COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA and Stout converge for a really great flavor combination to create a rich and robust black & tan. The assertive hoppy character of our Hoppin to Heaven IPA is perfectly complimented by the intense deep roasted flavor of our BORIS Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Two great tastes that taste even better together.

tmrmwel (756) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a finger thick mocha head. Aroma is quite hoppy, but with nice burned notes, lactose and leather. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter with orange peel, before lots of roasted malts kick in with notes of tobacco and liquorice. Long bitter finish with eucalyptus, as well as some notes of leather. Rather strange, but very nice.

Westchesterco (790) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a black beer with a tan head. The aroma I’d of licorice the taste is the licorice with chocolate and some sherry overtones. Lingers smooth on the palate.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 650ml ($6.50): Pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some melted sugar, some a little liquor or barrel or something like that, but the hops are very subdued in the aroma. Taste is somewhat sweet, bitterness is around toward the finish and aftertaste. The BORIS vastly overshadows the Hoppin to Heaven in my opinion. Imperial stout cut with IPA. Easy to drink, complex.

BMMillsy (1150) - Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle to tulip, pours dark brown with a small kahki head. My first black and tan (other than Yuengling). I am assuming this bottle is a little older than is optimal, but that's OK. Aroma is really interesting. Pine and citrus up front with string sweet roasted malt notes and hints of chocolate and molasses. Flavor is big sweet notes, followed by lingering roast. Only a bit of bitter pine, and it is just a bit overly sweet, but not undrinkable. Medium slick mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Cool beer.

ReggieDunlap (2927) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2013
Pours black with a thick tan head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has some roast and citrus and light hoppy spice...hint of tea. Flavor has notes of coffee and molasses with some earthy pine and light citrus accents. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a roasty/piney dry finish that lingers to burnt. Drinks mostly like a nice BIPA.
