This was a great beer, with a strong hops profile. Definitely one of the better stouts with coffee/espresso. It came on strong with the coffee and in the aftertaste there was a distinct hint of vanilla. It had an excellent color profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy markwise. Thick yummy black pour with huge creamy head and tons of thick lacing. Nose is earthy grass with some hops and very bitter coffee and roast. Flavor is pretty weak, some dry earthy bitter coffee and herbal notes. The coffee is yuck. Dry, balanced, I guess, but not that good. Haver’d the hell out of this.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head, lots of lace. Aroma of coffee, mocha, chocolate, bitter malt. Taste is also heavy with mocha/coffee, chocolate, bitter coffee and malt, light fruit. Finish is bitter. Mouth is full. Overall, a very enjoyable brew. Good for sipping.

Big thanks to Kinz for bringing this beauty. Dark black body with an ivory head. Slight astringent aroma, coffee, toffee, and espresso (big surprise) accents in the aroma. Great taste, espresso based with some additional grain and dark fruit accents. Smooth ending, mostly dark chocolate.

(sampled at the alesmith ba decadence release.black body with a thick mocha like black head that leaves nice webbing on the glass.the aroma is identical to a nice mocha cappuccino.unfortunately this is where the beers good characteristics stop.the flavor has a funky "burnt" coffee flavor to it that dominates the rest of the beers good qualities.damn shame to cuz this could of been something great.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz pry-top brown glass. Bottled Feb. 13 2009.
Appearance: Deep black with brown around the edges, light tan head, leaving sparse spotting.
Nose: Lots of bitter espresso notes, vanilla way out when you really breathe in. Smells like a coffee shop that roasts their own, or maybe the coffee isle in a grocery store.
Palate: Medium- to full-bodied. Lots and lots of dark roast coffee grounds up front, in the middle and on the finish. There’s some mild tempering from the oak, a little vanilla, dried creamer feel in the middle. Some earthy, dried leaves notes on the finish, and some green coffee bean flavors, too.
Notes: Gotta say, I prefer the Oaked Yeti to all the Yeti’s so far. This is a little too coffee ground tasting/feeling, a little too bitter (from the coffee), and a little too simple. Texture and flavors a little overdone.

Beautiful thick tan head that seemed to stick around forever. Amazing balance of oak, choc and espresso none overpowered the other. Somewhat high abv but couldnt even notice it. Excellent and would recommend to anyone. Thanks to Steve for making me drink this at WOB.
