a lager after all.

PrattBrat (30) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Very dark ruby red-brown colour with a tan head. Good retention and moderate lacing. Aroma of toasty nuts & earthy. Tastes of bread with a trace of nuts and caramel. Medium body & carbonation. Just ok.

samzim (405) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 Sweet aroma of caramel and dark roasted malt. Clear mahogany colour. Sweet front with short bitter finish; more malt and caramel flavour. Light body with high carbonation. More interesting than the average typical lager.

Daefido (9) - Welland, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2015 does not count
Enjoyable drink. Nice smell. sweety taste. However, it needs something more intense, I assume.

Pas mal mais saveurs retenues, finalement peu goteuse. Bouteille bue dans un petit restaurant Gore Bay, Manitoulin Island, Canada, courant mai 2013.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Une boisson rouge trs fonce, avec une mousse de couleur crme la surface ; le nez est assez discret, et rappelle la fois le sucre cuit, le raisin rouge, et la rglisse douce. La bouche est mince, les saveurs retenues, encore ce fruit qui revient hanter le buveur, avec une finale dfinitivement dans le raisin, le tout tant trs ptillant. Cette rousse plus fonce que dordinaire est assez juste dans ses saveurs, mais demeure un choix de seconde, voire troisime zone. Rien pour y revenir.
