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.

I actually bought the Yin and Yang separately and mixed them together. Absolutely delicious combination and mix of flavors with the IPA and Stout. Thick and rich overflowing head, rich dark color, and inviting aroma!

Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, całkiem trwała, zwarta. Lacing świetny. Barwa czarna z lekkimi ciemnymi rubinowymi prześwitami. Przepiękne bąbelki które można było zaobserwować jak goniły pianę. Aromat coś niesamowitego, połączenie palonych, kawowo czekoladowych nut z niesamowitymi chmielami. Dyzo cytrusów i iglasto sosnowych klimatów. W smaku słodowe, czekoladowo karmelowe, a później do akcji wkraczają chmiele i robi się grejpfrutowo i sosnowo. Wysycenie średnie, pełne, z naprawdę konkretną sosnowo iglastą goryczką.

oh6gdx (22982) - 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!

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2014 Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Clear dark red brown colour with a deep ruby redness shining through, full off-white head. Smells roasty, chocolate, grapefruit, coffee. Amazing smell. If the taste is as great as the smell this will be my new favorite beer. Tastes some iron, hops, grapefruit, pine, roasty, some roastyness. Amazing beer. When blending the yin and yang myself i didn’t achieve this. Full body great carbo. The initial taste of a perfect IPA with the aftertaste of an amazing stout. This is my favorite black IPA. Hell, this is my favorite beer.

adasko (1041) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 23, 2015
It’s perfectly clear, dark copper color, with beautiful head. Very nice aroma of dark malts, but yet it’s so fresh and lite. It’s the same history in the taste. IPA start, CDA finish and huge stout in aftertaste. It’s a bomb of flavours and aromas. Huge and awesome beer.

Reimer96 (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a frothy brown head that leaves lacing up the glass. Aroma is a wonderfully complex mix of roasted malts, caramel, resin, chocolate, coffee and citrus. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, resin, grapefruit, light nuttiness and smooth bitterness into the finish with a smooth warm alcohol. Moderate carbonation blends a complexity of flavors on this beer and blends all the flavors together with genius.

atrox (491) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 13, 2015
Black colour with quite nice head. Aroma in the beginning is typical for imperial stout, so we’ve got roastness, coffee, chocolate, sweetness and lately there is hoppy strike. In taste firstly is sweetness, roastness, dried fruits and finish is also typical for double ipa with some hops.

330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Wow. Have not tried the original two beers yet but this is truly a taste to behold. Big bitter roasted malts hugging a razor-edged hoppy influence. Incredible.
