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.

I am not a big fan of black ipas. Neither here nor there. Roastiness nor hops nor bitterness come across. Both apart are better. But conceptually great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle fron Vika. Pours black. Some fizzy head. Lots of carbonation. Alcohol, metallic and water nose(!). Luckily, aroma is way better. Roasted malt, coffee, raisins and some hops. Quite bitter. Sweet. Good body. A very good beer.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Deep ruby, fluffy head. Lovely complex sweetness, layer upon layer of flavour. Smoke, burned sugar, subtle bitterness. For dark evenings showing there is hope after all.

12 oz. from Bottleworks. Opposing yet complimentary forces. This beer is a ridiculous interpretation of the black IPA style. Crazy hop bitterness mixes with a seriously roasted stout to produce an incredibly heavy brew. So much alcohol it feels like the heat is burning off my tastebuds. No wonder it’s only in a 12 oz. My first Evil Twin beer an hopefully not my last.

yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration2012. A reddish dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with some resiny and piney notes. Citrus peel and a touch of coffee. The flavor is quite bitter and resiny, with the roasted malts sure present. Full-bodied, sweetish and pleasantly carbonated, but a bit warm on the palate. The finish is bitter and sweet with roasted malts. It’s a nice blend, but I think the beers are better on their own than blended even though my ratings might not reflect that. 120511

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and a light tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and piney and citrusy hops. Flavour is roasted malt, piney and citrusy hops – and a slightly bitter finish.

BeerSkull (1234) - SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2012
(Bottle). Delightfully floral hop aroma with hints of sweet tropical fruits and rosted malt. Sweet taste with clearly fruity notes, roasted malt, hops and some salt licorice. Distinct bitterness in the aftertaste where unfortunately bitter taste from the alcohol emerges too much in the taste.

Bottle. Pours black with light tan head. Nose/taste of heavily roasted chocolate malt, sweet chocolate, vanilla, resin and roast coffee. Finishes a bit bitter cocoa/dry resin. Lots of warming alcohol. Medium body.
