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!

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2014
(Bottle. 12.0%) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with strong black coffee, cacao, oak wood, whisky, brown sugar, a touch of treacle and hints of tar and peat. Malty, roasted taste with notes of black coffee, chocolate truffles, liquorice, soy sauce, treacle and a warming finish with whiskey, toffee, a touch of alcohol and a generous coffee bitterness. Full body, soft and rounded mouthfeel. A certain sweetness coming through. Tasty and quite powerful, but still very well balanced. Excellent stuff!

Beautiful stuff! Perfectly balanced taste, intense but very pleasant sweet chocolate, caramel and whisky aroma. Very mellow alcohol overtone. Beautiful stuff indeed.

Black pour-draft at wob. Whiskey aftertaste not initially noted. Good imperial stout but not equal to mephistophiles in my book.
