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.

After tasting Yang, which was one of the best beers I’ve had, I had big expectations for this one. And it didn’t disappoint. Pours a black oily liquid with a medium offwhite head that quickly disappears. Sweet aroma of chokolate malts and some hoppy notes aswell, kind of reminds me of a barleywine. Tastewise it also has the attributes of a barleywine. Loving it.

Bottle into wine glass. Sometimes I manage to really enjoy these BIPA’s. This time wasn’t really one of them. Nice viscosity but just too much hops bitterness and hops to balance the dark side of it. Imo.

Zwart bier met fijne crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Zoet caramelachtig aroma. Mooi zacht van smaak (drop, mout, bitter). Lange bittere afdronk. De Yang heeft in deze duidelijk de bovenhand boven de Yin maar het is toch een heel lekker bier geworden.

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 1x08. DIPA in nose, soft IS in mouth at beginning and end of sip, hoppy in the middle. Much more drinkable than their separate parts, alcohol unnoticeable

Draft. Pours a medium thick, light beige, rapidly collapsing head, with minimal lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body......nose is roasted malts with chocolate, coffee notes, mild herbal hops, malts dominant......taste is roasted malts with chocolate, coffee notes, mild hints of dried fruits, hints of molasses, burnt sugar, light spice tones, finishing with lingering mild hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, creamy, moderate alcohol warmth, high carbonation. This is an interesting beer with minimal Imperial Stout characteristics, except for the dark malts, with no dried fruits, and the hops are relatively hidden throughout. It misses the Black IPA style, as it is muddled and not particularly clean. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Dark brown color. Roasted malt aromas with hops being more noticeable the longer you sniff it. Floral and hay. Taste has toasted malt, some licorice and hops. The beer is supposedly a mix of an Imperial Stout and an IPA, but the result is so close to a Black IPA that I would never have guessed it.

Cool_Bond (2293) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2016
The aroma is fruity, coffee and chocolate. The taste is quite similar. A little fruitiness and more coffee. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. I do not really like the mix in this beer. I am not impressed with this beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Aroma of coffee, grapefruit, chocolate and blood orange. Pours black with a tan head. Bitter and sweet taste. Grapefruit, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee taste. Wow. Full bodied, average carbonation, bitter and long finish. Amazing beer.

Svesse (7764) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 (Bottle) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Roasted, hoppy nose with black coffee, liquorice, black rye bread, dried fruit, some pine needles and a touch of mint. Roasted, malty taste with notes of black coffee, black rye bread, dark fruit, treacle toffee, hints of tar and a generous piney, slightly minty, bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty and well balanced with a generous hop profile. Hides its alcohol level deceptively well. Very nice.
