COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ řl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblćst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelćnet, humlet fyr mřdes, og perfekt řl-balance opstĺr. 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).

Darwenus (647) - Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours deep black with no real head. The aroma is dry and subdued. I picked up on some alcohol and anise, but it’s all very understated. The taste is stronger. It’s bitter and somewhat rich, with a little hoppy tingle. The 10% ABV is present with a blast on the exhale. I have come to enjoy strong and sweet stouts, like Narwhal and Founder’s Breakfast Stout. This isn’t like that, but I did enjoy it.

fantti (791) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana ja ruskealla vaahdolla. Haju on palaneen paahteinen, suklainen, lakritsinen, hieman salmiakkinen ja kahviakin löytyy. Maku on palaneen kahvinen, hieman tuhkainen, kitkerä, taustalla on yrttiä ja tummaa suklaata. Suutuntuma on täyteläisen katkera, kitkeryyskin jää hieman suuhun. Kokonaisuutena aromaattisen hajuinen IS, joka on omaan makuun hieman kitkerä.

Imaena (2083) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
This is quite dry and has lots of bitterness and sourness. Roasted malts, sour cherry stones, and burnt straw. This is definitely interesting and worth trying. It is different every sip.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with average, creamy tan head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted and caramel malts, chocolate, figs, dates, light brandy, and vanilla. Flavor is roast malt forward with good supporting dark fruit esters, chocolate, and light smoke; dry, lightly ashy finish. Medium/full and low carbonation.

TimE (4118) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2012
tobacco, dark chocolate, dark fruit, lovely. Dry full bodied, tons of coffee, treacles and tobacco. Just superb. Dry. Alcohol well hidden. Really an amazing stout. Mouth is super well balanced. Superb.

poisoneddwarf (1953) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Pours inky black with a thin tan head. Aroma consists of tar, licorice, chocolate milk, chocolate-covered caramels. Taste is mostly sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is oily, body is medium (low for such a high ABV impy stout). Nice one, but it’s not blowing me away. Now for the Yang...

kraddel (4563) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2012
pours the blackest thing that is not black ( like 99,99 % black, the rest is dark brown and red. nice ! small brown foam rather oaty smell. oaty taste bitter, some coffe, little hops as well. bit too much carbo for my taste. aftertaste is bitter, going to a more coffee-kind of thing. overall not a bad beer, but more like what a good imperial stout should be for a minimum ( sadly some are below ) . there are betters but this wraps it up pretty good.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours an almost black color with a moderate tan head to it. Nose is dark and malty. Taste has some roasted notes to it, yet is mild and easy to drink.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 30, 2012
ABO / Armando, Balázs, Ogre, abnormális sörkóstoló társaság, ami néha összejön és főleg a két első, alapító ember jóvoltából, különleges söröket kóstolgat zabolázatlanul. Köszönet Nekik érte! / Olyan fekete, mint amilyennek egy imperial stoutnak lennie kell. Illata alkoholos, égetett cukros, dohányfüstös, medvecukros, kormos és kávés. Íze tele van gyógyfüvekkel, kávélikőrrel, gyantás komlóval, bocskorszíj cukorral. Sűrű, mint az olaj és igen nehéz ital, kevés buborékkal. Utóíze kesernyés, kissé ragadós. Nehéz egy ital ez, ami többfelől támad a keserű ízeivel.
