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).

Aroma is interesting - more smoky than most Imperial Stouts. I like it, but it’s just different. The best way I can describe this aroma is opening up the grill when you’re cooking a good steak. In fact, I think I just found a food pairing for this beer. For some reason, it smells like red meat to me, but I like red meat so that’s ok. Black as night with a small tan head. A little more carbonated than most great stouts I have had - that’s what takes the appearance from a 5 to a 4. I’m picky. Taste is smoky, hoppy for an IS, roasty and has a mild cocoa flavor. Better with each sip, but a bit overwhelming at first. Palate is a bit watery for the size of this beer. More like a Black IPA than a stout. Good, but Yang and the Yin & Yang mixture were both better.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Pitch black with a tan head. Aroma contains some strong coffee and licorice. The flavor is actually well balanced with some dark chocolate, coffee, and licorice. The alcohol is hidden well. Really good beer.

Hopmaestro (970) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2016
Aroma is solid choclates and roasted malt, no surprise there. It also carries a red berry sensation underneath that was a bit surprising. Taste is sweet and thick with a tad of soy sauce in the roasted malts. A slight fruityness lingers and the aftertaste is long and bitter. A solid impy with small surprises in the experience that makes it more interesting than "just another stout".

On tap at csakajo. Black colour with a stiff brown head. Nose of roasted malts. Taste is medium bitterness with some hints of smoke. Nice but yin&yang is far better.
