330ml brown bottle. Best before 2015. Black, opaque, dense looking body, the head is thick and creamy, it is light brown. big rings of lace are left behind. Nose has thick cocoa and roasty malt. Taste has big roast, liquid dark chocolate, subtle bitterness. Finishes dry, lingering roast. Silky in the mouth, but full bodied, carbonation is light. Big, and very drinkable. An excellent beer for its price.

Bready coffee, very cozy, hint of smoke?, light-med roasted bitterness, very smooth and drinkable.

jgb9348 (5980) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal, alcohol, cereal and a good dose of lactose. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong roasty flavour with a lot of oatmeal and grain noticeable, coupled with some light chocolate, a touch of coffee, earth and a nutty flavour that has some alcohol warmth, but pretty well hidden at 10% abv. Aftertaste shows some chocolate and deep malty flavours and a bit of nuts, but a mellow and uninspired complexity for sure. Overall, a good beer, but not great, nor a must-have, but as an Imperial Stout, if you love the style, then worth trying, otherwise, probably a waste of liver capacity or money, as there are better options. I preferred this one compared to the Yang, in their respective styles. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington, Virginia (20th Street Location) on 12-December-2014 for US$3,89 sampled at home in Washington on 05-February-2017, alongside the Evil Twin Yang in a horizontal tasting.

SebBrews (106) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JAN 26, 2017
Pours black with a small, non-dense tan head. Nose is roasted coffee, cocoa, soy souce, some smoke and alcohol are also there. Taste begins bitter, with notes of coffee liquor-like alcohol, cocoa nibs and smoked wood. It ends with a slightly burnt flavour and a boozy kick. Full bodied, oily, low carbonation. Bitter, malty finish. Very good.

Bottle to tulip - pours spent motor oil, cappuccino head, thin and elusive. Aroma of dark roast coffee, leather, cocoa and vanilla...Perhaps smoke and dark fruit. Medium body and carb. Flavor is coffee, chocolate covered cherry, bittersweet chocolate, cocoa powder and a plum finish. Excellent.

ALIBALI (1279) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2016
Ein sehr feingliedriges und dabei ausgewogenes IS, welches gut seinen ppigen Alkoholgehalt zu verstecken wei. Viel Rstverweise und ein ausgeprgter Hang zum Expresso, inklusive Sure, nennt es sein eigen. Sicherlich kein Stylecrusher, aber durch und durch solide. MIKKELLER BAR Kopenhagen. 0,2/50DKK. Fass.
