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).

dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours thin but dark and almost opaque. The aroma is tinged with smoke and boiled root vegetables along with a vanilla sweetness. Weird as all hell. On the palate it's much more "normal" with a sweetness well balanced by a roasty astringency. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours an entirely opaque, very dark brown. This is as dark brown as it gets before becoming black. A gorgeous, foamy mocha colored head forms and lingers. Mild aromas of coffee with emerging light notes of both cherry and chocolate. It has a viscous, nearly chewy mouthfeel with some carbonation scrubbing mid to late. Flavors of toffee and dark chocolate balanced with some grassy hop that emerges in the middle. It finishes strong with coffee. No alcohol warmth. Weird for a 10 ABV. This is a nicely balanced stout and is quite drinkable. A very well crafted brew.

kgrew99 (7) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2013 does not count
Bottle. Completely opaque with a thick brown head that retains well. Toasty toffee and caramel in the nose. Not sure when this was released or bottled but it's a slight bit boozy, while also drinking incredibly smoothly for its strength. Roast continues after drinking, with some bitter coffee. Mouthfeel is exquisite. Inky, silky, and a bit chalky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAR 29, 2013
Pours black with a beige thin foam head that lasts. Soya, cereals, moka, toffee and chocolate. Rich porter/RIS aromatic profile. Medium carbonation, fermented soya/mushroom notes with roasted malt and bready tones. Body made of chocolate and dark spirits. Finish on a bitter roasted note like great souts. Enjoy this original tasty RIS! Cheers !

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with frothy, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice, molasses and a touch of pine needles. Malty, roasted taste with notes of sweet espresso, liquorice, dark chocolate, a touch of tar and a generous piney bitterness in a fairly sweet finish with a slight alcohol glow. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Excellent beer.

patricks110 (1759) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours purely black with a viscous mollasses body and almost no head. The nose is super roasted and rich syrupy dark malts and sweetness. Heavy and rich but really sweet and nearly syrupy. Overall a delicious brew.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
330ml bottle shared by czar.
Appearance : Pitch black with a small head.
Aroma : Big rich roasted malts with light piny hops. Slightly resinous. Light tar and ashes.
Taste : Roasted malt and coffee. Piny and resinous hops. Fairly warming finish with sharp bitterness.
Overall : Really nice beer. Great richness of the malts with nice ashy/tar notes that remind me of some of the Brewdog Paradox or some MIkkeller Black. Not too intense on the ashes which keeps the beer balanced but complex. Light alcohol that helps make the heavy malt a bit lighter. A very elegant and well made imperial stout.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Smooth, sweet and roasty. Round and chocolately at times and dry and bitter at others. Complex and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
