Pours a dark burgundy with a finger of khaki foam that wears down to a foamy ring. Aroma is plum, spice, toast, biscuit, and earth malts. Flavor profile is plum and raisins as sweet additions, and toast, biscuit, earth, and bread malts to form a firm and strong base. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy with a medium-thin consistency. Overall, good plum and sugary notes, especially in the flavor profile, all the while allowing malts to be the showcase. Straightforward and simplistic.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

Faint toasted carmel scent. The off-white head fades to a thin lace. A translucent, deep umber color makes this brew inviting. I like that this beer has a hint of stout toastiness with the smooth taste of a lager. Carbination is medium and adds an interesting sharpness. Perhaps a bit thin, but a nice dry, bitter quality saves this from being average.

Has a cereal,grain. Malt aroma. Taste is very similar but a bit of that sour skunk taste. Left a little bit of an off putting aftertaste that lingered a while. While out to eat at a Mexican restaurant it was the best choice available and worked ok. Would not seek this out otherwise

Look: Poor bottle design (fat and short). Does not fit in my metal Yeti cuzi
Smell: not sure, I have chronic sinus issues
Taste: Pretty good, drinkable any time.
Feel: refreshing.
Overall: good solid beer. We partake of Negra's after every Friday night soccer game. Granted, we have a very small selection to choose from, but we are happy they offer it. Also to be noted, my team has a variety of palates and this beer satisfies them all.

Overall modelo negro is far better than most Mexican adjunct lagers I’ve had. This beer is a very dark amber color, darker than DosEquis Amber (a beer I would compare this too). The sip is a tad watery but still has more flavor than an average beer of this type. A bit more bitter than I expected It to be, the beer leaves a distinct aftertaste, one that isn’t all too appealing. Overall,a solid option to pair with spicy food at a Latin restaurant, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this beer at a store.

One of the finest vienna/amber lagers that I have tasted. Flavorful & bold. Much better than the Modelo Especial imo. If you have not had this beer then you ought to go out and try it. It sports classy looking label art as well. Now this is a beer that is worthy of having that fancy looking gold foil around its neck. I am not seeing any date on the bottle though. It does not take a scientist to learn how to put a bottled/canned on date Cheers! B (

Medium tall, white head not persisting. No lacing. Amber clear. Medium-high aroma of malt, bready notes. Later bit of veggies in the end. Lightly toasted, medium sweet flavor. Moderately carbonated, smooth. Light palate. Light dry finish. Decent.
