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.

Mixed the Yin and Yang together. Dark body with low tan head. Aroma has coffee, roasty, dark chocolate, light fruity. Taste has light chocolate sweetness, light fruity roastiness. Made it 50:50 and it has been very well balanced. Long lasting fruity bitterness with astringent end. Body is full, light carbonation. Interesting idea.

I actually bought the Yin and Yang separately and mixed them together. Absolutely delicious combination and mix of flavors with the IPA and Stout. Thick and rich overflowing head, rich dark color, and inviting aroma!

Mixed together. You get something from each brew. The roastiness, the floral and orange peel along with some chocolate. Medium body light carbonation.

Bottle. Very dark brown body, small tanned head. Aroma of roasted malt, grapefruit, dark sugar. Taste of coffee, chocolate, rye and piney hops, with fruity yeast esters. Dry feel despite of a sweet taste, burned malt and fruit in finish. Good roasty and fresh aftertaste.

Reimer96 (1282) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a frothy brown head that leaves lacing up the glass. Aroma is a wonderfully complex mix of roasted malts, caramel, resin, chocolate, coffee and citrus. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, resin, grapefruit, light nuttiness and smooth bitterness into the finish with a smooth warm alcohol. Moderate carbonation blends a complexity of flavors on this beer and blends all the flavors together with genius.

NeuroPliny (159) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
Created by pouring Yin and Yang in equal parts from the bottle into a crystal glass. Colour is dark brown (the same as the Yin) with heavy brown head that persists; good lacing. Aroma is an elixir that blends the roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and caramel of Yin with the heavy hops, grapefruit, pine, and orange of Yang. The flavour is heavy sweetness against heavy bitterness with the bitterness winning. Crisp ascerbic finish. This works, but the heavy hops are a bit over-powering. As in every couple, one tends to over-power the other.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a lasting tan head with lace. Aromas of roastiness, bitter chocolate, light pine and alcohol. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roastiness,light coffee, light citrus and light pine with a smooth bitter lingering chocolate finish. The alcohol was noticeable in the flavor.
