3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Van de tap @beertemple. Mooi zwart bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aromas van gebrande mout en hop. Smaak is vooral gebrande mout en drop/salmiak. Voor mij een prachtige combi. Heerlijk bier

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Spruce, pine, cigar smoke, lactose, dusty.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, beige head.
T- Pine, bitter, cream, dry cocoa.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- Started with Yang then had this and next Iíll have Yin. Maybe not the most logical order for the 3...or is it? Considering this is about 66% Yang and 33% Yin, the balance is still pretty even. It certainly is more IPA than stout but doesnít scream one or the other. Hard to detect and obvious standout flavors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, booze, light pine, light IPA qualities. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head. Taste is sweet, roasted malt, some bitter hops, maybe lactose, coffee, a lot more stout than IPA. Mouthfeel is medium body with light carbonation, a bit of hops in the aftertaste. Overall, as a Black IPA, this is disappointing. Iíd say itís more reminiscent of a hoppy porter. Still drinkable.

Guiness meet my little friend the the double IPA.
This is a muddy alcoholic hop fest.
Very well balanced bitterness, like a guiness, with the same coffee notes, but super malty and alcoholic. Really like it!!
