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. 33% Stout and 67% IPA.

0,33l bottle at home. no BB date found. black color, small dark-coffee colored head. smells malty roast, earthy, licorice, some wood, creamy, very light grass notes. nice smell, not much black ipa though. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of cocoa, licorice, some roast, spices, earthy notes, very light citric, coffee, bitter chocolate. finishes dry, roasted and ligthly bitter with earthy notes and some licorice. good stuff, light notes from oxidation (but not in a bad way), not much hops on this one. overall very good. oxidation gets more apparent (and a bit more annyoing) once warmed up (-0.1)

Koelschtrinker (16806) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 22, 2016
Der malzige Beginn ist von frischen Hopfenaromen durchzogen. Etwas herb, angedeutet alkoholisch, dann aber doch harmonisch mit verspielter Süße und Noten von Kaffe und Vanille mit grasigem Hintergrund. Weich, vollmundig, wahrscheinlich erheblich besser ausbalanciert, stünde es nicht seit 2 Jahren in meinem Keller. Gut! 10/11/8/11/10/11

Vladivostok (433) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2016
On tap at The Singer pub in London. It was my daughter’s round and I asked her for something dark. This is what she got me; didn’t realise it would be 10% though... In fairness, although it was clearly high in alcohol it really didn’t taste anything like 10%. Dark and likable enough, I did however fail to notice a huge aroma or much in the way of distinctive flavours. Don’t get me wrong, I mean it’s a good beer but does it really merit 99/100?!

Shanshirohop (86) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2016
Toda una experiencia en un porcentaje 80/20 blend, tanto visualmente como en aroma y gusto. Eso sí, sólo aconsejable para cerveceros experimentados capares de digerir cervezas muy alcohólicas.
