I don't think I could drink this beer alone for too long. It has a light feel but hints of a roasty taste reminiscent to darker beers.

Now this is just personal taste, but after awhile the light feel of the beer wears on me and I end up really wishing this was a deep, rich beer. However if you drink this while eating a burger or something, it's refreshing as hell; it begs to be paired up with some food.

Served on tap at The Cubano in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a clear dark amber in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate amounts of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness and just a hint of nuttiness.

T: Similar to the smell, the flavor of this beer has a light to moderate body of caramel malts that imparts some light amount of sweetness upfront. There are some hints of nuts and a light hop bitterness that lingers in the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth but slightly thin.

O: This beer is refreshing, easy to drink, and enjoyable. I could definitely put down a few of these in an evening and it pairs very nicely with the flavors of Mexican, Cuban, and South American food.

Much better than I expected and better than regular Modelo, this beer pours dark (duh ... given the name). It's a black-ish red with a tiny head and minimal latticework. The smell is virtually non-existent with the alcohol ringing through. The taste, happily, is better than the smell. It has the taste of a richer, more flavorful lager, and it is also more rich and textured. I liked this beer, but I probably won't buy it.
