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).

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.

Svart med lavt brunlig skum. Aroma av sjokolade, kaffe, gummi og røstet malt. I smaken finner jeg kaffe, noe lakris. sjokolade. Fint lite sting av bitterhet. Tykk kropp, lav karbonering. Oljete.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2589) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 22, 2015
Yin Imperial Taji Stout Only black with a thin rusty tan head that vanished quickly. It has a great coffee mocha aroma that evokes freshly baked brownies with a cup of coffee - delicious. Med-full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel. The taste is mocha, chocolate brownies, roasted barley or oats, some umami savouriness , sweet dark licorice & 70% cacao bitter chocolate - very good & more up my alley as I am not a huge hop head.

Bold black and beautiful. Pours an inky black and brown. Chocolate and bourbon nose. Spicy almost with hints of chicory and clear notes of chocolate and roasted malts. This bold brew belongs in the hall of fame. Yup, it's that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Evolutionary (315) - Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle from Baldwin beer store. Nose is heavy thick malt. Maybe rubber. Smooth at fist with acrid to follow. Not amazing. Would drink but wouldn't go out of my way to get.

Vells (824) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 13, 2015
Was in quite bad condition, but definitely catched high quality brew. Quite intense roasted malts.. lots of them, lovely mild dark choco, bit licorice. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Nicely warming. If tar is common association with IMP stouts, then this is definitely one of most tar-like IMPS. Awesome brew. must repeat

A solid imperial stout on its own but i guess I should have another one mixed with Yang. Nice and oily with a decent tan head. Classic stout - chocolate, molasses in the malt. Hops stay in the background. Well done.

King_Alex_II (242) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Pitch black, brown foam. The smell is coffeeish sweet. The taste is quite sweet and dry, oily and with a rather thick viscosity. The carbonation stays behind and leaves the show to the rest. This beer is well balanced. The right beverage to sip while sitting in your armchair in front of your fireplace while observing the snow outside.

SinH4 (472) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Black color with medium tan head that goes down quickly. Aroma is chocolate, fresh, a bit fruity. Taste is rich, chocolate, roasted malts, a nice Imperial Stout taste. Bitter warming finish, not as warming as the Yang though. Smooth carbonation. A solid Imperial Stout, nice.
