Live tasting, bottle into tulip...

Appearance; pours black, with a finger of lush brown head, retention is good and lacing hangs around for a bit, sticking to one spot in particular but is nothing spectacular... When held to light, beer appears opaque at the heart, with root beer colored edges...

Smell; smokey, roasty malts, hints of char and burned toast...

Taste; quite similar to the smell, smokey but not overly so, roasty malts, burned toast, hints of dark roasted coffee

Mouthfeel; Yin poured quite a bit thinner than I expected it to, with a good amount of carbonation for the style (although I'm not certain that I know what Taiji means, and I'm too lazy to look it up) it feels thin in the mouth, but seems to coat it fairly well given the long smooth finish...

Overall; this is a solid beer if a little one dimensional and that's where Yin loses points with me... I would like a little more going on in the flavor department and I know the potential is definitely there. Additionally, it wasn't quite as thick or full bodied as I had hoped and anticipated, hence the points loss in the mouthfeel department... I would certainly not mind checking out other vintages of this brew and definitely will keep my eyes on where Evil Twin is headed... I also would like to note that Yin is part of a Black and Tan, which I generally don't drink but would try sometime if I could find both Yin and Yang...
