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.

Koelschtrinker (18731) - 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

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?!

Shanshirohop (86) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2016
Toda una experiencia en un porcentaje 80/20 blend, tanto visualmente como en aroma y gusto. Eso s, slo aconsejable para cerveceros experimentados capares de digerir cervezas muy alcohlicas.

Van de tap @beertemple. Mooi zwart bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aromas van gebrande mout en hop. Smaak is vooral gebrande mout en drop/salmiak. Voor mij een prachtige combi. Heerlijk bier

HuskerTan (1879) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle. A- Spruce, pine, cigar smoke, lactose, dusty. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, beige head. T- Pine, bitter, cream, dry cocoa. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Started with Yang then had this and next Ill have Yin. Maybe not the most logical order for the 3...or is it? Considering this is about 66% Yang and 33% Yin, the balance is still pretty even. It certainly is more IPA than stout but doesnt scream one or the other. Hard to detect and obvious standout flavors.
