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).

JohnnyJ (4080) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle. Black pour, with a nice tan head. Sweet milk and bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt, moderate sweetness, burnt sugars, coffee, and the abv is only slightly noticeable. Pretty decent imp stout.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
So the Yin without the Yang. And I must say after a good three weeks without a beer and to match the heat being back in Perth off we go with this one!
At close to room temperature a low ‘flufft’ when the cap releases offers a glimpse of rich chocolate to the olfactories. In the glass it is stubbornly bubbly on the tannish crown but lifeless inside its oily, black brown body. But alas the head is shortlived and fades to grin the oily legs. Kelp, CO2, dried oregano, stale hops, fresh strapped leather and vinyl, a little spiced spirit and mace greet the nose. The chocolate now faded and jaded. Smooth, frothy mouthfeel. Dry, bitter malt finish, dusty, husky and long. A sticky, astringent sweetness cloys at the palate. A huff and a puff of smoke lasts well passed its due and given the cloy it doesn’t float well. Pecky, bitter herbs on the swallow, acridly done. Vodka-like burn is just fuel for me to say "over it!". Not a fan. Nothing here at all presentable. Just rough and rugged high alcohol. The black and tan mix needs a high volley to win me over. Average!! (33cL, Bottled 07/10/13, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Scrapersnbeer (1432) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Smokey roasted malt aroma, like a cured meat locker. Pitch black and leaves an oily brown film. Bittersweet saucy flavor, dark chocolate, butty coffee. Body is thick and chewy while leathery and dry. Minimal alcohol heat; a blunt instrument nonetheless.

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Very dark pour with a finely bubbled brown head. Aroma features some chocolate, hard roast, vague dark fruits, and an undercurrent of booziness. Dark fruits come forward on the palate, hard roast, with more apparent booziness. Prickly carbonation lends a harder mouthfeel. Hoppy bitter finish.

HKdIPA (114) - HONG KONG - JAN 8, 2014
Such a smokey bacony aroma (in a better way than other beers that promise that). Roasted malts, hoppy bitterness, bacon flavor. Pitch black. Yum.

pentaz (900) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a lasting and good lacing creamy tan thick medium head. Aroma is hard roasted malt, raisin, chocolate, overripe fruit, brown sugar, grapefruity hops and light bready. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is full, texture is smooth, oily and light sticky, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet, chalky and warming with hard roasted malt. Nice stuff.

SlackerMads (1241) - DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle shared by pentaz. Black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Roasted malt, licorice, burnt, light charcoal, chocolate. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Medium/heavy sweet with some roasted bitterness and light hot alcohol. Soft on the palate, yet intense in flavor. Roasted and light dry finish. Good stuff.

On 06/18/2011. Dark brown body with a small frothy tan head. Sweet chocolate and roast aroma. Sweet chocolate roast and fruit flavor. Medium full body with moderately low carbonation.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours black with a small, dark tan fading head. Nose shows cocoa, milk chocolate, vanilla and alcohol. Very roasty flavours, more milk chocolate, cocoa, booze and spicy hops. Quite brash. Needs more carbonation.
