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.

As the name implies, it's a lot like yeti, which is a good thing, but with more chocolate, which wasn't really an improvement in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, this is a great beer, but I just think the original Yeti is better.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is a little roasty, alcohol evident in the nose. Jet black, and opaque with nice light brown head that quickly dissipates. Wonderful taste! A touch sweet. Notice the wood aging, but it’s not in your face and is very nicely balanced. I love how all of the flavors combine perfectly. Notice the cayenne in just a touch of heat and tingling in aftertaste. Overall, a terrific imperial stout!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is pleasant from chocolate and vanilla, roasted malts and all the other classic smells you know should be in a good imperial stout. The taste is coffee, burnt malts and a lingering bitterness from the dark chocolate. I could have enjoyed a little more oak notes than I did, and I don’t catch any of the cayenne that is supposedly in this one? But... it is very good stuff, no doubt.

Pours a thinner viscosity, but still very black and plenty of khaki head. Chocolate, oak, and vanilla on the nose; follows onto the palate. A very nice roasted malt note on the finish with the rest of the previously listed notes. Good flavors, but a bit thin.

Pours a dark Brown/black color with minimal lacing and head retention. Smells of chocolate and bourbon. Tastes more like coffee and bourbon. One of the better stoudts I’ve had. This is one to remember.
