JEROME NEGRA IS A DARK, COMPLEX
YET EXTREMELY DRINKABLE ALE.
SIMILAR TO A STOUT, THIS HAS
A BLACK COLOR, A THICK, DARK
CREAMY HEAD AND EXUDES DARK
CHOCOLATE AND ESPRESSO FLAVORS. IT FINISHES SMOOTH AND
IS REFRESHING WITHOUT
BEING TOO HEAVY OR
Jerome is named for the family dog, who was a well-known German Shepard in the very little mountain town of El Salto, which is on the edge of a
glacier-feed spring high in the Andes.
These beers are painstakingly made with only the finest of national
ingredients. The barley malt comes from the famous Argentine grasslands
know as the “Pampas”, the cascade hops come from Patagonia, outside
Bariloche. The beers have also been certified by the “Slow Foods” international group for their quality and pure origin

If there’s an underrated beer in the world, it’s this animal. This is a complicated beer, mixing sweet breads with coffee and chocolate and fig. It freakin’ kills. Harder to find at retail than it should be, but I guess the herd mentality ratings on this one more or less explain that. Great beer.

600 ml bottle aptly enough, shared with my Argentine girlfriend who had never heard of it. I would first like to say that this beer blem my impressions of what South American beer normally tastes like away. This stout would stack up against almost 98% of all microbrewed stouts from the USA or classic brews from Europe. This beer pours dark as night with a chocolatey brown head. The aroma is sweet and sugary with just a hint of roasted bitterness. The flavor that follows is the same very bitey like espresso or bitter chocolate, followed up by a candy-like sweetness as it warms in the glass. The alcohol level is perfect, the mouthfeel is full yet a bit oily in texture. The finish is smooth, yet robust. Very, very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Opaque brown/black color and a head that quickly disipated. Tastes something like original Guiness - really toasted, smoky malt, with chocolate that comes and goes. Pretty dry, and a nice bitterness to balance the non-sweetness? Pretty nice mouthfeel - starts medium, then thins out. Very good.

definite, but fleeting fine aromatics. nice light head that lasts and a bit of lace. Opaque black with brown highlights. Luscious chocolately roasty coffee and bitter sweetness. Bit thin and overcarbonated. Pretty good beer really. This was brought back from Seattle by friend Paul B. Thanks mano. Let’s hear if for Argentino Micro Brews!!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated as Jerome Andean Stout.
~Pours pitch black with creamy light lasting brown head.
~Aroma of light chocolate malt, some dark fruit and glass.
~Chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit and smoke malt woody flavor.
~Thin oily feel. Bittersweet buttery finish.
~Enjoyable stout. Be good as a night cap. Don’t think I could drink more than one pint of this. Would taste good with a steak. Very hearty. Perhaps even using it as a marinade for a tri tip would be good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
660 ml. Opaque black with a medium head that settles into a creamy, lasting film. Aroma is dried hickory wood, raisin, smoke, coffee and caramel. Flavor is hickory-smoked meat, dark fruit, peach, piquant green herbs, chalk, mocha and hints of caramel. Medium-heavy body is watery, way too bubbly, and finishes dry.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a complete black-out with foamy lacing. Aroma is of malts and brown sugar, and a little bit of dark berry. Flavor is sweet - again the brown sugar, a little bit of whiskey and chocolate towards the end. Strangely, I get a chest burn despite this only being 6 1/2 percent. Palate is oily and sticky, sweet aftertaste. A very hearty beer that I enjoyed a lot. Overall, very good.

Oapque black beer. Light crisp palate. Smooth malt, sourish like a good porter. Very light smoke, barely there. Mild sour fruit. Smooth, almost creamy, dark malt and a nice minerally finish. Finally a decent Argentinian beer!
