Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing nearly black in the glass. Half finger light brown head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of dark dried and fresh fruit, caramel malt, piney hops, light toasted malt. Flavor starts with pine hops, plums and dried fruit, a thint of toasted malt. Finish develops the toasted malt, chocolate, hints of vanilla and a nice hop bite. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Dangerously well covered alcohol. Delicious.

I was excited to see that Evil Twin had bottled a Yin and Yang; I had made and reviewed my own black and tan from 50/50 Yin and Yang a few years ago. Interestingly, my old review indicated that the toasted malt and stout character overwhelmed the barleywine elements in the two-bottle mix. This bottled version seems to have the opposite flavor progression and is much better balanced. I wish I had bought two of these now, although it was pricey.
