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.

HKdIPA (403) - HONG KONG - JAN 8, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Pitch black tan head. Fun to pour together (this review of mixed yin and yang not one bottle). Mostly bitter hops aroma, smokiness gone for the most part. Not in a bad way. So many flavors. First sweet maltiness then big hops then smoky sweetness and bitter finish. Really good. Similar to beer hop breakfast but somehow seems ever so slightly less good.

Overt coffee with slight roast. A little tar and pine. Ack with garnet highlights and full brown head. Hops more prevalent on flavor with floral and moderate high roast. Crisp, dry finish and moderate bitter throughout.

I like the idea of mixing a DIPA with an IS, however, the base beers need to be good. Unfortunately this was not the case, with the two together being rather average.

33 cL bottle courtesy co Chris, served in a stem glass side-by-side with Yin, Yang and our own blend of Yin and Yang. Pours black with a small light tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a slight amount of lace. On the nose, there are elegant notes of chocolate, brown sugar and a hint of espresso, along with herbal and slight piney hops. The flavour is moderately sweet up front with chocolate and roasty malts, developing nutty, caramel notes and a subtle herbal hoppy bitterness. The finish is long and roasty. Overall, a beautifully complex black IPA with nice chocolate notes and hoppy balance. 2013-06-07

Bottled. Poured deep brown with a creamy, sticky, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up burnt black malts paired with a lot of pine resin and citrusy hoppage.. herbal and medicinal overtones.. enjoyed it. The flavor found burnt licorice, black malts, and a touch of molasses at the core with bitter black roast, pine, and citrusy bitterness around.. touches of oxidation showed up toward the back.. bitterness and roast hid most of the boozage on the finish. Medium-plus bodied, roasty, and bitter on the palate.. higher carbonation.. good feel overall. This was a tasty brew.

Det här var gott, vilket en ’black ipa’ i och för sig brukar vara men ändå. Smaken var kraftfull med toner av choklad, kaffe och en dov fruktighet, kroppen var stabil och balansen var närvarande. Slutsats; bra skit!

TBone (13693) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Deep brown color, steady beige head. Licorice and hops in the nose. Full-bodied. Sweetish front, salty, licorice and nice mellow hoppyness. Lingering mix of hops and licorice in the aftertaste. Robust black IPA. Good!

arminjewell (8461) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Somehow, a mix of a 10% IPA and 10% stout makes an 11.1% beer. Go figure. Pour is dark black with creamy off white head, aroma has orange, orange peel, grapefruit, orange jam, hints of dark fruit, chocolate, roast, hints of nice dark chocolate as well. Taste is a mix of orange jam, hints of roast, hints of dark chocolate, nice coffee, green bean, slight oak, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Very creamy. Interesting and pretty tasty.

Bottle @ home. Poursq. Deep black appearance with a thin brown head. Roasty malty chocolate aroma along with some hoppy grapefruity notes. A bit earthy, coffee, dark chocolate, creamy grapefruit, orange citrusy flavor. Kind of a cool beer.
