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).

Reimer96 (1465) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours a dark inky black with a big creamy brown head that slowly dissipates. Leaves a nice amount of lace on the glass. Smells of toffee and roast malts. Tastes of toffee and coffee and leaves a nice bitterness. Very full bodied and one for the ages!

Black full stout with notes of coffee. Quite good but not exquisite. Soft sweet beer with some bitterness. Conceptually it could work with yang, but yang would need some more bitterness and hop aroma, now they both fade away ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Shared 33 cl bottle. Pours black in colour with a tan head. Roasted malts and coffee in aroma. Flavour is filled with coffee and perhaps some sweet dark fruits too.

Yorker (1483) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a large tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is liquorice, vanilla, toasted malt, bitter chocolate, dark fruits, and just a hint of hops. Flavour is bitter chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, some warming alcohol, and a slightly bitter finish.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2012
In short: A rich stout with liquorice, bitter black chocolate and surprising minty flavor. Fun beer
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed when a few months of age
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head leaving good lacings
In long: Rich inviting nose with black liquorice being upfront in the aroma and with black chocolate in the back. Taste is uncompromising, this is a tasty beer. High sweetness sensation on the attack, plenty of black liquorice, salty soy sauce, a few pieces of very bitter pure black chocolate, bitter black coffee, minty hops (very minty), a shot of Crème de Menthe. The minty was so strong that I don’t know if it can be only hop-related. This was a bit of a strange one, a bit aggressive, but also inexplicably drinkable. Pretty good, better than I expected. Another beer I’d happily drink again, and I might be an alcoholic but of all my problems, I think oniomania is the one I’m the most ashamed of, but oh well, I have to buy my beer somewhere.

Darkover (1525) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Black with a big brown head. Aroma of chocolate and sweet malts, some alcohol and dark fruits. Taste of dark chocolate and licorice, medium body, oily feel, pretty drinkable for an imperial stout.

sic1314 (4779) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2012
Pours dark with a heavy aroma of coffee and alcohol, Definitely tastes it’s strength. Very vinous and heavy. Bit of a chore to work through. Some spice in the aftertaste.

neepsntatties (1306) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Colour...essentially black with a thin tan head. Nose...loads of bittersweet chocolate with anise and char (and I don’t mean arctic char). Palate...thick, coating and obviously viscous with tons of anise, wet earth, charcoal and Dutch bittersweet chocolate with stone fruits and black currants. I think I need to try the Yin and Yang together!

Bottle pours mahogany with tan head. Aroma of breaded malts and dark fruits. Flavors of caramel, cinnamon bread, spices, and dark fruits. Very smooth and creamy with a peppery finish.
