Negra Modelo Dark is a red/brown with a generous beige head that quickly fades. There is no appreciable aroma. Unfortunately, the tongue follows the nose and there is no taste either. It's like drinking water, but at least with water, you may get a mineral taste. After it warms for a while, finally a little blah sweetness. That's it. Feel is light bodied with little carbonation, again, watery. There is insufficient taste to be considered drinkable.

Negra is a very weak, bland beer. Not worth ever trying again.

Served with a meal at Abuela's mexican resturaunt in KC. Had to request a non-frosted glass. Poured into a pint glass. I discarded the lime wedged onto the rim. Dark clear amber color. Hardly any head, no lace. Slight musty malt smell. Taste is salty with a touch of citrus. Light watery mouthfeel. Overall, my impression is, eh. I think I prefer Dos Equis Dark when eating Mexican food.

Pours a dark red-brown colour with reasonable off-white head that's slightly too fizzy, and sinks quickly to leave a film of light foam. Lacing when tilted is decent but nothing special. Otherwise flat. Pretty boring.

Nose is a fairly sour affair with large chunks of burnt character, very chemical - actually smells quite like lacquer - slight vinous edge, but ultimately fairly thin in fragrance, not much character and not very good.

Taste is fairly bad, a lot of sticky adjuncty character, sweet corn with a sickly syrupy mouthfeel, a big hit of methyl alcohol on the very front of the palate, not because it's heavy but because there's just no other flavour to hide behind. Bread yeast character on the finish, not much bitterness or hoppiness, not fresh, not nice.

Oh! I'm so disappointed with this, I thought maybe, just maybe, Mexicans could brew a dark beer with more character than their pale shit. But no, I'm not enjoying this. Not undrinkable, but not pleasant.

On-tap at Jose’s Blue Sombrero in Waukesha , WI. This pours a brownish amber color with a light beige head. Since it was served with a lime wedge, that’s all I can smell. Texture is light and thin, a very mild taste of grain. Like most Mexican beers, thin and watery.
