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.

Smooth, nice mouth feel. Very pleasant but at the same time I found myself satisfied with just drinking one with no immediate plans for another. Notes of chocolate and coffee. No flavor too strong just amazingly well balanced. Not disappointed with the 3.75 I spent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at The Craven Arms, Birmingham. Black with tan head. Finally caught up with this having had the Yang a few years back. Blackened charry, tarry malts, bitter chocolate, bitter liquorice. Next effort will be to combine them. Jolly fine beer.

flatmatt (1161) - Northville, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Lots of roasty coffee in the aroma, just a hint of cocoa. Flavor is more varied, leaning more on cocoa, with roastiness, coffee, and anise. Slightly syrupy palate, though not too sweet. It’s pretty good.

freretoc (865) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur très noire, mousse marron qui tombe vite, peu d’effervescence, une bière assez intense au goût, café, chocolat, cacao, amère sur le furfural. Assez intense ensuite petite pointe réglisse.

dnicolaescu (945) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 4, 2014
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Black bitter chocolate with hints of vanilla. Robust roast without going over the top. The alcohol is there just to provide a little warmth and not more than that. Spicy hoppy finish with moderate to strong bitterness. Balanced, correct, solid but not exciting.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Rating #1102 - May 24, 2014 - Spring Fling at Liquor Select. Black as a kung fu master’s conscience, with a foamy tan cap at the top of the glass that fades to a ring. Aroma is heavy roast malt, burnt sugar, currant, raisin, smoke. Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character. Evocative of every evil imaginable - sampled solo, but so harmonious with Yang IPA - a true craft beer geek’s dream Black and Tan.

StoutHead (715) - DENMARK - NOV 26, 2014
Draught at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. Pours black with a small dense light-brown head. Good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste as aroma but also with notes of vanilla, licorice and dark fruits. Full body and soft carbonation. Sweet and creamy with a nice roasted finish.

Bottle. Wonderful roasted malt aroma with a lot of rich dark chocolate as well as a hint of vanilla. Pours black with a large, medium brown head and excellent lacing. Starts with a rich, silky mouthfeel and has good roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes extremely smooth with a hint of vanilla and the rich dark chocolate lingering nicely on the palate. Excellent stout.

PawelD (241) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, wiśnie w likierze. Kolor czarna smoła bez przebłysków, obfita beżowa piana do ostatniego łyka. W smaku gęste, na pierwszym planie gorycz słodów palonych, czekoladowych. Czuć belgijską czekoladę, espresso, przypalony spód od ciasta. Piwo mimo 10% wcale nie wali alkoholem(może lekko zaraz po otwarciu butelki) i jest bardzo gładkie, lekko wchodzi. Wysycenie niskie do średniego idealnie pasuje do całokształtu. Wybitna mieszanka.
