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.

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.
