I enjoyed this one. The aroma has something strange I cant pick out sort of like cinnamon or some similar spice. On top of that it has a rich aroma of coffee, raisin, milk chocolate. Taste is nice and smooth with medium sweetness and light bitterness.

Rich milky malty aroma. Thick typical danish malt bill with a dry bitter finish. A beer this malty and rich the dry finish is very welcoming. Great jerb evil twin.

Evil Twin Brewing Co wants me to buy their "Yang" along with this "Yin" in order to make the perfect Black and Tan. It’s a nice marketing plan, but not good enough to fool me. Evil is right!

Pours black with a medium dark mocha head...very nice retention and lacing. Aroma has notes of dark fruit and cocoa...hint of roasty coffee. Flavor has a bit of sweet roastiness, significant dark fruit...mildly winey. Mouthfeel is heavy and creamy with a roasty dark fruit finish.

Sampled side by side with the yang, and then blended. I actually preferred the yang to this, and the blend was my favorite. This one was good and rich and lots of dark chocolate, dark fruit, and roastiness. I did enjoy this, but I think I enjoyed the ’concept’ of these beers the most.

Light brown, small head on an almost black beer. Complex, but modest aroma of coffee, chocolate, liquorice, laurel and alcohol. Well balanced sweet and bitter, the latter overruling towards the aftertaste. Liqourice, "salmiak", coffee and alcohol. I really like this one (better than Yang). Courtesy Benzai.
