Mahou Negra – Brewed by Mahou S.A. This beer makes no attempt at imitating light Euro-lagers. It dives into the glass a deep dark brown. Lively carbonation releases a half-inch think head that quickly settles into a thin layer on top of this rich tasting beer. Coffee-like roasted malt along with molasses dominates the aroma and also opens up the flavor of the beer, then produces a creamy and nutty, almost Almond character and some bitterness at the finish.
