The boys at Alvinne are really focusing on their barrel-aged sour beers, but that doesn’t mean they don’t make more mainstream styles.
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, licorice and a slightly bitter finish. It has a heavy, rich mouthfeel which is very smooth. As the beer warms, a well-balanced sourness develops.
The Mano Negra is a great beer in its own right, but is also used as the base for some barrel-aged alternatives. Look out for the Mano Negra Bourbon Barrel-Aged, or even the Mano Negra Chilli Bourbon Barrel-Aged beers. They are delicious!
