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.

12oz bottle - pours an oily black with a very thin tan head. Solid roasty aroma with notes of burnt toast, coffee and subtle hops. Tasty and complex with layers of roasted grain, sweet coffee, more burnt toast and hints of bitter hops.

jamestulloch (3692) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle. Black body with a medium beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, honey, plastic and chocolate. Flavour of tar, liquorice and coffee. Definitely doesnt taste as strong as 10% ABV. Medium body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Reminds me of Hopblack! by Dugges.

Werckmeister (2504) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 24, 2016
0,33l bottle at home. no BB date found. black color, small dark-coffee colored head. smells malty roast, earthy, licorice, some wood, creamy, very light grass notes. nice smell, not much black ipa though. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of cocoa, licorice, some roast, spices, earthy notes, very light citric, coffee, bitter chocolate. finishes dry, roasted and ligthly bitter with earthy notes and some licorice. good stuff, light notes from oxidation (but not in a bad way), not much hops on this one. overall very good. oxidation gets more apparent (and a bit more annyoing) once warmed up (-0.1)

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 22, 2016
Der malzige Beginn ist von frischen Hopfenaromen durchzogen. Etwas herb, angedeutet alkoholisch, dann aber doch harmonisch mit verspielter Se und Noten von Kaffe und Vanille mit grasigem Hintergrund. Weich, vollmundig, wahrscheinlich erheblich besser ausbalanciert, stnde es nicht seit 2 Jahren in meinem Keller. Gut! 10/11/8/11/10/11

Vladivostok (461) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2016
On tap at The Singer pub in London. It was my daughters round and I asked her for something dark. This is what she got me; didnt realise it would be 10% though... In fairness, although it was clearly high in alcohol it really didnt taste anything like 10%. Dark and likable enough, I did however fail to notice a huge aroma or much in the way of distinctive flavours. Dont get me wrong, I mean its a good beer but does it really merit 99/100?!
