COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many Mexican beer styles today are descendants of old Austrian styles, from when Austria ruled Mexico in the late 19th century. Our Dos Perros is made with German Munich malt, English Pale malt, and Chocolate malt, and hopped with Perle and Saaz hops. To lighten the body, as many Mexican brewers do, we add a small portion of flaked maize. The result is a wonderfully bready malt aroma, balanced with some maize sweetness and a noble hop finish.

12oz bottle. Pours a mahogany brown and no head. I was very surprised at how dark it is. Nutty and bready aroma. Nice caramel and a touch of banana. Much better than I thought it would be.

jkwood04 (4119) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 7, 2013
12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours copper/brown with a beige head. Aroma of pale and lightly toasted malts plus a little bit of hops. Flavor the same with nothing sticking out. Average texture. A boring beer.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown with a persistent white head. Cereal/slightly smoky aroma. Taste is thin, cereal, weird artificial chocolate. Overly sweet. Pretty bad.

Pours a clear dark amber with a long-lasting 1/4" ivory head and plentiful dots of lace. Taste opens with a game attempt at caramel malt, but it doesn’t have a chance against mild, but distinct bittering. In the finish, a hazelnut prune lingers on the tongue. Somewhat oily, somewhat bloating, not as drinkable as the best Mexican regionals.

Good color. Mild aroma. Very bisquetty but not bad. A different taste I haven't had before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

very biscuit-y, on the nose and palate. a bit watery otherwise, a bit of oily film on the tongue. not bad honestly.

Poured out of a bottle and a light head that was fizzy and disbursed rather quickly. It has a coffee/malt aroma with a watery coffee taste. I agree with an earlier reviewer that this is more of a nut brown ale that alt-beer

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours dark copper with a small white. Nose is corn syrup, cherries. Not much else. Maybe some caramel. Smells to sweet. The taste is as the nose is, to sweet. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a giant fan of this one. Overly sweet, light brown appearance, strangely spiced. Had this from a bottle at the Beechwood Lounge in Vicksburg in Jan, 2013.

It’s rare to find a dark, malty beer that is still light on the palate and stomach. I like dos perros because it is my equivalent of a session beer for the winter.
