4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Combine two beers of about equal awesomeness and you somehow get something that’s even more awesome than either is by itself. That convoluted sentence is courtesy of my blown mind. It’s amazing how the combined flavors compliment each other. Somehow Yang brings out more of Yin’s chocolate and tobacco elements. Yin, on the other hand, enhances the dank cannabis notes in Yang. In a way, it’s wrong to focus on the individual beers in this blend since this beer has such lovely harmony but I can’t help it after having each on their own. My head hurts. I’ll just stop.

Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, and some chocolate with a citrus/ fruity hop presence. The flavor is about the same with the interplay between the roasted stout and IIPA flavors tussling about, its interesting and pretty decent, not something i would drink often though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a finger and a half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma has a strong citrus front with a roasted malt/chocolate background. Really nice.
The taste is lemon bitterness to start, then chocolate sweet mixed with coffee bitter, finishes with a slight citrus bitterness.
The texture is crisp.
It has a great flavor profile.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Black appearance with a lacy, lingering tan head. Big roasted malt aroma with bitter chocolate, coffee, earthy hops, toasted grain, light pine and light grass. Similar flavor, fairly bitter and dry with hints of citrus zest and light herbal hops. Medium to full body. I like Yin (3.9) and Yang is OK (3.4) so this falls pretty much in the middle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Took is as Yin&Yang bottle. Beer in the glass pours a very dark brown color with medium tan head. Aroma is really Black IPAish, hop forward, with tropical fruits and citrus and a coffee and chocolate base. Taste follows the aroma, again, grapefruit, pineapple and sweet citrus, with a very complementing Stout character, with coffee, chocolate and some molasses. Bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable to be a 10% ABV beer. Really nice.

33 cl systembolaget. En ok öl med lite av varje. Själv föredrar jag nog en Stout eller en ipa.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 Kolsvart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mest som en tunn stout. Lite humle med rejäll beska. Rolig öl och ganska bra!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. 139:15. From saveur-biere.com.
Dark reddish brown color with a mid-size grayish light brown head.
Roasted malt, vanilla, dark hops, mild bitterness and fruity sweetness in the aroma. Balanced.
The flavor is roasted malt, dryness, hops, moderate bitterness, licorice and fruit marmalade. Nice. Nice indeed. Mariage parfait.
