23/01 0.375 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, great thanks for sharing! It poured pitch black, barely transparent body with medium sized brown head. Fine sourish coffee and licorice aroma with light whisky oak notes. Flavor was weaker than expected, but nice coffee and other roasted malt, woody, very slightly alcoholic. Medium body with medium finish, coffee dominating here, very slightly warming. Didn’t impress me so much, rather simple and thin for an imperial stout. Of course, not bad.
Bottle - Some tart dark malts and barrel notes. Deep dirty brown notes that gushed. Woody notes, soured malts and a weak finish. Maybe past its prime, just nothing special. Alengrin (6087) - 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. Borup (16320) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 5, 2013

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!
Botella. Black colour, light brown head. Sweet aroma, tart like, roasty like malt, dark fruit, spice, wood alcohol. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with roasted malt, tart, dark fruits, bit spice, wood, alcohol.

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! KingCecil (2093) - DENMARK - FEB 8, 2012
