amazing. i can’t wait to drink this on christmas morning. it has a very malty palate. a wonderful dark lager. DrinkHellaBeer (1) - USA - FEB 24, 2010 does not count
It’s got the flavor of a stout while as refreshing as a lager, it’s the perfect combination without sacrifice, unless you like bitter beers. Beer Guy99 (251) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2002
A good dark brew. Some coffee / chocolate flavor notes from roasted malts, mild but nice hops flavors and complex notes. A very nice entry from Blitz-Weinhard. Let's see if Miller can manage to keep their crappy influence out of the fine line of Weinhard beers now that they've gained control of this classic American brand. weusebio (69) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 9, 2002
Not as dark as I would choose, but a good beer nonetheless. Give this to your budmillercoors drinking friends to work them into better stuff. ghawener (1614) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - APR 11, 2009

Bottle: con el aleman; realmente mi tipo son las que la malta predomina y luego entra el kick de hops - a lo ingles

nice balance in the malt and hop influence and the smooth finish, nice frothy head that lasted dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2009
This has a pretty good roasty creamy aroma. Flavor is better than the rest of the H.W. beers as well. Some roast, nuttiness, malt and cream. Actually a pretty good beer. Reid (2622) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 Ok comes in the weird shaped Henry brown 12 oz bottle, nice handsome blue and gold label.
Nice enough looking beer for one so cheap..its a dark ruby colour when held to the light..small tan head that goes very quickly to be replaced by some good lacing.
I actually liked the aroma of this beer very much caramel and roasted malts are very upfront .
After a good show by the aroma the tatse was a little too thin..yes its pleasant but it isnt very "upfront" yes theres caramel and chocolate flavors.
Pretty average on the tongue,,flavour doesn’t last as long as i would have liked.
Overall its a good cheap beer.

This is new and out for 2005 and wow this was a great beer. I liked the flavor, aroma and the overall tones this ber brought out. A special limited edition I think they got right. It is a dark winter beer with great overall taste to drink. Good Job I will try another. Beer SNOBS will like this beer.
