Mano Negra is a Belgian Stout (10%ABV), a dark beer with hints of coffee without the astringent flavours that often come with the use of roasted barley. This version then matures for 15 months in Port barrels.
This beer pours a deep black colour, with notes of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate.
The flavour follows the aroma, with the addition of dark fruit sweetness, a hint of vanilla, liquorice and a slightly bitter finish. It has a heavy, rich mouthfeel which is very smooth. As the beer warms, a well-balanced sourness develops.
