3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is interesting - more smoky than most Imperial Stouts. I like it, but it’s just different. The best way I can describe this aroma is opening up the grill when you’re cooking a good steak. In fact, I think I just found a food pairing for this beer. For some reason, it smells like red meat to me, but I like red meat so that’s ok. Black as night with a small tan head. A little more carbonated than most great stouts I have had - that’s what takes the appearance from a 5 to a 4. I’m picky. Taste is smoky, hoppy for an IS, roasty and has a mild cocoa flavor. Better with each sip, but a bit overwhelming at first. Palate is a bit watery for the size of this beer. More like a Black IPA than a stout. Good, but Yang and the Yin & Yang mixture were both better.
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 (900) - ISRAEL - JUL 8, 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. dzudohonor (167) - POLAND - JUN 2, 2017

12 ounce can. Opaque black color topped by a moderate frothy tan head. Mild roasted malt nose hints at charcoal and espresso. Rich, creamy roasted malt flavor. Bittersweet chocolate, espresso and resiny hops. Smooth and drinkable, though warming alcohol comes through in finish. beton (618) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAY 19, 2017
