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.

Bottles mixed. The yin quickly overtakes the yang in appearance as expected making it black with a thinner tan head. Aroma is a mix chocolate and roasted malts with grapefruit and floral hops, which is quite nice. Taste is very balanced, not too sweet with a consistent bitterness. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth / creamy on the palate. Impressive blend.

AWISLguy (2589) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2016
12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Black pour with a beige-brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma has caramel and espresso and something herbal. Taste is of sweet caramel, bittersweet chocolate, some bitter coffee flavors, some saltiness. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. The blend is ok. The carbonation is soft. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. Not sure if this is old but there is little hop presence if any. Suspect there are a bunch of dead hops floating around in this one. 13.3

MadRobin (2828) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, but clear around the edges, mahogany with a creamy 1-finger tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, citrus, chocolate and coffee. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, citrus, roasted coffee and caramel with a little spiciness in the finish. Full/medium body and medium carbonation with a rich, silky mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 30, 2016
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Pohárba töltéskor black ipás, később inkább porteres-stoutos jegyeket mutató illat.Enyhén édeskés, pörkölt malátás, fekete csokis ízvilág, komoly komlós fűszerességgel, hosszú lecsengéssel. Testes, közepesen keserű, enyhén szénsavas. Finom, jól összehangolt sör.

SG111 (1295) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Sample at B spot, Auburn Hills. Pours dark, tan head. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, some hoppy citrus, minimal coffee and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, citrus. Drinks more like a really hoppy Stout, but I guess you’d still call it black ipa territory. Medium mouthfeel. Decent. Doesn’t blow my mind.

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Rating #2153 - 1/3 Yin and 2/3 Yang in bottle. 2015.11.05 - Willow Park Beer Bash. Pours a thuggy twin brother waiting in the alley black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the earthy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.

sharkydodson (1196) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - SEP 2, 2016
the aroma is caramel and hoppy with shades of nuts, toast, pine, citrus and spicy herbs... the taste is caramel and spicy with notes of roasted malt, bitter citrus, pine needles, nuts and spicy grasses... bitter and dry aftertaste...

Enteogenisk (157) - Bĺlsta, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2016
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.

vincentvega72 (429) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2016
Zwart bier met fijne crčmekleurige 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.

josanguapo (1151) - SPAIN - AUG 12, 2016
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
