L: Dark brown. Love the bottle design.

S: Pretty dry with a slight sweetness; Bready.

T: Great blend between sweetness and the bitterness you get with a dark beer.

F: Goes down smooth with very limited fizz.

O: I like this beer a lot. It goes down smoother than any dark beer I've ever had. At a Mexican restaurant, this is a far better option than a watery Dos Equis.

Got a bottle at The Taco Stand.
Nothing really special. Good with a spicy taco and a hot winter day.

Look: A clear, dark brown. White, short-lived head
Aroma: Rather complex. Slightly sweet, browned/dried fruit, raisin/fig
Taste: Strong raisin that's a little overpowering but enjoyable.
Feel: light/medium body that makes it easier to drink with the heavy raisin taste.
Overall: If I ever eat at a good Mexican restaurant I'll be looking for this beer. I can see it going really well with a rich meaty dish.

I've never had this style before so it's a bit hard to rate this per style but nonetheless this is a decent lager. Aroma is sweet and malty - some fig and a bit of fruitiness detected. Pours a copper red with decent head that dissipates quickly - carbonation is medium. Tastes like a light porter, easy to drink, smooth on the tongue - very little bittering hops. A decent beer and a great option at a Mexican restaurant over a watery Dos Equis.

When poured, beer has a small head, a dark brown to copper color. Smell is very bready, malty, and sugar are present. Taste is quite interesting-- almost nothing but malt and hops, and taste is non-descript actually. Medium carbonation, good mouthfeel, and very clean finish. Almost no aftertaste at all. Very refreshing and light feel.

Beer is quite different in that it is nothing like a Porter or Stout, but more like a solid lager. After getting past the stereotypes of dark beer and assuming this is a strong beer , this beer is actually refreshing. This might become my new 'lawnmower beer'. Would go good with many entrees at dinnertime too.

This one is a bit of a puzzle. Looks like a darker ale (not stout), foams like one, smells medium and tastes medium with a light seltzer finish. Confusion or initial impressions aside, it's a drinkable beer, not one to be kicked off the table necessarily, just doesn't provide any distinguishing flavour characteristics from dollar draft night.

I just didn’t like it. I’m not into sweet beers. Had I known it was that style I would have never bothered. To me , dark beer screams porter or stout. This was nothing like that. Ewwww. Never again.

Inoffensive easy-drinker. The dark / negra malt isn't all that dark & not complex, otherwise just a pretty straightforward shelf lager, light & crisp with off flavors
