Easily the best beer I had while in Barcelona. And the most elusive, none of the markets had it. Had to find it at a bar.

It´s not really a bock, more of a schwartzbier. Damm likes to confuse their styles.

The first thing you notice is the wonderful seductive aroma. The beer is a really solid black lager. Roasty and malty. The hops aren´t too assertive but it works.

3/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Black reddish color with a thin beige head with short retention.
Light aroma of yeast, faint chocolate and caramel.
Flavor of cola, faint toasted and caramel malts and some nuts. Practically no hops.
Light body with good carbonation, slightly tart.
A bit dull taste, far from especial, but not really unpleasant. Just that taste is too simple, basically cola and caramel, but you could say this is a Munich Dunkel.

3.01/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from the 33cL can into a pint glass.

S: Some burned sugar and toast. Caramel malt backbone and some dark malts. OK but not very strong.

T: Almost as easy drinking as cola - which was the first flavor that sprang to mind when drinking this beer. It's basically cola, right down to the carbonation level and mouthfeel. There is also some richer malt in the back there, but overall cola with a hint of caramel and bread. Instersting.

Overall very very drinkable, although it doesn't drink at all like a beer. This is oddly enough a dark beer that could be refreshing on a hot day. A strange beer for sure, but ok I guess. Different from the style, but not too too bad.

250 ml. bottle. Dark brown colour with red reflections when watched to the light. Small beige head, fades soon, no lace. Smell of dark fruits, caramel, damp earth and burnt wood. A bit watery in the palate, taste of molasses, dark fruits, caramel, Earthy finish.

Small bottle of 250 ml at home, poured into a snifter.
Very nice dark mahogany colour with a thin line of beige head that disappears fast too.
Aroma is malty with dark fruits and some light chocolate.
Very sweet on the taste, with a hint of alcohol, although ABV is only 5,4%. A bit tart too, with a short finish of light bitterness.
Full on the body with average carbonation.
Overall quite nice beer.

3.1/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Deep garnet verging on brown with beige lumpy head that laces well.
Malt syrup and maybe berry jam on the nose – cloys some - with a bit of toasted granola.
Some hazelnut, some dark toast, some blueberry skins but mostly just treacly malts over light hay hops.
Sticky toffee pudding and salted caramel linger. Light-medium, crisp, soft but a bit sticky.

“Negra Munich” on the can, so is this a bock or a Munich Dark lager? Lines up better as the later – more color than flavor. But not even really a good lager underneath. A lobotomized version of the style.

Exp July 2013

A: Pretty damn dark with nearly zero carbonation. No head, just scum.
S: Sweet coffee, but no cream. A hair syrupy.
T: Mild, not so toasty, barely a hair of bitterness.
M: Almost moderate sting, but no distinct bubbles felt.
O: Easy to drink, mild, pretty okay.

330ml can. Served at cool temperature .Pokal glass. Review on jan´12.Enjoyed many times both on-tap & bottle/can. Dark amber in color, deep ruby to the light. Off-white creamy, medium size bubbled, crown. Nice lacing on sides. Roasted malts with chocolate hints to the nose. Toasted malt upfront, dry bitterness in mouth. Velvet palate but unfortunately quite fizzy sensation. Medium body, heavy carbonation. Subtle herbal finish. Wide availability –many supermarkets & non specialized snack-bars- represents its most important danger. Watch up correct temperature & bottle/service conditions before enjoyed it . Actually a lot of gallons show lackness of proper transport & service requeriments.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Can served into an Estrella Damm goblet in Ibiza, Spain. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were very low.

A: Pours a far better head than the bottled version: three to four fingers with nice cream and thickness. Retention is decent; about 2.5 minutes. Black/dark amber in colour.

Sm: Smells worse than the bottled version, mainly because it's so light. Lightly hopped barley and nutty notes.

T: Tastes considerably worse than the bottled version. There's more cream but less overall flavour. Just one act of cream, barley, slight malt, and dry nuts. Too simple. Built crappily for the style. Imbalanced.

Mf: Coarse and dry, especially on the finish. Dries out the tongue. Bleh.

Dr: Well priced but poorly made. Get the bottled version if you're going to try this; it's far better.

3.63/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml can poured into a stein

pours a deep cola color, somewhat reddish as well, and a two finger dark tan head which dissipates fairly quickly

not much in the way of aroma, perhaps some dark malts but not much going on in this department

dark malts at the beginning, definite sweetness as well, a slight chocolate note and bitterness of the malts comes at the end. fairly highly carbonated; a little thin perhaps for a bock.

overall, one of the best mass-produced spanish beers out there, however, perhaps this is damning with faint praise. still, i enjoyed it, quite drinkable.
