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.

tricksta_p (2920) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, citrus, grapefruit, hops, chocolate, coffee, ’salmiak’, pine resin. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a medium bitter finish. Body is above medium. Very smooth and easily drinkable, excellent blend of fruity IPA and roasty chocolate Stout. Delicous beer!

Bottle. Pours a grey generous head. Body is oily and pitch black. Nose is roasted malts , coffee. Taste is roasted malts and a little bit hoppy. Stout wins the IPA in flavor. Damn good beer.

Franckg (874) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
Robe noire laissant diffuser de minces reflets acajou. Léger col de mousse couleur crème à la texture laiteuse et poreuse. Arômes de houblons nobles, malt caramelisé et légèrement rôti, beurre, pain grillé. Notes de résine et gazon. La ipa est mise de l’avant. En bouche, beaucoup de houblons qui sont ensuite atténuées par des saveurs de rôtis. Orange, pamplemousse, gazon, un peu de résine de pin suivie par une transition vers un côté de pain grillé, chocolat noir et de malt rôti. Le tout dans une amertume de zestes d’agrumes et cacao qui nous suit longuement. Texture légère à moyenne, corps moyennement rond. Haut taux d’alcool imperceptible. Un bon hybride mais qui ne se démarque pas.

Guruhso (215) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2015
Home-Mix bottles. Lots of aroma of malt and hops. Roasty, coffee, melasses, chocolate - over-riped fruits, pine, grapefruit, bitter orange. The flavours starts very sweet and finish very bitter and dry. Lingering bitterness with notes of coffee. The body is full and the texture is creamy. Soft carbonation. The mix is better, more balanced and enjoyable than the two beers solo. Amazing.

pityu (483) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle - Black colour, medium, dense tan head, excellent retention and lacing. Intense roasted coffee aromas with a lot of dark chocolate, citrussy anx resinous hops. Taste of coffee, caramel, chocolate, cocoa powder, lemon zest, pine, grapefruit. Mediun body, average carbonation, silky texture, lingering roasted and hoppy aromas. Really nice marriage of a stout and an IPA.

willisread (1896) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown with reddish tints around the edge and a finger of beige foam that lingers throughout. Citrusy nose with weed, coffee and caramel and cacao nibs. Medium body with average carbonation. Lots of pith and citrus zest on the front but finishes with dark cacao and coffee with a toasted caramel finish. Slighly sticky mouthfeel. Really good.

colui72 (554) - HONG KONG - DEC 20, 2015
This is a beer blend, it’s 67% of Yang (Imperial IPA) and 33% of Yin (Imperial Stout). It pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, resin and hops. Taste has coffee, fruit, caramel, dark malts. Smooth and medium bitter, quite hoppy in the palate. Perfect transgender ale.

Chudwick (2694) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 19, 2015
12oz bottle - been meaning to try this one for a long time. When I smell this, I get coffee, resin and grapefruit. From the sip I get more of the same. ABV is well hidden at first. complex bitterness. long bitter finish. Ethers in the finish which overpower a semblance of booziness. also coffee roast flavors in the finish. Complex but not as sweet as I would expect.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma and taste are like a black IPA. Was hoping for more imperial stoutness to come out.

Combine two beers of about equal awesomeness and you somehow get something that’s even more awesome than either is by itself. That convoluted sentence is courtesy of my blown mind. It’s amazing how the combined flavors compliment each other. Somehow Yang brings out more of Yin’s chocolate and tobacco elements. Yin, on the other hand, enhances the dank cannabis notes in Yang. In a way, it’s wrong to focus on the individual beers in this blend since this beer has such lovely harmony but I can’t help it after having each on their own. My head hurts. I’ll just stop.
