COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yin med Yang, eller nyd denne ondsindede Imperial Stout solo.
English Language Label: This is one half of a Black & Tan. Not just any Black & Tan, but one where a toasted smug and hoppy fella get together to make a sublime Taiji balance. Mix the Yin & Yang together (or enjoy this profoundly evil Imperial Stout solo).

Aroma- Licorice, coffee, chocolate, a bit of vanilla. Taste is full of roasted flavours, nice biterness. Finish is a coffee like. There are also some sweet notes (vanilla, pleasant alcohol) Very creamy, soft. I expected something more intensive, i enjoy more intensive versions of Imperial Stouts. Overall quite nice but i had higher expectations.

Cunningham (4678) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014
Complete black color with a fine beige head. Lovely lacing. Looks really nice. Coffee, toffee, roasted and mild fruity aroma. Full body. Nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. Soft carbonation. Creamy lovely texture. Toffee, caramel, vanilla, coffee and roasted flavor. Oh my god for a wonderful evening sipper. Pure pleasure. Well masked alcohol.

Mooie zwarte kleur met een volle bruine kraag. Ruikt chocolade, vanille, iets peated. Mooie volle geur. Smaakt vol, koffie, bitter, chocolade. Goede bittere afdronk. Iets alchol nasmaak.

Bottle from Brewdog Bar, Sheffield. Opaque Black with a surprisingly thin tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee, chocolate and some treacle. Taste is bitter and then sweet. Unusually for the style this has a rather medium-thin body, lightly carbonated.

ben4321 (4038) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Superstar - Huntington, 10/19/14

Aroma: The nose is licorice and coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: It pours a brown-black color with a light brown head and some medium-plus lace
Flavor: The taste leans roasty, with dry coffee, some caramel/chocolate sweetness, and a hint of fruit
Palate: The body is medium-plus, not as full as others in the style, with a soft carb. and a dry finish
Overall Impression: Decided to do a back-to-back of Yin and Yang today. Starting with Yin. This is a pretty tasty stout. There’s an interesting (and light) fruity character that comes out in the flavor that was a little surprising, but otherwise, it is just a well made (roast over sweet) example of the style.
The question: Will I make the Black and Tan? The answer: Yes.

Une bombe anisée qui se fait transporter dans un corps riche, bien assis dans le fond du palais. Des feuilles de tabac enrobent le charbon ardent et un côté salin se combinent à la a résine amère pour une concotion étonnante.

Drucken på Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival. Hade väntat mig mycket mer av Evil Twin här. Känns ganska intetsägande. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 355ml. Opaque black with a brownish hue and a creamy brown head. Deep roasted aroma with hints of mint, dry fruits and alcohol. Robust with moderate carbonation. Dry and astringent. with a stinging alcohol and dark malt bitterness. Not drinkable, but complex and with great character.
