4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is where sweet chocolate maltiness meets piney hops. Deep brown in color with a bit of soft sudsy white head. Really well balanced flavor, starting stout-like with those chocolate notes and finishing with a lingering hoppy pine character. Quite soft on the tongue. Fantastic.
11.2floz bottle, no freshness date, bought on sale for $4, tulip glass. Its a dark brown ale with sediment, and a thin layer of head. The molasses and licorice aromas also dominate as flavors. Sweet, mildly roasted and bitter taste attributes wash through on a slick feeling body. Although this beer is alright, it just doesn't do a whole lot for me. gurussi (25) - Curitiba, BRAZIL - OCT 29, 2017
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.

This is as vicious as a black and tan can get. opaque dark, DARK brown color with a khaki head of pillowy foam. big caramel base with a perfect collusion of good and evil; the aggressive pine and candied grapefruit clash with the motor oil consistency of the smokey and roasty boldness in the stout. Truly equilibrium. Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2017
Drank from a blank can labelled Evil Twin Yang Imperial IPA labeled with tape... Says batch #001 on bottom. but due to pouring black and definitely tasting like a black IPA, I can only assume this is Yin & Yang? Bought from a very well stocked beer store/restaurant in Pennsylvania. Pours very thick like a soy sauce. Very rich whisky and woody flavour, roast malts abound. Prounounced piney hop bitterness in the end, unique and fun way to make a double black IPA. jnitka (101) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Color is deep brown to black. Head is off-white, slightly frothy. Nose is dark bread, caramel, toastiness, cacao, grapefruit, hops. Taste is toasty and chocolaty at first with some licorice but hoppy and bitter in the finish with hints of grapefruit peel. Body is extremely smooth and oily with well-hidden alcohol and soft carbonation.

This a DIY version, using the two cans to make a black and tan. It may have slightly more Yang (IPA) than Yin (Stout).
I tried to do the layering with the spoon but I don’t have the right type of spoon so it never works out well. Blended, it is a dark, dark brown, nearly black.
Aroma isn’t that strong, but
Taste is chalky mocha coffee with a lovely piney finish on top. It is malt-forward but also not devoid of hop. The malts are burnt cookies. The malt comes out strong at the top, but later on, the hops take over, coating the palate with a very strong woody finish.
The feel is kind of sandpapery, smooth but also with a gritty texture. It’s really a kind of wonderful beer, balancing the sweets and the bitters of both beers really well. It’s an incredibly difficult dance but Yin/Yang does it right. Grumbo (4264) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
At Dan’s. Now Yin in its own right was great, but possibly a little too carbonated. Yang also great, possibly a little too sweet maybe. But Yin and Yang at one third / two thirds has created something even more special and the combination works so well. Deliciously smooth, with softer carbonation, and balanced sweetness.

Oneness from duality. Giant hop monster makes sweet love to a delicious impy stout. Serenity in a pint glass. Good beer, in other words. Beautiful pour, dark and mysterious with a mighty head and voluminous lace. Aroma leans mostly stout, chocolate and coffee backed by light pine. Taste starts with a bold mocha sweetness, milk chocolate and espresso, with a growing bitter streak laced with pecan and pine and orange. Anise and raisin on the finish. No alcohol present despite the 10% ABV. Wonderful brew. Can’t wait to try to the individual parts. Sissio (1785) - Orsenigo, ITALY - APR 4, 2017
