2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Cossab, BsAs - Sadly this bottle had some infection but I could still taste the good rich chocolatey body underneath with some sweetness and a long, malty, cocoa-laced finish. Not as good as it could have been but certainly has potential.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - July 2005
Frothy beige head - medium lasting. The appareance is brownish black. Aroma is faint and i cant discern anything. Flavour begin slightly sour and ends with the thypicall chocolaty and warming afterstaste of bocks....
Funny, the aftertaste is something like bitter chocolate because of the combination of flavors. The brew is nice, but I prefer their Pilsner. Maybe sometime in the future i will give it another chance.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2006 Pours a deep dark mahogany color with a beautiful beige and stable head that shows good retention and leaves a nice lacing.
Excellent, delicious aroma, full of malty power with gorgeous notes of caramel, wood, butterscotch and toffee. Impressive for a beer of this region.
Flavor is sweet with caramel, smokey touches and traces of milk, honey and toffee. Good and really enjoyable with a bit of marginal bitterness. Maybe there’s a slightly unbalanced or oxidized hoppy hint but it’s barely noticeable.
Good medium body with a creamy texture that dissolves nicely in the mouth. Alcohol completely unnoticeable. Good finish but short aftertaste. A great brew from Argentina..

Mahogany brown color. Big off-white frothy head with a lacing that sticks to the walls. Malty aroma of wet wood, smokey and very smoothly alcoholic. Initially acid with a strong grain coffee taste, smooth butterscotch hints. Light to medium body, creamy texture.

Drank this one at Cerveceria Blest in Bariloche. Apart from this being an awesome location, the beer is excellent. This negra (as it is called there) is a very rewarding beer, not sweet, good body, and refreshing.
