Cerveza Negra has roasted malty notes which extends to its taste. It is full-flavored and full bodied. Bitterness is moderate but still smooth.

330 mL bottle. Dark brown, with a little ruby notes and a small, tan head. The aroma is heavy caramel, pine, peat, and a little black bread. Roasted sweetness up front, with a mellow sour and bitter finish. Medium body, sticky and a little acidic. Overall, this beer has a surprisingly complex nose, but the palate is weak. Not bad, though.

This beer is unfortunately not widely available in the Philippines, as it is a step up from the very poor SM Pilsener. Still, it’s not much, a light and watery dark beer. I found it occasionally in Manila and Cebu, but cycling around the country never ran into it elsewhere. Sold as Negra.

Grumbo (711) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle brought back to UK from Cebu by Matt. I’ve had this in Philippines some years ago, and recall enjoying it then, and wasn’t disappointed this time around. Pours a dark purple/black with a small tan colour head. Sweet toffee malt aroma, with dark fruits. Quite heavily sweet, light bitterness, medium body, oily texture. Long bittersweet finish. Decent enough brew.

Bottle from Liquor Collection Honolulu 251214. Thin dark brown to black colour with an unusual sweet flavour, almost honey like. Nice enough.

Branded as Cerveza Negra. Bottle at seafood restaurant in Panglao, Philippines. Much better than the other San Miguel beers. Roasted malts with a lot of caramel.

From a bottle. This beer is an oasis in a desert of really poor beer here in the Philippines. Nice roasted aroma, smooth and quite mellow flavours, better than I had expected. Much better.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear very dark brown color, tan head cover, bands of lace. Taste is lightly toasted caramel malt that grows as it moves through the palate, adding carbonation bite on the swallow to keep things in balance. Very simple and straight-forward Dunkel, but really easy to drink none-the-less.

Clear reddish brown color with an ample tan head. Sweet roasted malt nose is pleasantly subtle. Slightly bittersweet roasted malt has chocolate notes. Nice body and complexity.

"pretty decent food beer - light roast, chocolate, and a hint of coffee and hops. Fairly straight forward, bordering on generic, but good for a mexi lager. i’d drink again, but not buy again."
