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.

Leini (1651) - SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
355ml bottle. Pitch black body with a medium/low head. Aroma of wood, roasted malt, some citrus and gooseberries. Flavor has more IPA prescence in the beginning but finishes more stout like. Boozy.

Vignale (2990) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2015
Flaska från SB. En modern klassiker men första gången för mig. Massor av humle, tallskott, resin och grape i täten. En del rostade aromer men malten ihop med humlen skapar en doft och smakbild med en massa saltlakrits, vilket jag som tur är gillar men det blir ändå lite enkelspårigt...men gott.

Wunderbares Black IPA mit den gewohnten Strukturen und einer ebenso wundervoll balancierten Mitte aus Hopfen und Kaffee. Dabei recht würzig, etwas Zitrone, dazu leichte Süße selbst zum Ende hin. Gute Sache.

McTapps (6326) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of hops, woods, pine and citrus fruits. Taste of hops, pine, woods, citrus fruits, chocolate and coffee. Hoppy-piney finish. Very quaffable and tasty, enjoyed it.

Turtles (1475) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2015
355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a creamy beige, long lasting head, rich lacing. Roasted aroma, licorice and milk chocolate mixed with tropical fruit, banana, lychee and mango. Medium carbonated, creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Exciting taste fruity with guava and mango, simultaneously creamy and roasted notes, fudge, maple syrup, licorice and vanilla. Long warm finish, nice one!

Butelka bez daty. Ciemne z rubinem fajna piana. W zapachu troche ciemnych slodow troche rodzynek troszke zywicznych i kwiatowych chmieli. W smaku juz bardziej jak likierowate cda. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi alkohol. Piwo jest spoko w kategorii imperialne cda, podejrzewam ze jakbym mial swieze to dawalo by mocniej chmielem.

gyllenbock (6899) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a large tan head. Aroma of hops, caramel and some licorice. Similar taste, also with light roasted malt. The mouthfeel was kind of creamy. A descent one.

nuplastikk (5570) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2015
12oz bottle. I have had Yin, I have had Yang...but guess I never rate this one. Solid hop character, I can see why it is categorized as a Black IPA. Rich and luscious chocolate tones, roasty bakers chocolate. A real monster of a Black IPA or hoppy Imperial Stout, but remains drinkable and enjoyable. Solid beer, a little dry and simplistic in the body at times though.

Taste is up in your face at first, a stingy almost peppery roasted bitter blackness that actually had me react for a second. A few sips in and when the beer warmed up a bit, you sense the IPA part better, with a lingering fruityness trying to break through. It never really breaks through, but it gives the beer a sort of fresh and almost creamy aftertaste. I like my beers rough and brutal, so this beer was right up my alley. I must try to get ahold of the Yin and try that one as a stand alone. Really liked this one.
