Central Mkt. $7.49 22oz. Lots of dark chocolate and coffee bittered to perfection. Quick, fresh palate for such a dense brew. I like that itís a bit thin. Alcohol is well hidden. A full meal deal.

"Not sure i can tell the difference between this and the stright yeti. Not much oak flavor or aroma. Apearence was awsome, dark pour with a dark brown head. which laced great. Good solid beer."

Expensive but well worth it. Black with a smaller khaki head. Aroma was rubust with licorice, dark chocolate, toasted nuts and a kicking oak. Flavour lives up to the nose, rich, silky with a nice creamy texture dried out nicely with the oak flavouring. A great one for sure.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a jet black thick color with a small amount of tan head. Aroma is sweet, molases, bitter dark chocolate, and oak. Flavor is chocolatey, bitter dry roasted nuts, oaky-earthy flavors, and alcohol warmth. Overall, very good warming imp stout. Perfect for a night during a noríeaster when snow is piling outside like crazy and thus, you have no where to go tomorrow.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A brutal monster of an imperial stout. Not a beer to be approached lightly. Black with a firm, lacing head. Reeks of oak, burnt toast, licorice and Christmasy dried fruits. Perfect creamy mouthfeel. Big enough in the frame to carry these huge flavours. Quite ascerbic on the tongue. Piney hops, wood, toffee - a classic American mix. Stunningly good. (Bottle, Duff homecoming gathering)

Now this is some damn fine beer. Everything about this is big. Aroma of coffee, molasses, toffee, figs, oak and some vanilla. Flavors were pretty much the same although I didnít get much of the oak that was supposed to be there from the barrels. It didnít matter because everything was done to a high quality that made me want more and more. Very tasty.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 Gosh darn nice beer. Pours jet black and a thin brown head doesnít appear until youíre done. I smell coffee, chocolate, and burning wood. Has a nice fireplace kind of aroma. Bit thinner than I was expecting. Silky smooth going down, very hoppy and gets more aromatic as you drink it. Iíd definitely buy this again. Probably a top 10 beer for me.

Right off I notices itís obvious thickness...coats the side of the glass with a viscous layer. Small brown head on a black as night pour...substantial, NO light gets through it. Aroma is a nice caramel. The taste has hints of chocolate and great big coffee aftertaste.
Palate is incredibly thick....it has the consistency of glue on your tongue.
