Default Looking for a clone recipie

About 20 years ago I fell in love with heiniken dark. (Not dark lager) It was the only beer that I actually preferred at room temp. Sadly, I have been unable to locate that paticluar brew at the local retailer. Does anyone have a clone recipie? I am fixin' to switch to AG, so I can pretty much go either way at this point.

To my knowledge, and that of the beer-world in general, the only brew Heineken makes with the word dark in the name, is their dark lager. Perhaps you mean their Oud Bruin? Or their apparently rather rare stout?

As I said previously, I haven't found it in 2 decades. Perhaps they don't brew it anymore?

I've had it and I'm 30, so if they did stop it hasn't been that long. To my knowledge and recollection it was a dark lager, not an ale. Though, it has been a while so perhaps I'm mistaken.

The Dark Lager is still available. I can get it at my hometown liquor store. My (fuzzy) recollection is a much darker brew, black like Guiness stout. Or, perhaps I just dreamed it
