Pours black colour with small beige head. Aroma is hoppy fruits, sweet caramel malts, chocolate and light coffee. Flavour of berries, salmiac, caramel malts, light fruits andsalty licorice. Some harsh bitterness on the palate that wrecks the mix. A bit better than either of the parts but still lacks something vital.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours black-brown with a fine tan head. Quite a bit of dark, ripe fruits in the nose with mild chocolate and pine. Big sweet flavor with a hefty dose of booze and some licorice. yeah, some berries, too, as is often the case with black IPAs. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm to finish with a bit more roast now, light pine and other resinous bitterness. A heavy-handed black IPA, but nice.

Originally rated on 20.6.2011, 2x330ml bottles from Bierkompass, mixed 50/50. Pours black with a nice foamy head. Aroma has hints of roasted malts, espresso and fruits. Unbelievably tasty, starts out with a nice roasted taste and finishes with a taste of sweet and exotic fruits with some roastiness. Complex, extremely well balanced. Finally a Black IPA done right. Wow, definitely one of the best brews I’ve tasted in a while.

Re-rated on 27.6.2012, the official Yin & Yang bottle from Bierkompass
Pours pitch black with a large foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, some fruits, coffee and chocolate. Taste starts out slightly roasty and fruity with notes of bitter hops, very salty licorice and chocolate. Finish is roasty and bitter with some fruitiness and vanilla coffee notes. Hints of some off-flavors. Not as good as the two separate bottles mixed together. Feels like this has a bit too much of the imperial stout pushing through. Still very tasty, though.
