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).

Pours black haze-opaque colour, with brown-beige firm head, which stays untouch for a few minutes. Aroma without note of an alcohol and strong note of dark and milk chocolate, molasses, vanilla and cocoa powder. Flavor: alcohol note is strong, somehow liquoric and practically dominates over other flavors. Anyway, still are noticable hints of dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, even of tobbaco, dark fruits, especially plums, cherry (actually esters of hops). Namely this beer have surprisingly high hop bitterness. But it is very well balanced with malt sweetness, which is also high. Finish is sticky-dry and bitter- spicy. Body is soft, carbonation also. Overall proper imperial stout.

6 oz pour from chilled bottle into sniffer. Very dark color, opaque, solid tan head. Dry and smooth. A little chocolate. Tasty and well mixed with yang. I’d love to try more than a few sips before mixing it.

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.
