Alengrin (2722) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Mano Negra matured on whisky barrels, very limited production. Very thick, light beige head, totally black colour, seemingly darker than the regular version (?). Aroma of coffee beans, gravy, chocolate liqueur, Drambuie, hazelnuts, tea, nutmeg, peat; full and oily palate, weakly sweetish, creamy with tea-like spiciness, dominated by coffee-like roasted bitterness, dry finish with single malt-like, warming alcohol. The ageing on Bladnoch barrels sure did this beer good.

Very dark brown beer, opaque. Small tan head. Very light palate for an Impy. Smooth dark malt, soft and a little dry. Some lactose sweetness, a little tangy. Soft whisky - comparatively subtle. Finishes light and soft. Okay but seems a bit light and fluffy for a BA Impy!

shoulderbroken (2377) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Vinnie! Dark brown/black colour with small and creamy golden head. Aroma is full on roasty malt, boozy whisky and kahlua, creamy. Taste is vanilla, unusual booziness, much more prominent than in the smell. Very smooth. For some reason I wrote down creme caramel. Nice!

Plovmand (6678) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle shared by Faroeviking. Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is quite vinous and somewaht bretty with notes of whisky, dark fruit, yeast and some funky shit. The flavour is very dark fruity with notes of alcohol, dark fruit, brown sugar, some acid, some hard roasted malt and has some medical dry notes. Very dry finish. I you like Alvinne. This is op notch.

Gushing bottle! Black color with initially big head, but reducing quickly to a thin layer. Aroma of roasted malt, dust, light sourness, maybe brandy, deserving a 7 or 8. Good flavor, roasted malts and chocolate, quite drier than I remembered, smooth, balanced, with tones of alcohol that come from the whisky barrel. Good, but nothing spectacular.

2010-04-03, tasting at Papsø, 7-3-7-3-13=33
Brown color with red reflex; no head, just a small collar of bubbles. The caramel aroma is a bit dusty. The sweetish caramel flavor has just traces of whisky; being the flavor not impressive, the lack of whisky doesn’t help; the final is weak and dusty, short and a bit astringent. Easy. Uncomplex.
