COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial India Black Stout. This is a complete RTD Black and Tan. Not just any Black and Tan but the one where we flawlessly mixed a flippant good Imperial IPA with a profoundly evil Imperial Stout and sustained sweet beer balance. 33% Stout and 67% IPA.

The aroma is fruity, coffee and chocolate. The taste is quite similar. A little fruitiness and more coffee. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. I do not really like the mix in this beer. I am not impressed with this beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

HPDalen (189) - DENMARK - JUN 19, 2016
Aroma of coffee, grapefruit, chocolate and blood orange. Pours black with a tan head. Bitter and sweet taste. Grapefruit, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee taste. Wow. Full bodied, average carbonation, bitter and long finish. Amazing beer.

Svesse (7700) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 (Bottle) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Roasted, hoppy nose with black coffee, liquorice, black rye bread, dried fruit, some pine needles and a touch of mint. Roasted, malty taste with notes of black coffee, black rye bread, dark fruit, treacle toffee, hints of tar and a generous piney, slightly minty, bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty and well balanced with a generous hop profile. Hides its alcohol level deceptively well. Very nice.

hohops (731) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Appearance- utterly pitch black, a small beige head which quickly settled into a thin film. Aroma- plenty of fudgy chocolate, coffee, dark malt, caramel, hoppy and fruity undertones, chocolate orange, hints of vanilla sweetness, toffee-covered fruitcake. Taste- lots of bitter chocolate, orange peel, chocolate orange, overdone fruitcake, roasted malts, black coffee, undertones of Christmas cake. Hoppy bitter finish. Becomes more fruity and bitter with warmth. Smooth and full mouthfeel, alcohol very well hidden. Nicely blended, doesn’t seem like 10%.

SvanteL (217) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2016
Svart med litet ljusbrunt skum. Stor rostade toner, främst kaffe, i doften men även lite citrus. I smaken kommer först kaffe och lakrits, sedan kommer lite citrus och tallbarr och därefter en rejäl lakritsbeska. En riktigt välbalanserad black IPA.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
