Aroma hints at some roasted malts, but is mostly neutral. This looks as if somebody dropped some caramel cola coloring in it--fizzy macro head--some soapy lace...Flavor does feature some malt, but little balancing hops here...tell-tale tang in the finish...Carbonation is excessive, and accentuates watery palate...Still, not a bad-tasting product, a reasonable alternative to most of the mainstream macro lagers out there.

Cant really complain about this. A bit too carbonated. Mild slightly complex flavorings. Not sure what theyre going after with this. Only place you ever see this crap is at chain restaurants.

My first introduction to dark beer. While darker in color, and more body to it, the beer is pretty weak to what most people expect from a dark beer

All in all its not a bad dark beer. The taste is a little weak.

This was it -- the one that started me off on beer drinking. I thought beer was awful, because i had tried the king of beers, and that was a joke. then, in 1986, the fall of my sophomore year, i found mick dark. sure its lousy compared to what i love now, but it was something i could drink, and even enjoy then.

Being a college freshman in 1987, this was a heavier beer you could get before I learned about imports. The thing about Michelob Dark vs. REAL dark beers, is that you can drink a whole six pack and not feel like you ate a large meal. Still not a great beer, but if you want a dark beer flavor without the heaviness, you cant go wrong with this one.

Dark beer for people that dont actually like to have any flavor in their beer. I tried this at the American Legion bar where there were only michelob beers on tap. It didnt take long to go back to bottled beer. Lame.

I used to buy this in the mid-1980s; it tasted better than most macros and was cheaper than the bad imports that were then available. Happily, I no longer have to drink it.
