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 (3084) - 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!

"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."
