TASTING NOTES: Pours black with a VERY thick tan head and superb retention. Serious lacing the entire time I am enjoying this beer. Aroma is smokey, woody, with a lactic note. Mouthfeel is rich, creamy, and a little sticky. Roasty flavors with licorice, chocolate, and a fair amount of bittering on the finish. This is a thick, chewy, hearty, chocolatey, roasted stout. A truly wonderful brew! Tasted @ 60F from the bottle.
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION: This is one half of a Black & Tan. Not just any Black & Tan, but one where a toasted smug and hoppy fella get together to make a sublime Taiji balance. Mix the Yin & Yang together, or enjoy this profoundly evil Imperial Stout solo.
