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).

Nice dark rich color. Has a fairly potent alcohol nose mixed with chocolate and malt. After 4th sip I’m starting to find some hoppiness.. it seems contradictory. I’d rather it remain how it did my first sip.

Bottle @ beer revolution in oakland. Dark brown imperial stout-like pour, whispy tan head. Chocolatey malt nose with a touch of brown sugar and alcohol. Crisp, hop forward imperial stout flavors, bitter accented firm roasted character and a very slight hint of licorice. Full, hardy body as a result of aggressive hopping and alcohol. Decent, well rounded for this take on the style but personally too aggressive in its hoppiness and somewhat too abrasive with the roast/hop combination to be all that overly enjoyuable for me.

Big black body with beady brown head. Very straight forward Impy. Some chocolate and coffee with a roasty bitter finish. Workman like but enjoyable. Not particularly complex.

11.2oz bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium mocha head. Aroma of plums, prunes, slight malt roast, chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. Dark fruit, caramel, and alcohol are the dominant flavors backed by caramel, roast, and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Sticky sweet, lingering aftertaste. More roasted flavors as it warms. Happy International Stout Day.
