much better than regular lowenbrau. however, the "dark" label is kind of a charade, like heineken dark. it is still remarkably similar to original lowenbrau, just with an amber color and a thicker body. i was expecting more from a dark german lager, but this was tasty nonetheless.

Not as rewarding as a dark beer should be. This lager did give me a different aftertaste then im used to from a lager.

This was the first ’dark’ beer I ever had. I was a bit surprised at the time, having only drank crappy Wisconsin macros until then. But after a couple I really enjoyed it. Now, I would rate this as an average ’dark’. Nice color, good malt flavor.

I really like this one. A good full flavor with plenty of balance for sweetness and malts. I was impressed.

I wasn't expecting much and I didn't get it. Smells and looks kind of good. I'd take it over most mass-produced made in the USA swill, but not over most other German beers.

A bit of a disappointment. Clear dark copper colour, OK head. Aroma of honey and some roasty malts. Flavour is a bit roasty for mine and not enough base malt. Drinkable but hardly memorable.

In 1979 I used to drink this stuff when I got off work. It was one of the few beers around at that time that weren't pale American shit. Dark chocolate, with not enough head and what there is doesn't stay around long. Cidery taste on the backend that is either hops or something fell from the pits of Hades. It was OK back in the day--now it just sucks.

this is very good beer for a mass produced beer but not easy to get in the USA
