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.

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Small bit airy but pretty vast light brown head on top of a deep dark brown to black colored beer. Aroma of hops, citrus, liquorice, some sweets, hints of meat and coal. Flavours of liquorice, hops, good bitter, hints of coffee, citrus, pine and roasted malts. Bitter liquorice hoppy aftertaste. Low carbo, soft silky mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Decent BIPA, but I have had better BIPA’s!

Tmoney99 (11099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, earthy and alcohol aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a dark solid beer.

11.2oz bottle from Party Town, brewed in Scotland. Labeled "Yin & Yang: Imperial Taiji Black & Tan"; marked 11.1% ABV. Very dark brown, near black color. Thin khaki head, leaves nice sprays of lace. Huh.. Aroma retains a lot of stout - like qualities, and not in a good way. Does not drink like a Black IPA. Drinks like an adulterated imperial stout that hasn’t aged well. A lot of licorice, herbal flavors. Stonger bitter taste, kind of astringent, lightly medicinal.. Stronger boozy sweet taste in the finish, with a bit of a bite. Some spicy, herbal hop. Bitter dark chocolate. Bigger body, chewy like a stout. Lighter carbonation, sort of a silky, velvety texture, that’s nice. A decent but boozey sweet hoppy imperial stout. Not what I’d call a Black IPA, though.

dnstone (2165) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Aroma is where sweet chocolate maltiness meets piney hops. Deep brown in color with a bit of soft sudsy white head. Really well balanced flavor, starting stout-like with those chocolate notes and finishing with a lingering hoppy pine character. Quite soft on the tongue. Fantastic.

kappldav123 (5170) - GERMANY - JUN 29, 2013
Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Hoppy-dry aroma. Starts dry-malty, flowery-hoppy. Finish a bit alcoholic. Mild-hoppy aftertaste. Not bad.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark reddish brown color. Very roasty aroma with salty licorice, charred bread, orange and perfumed alcohol. Roasty and bitter flavor with boozy alchol, charcoal, salty licorice. Nice complex aroma, but flavor is too boozy.
