3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out thick, blackest black, one-finger, creamy brown head, oily lacing, from the bomber courtesy of mixmasterob (thanks, Robert!): Nose of light, bittersweet cocoa powder, green peppers, cayenne, an oaky vanilla presence, and solid roast. Flavors of pieces of warm chocolate, slowly melted by a continuous underlay of alcohol brought on by the oak, and a kicked up heat of cayenne into and throughout the finish. Full-bodied, prickly carbonation. Drinkability: Sweet turns roasty and bitter, with added elements of spice to kick the palate in high gear - and dare I say, extremely memorable. Pairing: Dark cocoa chili habanero chicken. Rebuy: Yes. #469 on 28062010, DG.

Is every yeti a 100? Just asking, had this on tap at the bocktown, nice place, rude beer this is. Some choco aroma on this one. Nice, attractive rolling pour on this baby. Taste of whisky laced choco thing. Strong and difficult. High alky beer. What else can be said? Accolades for the choco keeping this out of the basement.

Pours a very dark brown with a dark brown head leaving heavy lacing. oak aging is in the nose of this beer, with notes of chocolate. Very mild chocolate flavor with strong oak aging, slight astringent coffee flavor with a bit of alcohol at the end.

Great looking beer. Very deep, brown appearance with frothy, chocolate head. Aroma is chocolate and oak, but could be stronger. Taste is lots of chocolate up front, but this beer is more complex than just chocolate. Earthy leather, oak, and booze throughout. Lots of sweet sugar and some vanilla. The carbonation is a bit strong, but overall a really good bear.

On tap at exit 6. Aroma delivers what it promises (oak, chocolate) but it could be stronger. Also I am getting some malt and wheat/grassy/earthy aroma. Looks great. Pitch black with thin brown clingy head. Tastes roasty, hoppy (but not as much as other yetis) with a great oaky chocolatey aftertaste. Palate is thick enough, a little too carbonated. Alcohol is well hidden, overall very well crafted.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep pitch black coloured body with a very oily touch on top and a nice large three centimetre tall rich brown head. Aroma of rich chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, oak, prunes, raisins, alcohol and quite a bit more chocolate. Very full-bodied; Super strong chocolate, alcohol and roasted malt notes throughout with some vanilla, oak, raisins and earthiness noticeable. Aftertaste shows a little smoke and mushroom flavour with a lot of roasted malt, tons of caramelised sugars and a good oak and earthiness. Overall, a very nice imperial stout with a lot of chocolate flavours and a very nice yet somewhat subtle oakiness that makes the flavour a bit dry. A great deal of complexity and of course, a lot of alcohol throughout. I sampled this 65 cL bottle direct from the source at the brewpub in Denver, Colorado on 07-June-2014 sampled after hockey on 09-July-2014.

Loads of vanilla, coffee, chocolate and malt on the nose. The palate follows through with the same except there is a lot of bitterness. I would have rated it higher if it had just a bit more sweetness. Good beer.

22 oz bottle. Iíve had this at the brewery multiple times, but Iím finally sitting down this evening to reflect on this great beer that Iíve admittedly overlooked at times.
Pours a dense black with one inch of lasting tan head that settles to an uneven wisp and uneven lacing. Light only barely passes on the edge of the glass, with a slight hint of ruby hues displayed. Aroma is chocolate malt, slight oak and vanilla, and a hint of cayenne heat. Flavor is roasted malt, spicy notes (spicier than I remember it being!), oak complexity, and a sweet chocolaty finish. Alcohol is well-masked with the full flavor. Medium to full bodied, with moderate carbonation.
