On tap at the Draught House during the 43rd Anniversary party.
The beer pours a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma is very sweet with a lot of toffee and caramel notes, as well as a ton of sugar. There is little to no hop profile in the aroma.
The flavor is also very sweet and unbalanced. I get a lot of toffee and caramel with not too much else coming through other than a little bit of grain.
Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
The brewery's own website said they modeled this after Negra Modelo so I don't think it was brewed with the beer geek in mind. I don't know how it compares to their target, but I didn't find it very good.

Picked up a growler of this today at the Whip-In Austin. Pours a dark brown, nearly black, color with a fluffy cap of off-white head. Decent retention and spotty lacing. It's a pretty good looking lager, reminds me of a darker Firebrick from Schell.
Nose is malty sweet and damn near bock-ish. Nice nutty background with a lagery yeast twang. Toasty caramel and toffee for the most part.
Has a nice breadth of flavors ranging from sharp burnt sugar to caramel to a clean hop bite on the finish. Body is full for the style and drinks with the greatest of ease. I am quite impressed with this, my first Twisted X offering. A tough style to nail down and they did a great job, it beats the piss out of Negro Modelo and the like. Its been a couple years since I had a Firebrick, but I'll be damned if this one is not at least just as good. I will have no problem tackling this growler. Tasty stuff!

I really just dont know where to begin with this.
Smell is just ....well.. soapy.
taste is pretty awful, so awful since the first one ive had to have 1 snaked in between beers i consider, decent or good, because the taste is so bitter and just very harsh.
mouthfeel is what it is, a beer mouthfeel. not overly heavy although it does stay with you.
very much wanted to like this beer after reading about the brewery, but i just cant fathom why they would bottle this but not the stout i hear so many raving about. Hopefully the xpansion will bring them more success and abililty to actually bottle the better beers.
edit-just wanted to add i drank the whole sixxer to make sure it wasnt a quality issue. All of them had the same overall taste etc(unlike some where ive had a few skunks and the rest were sublime..)
