COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First came a toasted smug called Yin followed by a hoppy fella called Yang. Let me introduce you to Auld Yin – a wrinkly more experienced take on youngster Yin. 9 months in the company of an insightful, complex whiskey cask made a pretty interesting spin on this imperial tajii taste adventure. Aye!
2012 vintage - 12.0% abv

SudsMcDuff (5866) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2013
12oz bottle, liking the past evil twins i’ve had .. . pours a deep brown .. medium head, medium lacing .. . light cocoa, tar, and mild black wood .. . good mild mouth .. a good beer, besides the abv, almost a session .. . . If you think a weakness can be turned into a strength, I hate to tell you this, but that’s another weakness.
