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).

Bold black and beautiful. Pours an inky black and brown. Chocolate and bourbon nose. Spicy almost with hints of chicory and clear notes of chocolate and roasted malts. This bold brew belongs in the hall of fame. Yup, it's that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Evolutionary (343) - Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle from Baldwin beer store. Nose is heavy thick malt. Maybe rubber. Smooth at fist with acrid to follow. Not amazing. Would drink but wouldn't go out of my way to get.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 13, 2015
Was in quite bad condition, but definitely catched high quality brew. Quite intense roasted malts.. lots of them, lovely mild dark choco, bit licorice. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Nicely warming. If tar is common association with IMP stouts, then this is definitely one of most tar-like IMPS. Awesome brew. must repeat

A solid imperial stout on its own but i guess I should have another one mixed with Yang. Nice and oily with a decent tan head. Classic stout - chocolate, molasses in the malt. Hops stay in the background. Well done.

King_Alex_II (384) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Pitch black, brown foam. The smell is coffeeish sweet. The taste is quite sweet and dry, oily and with a rather thick viscosity. The carbonation stays behind and leaves the show to the rest. This beer is well balanced. The right beverage to sip while sitting in your armchair in front of your fireplace while observing the snow outside.

SinH4 (678) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Black color with medium tan head that goes down quickly. Aroma is chocolate, fresh, a bit fruity. Taste is rich, chocolate, roasted malts, a nice Imperial Stout taste. Bitter warming finish, not as warming as the Yang though. Smooth carbonation. A solid Imperial Stout, nice.

chinchill (2714) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Poured from a brown 12oz bottle, bottled on 3/13/13, into a snifter. Initial temp. about 45F. A - Poured very dark ruby-brown and looks black in the glass. The smallish head soon reduced to a partial coat and thick ring.that left spotty lacing behind. This is a decent looking stout. S- Burnt toast; dark roasted grains and an odd floral element that (after tasting) seems to be from hops and alcohol. Off-putting at first, I mostly adjusted after a few sips. Still, the strange aroma led me to search (in vain) the label for hints of odd ingredients. High ABV is not hidden here. T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma at first, particularly in being ignificantly sweet, but this fades quickly, eventually ending n a mildly bitter aftertaste. Only a little bit of burnt grain and char but plenty of dark roasted grain flavor. There’s a modicum of boozy alcohol but the ABV is partly hidden, and a positive facotr, in tasting. Feel: full and smooth with near medium carbonation. Overall: an interesting and appropriately rich imperial stout. Improved with warming/adaptation.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Black colour no head. Aroma has chocolate, and fruit but no much else. Taste is sweetish. But just ok.
