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).

Pours black haze-opaque colour, with brown-beige firm head, which stays untouch for a few minutes. Aroma without note of an alcohol and strong note of dark and milk chocolate, molasses, vanilla and cocoa powder. Flavor: alcohol note is strong, somehow liquoric and practically dominates over other flavors. Anyway, still are noticable hints of dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, even of tobbaco, dark fruits, especially plums, cherry (actually esters of hops). Namely this beer have surprisingly high hop bitterness. But it is very well balanced with malt sweetness, which is also high. Finish is sticky-dry and bitter- spicy. Body is soft, carbonation also. Overall proper imperial stout.

355ml bottle. Balck pour, Just a really annoyingly bad stout, riddled with off notes, but not acetoney like some of its bretheren.

TorbenJensen (1394) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2015
It is a thick black stout with thin nougat colored foam. Fine lace occur in the glass, and its aroma is most roasted malt. Lovely rich flavor of coffee with a little touch of dark bitter chocolate. In conclusion, the good warming alcohol, though not overwhelming. Although I do not really think it brings something new to the world, as you have not tasted before, it’s still a nice stout that deserves great attention.

ljthiessen (901) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Black pour with a thick, dense tan head. Aroma is roasty and a little creamy, chocolate notes. Flavour is sweet chocolate and a bitter roastiness, some dark fruits underneath as well, a touch of cherries. Perhaps a touch sweet, but very tasty.

Panzerfaust (676) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUL 25, 2015
330 ml bottle from Club de Cervezas, Chile. Pours deep black color with some burgundy hues against a strong source of light. Less than 1 finger of a tight tan head diminishes into a small film that lingers. Aroma is a malt bomb: Highly roasted character gives notes of dark chocolate, licorice, raisins, toasted hazelnuts and roasted, caramelized sugars. I swear I could detect hints of vanilla or American oak... Maybe not extremely complex but it hits in the right spot. Taste is more straight-forward, starting with caramelly sweetness and hints of molasses but increasingly roasty towards the end. The last few sips feel almost too sweet. It leaves a fine roasted aftertaste. Medium to big body. It reminds me of Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout more than monstrous booze-bombs like BrewDog Tokyo* or Mikkeller Black Hole. It’s a good brew but I think I liked it much more at the beginning of my tasting and noticeably less during the last few sips.
