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).

This was poured from a bottle at home in a tulip glass. It pours a nice brown head. I was initially struck by a yeasty/basement aroma that gave way to chocolate and coffee. It is moderately sweet with medium bitterness. Overall, a very good to excellent Imperial Stout.

Bottle at home split with sarah from bottle shop St Albans. Opaque black dark brown coloured pour with a thin medium tan head. Aromas are burnt sugars, harsh ashy roast, dark choc and booze. As the beer opens up a bit I get more dried fruits and hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of dark choc, dried fruits, woody and booze. Palate is smooth medium full with moderate mouth filling carbonation. Long duration of roasted malt wood and dried fruits. Good but slightly harsh.

Aroma: Slightly benign Appearance: A beautiful black beer, with a rich thick tan foamy head Taste: Medium bitterness up front, balanced with a lightly sour/salty backend Palate: Full bodied with an oily, slick texture, flat carbonation with a slightly astringent finish Overall: A decent stout, definitely middle of the road for me.

From the tap came a black hole in a tulip glass emanating aromas of chocolate, vannila, and coffee followed by flavors of the same and a nice hop sizzle.

Tap @ Cap Ale Downtown. Dark brown with mocha head and generous lacing. I get smells of roast, dark fruit, coconut, and booze ( and maybe cocoa). Nice dry bitter flavor with some roastiness. Bold then finishes dry. I like.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark black with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, and raisins. Taste is sweet on the tongue with the focus being on the coffee notes. Medium bodied beer with light carbonation and an oily mouth feel. Nice beer.

It's very STOUT and very BITTER. I enjoy a good stout regularly and despite its rating not going to be my future choice. Taste of coffee and smokiness enjoyable but overwhelmed by bitter finish.

GIJOE (635) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours nearly black with a thick brownish head that stays. Generous lacing. Dark-roasted malt on the nose with notes of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Taste quite bitter, like quality dark chocolate, but the huge malt bill is evident in the rich backbone of this beastly brew. Full body, lively carbonation, with a long booze-filled chocolate sort of finish. Excellent brew!

Bottle thanks to mittenator. Deep brown and tan head. Very toasty. Almost tastes like a foreign stout.

rockana (228) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours dark brown with mininal brownish head. Full body. Aroma of some caramel, chocolate, some coffee, some nuts, dark fruits. Pleasant coffee bitterish aftertaste. Really good.
