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).

Black with a big, tan head. The aroma has cola, toffee, chocolate, and some herbal notes. It has a medium body with silky texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a roasted chocolate finish.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
2014-04-19. Black body with a very small tan head. 3+ Aroma is surprisingly mild, dusty dark malt. Lightly tangy fruit accents. 7+ Flavour is similar, dark malt core, mild cocoa and fruit accents. Very smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, modest carbonation. 3++ Really solid and surprisingly nuanced, easy to think its simple but there is more going on that it seems at first. On tap at Torst, Brooklyn

Bottle pour opaque black with thick tan head. Nose light roast and chocolate but more sweet malt and dark fruit. Taste mild roast grain, mild chocolate, some sweet dark fruit. Later palate bitterness transition to pleasing bitter and roasted finish. Mouth feel just average.

Mep3222 (403) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Chocolate and roasted malt. Not sweet for an imperial. Almost bordering on a dry stout. Very nice. Cocoa and coffee come through. Doesn't seem strong. Enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (4022) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is creamy roasted malt, chocolate, light smoke. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a roasted malt, earthy mineral, chocolate, grass hop bitter palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Super smooth and flavour packed. Very satisfying.

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Deep black pour. The aroma has a lot less malt sweetness and more of the typical stouty goodness. Dry roast and soft pepper. A little bit of sweetness along with some heavy charry roast. It’s pretty nice stuff really. Assertive bitterness but still balanced.

TheEpeeist (3277) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. Ebony with a big foamy tan head and drippy lace. Nose is blueberry preserves and dusty coffee with hints of chocolate. Thick and creamy with a buzz. Could certainly hold up its side of a black & tan. Taste is chocolate, molasses, coffee and bitter licorice. Reminds me of a stepped down Black Hole.
