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).

chinchill (2438) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Poured from a brown 12oz bottle, bottled on 3/13/13, into a snifter. Initial temp. about 45F. A - Poured very dark ruby-brown and looks black in the glass. The smallish head soon reduced to a partial coat and thick ring.that left spotty lacing behind. This is a decent looking stout. S- Burnt toast; dark roasted grains and an odd floral element that (after tasting) seems to be from hops and alcohol. Off-putting at first, I mostly adjusted after a few sips. Still, the strange aroma led me to search (in vain) the label for hints of odd ingredients. High ABV is not hidden here. T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma at first, particularly in being ignificantly sweet, but this fades quickly, eventually ending n a mildly bitter aftertaste. Only a little bit of burnt grain and char but plenty of dark roasted grain flavor. There’s a modicum of boozy alcohol but the ABV is partly hidden, and a positive facotr, in tasting. Feel: full and smooth with near medium carbonation. Overall: an interesting and appropriately rich imperial stout. Improved with warming/adaptation.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Black colour no head. Aroma has chocolate, and fruit but no much else. Taste is sweetish. But just ok.

kerenmk (2787) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 27, 2015
Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Very black and opaque. Smoke, ink, garlic peel and a little ash in the nose, deep smoky taste, a little alcoholic and bitter. Sleek, full body, smoky finish. Awesome.

Excellent! Coffee, tinge of sweetness, malt, vanilla, excellent mouth feel (full body, and smooth), would buy again!

Black pour into a snifter glass with about a finger of khaki head. Roasty dark chocolate aroma. Dark chocolate up front followed by coffee, molasses, dark fruit, and a moderately bitter finish.

procraste (49) - FRANCE - JAN 20, 2015
Alors, ce truc; c’est un fondant au chocolat/café avec des morceaux de clémentine corse confite à l’intérieur. Avec un peu de gaz, juste ce qu’il faut. Une belle robe black bien opaque et son fin liseret de mousse qui au départ versé abruptement dans un verre de vin blanc à pied donnait un bon centimètre de mousse onctueuse. En un sens, c’est pas mal sucré mais en fait c’est très équilibré. Une petite pointe d’acidité bien pointue en attaque, qui est très bien venue ! Conclusion: C’est de la bombe à siroter au coin du feu en plein hiver. Il faudra que j’y goûte à nouveau !

rondphoto (2456) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 18, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Opaque black with a 2" brown head wall of lace. Aroma of malt and coffee. Taste is toasted malt with coffee and chocolate, some earthiness, and smoke that all move smoothly through a long balanced alcohol-laced finish. A memorable power brew, but I can only enjoy it in sips.
