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).

onceblind (6618) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Dark heavy brown with a thin khaki head. Nose is roasty and dark sweet with a touch of coffee and light rye like notes. Flavor is bitter with roastiness and rye maybe, but blends into a roasted malt flavor with a touch of dark roast coffee. Pretty roasty with ample bitterness. Had a weird syrupy finish.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle at room temperature. Pours deep brown with rocky tan head, good retention, replenishing even. Minimal lacing. Aroma is strong roasted malt, chocolate, slightly charred/smoked. Flavor is mild roasted malt, with a smoky, roasted, dark chocolate finish. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. Quite good.

wchesser (1774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Deep brown, minimal head. Hoppy nose with dark malts and dark coffee elements on nose rate follows with bitter hop finish. Good but don’t go for hoppy porters myself.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle. Dark chocolate to the aroma as well as booze, but overall fairly light in that regard. The taste has alcohol up front, with dark chocolate and an overall roasted property to it. Mellow to slightly bitter finish. 10% alcohol.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Relate 1/16. Increased from 3.4. Got much more chocolate this time in taste. Also we’ll blended roast.........................Complex nose. Rich dark chocolate and heavy roast slight booze aroma. Taste not as good as aroma. Choc and burnt roast in flavor plus some bitterness. Bitterness lowers score a little

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2013
Yin has been in my cellar a few years.... It’s pitch black with a nougat head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, fruits - and not very overwhelming. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, licorice, coffee, hints of dark chocolate, preserved fruits, and the finish is pleasant in a mellow yet feisty way!

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Poured from a 330ml bottle. Jet black with light caramel head. Great toffee and bitter chocolate on the nose. The flavor is more of the same, huge dark roast

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Had the Yang tonight. Wish I would have thought about doing the Black and Tan thing before hand, but this is most certainly the better of the two. Pours deep black with splashy mocha head. Smell is lot of coffee, sweet milk chocolate, mocha, caramel, creamy. Just nice. Taste however is just a bit of a let down. Immediately I get a metallic splash then the other flavors of cocoa and coffee follow. A bit of booze and dark roasted/slight char finishes out. Mild bitterness and a medium body. Pretty good.

Bottle. Black beer with white head. Bitter, hoppy taste with hints of coffee. Aroma of hops and roasted coffee. Bitter aftertaste. Decent beer
