COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial India Black Stout. This is a complete RTD Black and Tan. Not just any Black and Tan but the one where we flawlessly mixed a flippant good Imperial IPA with a profoundly evil Imperial Stout and sustained sweet beer balance. 33% Stout and 67% IPA.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, but clear around the edges, mahogany with a creamy 1-finger tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, citrus, chocolate and coffee. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, citrus, roasted coffee and caramel with a little spiciness in the finish.

Fules (1186) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 30, 2016
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Pohárba töltéskor black ipás, később inkább porteres-stoutos jegyeket mutató illat.Enyhén édeskés, pörkölt malátás, fekete csokis ízvilág, komoly komlós fűszerességgel, hosszú lecsengéssel. Testes, közepesen keserű, enyhén szénsavas. Finom, jól összehangolt sör.

SG111 (1746) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Sample at B spot, Auburn Hills. Pours dark, tan head. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, some hoppy citrus, minimal coffee and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, citrus. Drinks more like a really hoppy Stout, but I guess you’d still call it black ipa territory. Medium mouthfeel. Decent. Doesn’t blow my mind.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Rating #2153 - 1/3 Yin and 2/3 Yang in bottle. 2015.11.05 - Willow Park Beer Bash. Pours a thuggy twin brother waiting in the alley black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the earthy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.

sharkydodson (1544) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - SEP 2, 2016
the aroma is caramel and hoppy with shades of nuts, toast, pine, citrus and spicy herbs... the taste is caramel and spicy with notes of roasted malt, bitter citrus, pine needles, nuts and spicy grasses... bitter and dry aftertaste...

Bottle into wine glass. Sometimes I manage to really enjoy these BIPA’s. This time wasn’t really one of them. Nice viscosity but just too much hops bitterness and hops to balance the dark side of it. Imo.

vincentvega72 (722) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2016
Zwart bier met fijne crčmekleurige schuimkraag. Zoet caramelachtig aroma. Mooi zacht van smaak (drop, mout, bitter). Lange bittere afdronk. De Yang heeft in deze duidelijk de bovenhand boven de Yin maar het is toch een heel lekker bier geworden.

4.7
josanguapo (1614) - SPAIN - AUG 12, 2016
From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 1x08. DIPA in nose, soft IS in mouth at beginning and end of sip, hoppy in the middle. Much more drinkable than their separate parts, alcohol unnoticeable

drjay44 (3676) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Draft. Pours a medium thick, light beige, rapidly collapsing head, with minimal lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body......nose is roasted malts with chocolate, coffee notes, mild herbal hops, malts dominant......taste is roasted malts with chocolate, coffee notes, mild hints of dried fruits, hints of molasses, burnt sugar, light spice tones, finishing with lingering mild hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, creamy, moderate alcohol warmth, high carbonation. This is an interesting beer with minimal Imperial Stout characteristics, except for the dark malts, with no dried fruits, and the hops are relatively hidden throughout. It misses the Black IPA style, as it is muddled and not particularly clean. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6
