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.

L: Pours a deep dark brown with nice clarity when you hold it up to the light. Mahogany hues around the edges. A one finger slightly tan head rises to the rim of the glass.

S: immediately notice the presence of molasses, roasted malts, and chocolate.

T: Pumpernickel bread crust, molasses, bitter dark chocolate, and hints of roasted malts in the taste. There's even something reminiscent of root beer. Balanced and drinkable. Comes

F: Not too bitter, deliciously creamy. Medium body with medium carbonation.

O: This beer is great, and I wish more American brewers would try their hand at Munich Dunkel Lagers because there's a lot of room to play with these flavors and experiment. Until then, seek out Lobo Negro when you are in Texas.

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.
