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.

gyllenbock (7166) - 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 (5612) - 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.

Really smooth mix of IPA and stout. Light creamy head with a full dark body. Rich in flavor, well rounded with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell with caramel and candy. Similar taste, some roasted aromas, dark malts, citrus, grape and pine. Vey nice. Love the hops and dark malts combo.

Piana beżowa, średnio obfita, opadając delikatnie zdobi szkło. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna z rubinowymi przebłyskami. W aromacie królują cytrusy, likier cytrynowy, skórka curacao, odrobina iglaków i lukrecji, nuty palone oraz ciemne słody są bardziej z tyłu. W smaku piwo jest agresywne, od razu atakuje nas ostra alkoholowo-palona goryczka, gorzka czekolada, dojrzałe pomarańcze i żywica. W afterteasie przejrzałe mango i akcenty tytoniowe. Nagazowanie średnie, drobne i szczypiące, tekstura szorstka, goryczka wysoka do średniej, długo pozostająca, alkohol wyczuwalny, mocno rozgrzewający. Trunek okazał się nie lada wyzwaniem, wymagający nawet dla zaawansowanego piwosza. Przede wszystkim ponadprzeciętnie długa goryczka, wysoki alkohol i ziemistość, połączenie zapewne nie dla każdego. Ogólnie jednak całkiem dobre piwo, aromatycznie bliższe DIPA, smakowo American RIS z dodatkiem skórki pomarańczy - tak bym to podsumował.
