Good body and respectable flavor, but sometimes skunked (needs to be shipped faster).

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Thick tan head on top of a dark brown body. The smell is subtle or I have a cold. Hints of coffee that’s about it. It falters on the palette towards the end but the flavors are good and distinct. This is one of my favorite beer styles and this beer is a great reason why.

Can. Clear deep brown color almost without head. Aroma - Malt, caramel, metal. Taste - Bittersweet, mushrooms, dirt, malt. Strange.

From old tasting notes. Clear reddish brown color with a big foamy tan head. Molasses-like roasted malt aroma. Sweet roasted malt flavor with a smooth malty finish. Pleasant semi-sweet aftertaste. Nicely balanced and flavorful.

Ok then, I’ll rate this one and mostly all of the 20 some beers I haven’t rated are coming next. This stuff tastes like caramel syrup water, smells the same. It’s balance is all out of whack. It’s not as bad as a few beers that I’ve rated lower, but I can’t understand most beer drinker’s taste. I guess that’s a good thing. This may get dumped where the Colt 45 went!

I enjoyed this beer. I love Heineken and I enjoy stouts so it was easy for me to decide to try it. I found it pretty good, but not an "OMG" moment ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a small off white head. Fairly thin body with a slight aroma of sweet malts. Pretty ordinary and not very remarkable. Not much flavor at all. Just a hint of some roasted sweet malts in the taste.

one of my favorite everyday beers. has a great "barley berry" or "dark fruit of the grain" flavor. Leaves your palate with a good grape-ish flavor that I find more attractive than most of the other International pasteurized dark lagers now available from Germany. Since its pasteurized it travels well in the summer for distribution in the USA. Code date is 5 for 2015 and the day of the year follows 032 being Feb 1st, etc. 2-4 months after brew date is acceptable. Einbecker Schwarz is one of the few pasteurized german beers and is maybe better overall but doesn’t match the palate that Heineken Dark leaves. A underrated/hidden masterpiece for International pasteurized lager.

Brown color ; medium-sized off-white head . Nice aroma of roasted malt , bread and caramel. Taste is weaker and too sweet . Not bad at all.

ozzy70 (1170) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with slowly diminishing white head. Aroma of light coffee. Taste, coffee and malts, sweet.

dbhenry (139) - El Paso, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bland malt taste with insufficient hops. Good color. Small head. It tastes somewhat watery. A mass produced beer with little attention to detail.
