Negra Modelo is one of the best "easy drinking" dark beers around, it has flavor, but finishes lightly, and you don't feel like you have eaten a 3 course meal after you finish one.

Anchor Steam is similar in that regard to me, as are beers like the lesser known Czech offerings like Budweiser Budvar Dark (not available in the U.S.?) or Kozel Cerny.

Many years ago, Michelob made a dark beer that was easy to drink, and although it probably wouldn't have been embraced by microbrew purists, it finished like a standard lager, light and clean, but it tasted more substantial than traditional brews.
