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).

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
This poured a pitch black color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of dark and milk chocolate, and burnt coffe too. Flavor was inky and silky, very sweet dark chocolate and light roast too. Decent.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2011
330cl bottle from grape & gourmet. pours a slick, oily black with a massive, pillowy, mocha head with great retention and smooth, sticky rings of lace. aroma is damn nice with heavy, bold, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and tobacco backed by a heavy dose of soy, topsoil, and salty sardines with hints of earthy hops and anise. flavor is great, fairly aggressive, with heavy roast, burnt black coffee, and earthy topsoil backed by salty soy, toffee, and light hops with hints of dark fruits and smoked malts. palate is full bodied with light carbonation and a lingering, dry, roasted finish. overall, a damn tasty, bold imperial stout.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - dark black beer with a long lasting dark beige foam; nice lacework; deep aroma of mocha and black chocolate; a fair hop presence; full-bodied and thick; pretty sweet and decently bitter; long chocolatey and coffeish finish with more hoppy tones - somptuous

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and liqourice. Flavor is of the roasted malt, dark fruits, brown sugar, burnt caramel, coffee, dark chocolate and liqourice. The body is medium to full with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Imperial Stout, but its even better blended with the Yang.

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2011
330 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a deep, opaque, darkest brown possible with a huge, rocky, foamy dark tan head that leaves some soapy lacing. Aroma of burnt toast, dark chocolate, licorice, earth, soap, and some coffee beans. Flavor of burnt toast, licorice, black currants, deep roasted malts, dark chocolate, and toasted sugar. Medium-bodied, with a super rich, roasty, bitter mouthfeel. Lingering bitter, roast, and rubber on the finish. Packs a wallop. Sticks with you. Not my favorite kind of imperial stout but not bad. Might be better with a year or two on it. Going to try the black and tan experiment now with its other half. Update: Black and tan: I couldn’t get the two to separate, as they blended perfectly when poured together into a deep, dark, mostly opaque copper-brown with a small tan head. Comes across exactly as expected- as a hoppy, citrusy, earthy, roasty imperial stout.

Bottle shared at Øl og matfestivalen. Black in color, with a light tanned head. Full roasty aroma with coffee, licorice and hops. Taste is rich and complex of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, wood, apricot. Nice dry ending

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2011
6/4/11. Bottle. Opaque black pour with a big brown head that fades to a ring but sticks and laces a ton. Enormous roast on the aroma with a certain floral Danish stout aspect, a touch of chocolate, and a hint of sour and alcohol. Rich, complex flavor of roasted coffee, chocolate, malt, dark fruits, and more. Packs a giant punch missing in the aroma that is delish! Nice!

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Draft at Makke. Very dark brown color, small tan head. Aroma of burnt espresso and alcohol. Taste is chocolate liquer, caramel, coffee, booze. Powerful stuff.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle. An almost black pour but with some red. A late forming darker tan head. A nice roasted aroma that has roasted notes, dark fruit, brown sugar, and molasses. This beer takes no prisoners. It attacks the taste buds with coffee, dark fruit, alcohol, and hops that zing the tongue. This beer has to score well. My only complaint is that it is way over done.
