3.88/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: bottle

3.96/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

On tap at the Avenue Pub. A mixture of Yin and Yang from 2 taps. My wife had a Yin on the side.

A: Black with a nice tan head that whittled away quickly. Not much lacing.

S: What a hybrid of smells. First the hops pop in with an intense grapefruit smell from the Yang, followed by a chocolate and coffee smoothness from the Yin side. Kinda boggled the olfactory.

T: Grapefruity hops override the smoothness of the coffee/chocolate/vanilla stoutness. The strength of this intense brew makes it a real sipper. I got to try a few sips of the Yin on its own and definitely enjoyed the smoothness of it better.

M: Medium to heavy with medium, dry carbonation.

O: More like a black IPA, but so much more intense. I think the blend is too confusing to the taste buds and even the olfactory. I prefer my Yin and Yang in separate glasses.

Serving type: on-tap
