omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2010 Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm (as Cuvée Freddy Bourgogne OA, 8%). Cloudy dark brown, minimal airy head. Vinous, buttery Rodenbach-like lactic nose. Tart and vinous with light spritzy mouthfeel and above medium body. Lactic and cherryish, dominated by welloaked red wine. Fresheningly sour, deepand comples with lots of tannine bitterness. Only slight roastiness remains from the Mano Negra. Feels like a deluxe Rodenbach Grand Cru with more concentrated flavours and a delicious addition of dry oaky red wine. Despite the rich flavuors it stays elegant. I really, really enjoyed this one!

madmitch76 (15124) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
5th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Opaque black beer. A little sour coca cola on the nose. Dry palate but not overly so. Very curious taste. Milky coca cola with a nutty tone. Pretty sweet but also sour! Not a bad beer but just a bit odd.

fiulijn (14770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Courtesy of Jan (fonefan); my bottle says 8% ABV
The color is almost black; it has a medium sized thick head, beige. Aroma of roasted nuts and vinegar, chocolate; perfumy, elegant. Correct body structure; the mouthfeel is quite dry; chocolate flavor, followed by ashes and a sharp woody sourness and also some astringency; unfortunately there is some acetone in the end. The Mano Negra seems to be a too aggressive beer to be mixed with red wine.
It actually remonds me the Struise Aardmonik, with more chocolate and less acetone.
The result is good but not exceptional.
