Tasted on 1/30/14 from a foiled and capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil quite a while ago. Pours completely opaque oily black with a thick brown head that slowly recedes to average, rocky lace. The nose is dark chocolate fudge brownie with milky chocolate syrup, a touch of vanilla, and of course, a ton of bitter dark espresso. The flavor is quite a bit more dry and bitter, really focused on the espresso, with dry dark chocolate, and a chocolate brownie flavored malt and just a hint of vanilla. The body is full with fairly light but still somewhat stinging carbonation and a long dark chocolate brownie and bitter espresso finish.

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.

Bottle split a few ways. Pitch black pour with an espresso coloured head. Notes of heavy roast, bitter coffee, some dark dried fruits, figs, caramel and some sweet vanilla.

One of my absolute favorites! A beautiful balance of coffee and sweetness that makes this a top 5 for me.

Vestergaard (1385) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2016
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. Doesnít have the fruity coffee or the coffee acidity, which i miss a bit. Probably passed itís prime this one. Still good though. Average carbonation, full body.

Bottle. Black with one finger head. This bottle is from 2010, and it has held up wonderfully. Dark chocolate and bitter, dry coffee. Light oak. Very smooth, not even the hint of booze. The age has really done this one well.
