Alhambra Negra

Leandro the Missing (found here) has requested a beer post, so here goes:

One of my pleasures is to meet for lunch at Jaleo. The chef Jose Andres is a celebrity in the Washington, DC area with several restaurants, a cooking show on PBS, and a recipe book called Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America.

I like the tortilla de patatas, the gambas al ajillo, and the ensalada de remolacha con citricos, topped off with a delicious Alhambra Negra and a cup of coffee.

This full-bodied lager is brewed in Spain with an alcohol content of 6.4% and is described as having an educated Mediterranean taste, a touch of caramel, and a trace of licorice. My current fav.

I have never tried this one.. I have booked marked this on my iphone and the next time i'm out at Lost Dog Cafe, I'll see if they have this.

Have, you tried Maudite? It's one of my favorite bottle fermented beers.
