A very tasty beer.

Bought at Central Market in Fort Worth, Texas but enjoyed here in Oklahoma.

Pours a clear, dark brown-almost black liquid with a very large light tan head.

Malty aroma.

Flavor is a mouthful. Lots of malt but also still dry. Bitter coffee notes. Very toasty. Maybe a little bit of dark chocolate. A little bit of red wine and raisins but it is subtle. Mostly I'm getting earthy-toasty notes, with a little bit of herbs.

Medium-full mouth feel. Just a little prickle on the tongue.

One last note... this beer tastes very fresh.

I have never been a huge negro fan. But I really like this one, it has the right combo of coffee and caramel for me. Sounds crazy but if you have not tried it, make a float with it. A scoop of Blue Bell original vanilla and pour some Lobo Negro over it. Yum!

Found this beer while on our anniversary trip to Fredericksburg Tx. Immediately feel in love with this dark rich double bock? beer. Tried to find it in San Antonio, but no luck.... Smells great smooth taste with a wonderful hint of chocolate caramel flavors. Must try if you can find.

Expecting something like Amberbock, Ziegenbock, or Lone Star Bock, I was pleasantly surprised: (not that those above are necessarily bad, but) this is a substantial beer. It feels concentrated and dense and very much brings chocolate to mind . . . (yes, even before reading that descriptor used by the company.) Absent is cloying sweetness or any medicinal quality.

A German-style beer with a Spanish name seems pretty appropriate for Texas, doesn't it.

This is a beefy brew that commands attention . . . in a good way. I look forward to drinking more of it, trying some food-pairings, and maybe braising a dark-breasted game bird in Lobo Negro.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy dark reddish brown color with a small dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, pear, apple, toast, toffee, biscuit, molasses, nuttiness, light roast, floral, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity of malt notes with light yeast fruitiness. Taste of chocolate, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, pear, apple, light roast, floral, and earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light fruits, light nuttiness, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt flavors with light-moderate fruitiness; with good complexity and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an damn nice dunkel lager! Great balance and robustness of malt flavors with moderate fruitiness; and extremely smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one; one of the better examples in the style I have had.

Bought a sixxer of this knowing by the name of the brewing co that it was a tx brewer so i had to give it a shot.

Mouthfeel was a bit lighter than expected but not bad, carbonation was a bit higher than expected as well. But also came across a bit flat, so kind of a weird dichotomy.

Smell was absolutely unexpected. Toffee and huge nut smell, thought it was a nut brown at first smell.

Taste was DEFINITELY a nut browny taste, not really a black lager imo.

Overall was a decent beer for sure, some of the qualities better than others, some, although not of style, were fantastic.

Id buy again for sure.
