On draft at O’Briens. Beautiful bright, burnt sienna color when held to light, small beige head. Toasty-sweet malts, floral and hoppy notes with a bit of earth and wood.

Pours clear brown w/ an amber hue and almost no froth. Aroma of coffee bean, cooked fruit, and malted leather. Light nectar w/ residual effers. Flavors are dry w/ coffee bean, charcoal, leather, brown sugar, and fruity malt. Finish has a slight bittering. I enjoyed it. Not so rich and easy to drink. Don’t worry about the water =) KoNrRiI (1714) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 0.33 bottle @ Las Adelitas Clear, brown, small, tanned. Malty aroma. Sweet, malty flavor, very schwarzbier-like. Light, slick, average. Overall very standard. JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Courtesy fordest. Poured a darkish amber color with a thin film of whitish head. Clean aroma with some nuttiness. Mild flavor with nutty tones and a dry finish. Drinkable offering on a pretty bland style. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Found this bottled in an import multi-pack at World Market in St. Charles, Illinois. Clear, dark brown pour with a nice, thick tan head, mild chocolate and nuts in the nose, smoky, chocolatey coffee taste with a caramel, malty finish. Probably the best Mexican beer I’ve ever had.

Negra Modelo like. barleyPops (1183) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2007
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. rather dark pour for the style as it was a very dark amber with s hort lived khaki head. caramelly sweet but not overly so. more of a marzen. definitely better than what I was expecting since its from Tijuana. not bad, not bad at all.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 Bottle, 355ml. Clear mahagony with a small, fluffy light-brown head. Watery roasted aroma, with hints of spices and dry fruits. Rich and smooth, but ultimately lacking in flavour, too watery, shame. Low bitterness, but with a great roasted finish. Maybe this was all there was in 2005, but these guys better start producing to a higher standard, or risk getting run out of the market by better brewers. rcasta (874) - EL SALVADOR - NOV 5, 2013
