COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

Deep malt with rounded good that are intense but semi sweet. Melon and malt dominated this beer. Alcohol really hidden. Super beer.

esp0r (1921) - NORWAY - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle from Ølbutikken enjoyed at home
Deep red, finger thick beige head. Nice laces! Aroma of grapefruit, grass and citrus zests. Taste is malty with a touch of sweetness and hints of alcohol. Nice oily palate. Finish has intense fruity bitterness. Very nice beer but lose the match against brother Yin.
I also blended a 1/3 of the bottle with Evil Twin Yin, and i have to say that the blend was the best of the 3 tastings this evening

Rune (7808) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2011
330ml bottle from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. Brought back home and shared at a rating session with Finn. Pours a huge, dense off-white head with fine retention and good lace. Slightly hazy amber in body appearance. Inviting smell of fruity hops and honey sweetness. Rounded and well balanced flavour of semi-sweet malts and hoppy fruits with emphasis on the hoppy part. Lingering dry bitter ending. Full bodied. Distinctive and enjoyable (Tromsø, 13.10.2011).

dmac (3924) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2011
11.2 oz bottle from Blue Dog. Poured a solid orange/dark amber under a full foamy light khaki head that fades but is quickly brought back to life with a wrist flick. Alcohol is very apparent in the aroma along with marmalade, citrus, burnt caramel, toffee and honey. Fuller bodied with not much biosphere which is surprising due to the heavy alcohol in the aroma. Average carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is sweeter than hoppy with notes of honey, caramel, toast, wax and light citrus. Good stuff overall but it seems as if the hops have faded some.

wedgie9 (1843) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Tasted on draft at Local Option some time in mid-2011. Pours hazy orange-amber with a thick, off-white head that leaves rocky lace after a slow recession. The nose is an intense blend of bitter resin hops and burnt caramel malt, along with some burnt brown sugar. The flavor is sweet up front with burnt brown sugar and caramel, moving to the bitter resin hops, and more burnt bitterness. The body is nearly full, with average carbonation, and a long resin and burnt bitter finish.
