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).

sic1314 (4703) - 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 (1298) - 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.

Ktwse (2560) - SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2012
Pours black with minimal tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, coffee, 70% chocolate. Smoky and woody. Taste is surprisingly light, rich in wood and smoke but lacking a true imperial stout presence. Body is a touch light, but with a long, pleasant chocolatey bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (2195) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
Grabbed a bottle of this at Winnoski Beverage House but unable to grab the Yang - still happy to try one of them though. Black with an initially creamy mocha head that settles out quickly to a thin but potent film. Toasted malts with a hint of anise, bitter chocolate, alcohol, bit of fruit. Full body and pleasant carbonation, bittersweet, some more alcohol and anise, long finish. Interesting.

VertBaconStrips (2150) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Beer. Black. Dark brown head. Hahah the coyote just had on his green bat suit and got crushed by a cliff. Ultra classic. Oatmeal, soft mild chocolate, faint sweetness, soft earth, the faintest of licorice - not even sure I can smell it. Pretty good taste. I could drink many to quench the thirst of drunkenness. Light burnt after taste. Excellent roast, noticeable burn, bakers chocolate, oatmeal I think, full taste with not a lot of complexity and not a lot of vision but who cares - this just is damn easy to consume. Very smooth just the way it is. Yum yum. Terrible review. Wonderful beer.

glennmastrange (2383) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of toasted almost burnt, and molasses, moderate perfume and pine resin for the hops, dough for the yeast, with faint hints of tar and anise. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, light brown with fair slippery lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing to a small ring. Color is almost black. Flavor is lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then the extra long finish moderately acidic and heavily to harshly bitter. Palate medium to full, creamy, with a soft carbonation and a chalky, moderately alcoholic and very dry finish. This is a powerful Imperial Stout with a bit of a harsh side in the finish.
