4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 it’s price.
Tastes like an overburnt baltic porter, but absolutely not like a proper imperial stout. Very bitter, ashy, though. A fruity sweet note for a little balance. Not any special:( RoJo28 (87) - - OCT 20, 2017
Been there, Done that. Exceptionally glad to be doing it again. Like a Seinfeld marathon; Familiar yet sensational.

Opaque black color as usual with a creamy slow settling head of light brown foam. Has a complex aroma and flavor profile. There is smoke, raw cocoa, some iced black coffee, and dark berries in the mimimum. A bold stout that I look forward to mixing with its counterpart Yang.

Deep copper, fine bubbles, towering and persistent head.
Full body, dense flavor, abundant carbonation, silky and hot mouthfeel, long aftertaste.
Intensely bitter dominating the moderately sweet background, dry finish.
Dark roast flavors, coffee, coffee, coffee.
Powerful, wakes you up before it puts you to sleep.

Pours a black color. Whoa. About one finger brown head. Good lacing.

Aroma is lots of dark berries. Light chocolate, medium coffee. Dark fruit. Dark roasted malt.
Taste is berries, lots of dark fruit. Licorice. Light chocolate, medium coffee. Toffee. Pretty bitter, and strong.
Mouthfeel is full, very heavy. Alcohol is hard to detect. Bitter, but smooth.
Overall, it's big, but it's good. I'd drink it again, I'd buy it again.
Pours near black with a moderate tan head. the nose is surprisingly low on chocolate or coffee roast notes and is mostly modest hops and a touch of dark fruit and caramel. Mouth feel is surprisingly thin for the style with a blend of coffee, plums, dark chocolate, bittering hops, and a little alcohol forming the flavor. Finish is quick and slightly sticky. A good beer but honestly not as good as I had hoped for wekker84 (2390) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2017

12 oz can from the Yin and Yang four pack at Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. a beautiful, complex and sublime beer made all the better for the concept of Taiji which warmed my heart. Served by itself without mixing for a yin and yang. Thank you Evil Twin Brewing. ThreeCats (1002) - ISRAEL - JUL 8, 2017
Black with a big dark mocha head. Aroma has lots of coffee, chocolate, and sweet dark caramel. Taste vey roasty, dark chocolate, espresso, caulk, full but nor sweet, with some warming alcohol down the throat, but not much. Very nice RIS Ritzn (1808) - GERMANY - JUN 11, 2017
Black with medium brown head. Aroma is vanilla coffee chocolate cocoa slight fish. Taste is bitter roast malt coffee and only a hint of sweet vanilla. Long bitter finish of coffee. Oily and rather harsh. Still good.
