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 is a good one. It’s black as shit and had a nice brown head. It’s aroma and taste are interesting. I can’t really pick out any specific flavors, It’s it’s own flavor. It kind of tastes like a thick stout with a stout with hops placed very well in it.

Gluepot (391) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
A dense tan head on a dense, near black body. The nose is a party - some booze, ripe berries, coffee and fruity hops. This is a stupendous imperial stout. First taste is near burnt toffee, toast, and fresh ground, slightly bitter coffee. Other tastes include ripe berries, fruity hops, unsweetened chocolate and a touch of leather. Solid carbonation and a dense, rich body finish off a masterpiece.

Bottle poured back in the library, chillen... jyst now.
The beer pours black with a big tan head and a little bit of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is roasty, but it also has a bit of leafy hoppiness. It’s got some sweeter elements of licorice and toasted marshmallow. It’s got some burnt toast, certainly some alcohol, and a touch of plum like fruitiness.

The flavor is actually extraordinarily balanced. It’s got the sweeter marshmallow, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and licorice flavors... but the roastiness and bitterness along with the surprisingly light but well employed warmness from the alcohol lend some nice balance here. It’s got burnt toast, it’s got a little bit of raisin, it’s got a bit of leafy hops.

I quite enjoy this actually.
