4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally rated on 7/29/08. A big beer for sure, like pouring out burnt motor oil, this stuff is black and thick, a thin tan cap with a little carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts, and coffee. Falvors also of roasted malts, coffee, toffee, caramel, oh yeah and coffee. It is sweet at first giving way to hop bitterness. Overall a pretty good brew, worth a try

Coffee, chocolate, hops, lactose on the nose. Big heavy brew. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, with a nice silky but bitter finish. Pretty rockin imperial stout. Paired well with chocolate cake and strawberries.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
En komplex riktigt bra stout. Trots rätt hög ABV märks alkoholen bara av litegrann. Väldigt mörk nästan svart med stort krämigt skum. Choklad, kaffe, rostad malt, lagom sötma och lagom beska. Riktigt bra!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a viscous black body with a medium to large, dense, dark-tanned head. Malts and roasted grains dominate the aroma, there are notes of chocolate, coffee and hints of leather. Taste is also malt driven, moderate to high roasted flavor, coffee, well hidden alcohol and chocolate. Finishes quite bitter, leaving a lingering roasted / coffee flavor. The body is slick and it’s softly carbonated.

Sample @ PGH Beerfest. Pours very dark. Rich and creamy with an aroma of roasted malts, chocolate nd some coffee. Pretty enjoyable for this style.

It’s basically one of the best beers I ever had. A perfect RIS and will stay my reference for this style. Even though quite light with alcohol for this style it hits with smooth, creamy and thick body packed with the best roasted aromas possible : dark chocolate, toffee, molasses. Every sip is a joy. I rarely go like this but some beers deserve it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Pours black with a beautiful dark brown head. A lot of chocolate in the aroma followed by coffee and american hops. Not too sweet and not too bitter, good balance. Subtle roast. Very smooth and velvety, creamy. Low carbonation. Alcohol warms your throat but apart from this it’s unnoticeable. Remarkable stout.

Top of the line Imperial Stout. Great flavor and with a hint of coffee, chocolate etc. - perfect finish too. For a 9.5% ABV this stout is very smooth. It was hard for me to tell the difference between the oatmeal version and the regular Yeti. Both are outstanding and won’t disappoint.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pours a thick brown-black with a brown, chocolatey head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, caramel, and molasses. Taste follows but with the hops making an appearance with citrus notes and pine. Viscous and full-bodied. Bitter finish. Rather intense, but very nice overall.
