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 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.

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.

arminjewell (6159) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of brownie, cake, dark chocolate, some coffee, some slight roast, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, smoke, hints of vanilla, touch of brownie, slight earthy and spicy tones, finishing fairly mixed between bitter and dry.

Bottle. Pours black with a full brown head that regrettably leaves only a little lace. Aroma is roasted malts, mocha, a bit of alcohol, burnt sugar. Taste is lightly sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body, creamy texture, average to lively carbonation which softens quickly, lots of dark roasted malts and a brief but bitter finish. Hides the alcohol very well. Very good.

Bottle at the parentals with my faj. Pour is pitch black with a frothy brown head and good lacing. Big tar, cocoa, vanilla, coffee, woody, graham crackers, and leathery aroma. Taste is chocolate, char, almost nutty, espresso, earthy, leather, and grapes with toasted bitter finish. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Damn decent stout.
