4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
10 oz at the brewery. Super dark pour, basically black. I love that the oatmeal and raisins are not overdone. They just add a nice, round mellowness to the otherwise aggressive notes. Aroma has that roasty espresso with cacao, a little bit of hops and a smooth oaty character with a milky backdrop. Palate is huge. The oatmeal makes this beast silky smooth while leaving an excellent roasted finish in the mouth. I like it more than regular Yeti, but not as much as the near perfect espresso oak Yeti.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty notes and molasses primarily, with subtle licorice and raisin compose the aroma, but rather muted overall. It is brownish black in color, with a tan head that settles into a ring. The taste begins with light sweetness, followed by a light bitterness that builds to medium in the aftertaste. There may be a hint of umami trying to peak through, but not enough to elicit a better rating. The body is medium, texture is sticky, carbonation is average, and finish is bitter. Overall it is enjoyable...if it were half the price. Will not purchase another bottle.

Appearance: A dark black colored beer. A brown head with some lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet dark bread, figs and dates, vanilla chocolate, coffee and orange peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a soft and oily texture. A big body with a good dry finish.
Overall: Can a stout really be much better?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
@Stordirren: mycket stor doft av mörk, bitter choklad. Smaken är stor och kraftig med samtidig så mjuk och len. Tydlig kaffe, choklad, lite vanilj och grädde. Inte så store havretoner som jag hade väntat mig.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 6/25/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, char, toast, raisin, molasses, oats, dark bread, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and moderate hop/raisin notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, char, toast, oats, dark bread, molasses, raisin, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, char, toast, molasses, oats, dark bread, raisin, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic balance, complexity, and robustness of intense dark/roasted malt flavors with moderate raisin and hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and moderately chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding imperial stout as expected. Fantastic complexity and balance of intense dark/roasted malt flavors with moderate raisin/hop presence; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

I’m a barleywine and double ipa lover that’s falling fast in love with imperial stouts. This one is brewed with oatmeal to boot and it’s super smooth goin’ down. Read some of the other reviews for a spin on taste. For me, this is just what the doctor ordered for a cold winter Friday evening in NJ. It’s damn yummy.
