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.

Bottle.  Pours brown with thick tan head.  Aroma of roasts malt, piney hops, and cocoa.  Taste of citrus hops, chocolate, and notes of coffee.   One of the better Black IPA’s.   Shocked that this is 11% because it drinks way too easy.  Could be trouble.  Pretty good.

NikkTwist (1534) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Opaque black pour with a big tan foamy head. Dark, sweet, bitter but very balanced. Coffee. Asphalt. Burnt black wood. Delicious. Strangly a bit juicy in flavor but in a good way. Missing the severity of the components but still a wonderful blend. I hesitate to say that it may even be better than the components of its parts. Not to be missed!

AirForceHops (2976) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Draft @ When Pigs Fly. August 14, 2012. Great looking pour. Thick full, beige head that lasted the entire glass, sitting on an insanely deep, black liquid. Citrus hop nose with chocolate malt underneath. Dark fruit, licorice, citrus hops again. Bitterness does linger a bit. I like the marriage of chocolate and hops. The only thing that is a bit much for me is the alcohol. Comes off real hot. Body is medium, texture is on the oily side, and carbonation was average.

Darwenus (534) - Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Just looks like a dark stout with a huge head when you pour it, and that’s probably no surprise. But from the first smell the melding of IPA and stout really announces something different, there’s the big citrus/hops thing I associate with IPAs, and also the coffee and anise tones from a good stout. And the taste is outstanding. That citrus thing hits you in the nose at the first sip, and then a chocolatey, malty, coffee flavor, followed by gigantic hops and a little bit of IPA heat. I drank this beer more quickly than I wanted to, simply because I was enjoying it so much.

This is an awesome black and tan beer. Black pour, tan head. Chocolate as roasty nose with some nice chocolate milk flavor and a tasty bite of resin hops at the back end.
