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.

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 (2946) - 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. Lovely! oobawa (1401) - Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2017
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 (1645) - Orsenigo, ITALY - APR 4, 2017

Pours deep brown with a large soft tan head. Aroma is somewhat citrusy with dark chocolate. Definitely more citrusy than chocolate. Flavor is dark chocolate, bitter citrus peel, peat, perhaps a bit of pine. Tasty! BeerWarden31 (2) - RUSSIA - FEB 24, 2017 does not count
Хорошее, интерес& пиво. И еще раз что бы было 75 символо& Хорошее, интерес& пиво. Rei00 (129) - CHILE - FEB 23, 2017
Una Black IPA de color café oscuro y baja carbonatacion y espuma. Su aroma es a café con toques frutales de Damasco y durazno. Su sabor es cremoso, donde reinan en una mezcla precisa un suave, pero persistente sabor a café con el típico amargor de la IPA con sus toques frutales a durazno, hierbas y un suave dulzor a miel.

Bottles. Home blend with recommended percentages. Dark brown color with ruby highlights near the edge. light carbonation. tan head. Chocolatey aroma, some spice and herbs from the hops. Flavor is still fairly roasty but not overly so. Spice from the hops, restrained bitterness through the finish. Not bad! Tayeth (650) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2017
Sehr angenehmes röstiges Aroma mit Anklängen von Rosinen, Likör und Rumtopf. Geschmack leider sehr alkoholisch, aber ansonsten schön rund mit Karamell, Rosinen und Schokolade. Gut geeignet als Dessert-Bier.
