4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I saved this bottle for several months to share with my brother for when he came into town. I must say that it lived up to my lofty expectations. Pours very black with an almost reddish looking, dark tan full head. Aroma is robust and impressive. It contains plenty of chocolate to go along with oak, licorice, vanilla, and coffee. The taste is very rich chocolate, and lots of it. Perhaps like chocolate cake, however with some coffee and vanilla mixed in. Despite how much chocolate is in here, somehow this really isn’t sweet. And that might be the best part of all with this one. Bitter, especially at the end. Full bodied, as one would expect, with an oily texture. Subtle, yet noticeable carbonation. Alcohol content hides itself well. This certainly doesn’t feel like its as strong as it is. Altogether, this has just about everything that you could hope for in a big beer. Being tasty, well made in every respect, potent without hitting hard, you will really impress most everyone by pouring one of these.

Bottle at BrewDog, pours pitch black, funky coffee, caramel liquorice nose. Creamy mouthfeel, slight rubber taste, coffee roast malt, caramel, sweet then slight bitter finish. Nice but expected more, little thin.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of high quality espresso, oak, vanilla, booze, roast and some lactose sweetness. Appearance is a 5; all Yetis are a 5 with their dense black coloring and brown head of foam. Taste is more of the milk sugar from the aroma, a good amount of espresso but not bitter or overwhelming, oak and vanilla. Very smooth and only has a hint of hop bitterness at the very end. Great aftertaste, very drinkable. Good palate, a little on the thin side for a big Imperial Stout. This may be the best Yeti I have rated yet.

Roasted coffee beans; cacao beans to the nose. Beige head. Absolutely black. The beer is thick and falls with heavy viscosity. Malty, bitter coffee after-taste.

Bottle. Nose is super rich dark coffee, almost smells bitter. Pitch black with medium colored brown head. Very large in size. Taste is super dark chocolate, bitter, almost ashy. Interesting. A bit over the top and bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Exp. march 1st, 2016. Pours a lovely pitch black with a small, dense, tan head. Aroma has lots of coffee, roasted malts, dark dark chocolate, tobacco, lots of maltiness. Taste is rather sweet, but all the dark, roasty notes balances it out. Lightly ashy, but without being too bitter. Doesn’t have the fruity coffee or the coffee acidity, which i miss a bit. Probably passed it’s prime this one. Still good though. Average carbonation, full body.
