3.76/5  rDev -6.5%

Appearance: Pours with a finger and a half of slightly off white head which settled in slowly to the edges of the glass. Poured with a dark brown color but sits in the glass. Active carbonation is very low.

Smell: Booze, toffee, and black licorice on the front. Milk chocolate, lightly roasted coffee grounds, and some bright hops make up the body. Caramel malts and saturated citrus really carry through on the back end. Interesting transitions from the imperial stout to the DIPA.

Taste: Wow all sorts of things going on here. Medium bodied roasted malts, toffee, licorice, and brown sugar sweetness blast the drinker. The malts take a slightly darker turn with heavier coffee and burnt notes on the body. But then the IPA comes in, delivering heavy caramel malts and saturated citrus notes. Lingering bitterness and licorice sweetness lingers on the finish.

Mouthfeel: I'll give this blended beer credit, you can certainly distinguish the separate beers here. Roasted stout front yields to a malt forward DIPA finish.

Overall: Well, I'm glad I gave this style a go. I would like to try a small version, maybe giving me a different experience. Interesting to say the least.

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.
