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).

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pours black with a bit of purple hue like an eggplant color. Thick, frothy, creamy head of mocha colored foam with good retention and some lacing. Alcohol legs and the head fell off slowly and to a tallish ring around the glass that reminded me of seafoam. Nose is bittersweet with chocolate and bold espresso. Roasted toffee and dark fruit that’s a little ominous. Plum. A hint of cola that doesn’t translate into the drink and a wet smell like damp earth. Taste is smooth. A touch of booze and a creamy milk chocolate with plenty of coffee and burned toast. Some smoke, char a little roasty and some bitter. There’s a mild hint of vanilla and a dry malty finish. Medium body and medium carbonation.

This is an impressive stout that does not lean toward the overly sweet. As milky and creamy as the chocolate is, the drink is strong and clean. The char is not over powering and together with the small bitter makes this a spirited stout that dares to be amenable and vast. Spirited and well turned out.

umich03jm (2326) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle, bottled March 2013. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small frothy head that quickly fades. Aroma is a nice mix of coffee, chocolate, and burnt wood with some spiciness in there. Taste has some spice to it too with all the aromas mixed nicely. There’s some licorice as well and it has a slight whiskey feel to it with all the burnt wood. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Thin to medium body, silky mouthfeel. Very enjoyable imperial stout.

Pours black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and liquorice. Taste is sweet, lots of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and liquorice while roasty and burnt with a long, strong finish. Excellent imperial stout, strong and flavorful

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle. Very coffee and bitter. Very little hoppy aroma. No head. No lacing. If this is ying I want yang. I bet I'd be a good cigar beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Poured into a snifter, used oil black pour with a nice tan brown head that sticks around the edge. Aroma is dark chocolate, nice dark malts. Taste is huge, thick, smooth, cacao, bitter coffee, boozy. I feel like I’m also getting some pine hop characteristics in the late finish too. Great stout.
