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 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was black malt vinous brown malt roasted malt coffee and licorice. The smooth mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering vinous aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of semi-sweet black malt roasted malt vinous toasted malt licorice and brown malt. A wonderful best in class brew.

Evil Twin’s Yin is most definitely a creation of pure evil. It’s abysmally black and gorgeously heady. Aroma packs a punch with roasted (almost burnt) grains, dark chocolate, coffee, and booze. Taste follows suit. Body is supremely smooth, full, warm, and rich. This one reminded me a lot of Ten FIDY. Even the color scheme of the packaging is similar. I’m onto you, Evil Twin. Imitation is the most sincerely evil form of flattery.

travita (4642) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. The look is dark, decent tan head, and black in color. The smell is roast, burnt malts, toast, chocolate, mochas, and rich. The taste is much the same, good overall, good stout.

poech73 (319) - Braine, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2015
Très bon Imperial Stout au nez magnifique très aromatique: senteurs de café moulu caramélisé aigrelet avec de la levure. Beau corps épais, assez souple, aux saveurs de café à la molasse et à la réglisse, accompagné d’arômes de cacao, de cendre, le tout se finissant sur un amertume résineuse un peu rêche. Dommage cette sensation sirupeuse peu lourde qui jure un peu sur le beau maltage torréfié et une saveur cendrée trop persistant à mon goût. #302

Nice Imperial stout, plenty of roasted malts, coffee bitterness, hints of chocolate and faint dark fruits. Smooth with a slight alcohol burn as it goes down leaving a warming sensation.

Big coffee flavor with a little dark chocolate and spice. Lots of lacing. Black with a medium brown head. Drinks lighter than ABV. Enjoyed tremendously.
