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).

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours cola with a small white head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Flavor is roasted and full of malt and heat. Really good mixing with the Yang!

Tap at Torst. Deep brown color, small beige head. Toasted, roasted and chocolaty aroma. Full-bodied. Roasted, coffee-licorice flavor. Very nicely in balance with warming alcohol.

Nice stout. Pours s beautiful black. The aroma lets you know what about to hit your tongue. Chocolate, a little sweet fruit, maybe even a hint of licorice.

IPAgutten79 (654) - Skui, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2015
Svart med lavt brunlig skum. Aroma av sjokolade, kaffe, gummi og røstet malt. I smaken finner jeg kaffe, noe lakris. sjokolade. Fint lite sting av bitterhet. Tykk kropp, lav karbonering. Oljete.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2612) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 22, 2015
Yin Imperial Taji Stout Only black with a thin rusty tan head that vanished quickly. It has a great coffee mocha aroma that evokes freshly baked brownies with a cup of coffee - delicious. Med-full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel. The taste is mocha, chocolate brownies, roasted barley or oats, some umami savouriness , sweet dark licorice & 70% cacao bitter chocolate - very good & more up my alley as I am not a huge hop head.

Steverus0 (209) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
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 (319) - 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 (831) - 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
