Thanks for the comments. The one thing I might do when I make this again is get rid of the chocolate and user some of the new Munich 30L I got. U love this beer though.

Great recipe! I added a bit more Munich Dark Malt to deepen the color a tad, and used Wyeast 2124 Bohemian Lager (my lhbs didn't have the Mexican Lager strain). Lagered in my 48-54F basement. Absolutely delicious! Clean & crisp, nice bitterness level, not too hoppy, malty but not too. Just an easy drinking beer - actually in my opinion, better than the original Negra Modelo! Will brew this again while my basement's still cold enough!
