COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our nod to the classic Mexican Dark Beer, this dark lager is rich with roasted and caramel characters. Lightly hopped and bittered, this smooth dark beer will have you going to the dark side.

Draft sample @ brewery during RBSG09. Pours a clear dark brown with a large off white head. The aroma. which was very light, was roasted malt with mildly sweet caramel and a touch of cocoa. The flavor was much of the same; roasted malts, caramel and cocoa. Nothing really stood out with this beer.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Draught at the brewpub during RBSG09. Dark brown with a creamy, off-white head. smooth chocolatey, malty aroma. Sweet, dusty, powdery chocolate flavor with almost no hops. Light bodied and a little sticky. This was ok, although a little to sweet, be it for lack of hops or under-attenuation.
