4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at McNellie’s OKC. Pours a dark brown with a foamy brown head that doesn’t last terribly long. Moderate lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee and malt with a bit of fruit. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, plums and raisin. Definitely has a woody character compared to the original Yeti. The fruit and alcohol become more apparent as it warms a bit. Definitely a bit of bitter in this one. Medium mouth that oils the tongue. This is nice, but I personally prefer the original a bit more.

Flaska från systembolaget. Mörbrun nästan svart vätska. Ljusbrunt skum. Doft av fat, sirap, choklad och russin. Smak av mörk choklad, bränt socker och kavring. Härligt rund eftersmak

Peering imperial stout nose, not buttoned down by any stretch but little depth here. Initial taste is easy going. Soft scratchy roastedness. odd itchy rye vibe. Overdrawn, matchstick dryness. Priceless Yeti malt thread, decent enough carbonation. Diverted bitterness, comfortable roast finish. Sticky sweet boiled over drinking choc finish, lightly shuffled bitter linger. Impressive but lacking a gear the others had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a medium sized creamy brown head, with good retention. Aroma of milk chocolate, rye sourdough bread and coffee. Flavours of milk chocolate, rye sourdough bread, coffee, plums and oak wood. Taste is light-medium sweet and light bitter. Palate is full bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall a good Imperial Stout, but the flavours of milk chocolate clash with the harsh rye sourdough bread and plums.

Oak and vanilla aroma and flavor. Though I expected a lot, it didn't seem to live up to everything I thought it would be. Still a solid beer.

Bottle at home. Pours a really dark/black with a nice Carmel color head. Smells are of coffee and chocolate. Taste is mostly the same with some bitter finish. Overall, this is one of my favorite stouts. Perfect for a cold winters day.

It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark roasted malts, some oak and minor chocolate. It had medium carbonation and a big mouthfeel. The taste was of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, dark chocolate, oak, grassy hops, slight carob and some minerals. Very nice.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas are light, but woody and generic stoutiness. Taste brings a touch of vanilla, but the oak is really subtle in this. Sweet taste, low bitterness. Clean finish. Pretty good, but not the best of the bunch.
