Hop forward for a stout. Just like the regular yeti on the nose but adds a nice background chocolate note to the yeti goodness. The chocolate is there but definitely not upfront. Favorite part of this for me was the creamy smooth mouthfeel. A nice subtle variation of a stellar stout. If your looking for a desert beer this isn't it since the hops dominate the sweetness but a great offering nonetheless.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a head of foamy brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was dark chocolate and chocolate. The smooth mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet roasted malt burnt malt chocolate brown malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

On tap at Great Divide and then a bomber in Japan. Pitch black with a beige head. Soft cacao, umami and oak - enticing. The taste is dark bitter chocolate, smoke, oak and savoury goodness. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on March 17th, 2016.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a dark brown color almost black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated nicely semi-thin film of lacing running sporadic all around the glass.
The smell had milk chocolate bouncing with a oaky/woody dryness all around it. Subtle vanilla slides in underneath. As it warms, some super light cayenne pepper does make a light presence.
The taste was dry and milk chocolate sweet. Lingering sweet cocoa to heat-like aftertaste, nice. Spicy cayenne in the finish.
On the body, this one sat about a medium on the body. Heat definitely helps it have a great sipping quality about it. Carbonation feels light enough to allow the heat and pepper become a bit drying with a decent stickiness about it.
Overall, wonderful imperial stout that I would definitely have again.

Draft 10 oz pour at the Beer Junction for their chocolate beer week. Pours a jet black with a consistent tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate aroma, but a bit watery. Chocolate forward flavor, with a dominated roasted background. Very woody, and coffee throughout. Slight smoke in the finish. Overall a fun, tasty beer.
