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.

Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Hoppy-dry aroma. Starts dry-malty, flowery-hoppy. Finish a bit alcoholic. Mild-hoppy aftertaste. Not bad.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark reddish brown color. Very roasty aroma with salty licorice, charred bread, orange and perfumed alcohol. Roasty and bitter flavor with boozy alchol, charcoal, salty licorice. Nice complex aroma, but flavor is too boozy.

Pours black with tan head. Mellow toffee mocha nose, but hops are still prevelant in taste and finish. Better than I thought. Pretty good.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a dark dark chocolate shake brown. Nose is roasted malt, and coffee and chocolate. First sip, I’m blown away. As it warms I still like it plenty but maybe not blown away. Rich ,dark, intense flavors. Hugely bitter finish with a decent hint of burn from the abv. Pretty damn good

Pours a dark brown with good head and lacing. Roasted malt and sweet brown sugar. Taste is sweet to begin with burnt brown sugar and some bitterness mid palate. Alcohol is apparent with coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Mouthfeel is sticky and full bodied with medium carbonation. Much better integration of an IPA and a stout than I expected. Melded well and both still can taste both styles.

A dark brown pour, with a little bit of off white head. An earthy smell with a dirty hop, a little chocolate in there. A hot taste initially with some weird hop bitterness at the end with a little floral. Some coffee ground and chocolate at the end as well. The more you drink it the more the taste bounces back and forth between the stout and IPA characteristics. I also get a tea like quality. Unique and the flavors compliment each other more than I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
In short: A sweet and very bitter strong dark ale. Very harsh and aggressive. Just ok.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed one month after purchase, however fresh a Danish beer is a Vermont store.
The look: Clear dark ruby body topped by a medium tan head.
In long: Nose is strangely fruity (breakfast dark grapejuice, baked berries), hops resin. Taste is generously malted, quite toasted, crusty bread, a surprising strong rye-like flavor (although no mention this beer is a rye-based), caramel, baked berries and other baked fruits, pine-tree, sharp bitter grapefruits, lots of hop resin. Very sharp bitterness of high intensity. For an 11% beer I must say it doesn’t feel too sweet nor is the alcohol too bothersome. Not a bad beer at all, but a bit too brutal for its own good. Yin & Yang is a philosophical concept and its invention is rightfully attributed to the chinese people, unlike Tai Chi which was in fact invented by a stoned dude who was slooowwwwly chasing mosquitos away.

Pours a translucent blackish brown from the bottle with thin ring of tab lacy head that spots lightly. Aroma is nice grapefruit hops up front then a nice roasted make back end, overlying booze. Taste follows, less booziness and more malty notes. Solid beer. Mix is solid, I think the parts may be better solo.
