50 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013. Pours black with a huge descending mocha head. Nose is nicely lactic with sweet chocolate milk, sweet bourbon, coffee with milk and very faint chilli. Taste is sweet lactic bacteria & lactic nature, chocolate milk, very creamy coffee with milk, hint black pepper, milk chocolate, chilli is light, slight burn in the very back. Very creamy and milky. Absolutely delicious, not over-the-top and way better than the Bourbon BA version. Best Mano Negra so far for me. Thx! to the RB Crew for sharing. weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
The night I slept at the Alvinne brewery. Madness. Cheers Glen, cheers MesandSim. Poured a dark brown, medium tan head. Aroma is mild chilli, bourbon, woody notes, toffee sweetness. Flavour is smooth and woody, chilli really grows in the finish. Obviously very me, I loved this stuff. Fantastic beer. And I was very very drunk. saxo (18902) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2013

heerlijk pittig biertje, met chocolade en koffietoets. Aanwezig pittige chilismaak. sebletitje (10094) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2013
Bouteille @ 4de Gentse Bierfestival.
Brune foncée, col épais moka, dense et crémeux.
Arôme donne ce côté fermenté avec une pointe lactique, le piment est subtile avec de superbes effluves de bourbon, pour un vanillé moyen.
Palais est malté grillé, léger côté suret-aigre, fruité noir suivi de ce profil chili qui ajoute un léger côté épicé qui est agréable sans pour cela dominer. Cela laisse ample place au bourbon pour se faire noter. Ce dernier donne une dimension boisée et adoucie de par la vanille, ce qui vient balancer l’aspect plus agressif des piments. Le tout reste sec, note de caramel, et une pointe de fin de bouche oscillant sur l’aigre-doux.

Pour from Glenn at the B&B thanks man ! Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Overall good soft not harsh imperial stout, with lovely chocolate notes, every so slight hint of Bourbon Barrel ( would love to know wich brand used ) some touch of smoke and bit vanilla and cask sweetness, very mild chili flavour, i don’t mind to drink a chili beer with a punch of chili but this was nice too, great job !

Medium sized brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer.

Enjoyed at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013.
The 50cl bottle pours with a dark mahogany body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up smooth sweetened dark roasted malts and toffee mixed with thin ribbons of red wine tartness. The taste starts with all kinds of notes like sweet malts, chocolate malts, toffee and a bit of red wine. Toward midway a pleasing chili heat note grows to modest levels into the finish. I didn’t really notice much in the way of barrel notes but I didn’t miss them either. This works pretty well.
