Step 1 in my Yeti vertical tasting. Bottles 10/3/2011... Pours jet black capped by a silky tan head with great retention. Nose of chocolate and patent malt. Bitterness is solid though as suspected the hop favors and aroma have vanished with age with a quick nod to pine. Body is smooth but bit a burly.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.355 l bottle from ’Bottle Shop Eindhoven’, bottled in February 2016. Pitch black with a medium large, very creamy, stable, dark brown head. Sweetish-malty, roasty and a little fruity aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, some tropical fruits and a bit of pine. Sweet, malty, rather roasty and also quite fruity taste of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, licorice, praline, tropical fruits and a bit of pine, followed by a rather long, roasty-bitter, slightly resiny finish. Full body, very creamy and sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great intensity, unexpectedly hoppy, superb mouthfeel. Really good!

I bought this bottle in the drink of the world, Lucene. I drank it relax in Bonfol. The body is perfect, strong dark body and consistent brown foam. The taste is good, roasted malt, coffee, hop and coffee and bitterness staying in the throat. It is a powerful beer, there is a side of licor, lack of vanilla but it is a good one!!!!!

On tap. I’ve heard all the rumors, so it was time to try the real thing. Right away I was blown away by the mouthfeel -- it’s slick, smooth, and full. However, there was a tangy, fruity taste that seemed out of place. The more I drank, the more I honed in what the off-flavor was: cherry cough syrup. There was a distinct tart cherry flavor that, when it was combined with the booze, just made the whole thing taste like Robitussin. Promising beer, but held back by that off flavor.

Quite huge brew. Mild cocoa, coffee, coffee beans on nose, more distinct in taste, decent roasted malt profile, coffee again, somewhat bit harsh, but very well balanced. Quite awesome

Bottle from beer club. Wow, tons of espresso aroma and taste along with roasted malts and smoke. Poured dark black with medium dark brown head. A little heavy on the IBUs for me, but not bad.

Can from The Beerhive. Black body with a medium head. Good lacing. Aroma of espresso, hazelnut and Marmite. Flavour of rust, coffee, chocolate and cocoa powder. Medium to full body with a gloopy, chewy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Quite bitter for an Imperial IPA. A quality beer.
