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).

Pour pitch black, with a small brown head. Aroma is quite roasty roasty, with coffee, vanilla and a lot of oatmeal. This brew is quite smooth. The taste is sweet, with a nice roastyness to it. Medium oily body, with a semi-flat carb.

RichardW (1528) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2012
bottle, mybrewerytap.com. Where do you start with this monster!? Pours rich, thick and black. Aromas of treacle, tar, coffee and chocolate all coating the palate in a heady mix that doesn’t cloy or thicken. Like the Yang, it warms quickly on the way down. Leaves a slightly smoked air in the nostrils. This is big and I love it!!

swoopjones (5980) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo NY. Black black pour with creamy darker tan head. aromas was more subtle than expected, mild roast. Fuller mouthfeel, decent but somewhat subdued flavor. Drank this after the big & flavorful De Molen Rasputin so that may have something to do with it. Pretty roasty flavor, peppery. Solid stout

Taste is sweet and bitter with smoked wood, heavily roasted malts, liquorice, peat, coffee and some bitter chocolate. Finish is dry and bitter with coffee.

gEUS (1166) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2012
33cl bottle - afterwards mixed with the Yang - 1.5 year in the bottle. Pours pitch black with a beige head. The first few sniffs revealed an incredible meat smokiness on charcoal character (Like the German ham from the Scwarzwald), afterwards (when heated a bit) the typical roasted notes, some mocca, some dark chocolate. As the Yin, there taste is on the sweet side while finishing is very dry. Nice RIS!

bax (1147) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
(Bottle 16/01-2012) Low brown head, black color, slightly roasted coffee aroma, roasted chocolate coffee taste, balanced taste, medium body, well covered alcohol. BB date 2015. Mix 50/50: dark black red color, Yang dominate aroma, slightly uncovered alcohol. I think it should have been 66% Yin 33% Yang.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Tap at TapRoom307. Poured a dark black with a beige ring for a head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla , and espresso. Flavor follows that nose. Rich and creamy mouthful. An intense bitterness ends this, like a great cup of chocolate espresso. Slight hint of warming. Really well done
