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).

Aroma is interesting - more smoky than most Imperial Stouts. I like it, but it’s just different. The best way I can describe this aroma is opening up the grill when you’re cooking a good steak. In fact, I think I just found a food pairing for this beer. For some reason, it smells like red meat to me, but I like red meat so that’s ok. Black as night with a small tan head. A little more carbonated than most great stouts I have had - that’s what takes the appearance from a 5 to a 4. I’m picky. Taste is smoky, hoppy for an IS, roasty and has a mild cocoa flavor. Better with each sip, but a bit overwhelming at first. Palate is a bit watery for the size of this beer. More like a Black IPA than a stout. Good, but Yang and the Yin & Yang mixture were both better.

A dark brown stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light coffee, caramel, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel and chocolate cake, coffee, loads of alcohol, very nice. On tap at Torst.

Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma has a little chocolate with some bready grain malts and a very slight boozy undertone, quite unique. Taste is rich with a nice bitter kick to it. Full body, strong carbonation, and creamier on the palate. A very nice stout.

MrHangover (3901) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Draft @ Beer Temple. Pours a pitch black beer with a medium beige head on top. Aroma of licorice, coffee, molasses and caramel. Flavor has a lot of licorice, cinnamon, coffee, malts. Quite a bitter aftertaste, very nice, full bodied beer. Very nice.

mathieuc (3257) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a really dark brown with a small beige head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt and a little grapes, pretty simple and just your usual imperial stout. A little caramel on the nose also. Taste is sweet and offers some light caramel and booze along with some dark coffee flavors. Finish is pretty bitter from all the roasted malt. Drinks like a 10% imperial stout, hot but not too much. Body is full, carbonation medium-high and vaguely ruining the experience for me. Mouthfeel is still a bit sticky and imperial, though. Pretty extreme and good but not extraordinary to me.

jmgreenuk (7468) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 25, 2014
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is creamy roasted malt, chocolate, light smoke. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a roasted malt, earthy mineral, chocolate, grass hop bitter palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Super smooth and flavour packed. Very satisfying.

UXO (1459) - CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a true solid black without a hint of colour, with a short mocha head diminishing to a thin skim and no lacing. Nose is deep roast malts, hint of smoke, coffee, very slight booziness. Taste leads out with roast malt and faint chocolate, giving way to booze-soaked dark fruit. Medium to heavy body, slick and smooth, with low persistent carbonation and a lingering boozy finish. Quite nice. A very well-behaved Imperial, not too boozy but enough that there’s no doubt about what you’re drinking. Almost like a rum-soaked dark fruitcake and definitely a great beer for a cold winter night.

Chocolate and roasted malt. Not sweet for an imperial. Almost bordering on a dry stout. Very nice. Cocoa and coffee come through. Doesn't seem strong. Enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
