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.

Syzzer (571) - Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2012
An attempt to make a CDA Cascadian Dark Ale, but it misses its mark. Other name for CDA is Black IPA. This CDA seems somewhat thick and there is a syrupy texture similar to many Scotch ales. The hops mostly present as bitterness- not fresh, piney or floral. The bitter lingers and dominates the finish. The malts -not much personality like lager malts, burnt. Slight woody nose, nice light brown creamy head that slowly dissipates.

Holmen1 (1986) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2012
Flaske fra Ølbutikken: en herlig, trøstet og mørk aroma. Hørt lysebrunt skum som kleber seg til glasset. Fantastisk kompleks men samtidig myk og smigrende smak, og de 11, 1% merkes først i mageen. Mørk (70%) sjokolade, deilig espresso og diskrete humler går opp i en høyere enhet. Størst magefølelse, og ettersmaken vil ingen ende ta. Voj voj!

Botella. Color negro con una muy buena presencia y con espuma de continúa formación. Aroma a frutos rojos, secos, maltas tostadas, café y alcohol. Sabor complejo iniciándose dulce y cafetoso pasandose a notas cítricas y lupuladas , estando presente el alcohol en todo el paso por la boca acabando con final seco y a frutas tropicales

Smooth a bit thick with a sweet, bitter, and warming finish. D - Amazing balance. Really nice complexity. Better than each of the base beers.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a ruby taint and a huge creamy off-white head. A very good-looking beer. Nose is also quite delicious: pine, melon, grass and resin is on the IPA side; on the stout side is mainly licorice, leather and hints of dark chocolate and mocha. Taste is pine, resin and herbal grassy tones mixed effortlessly with the dark chocolate, coffee and licorice tones. Very nice. The only drawback is some rather present alcoholic overtones, which without this beer would have been near-flawless in its composition. But at 11 % this is to be expected. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. A true sipper which is both strangely refreshing and heavy at the same time, just as could be expected from a beer operating on the pinnacle of the Black IPA genre.

jesperhammer (2645) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2012
23-NOV-2012, bottle @home, from Ølbutikken. Dark brown with lasting tan head. very fresh hopped roasted brew. Fine balance between hops roast. Very hoppy. Full body, medium carbonation. Better the times I have blended the two brews myself, and certainly better at the time served @Mikkeller as a blend of the two parts.

Benzai (6388) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2012
33cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red brown color with a deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light. Smell lightly malts, grapefruit, hops, slightly metal, roastyness. Taste malts, roastyness, slightly coffee, hops, very bitter, lightly coffee, lightly grapefruit. Getting closer to the perfect match of imperial stout & IPA, but there is always a tiny bit room for improvement. Great beer though!

Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Clear dark red brown colour with a deep ruby redness shining through, full off-whitem head. Smells roasty, chocolate, grapefruit, coffee. Amazing smell. If the taste is as great as the smell this will be my new favorite beer. Tastes some iron, hops, grapefruit, pine, roasty, some roastyness. Amazing beer. When blending the yin and yang myself i didn’t achieve this. Full body-art great carbo. Thee initialen taste of a perfect IPA with the aftertaste of an amazing stout. This is my favorite black IPA. Hell, this is my favorite beer.
