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).

Heavy doses of rich, dark chocolate define this beer. Fairly complex with notes of espresso, vanilla, raisins, licorice and molasses. A very slight sourness that actually compliments the other flavors. Frothy feel, but I could stand a heavier body.

Handypaul (412) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a full brown head that regrettably leaves only a little lace. Aroma is roasted malts, mocha, a bit of alcohol, burnt sugar. Taste is lightly sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body, creamy texture, average to lively carbonation which softens quickly, lots of dark roasted malts and a brief but bitter finish. Hides the alcohol very well. Very good.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
12oz bottle - The beer pours out a dense black body, creamy brown head. Aroma is dominated by mocha and light alcohol. Tons of roasted malts, and just a little too much black malt used, because I get an ashy-tarry like profile that is off-putting and alcohol seems to amplify the ashy finish. Not bad.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Smells very roasty and chocolatey. Has a very heavy mouthfeel, carbonation is great, roasty, woody, vanilla. It’s very fun, nothing over-the-top...just a solid brew.

MarinEvelyn (796) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2013
aroma..malt, chocolate, a little cocoa, a little roasty, a little vanilla. Tastes very similar, malty, a little bit of a bitter finish, but just barely, and a little bit of alcohol, but barely perceivable.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of brownie, cake, dark chocolate, some coffee, some slight roast, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, smoke, hints of vanilla, touch of brownie, slight earthy and spicy tones, finishing fairly mixed between bitter and dry.

Beaver (1624) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy brown head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is a little subdued - roasted chocolate malts and some black licorice and a little smoke.

The flavor is some sweetness up front with heavily roasted chocolate malts and some dark fruit and black licorice. There’s lots of charred bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, but a bit watery.

Overall, it’s got too much charred bitter roast.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2013
On tap at Von Trappe Seattle. Pitch dark brown with thick, creamy brown cap. Very smooth, dark chocolate taste. Aroma is subtle chocolate and molasses. Quite a good beer.
