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.

Black pour from 12oz bottle at home. Malty creamy aroma. Chocolate and vanlla taste. Bitter and hoppy. Perfect combo of stout and ipa. This is delicious. Pine, cocoa, and even a little spicy.

MarcoDL (2973) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Grey, black color, weird two-colored head. Mild aroma of dark malt and hops. Taste of strong bitter hops, but also of roasted malt. This combination works quite well, I like this more than the seperate beers. This black & tan results in a fine black IPA.

TheBeerGod (5598) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and floral hops with hop resins and chocolate covered oranges. Taste is floral and herbal hops, citrus, pine, roasted malt, chocolate, burnt caramel and tropical fruit notes. Body is medium with a dense, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with big floral hops, hop resins, pine notes, citrus fruit, chocolate, roasted malt and dark bread.

Bottles from Brewdog Bar, Sheffield. Poured the beers 50:50 together. It is opaque black with a foamy eggshell head. Aroma of pine resin and grass, followed by chocolate, caramel and roasted coffee. Taste is roasted malts with bitter aftertaste. Quite prickly carbonation with a good medium body and some oil. I think I prefer the Yang alone.

Ericular (832) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Sampled at Northgate Tasting. This tends more towards the dark end of the Black IPA spectrum. 11% though? Can’t tell.

Location: 50/50 mix of the 12 oz bottles from Superstar - Huntington, 10/19/14

Aroma: The aroma is roasted malt and some juicy hop, but the roast come through more
Appearance: Pours much like Yin, dark brown-black, with a small light brown head and spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is sweeter than Yin, a little fruity, some dry roast, and a clean, hoppy finish
Palate: The body is medium-plus, smooth and creamy, very easy drinking considering the ABV
Overall Impression: I couldn’t resit, the bottles want you to do it, it seemed like most of the rates on here are from mixing, and I’m clearly easily susceptible to (imagined) peer pressure. Plus, I needed something to do, as there are only 3 games on in the 4:00 block today. This makes for a nice mix. Somehow the mix is sweeter than either of the beers. I can’t explain that, but I swear its true. The Double IPA is a little too sweet, but the Imperial Stout is pretty dry, and thus, I like the Black & Tan even more so than the Black or the Tan separately, even though both are very good on their own.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle into a glass. Pours a deep, inky brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is dirt diapers...not infection style....just way muddled to the point of being disgusting. Taste is is roasty, light bitterness, big bitterness...big unbalanced mess overall. Astringent, vegetal...not great...

swoopjones (6986) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2014
