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).

Oakes (12539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
Very dark brown. Inky-looking texture and no head. Rich, meaty, roasty intense aroma. Odd combo of soft chocolate with meaty notes. Quite rich, full-bodied and with some alcohol in the finish.

Maddog (392) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2011
My first Evil Twin. Opaque black, this huge imperial stout has big aromas of dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee. Flavors are monstrous with dark roasted malts exploding with dark roasted coffee and a big hop presence. One hell of a man’s brew.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Sm bottle. Viscous black. Scant head. Aroma is woody and rich, with ink, peat, lead, salt, roasted nuts, and booze. Very smoky on the palate. Barbecue and charcoal coals in the foreground, but doesn’t taste burnt. Ok maybe a little but not so much. Finishes soft. Lots of espresso, brewed, an earthy varietal with toasted hazelnut and 90% chocolate in the finish. Really a beer for ppl who like good espresso. By no means unusual for an impy but is intense, complex, and good. I really really wish I had read the label before buying, the part about how nice it is blended with the yang...or i would have bought and opened both together. Something to look forward to I guess :)

reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
330ml bottle poured almost black in color with 2 fingers of light brown head leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with a bit of coffee. Taste is roasted malts and coffee. Heavy bodied and nicely carbonated leaving a nice feeling on the palate. This is one helluva nice Imperial Stout.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle ($10 for a 11.2ozer) with a best before of 2015. Black hued pour (not particularly thick) with a large brown head (creamy texture that lasts). Aromas of fudge, iodine, molasses, raisins, dark fruits, brown sugar, bready, dusty, cocoa, very rich. Alcohol and a bit of smoke. Flavors are bitter, roasty and a bit smokey. Ash tray, and a bit of acidic, astringent roast. Quite bitter overall. Dark fruits, iodine currants. Bitter, very roasty. Lingering after taste of tar. Medium to slightly fuller body. Some alcohol and chalkiness on the mouthfeel with mild astringencies. Medium to light carbonation. Decent. A bit heavy handed on roasted barley and/or black patent.

Finn (4167) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,33l spandert av og delt med Rune under rateseanse hjemme hos ham 13 Okt 11. Svart. OK svakt farget skum som henger igjen på glasset. Røstet kaffe & lakrisaroma. Kraftig smak. Sjokolade & lakris. Glir over i en god tørr bitter ettersmak. Svak alkoholsødme. Fin balanse. (Ølbutikken København)

BenH (2321) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2011
From bottle. Sweet chocolate smokey aroma. Taste is slightly smokey, coffee, chocolate. Velvety mouthfeel, sweet and sticky. The mixture of the two is deffinately a more interesting drink than either one alone

jaghana (3887) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle 33cl from Allen thanks, a dark beer with medium creamy brownish head. Nose is very roasted and alcoholic like. Aroma is malty, roasted, ash notes, coffee like, bit harsh with a creamy consistency. Long roasted aftertaste of moca and bitter dark chocolate, nice creamy texture, in the average on aromas.
