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).

Eructoblaster (3056) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle - 341ml. Pours a perfectly opaque black body with low carbonation and an average beige foamy head. Strong, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, roasted cereals, woody, and plummy hints. Its robust, malty/hoppy taste carries oaky, anise, roasted coffee, and some vineous notes. Ends with a long, strong, warming bitter/roasty finish. Fantastic!

12oz bottle. Pours a deep black with a scant brown head. Aromas of chocolate, liquorish and roasted malt. Taste is semi dry and bitter from the malts. Flavors of coffee, heavily roasted malt and a slight whip of hops. Malty and unforgiving. Very good. Finishes toasty, roasty and malty. Nice.

"Absolutely loved this smooth ass stout. Lots of roast and cocoa and a bit of molasses perhaps. Awesome feel-easy to put down for 10%. Tried as a black n tan too but just the stout was better. I’ll get this again."

Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours a pitch black color with a tiny light brown colored head. The head fades very fast to leave a bit of thick and syrupy lace on the sides of the glass. You can tell just by swirling the beer in the snifter that this is going to be a thick and syrupy brew. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a roasted malt smell with tons of sweeter more sugary aromas mixed within. There is a good showing of brown sugar, caramel, and molasses which is accompanied by some sweet vanilla and milk chocolate tastes. Some dark fruit aromas of fig and prune are there as well enhancing the sweetness even more and are joined by a hint of an almost coffee liquor aroma. A bit of wood and a decent showing of a burnt coffee smell are there as well, overall producing a nice dark, roasty, and sweet smell with just a hint of a warming booze. Taste – The taste begins with a thick roasted malt flavor with a good showing of a sweet brown sugar and caramel taste. A vanilla flavor is present soon after the initial taste which grows in intensity as the taste advances. Along with, and complementing well, the increase in vanilla, comes a milk chocolate flavor. Only a light level of darker fruits come to the tongue, being almost entirely of a prune and cherry taste. A little bit of an espresso also joins the profile more toward the middle of the taste, adding just a hint of bitterness to the brew. Some light herbal and grassy tastes come to the tongue more toward the end as well, but these are quite light in comparison to the sweeter and roasted flavors of the brew only adding a touch more of bitterness. While some booze is present in the nose, there is very little detected on the tongue, and with a surge of milk chocolate coming at the very end of the taste, one is left a smoother roasted and sweet imperial stout flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thicker and creamy with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The thick and syrupy feel is great for the big sweet and dark flavors of the brew and allows all the big flavors to coat the tongue and bath it in all the big flavors. Overall – Being quite big on sweetness and with only a little alcohol taste, this brew is a dangerously and easy drinking 10 % abv stout. A rather tasty brew and one to try.
