Not much aroma, but a pleasant sudsy mouthfeel. Dark brown with a golden glint in the globe glass. Decent head that foams up nicely with each small pour. Long nose of nuts and burnt grain.

Some malty flavors along with a fair amount of body. A hint of cream and filberts. Quite darkly roasted that made me think of a Schwartzbier at first. The maltier, fruitier flavor is, I guess, the difference in the categories. I would look for this on tap next time I'm in that part of Texas.

A surprisingly good beer that seems to be more in the German vein than than the usual haphazard styling. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Texas Wine in Fredericksburg.

The beer pours a very dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel with some lightly toasted malt and cocoa notes. A very nice smelling beer. The flavor is made up of a lot of roasted malt and cocoa. I also get some toffee, grass and earth notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.

12 oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a creamy cap of tan head. Decent retention and some nice connecting sheets of lace.

Nose is nutty and chocolaty, a bit like Nutella actually. Fairly sweet and lacks roast or coffee, pretty nice smelling brew here.

Nice flavor profile too...sweetness is tangible but not overboard and the chocolate flavors are really nice. There is still a bit of nutty, caramel character too. The mouthfeel is a treat; rich and creamy for a lager and the carbonation is really fine-bubbled. Fits the style profile fairly well, but also has a bit of a milk stout aspect to it as well. After a bad introduction to Pedernales (the IPA), the Texas Lager and Negro Lobo have impressed me enough to pick up a sixer next time I see it around.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint/tulip glass. This pours a dark brown almost black with a smaller tan head which quickly dissipates. The smells are of caramel, toffee and nuts. The feel is medium. The taste is okay, a little bitter roasted malts, some toffee, not bad.
