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).

Draft. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasted malty and sweet aroma with a hint of vanilla. The flavor has roasted malts and coffee with caramel and vanilla sweetness. Good stuff.

330. Pours an absolutely impenetrable obsidian jet black with a big creamy burnt tan head that falls away to film as soon as it touches skin even for a second. Nice sweet chocolatey roasty nose with coffee showing...now, how are you supposed to differentiate between the 250 imperial stouts that smell the exact way on paper? Half the world’s impies are chocolate, roast, and coffee. You have to get into liquorice, smoke, soy sauce and things before you really make a name for yourself with your nose as an imperial stout. So reading about this beer isn’t gonna make much of it. Chocolate, coffee, roast. There ya go. Sticky body on the high side of medium but not quite thick exactly. Sluggish carb. Roasty chocolate mid palate with nice coffee accents. Long sweetish roasty finish. Not doing justice in words at all to the pleasure of drinking this beer, but neither is drinking this beer a particular revelation to the experienced connoisseur of imperial stouts. It’s just nice. And who doesn’t like a nice beer? I love a nice beer. Shut up. I’m-a go finish this.

Bottle sample at the Evil Twin tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits on 5/19/11. Black pour with a medium tan to light brown head. Roasty aroma with some smoke, dark fruit and chocolate. Malty flavor with bitter dark chocolate, roast and smoke before a bitter coffee finish.

gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Smelled like burnt coffee and mildly of black licorice. The immediate tastes were coffee and chocolate, but that was subdued by the bitterness that took over at the end. My mouth thought it was going to be sweet, but then the bitterness punched me in the face.

trevor211 (1408) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Pours opaque black, with a decent head on it. Deep, dark roast on the nose -- coffee-rubbed beef jerky and molasses. Nice, thick mouthfeel, big flavor... lots of coffee and dark-roasted grains on the front end, moving into a sweeter, almost meatier flavor. There’s a good smokiness in here that works really well.

BeerandBlues2 (10689) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Tap at Local Option. Pours opaque with a medium, bubbly brown head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, roast, chocolate, coffee), light hops (earthy), and notes of alcohol, figs, licorice andalcohol wood. Flavor is heavy malt, light alcohol, and bitter hops. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry finish.

Bottle courtesy of Zach at the grand tasting at RBSG in Philly. Pours a deep black with ruby highlights. Big roast, chocolate and coffee. Super big, roasty and sweet. Roast, sweet chocolate, more roast. Long roast filled chocolate and cocoa finish.

Hoprider (149) - DENMARK - JUN 23, 2011
Thick black with a beautiful brown head. Nose is great with roasted sweetness and a little hop to ballance. Taste is on the roasted side. Licorice, coffee and hard roasted malt playing lead roles. Not picking up any fruity notes but there is sweetness underneath - especially after resting a while - to ballance the whole. Mouthfeel improves by the sip and leaves a beautifully ballanced impression. Best of Evil Twin so far if you ask me.

Tmoney99 (11800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate malt, earthy hop and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet roasted black sweet coffee and dark chocolate flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a near standout beer.
