What the brewers say

“To achieve its unique taste, Negra Modelo uses a greater quantity of malt, the finest hops, a special yeast, and the purest water. It is a delicious, creamy, full-flavored dark brew with a pleasant malt aroma and dry hop flavor that has a smooth mellow taste.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Brown malt, bread, muffins, and toffee with some minerals. Hops are floral and pleasant. Barely a nose at all. Faint smoke. Not enough carbonation to deliver much aroma. Some toffee sweetness as it warms. Notes of sherry.”

Flavor: “Sweet, rich, almost malted milk candy followed by medium, barely sufficient hop bitterness. Toast and biscuits with some roasty character. Slight autolysis meatiness: bologna, perhaps? Light hops and low bitterness.”

Overall: “Clean, malt-centric, and smooth. This beer is a bit oxidized, with some paper and cardboard flavors in the mid-palate. Good malt complexity but papery. Perhaps this sample was poorly handled. Good hops profile, and the balance is in range.”
