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.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Draft. A black beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, roasted malt, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted bread, malt, hops, and a bit of smoke, leaidng to a very bitter finish. A bit overboard on my tastebuds.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2012
On tap. Pours an opaque deep brown rather than black really with no head whatsoever. The aroma is surprisingly discreet, just a little roasty. Rich body, low carbonation, but flavour-wise the beer really opens up. Dark, juicy pruney fruit, licorice and a little citrus - very little. The finish is rather hot on alcohol with quite a hop build up. The final sum of this blend is actualy better than its parts! 170512

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2012
Bottled (thanks Kimi!). Quite much black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is fruity, mild roasted, quite "strong alcohol without being evident alcohol", liquorice, and wood. Flavour is quite strong floral, fruity and salted liquorice like notes. Mild alcohol and some slight resiny and wooden notes. Big salted liquorice finish. Imperial Black IPA would be the fitting style. Jeppe, I am not sorry for bashing the biscuits, but for hating IPA/DIPA, and especially the paradox of a Black IPA (Cascadian Dark Ale is better, and for this, imperial in front), this beer ... I fucking love this!

On tap at CBC, Copenhagen. Clear dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Light crisp dry palate. Minerally chocolate. A touch of brett but this is mostly dark chocolate and coffee set in a minerally crisp palate. A trace of bubblegum ester,

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration2012. A reddish dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with some resiny and piney notes. Citrus peel and a touch of coffee. The flavor is quite bitter and resiny, with the roasted malts sure present. Full-bodied, sweetish and pleasantly carbonated, but a bit warm on the palate. The finish is bitter and sweet with roasted malts. It’s a nice blend, but I think the beers are better on their own than blended even though my ratings might not reflect that. 120511
