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).

A very drinkable but average RIS. Not much too it really, doesn’t have the think texture or luscious flavours I normally like in an RIS.

Poured with a black body with a tan head that faded away quickly. Aroma had a mild roasted malt note to it. It also had a slightly spicy note which at time reminded me of diet coke. Flavor seemed to be dominated by whatever adjunct was put into it. Which tasted like 5 spice powder. Some roasted malts and alcohol was mildly present. Finish was light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a small chocolate colored head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, toffee, and black licorice. Taste is strong and huge with smoke, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a bit of dark fruit in the background. Tiny bit of earthy hops and bitterness cutting through as well. Alcohol is hidden fairly well, although there is a nice alcohol burn in the finish. Very full bodied, thick chewy texture, high carbonation, long and surprisingly bitter finish of cocoa, roasted malts, and alcohol. Definitely a very tasty beer! Wasn’t expecting the big smokiness in the taste, but I’m loving it. Well worth the money.

Bottle from Nathaniel’s. Roasted notes dominate the nose and flavor. A bit of dark chocolate in the back end of the taste. Also a bit of coffee in the nose. Decent, not great. Certainly no alcohol detected. Hmm I currently have both yin + yang in the house. Should I try to mix them, hmm?

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
33 cL bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass side-by-side with Yang, Yin & Yang and our own blend of Yin and Yang. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of roasted malts, smoke, nuts and charcoal. The flavour is balanced between roasted malts and subtle herbal, grassy hops. Hints of espresso and dark chocolate come through in the middle. It closes out with a long, roasty finish. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a dry texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice smokey, roasty stout with a dry texture. Very well done. 2013-06-07

Heavy doses of rich, dark chocolate define this beer. Fairly complex with notes of espresso, vanilla, raisins, licorice and molasses. A very slight sourness that actually compliments the other flavors. Frothy feel, but I could stand a heavier body.

Bottle. Pours black with a full brown head that regrettably leaves only a little lace. Aroma is roasted malts, mocha, a bit of alcohol, burnt sugar. Taste is lightly sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body, creamy texture, average to lively carbonation which softens quickly, lots of dark roasted malts and a brief but bitter finish. Hides the alcohol very well. Very good.
