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.

Sask89 (500) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JUN 28, 2014
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.

Desverger (5761) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle - fuzzy dark brown to black coloured pour with a beige/tan head. Aroma and taste is a mix of roasted malts and tropical fruits, prominent hoppy, grapefruit, pine needles, some caramel, cocoa, roasted hoppy finish.

Keg at CBC Leather Lane. Big hoppy and roasty gangbang. Hides its booze exceptionally well. Dark fruity sweetness and bitter hop roast end.,

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

Bottle. 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.

ebone1988 (774) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2016
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!!
