3.88/5  rDev -3.7%

A - Black-dark brown, when held up to light there is a nice ruby-garnet hue, two fingers beige head, great lacing.

S - Confectioner's sugar, toffee, pine, grapfruit, hint of Tootsie Roll.

T - Sweet malt, residual sugars, mixture of juicy/bitter hops, touch of cocoa powder on the back end.

M - Quite smooth, medium body, moderate-low carbonation.

O - A lot sweeter than expected, doesn't reach the cloying point, but gets fairly close. Don't get much of the Yin imperial stout. I would prefer a 75% Yin, 25% Yang blend.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (semi-proper!). Poured a massively dark red brown with a one finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, dark chocolate, subtle coffee, dark fruit, subtle citrus, subtle citrus hop, alcohol, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, earth, earth hop, citrus, citrus hop, and alcohol. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I have had a few Black & Tan brews back before I was reviewing beers and I can honestly say that this is one of the better ones I’ve had. If I am honest the stout portion of this brew definitely dominated this one with all the roastiness and alcohol notes. The ‘tan’ portion did make itself known throughout though with a nice kiss of citrus to help balance it out. I could honestly see this one getting you in quite a bit of trouble if you are not careful. Definitely a better representation of the style and definitely better than the make-shift one a few of us in my tasting group made. Worth your time trying if you get the chance.
