An interesting dark beer. Hints of chocolate and nuts, moreso nuts. Nearly bitter but not quite. Rather smooth. circa 2008

Due to my appreciation & satisfaction for the classic Heineken Euro Pale Lager I decided to hunt down a 6 pack of the Heineken Dark Lager. I agree with caramel cola type of taste that folks are describing in this beer. This would be easy to session, you will put up a big struggle to drink several bottles of this. It was worth the hunt down to drink some of Heineken Dark Lager. If you can get this is your area you know what you gotta do. Cheers!

This is my all time favorite beer! I find it’s quite enjoyable on a crisp fall day. The first time I had this was about 35 years ago. I’ve always loved Heineken lager, but the brown label/bottle on this caught my curiosity, so I tried one. It’s not bitter, in fact it’s balanced very well. Nice toasted malt taste upfront, goes down smooth no unpleasant after taste. Not overly hopped( thank goodness), poured into a frozen mug, it has thin lacing and soft head. Approximately 2 fingers. Great aroma, very pleasant to drink. Will take this one over any craft crap beer!

Bought a 6-pack from Sam's club $7.27
Dark color
Medium mouthfeel
Medium carbonation
Sweet, light caramel taste. Nothing exciting. Kind of a flat taste0
Overall just ok. I wouldn't buy it again. I prefer the Heineken lager,

It pours a dark cola color with a thin tan head. The smell is of caramel and the taste is rich caramel and roasted malts. The mouthful is medium with a dry finish. Overall a decent offering.
