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.

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.

Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation. Starts but good, but the IPA tones are to far pushed back and the stout part is only ok.

Decent brew, like most of this brewery. I’m a fan of "Black IPA" mostly, and this one is a decent beer in that style for sure.

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.

Getting a lot more stout than IPA in the taste. To be honest I get a lot more quad’ than stout in the aromas (boiled sweets). Can’t find a label that fits for this beer but it’s interesting. Palate is very velvety and laaaaaasting bitterness !
