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).

Bottle (brewed at Two Roads, not BrewDog). Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (almost opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (roasted grain/nuts, dark chocolate / fudge, coffee), lightly hoppy (apricot, grapefruit), with notes of vanilla, blackberry/cassis. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, oily/watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A very solid if somewhat plain rendition...rather straightforward aromatically (but pleasant...nice berry notes), and overall it plays things pretty safe, but that’s preferable to extremity. The ABV is certainly high, but it’s well hidden. Very sweet, as you might expect, but the finish is surprisingly balanced (the sugars slip away instead of goop-ify in your mouth) so it’s very drinkable. I don’t really crave these diabetes-in-a-bottle sorts of sugar-and-alcohol beers anymore, but for what it is it’s done well (and thankfully sold in small bottles).

Deep brown-black body, medium to thin khaki head, spotty lacing. Rich roast and coffee, light bittersweet chocolate, hookah tobacco in the finish. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, clean finish, well-masked ABV.

I was looking for another stout and Lucas of Glenville beverage recommended this. What a great surprise. Has a bold taste and really should be imbibed just below room temp. At 10% alc it is a great aperitif, and is perfect with a nice cigar. I firmly recommend it! ---rated by Mowatson49

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate malt, earthy hop and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet roasted black sweet coffee and dark chocolate flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation.

12 oz bottle from Wilburs. Black appearance with a nice brown head. The aroma is roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee and licorice. Similar flavor with a smooth and creamy feel. The alcohol is hidden well. Medium to full body with a roasty bitter finish.

This beer pours with a nice head which sticks around the aroma isnt anything amazing but does seem to have a hint of alcohol. The taste is dark and somewhat smokey.
