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).

dnstone (2140) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Sweet hot-chocolate aroma. Bkack in color with nice off-white head.Also moderately sweet in flavor, yet quite balanced; lightly roasty but full bodied and flavored with a bit of apple/lemon fruitiness in the finish under the chocolatiness. Deceptivly strong. Chocolate is the major component of the flavor and really a delicious stout...good with desert.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours deep opaque black, 1-finger thick dark tan head, really quite nice lacing, Nose is big fudgy sweetness, some roast/creosote, lots of fudgy chocolate and light nuttiness. Smells like baking brownies. Flavours of cocoa, fudge, light spice, no real hint of alcohol, real "brownie batter" thing going on here. Pleasant, thoroughly enjoyed, sweeter Imperial Stout.

poisoneddwarf (1716) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Pours inky black with a thin tan head. Aroma consists of tar, licorice, chocolate milk, chocolate-covered caramels. Taste is mostly sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is oily, body is medium (low for such a high ABV impy stout). Nice one, but it’s not blowing me away. Now for the Yang...

Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana ja ruskealla vaahdolla. Haju on palaneen paahteinen, suklainen, lakritsinen, hieman salmiakkinen ja kahviakin löytyy. Maku on palaneen kahvinen, hieman tuhkainen, kitkerä, taustalla on yrttiä ja tummaa suklaata. Suutuntuma on täyteläisen katkera, kitkeryyskin jää hieman suuhun. Kokonaisuutena aromaattisen hajuinen IS, joka on omaan makuun hieman kitkerä.

bottle shared with fred82. pours very dark brown, i should say black, with a small beige crema cap, some retention. burnt caramel, big roasted notes that leads to smoky, mineral and umami notes, molasses and maple - some uncloying sweetness. booze but somewhat well hidden. soft carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, nice resinous finish. an impy on the sweet roasted side that still is balanced. much enjoyet it.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
330ml bottle shared by czar.
Appearance : Pitch black with a small head.
Aroma : Big rich roasted malts with light piny hops. Slightly resinous. Light tar and ashes.
Taste : Roasted malt and coffee. Piny and resinous hops. Fairly warming finish with sharp bitterness.
Overall : Really nice beer. Great richness of the malts with nice ashy/tar notes that remind me of some of the Brewdog Paradox or some MIkkeller Black. Not too intense on the ashes which keeps the beer balanced but complex. Light alcohol that helps make the heavy malt a bit lighter. A very elegant and well made imperial stout.
