Mix of Evil Twin Yin and Evil Twin Yang. One long lasting explosion of fruits, molasses, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Really the best of both worlds. IPA kicks in first, then the Stout takes over, finishing in a mixture of both with quite some bitterness but also sweetness.
Next up are the seperate Yin and Yang. It's going to be a good evening.

355ml bottle pours almost black in color with a 2 finger beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and light roasted grains with some chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain, coffee and citrus hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a satisfying blend of 2 great beer styles that works well together. bbllmm (56) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 8, 2016
Draft at Cask, Pimlico. Pours pitch black with beije foam. Expresso nose. Mouth has expresso and cocoa. It misses some depth with no fruit but it has a pleasant maltness. BeergeekKorea (107) - SOUTH KOREA - MAR 4, 2016

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.

Bottle. Black body with a medium beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, honey, plastic and chocolate. Flavour of tar, liquorice and coffee. Definitely doesn’t taste as strong as 10% ABV. Medium body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Reminds me of Hopblack! by Dugges. Werckmeister (3126) - 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) craftbeersweden (667) - SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2016
Beautiful pitch black beer with a one finger high, beige head.
Koelschtrinker (20229) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 22, 2016
This is awesome! Soft, tasty beer. Pine, grapefruit, roasted malt, chocolate, grass and licorice.
Der malzige Beginn ist von frischen Hopfenaromen durchzogen. Etwas herb, angedeutet alkoholisch, dann aber doch harmonisch mit verspielter Süße und Noten von Kaffe und Vanille mit grasigem Hintergrund. Weich, vollmundig, wahrscheinlich erheblich besser ausbalanciert, stünde es nicht seit 2 Jahren in meinem Keller. Gut! 10/11/8/11/10/11
Vladivostok (483) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2016
On tap at The Singer pub in London. It was my daughter’s round and I asked her for something dark. This is what she got me; didn’t realise it would be 10% though... In fairness, although it was clearly high in alcohol it really didn’t 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. Don’t get me wrong, I mean it’s a good beer but does it really merit 99/100?!
