fidelis83 (2351) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours clear garnet dark brown with a 2 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet malt, sugar cane juice, a hint of molasses and grass. Flavor is sweet malt, corn, molasses, sweet grass and light metallic notes. Light to medium body, oily and syrupy, lightly carbonated. Not a fan, unmitigated malt sweetness and off tastes. Doesn’t look half bad though.

JohnRMurdoch (4736) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Tap @ The 1925 Microbrewery & Restaurant, Singapore as San Miguel Negra. Very dark brown, good head. Sour vegetable malt aroma. Sour milky toffee flavour. Smooth and creamy. Not a good beer. I just took it as I haven’t yet rated a Philippines beer.

Luneylane (132) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - FEB 12, 2017
A bottle from Jason’s near NCCU, drunk at home. Aroma: sour, bready, some molasses. Appearance: opaque, oxtail soup, minimal lacing. Palate: rather light-bodied, oily, soft carbonation. Noticably malty at the finish, but nothing spectacular. Taste: malty, quite flavoursome for its ABV. I would happily drink another, though I think I’m going down with a cold.

colui72 (895) - HONG KONG - JAN 6, 2017
Reason why I’ve tried this beer besides coming from San Miguel: I found it at Wellcome (one of the more local and Chinese oriented supermarket). Which confirms my prediction about the Chinese beer market switching to dark beers soon, and now it’s an invasion! And I’m very happy about this! Coming to this beer it’s actually a surprise: nice appearance, dark brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, quite flat. Taste is the surprise: roasted malts, bread, molasses, caramel, ripe fruits. Absolutely decent! The rise of craft beer has helped the improvement of crap beer! Well done!

Picked up a bottle under its Cerverza Negra alias. Dark brown, light bodied, chocolate malts, reminds me of its Mexican Negra ’cousin’.

superspak (5297) - Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2016
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toasted dark bread, brown sugar, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of molasses, toffee, coffee, dark fruit, slight herbal/grass, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toasted dark bread, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of molasses, toffee, coffee, dark fruit, slight herbal/grass, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toasted dark bread, brown sugar, nuttiness, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from hop/roast bitterness as well. Fairly clean on lager flavors; some light fruitiness and minimal off flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a good dark lager style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
