Deep dark and intoxicating aromas of coffee and leather. A really dark pour. There is an explosion on the palate as this big stout odes over the tastebuds. Starts out with coffee and burnt malt followed by tobacco and earth. I have not had a better unoaked stout to date

Delicious stuff; one of my favorite non-barrel aged imperial stouts; right there with Speedway, and maybe even a notch over it. Huge roasted malts, and bitterness, with a delicious creamy mouthfeel that doesnít get too crazy. Oak comes forth well, and the roasted malts shine through without any rustiness or cloyingness. Surprisingly drinkable and overall delicious.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours motor pull black with toffee colored head. Aroma of intense coffee and a bit of chocolate. Taste of the aforementioned aroma with a bit of a boozy undertone.

Vintage cellared since September 2012. Poured into a tulip glass, pours thick, syrupy and black. Aroma of wood, coffee and malt. Taste is nice, mellow. Oak comes through with cocoa, spicy malt and finishes with some sweetness. Great, thick mouthfeel. Great beer.

22 oz for 10 bucks. Pours jet black with a huge chocolate-colored head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, some oak and a little roasted malt. A little piney hop as well. Aroma is a heavy dose of chocolate with some vanilla flavor up front and only a little lasting bitterness. Much less bitter and hoppy than the regular Yeti. Body is full and thick. When I was pouring it, it looked like motor oil. Overall I think I prefer this one over the regular Yeti. The flavors are a little more robust and itís not as bitter on the back end.
