4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great stout. Head dissapates quickly, really nice lacing though. Aftertaste is complex mix of caramel, coffee, and chocolate, and last quite long. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth. An exemplary stout a MUST try. The oak aging of the other stout adds a hint of flavor and makes it just a hint better.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pure black color, with 2 finger dark brown head with lacing. Strong chocolate, toffee, and burnt smell. Taste is almost the same with malt and lots of hop taste some alcohol noticed but would not think 9.5%. This is one of my new favorite beers the flavors blend well and is a very well made imperial stout.

12oz bottle. black pour with thin tan head. Huge dark chocolate nose. Perfectly carbonated with the sweet, but not too sweet, chocolate body. 9.5ABV is well hidden. This is a beer worthy of its praise.

[Bottle, February 2007] Deep brown almost black pour with deep brown stagnant head. Chocolate, toffee, and caramel in aroma. Mouthfeel is thick and round - a well balanced beer. Heavy malt flavorings and some chocolate. Good amount of caramel to boot which becomes more apparent in the finish.

Solid IS. Dark, thick pour, little lacey head, and a little too boozy. Chocolate is the big overtone, followed by burnt toast and a not-too-bitter finish.

Pours a nice dark brown/black with a tan head. Let this one warm up a bit before making your final judgement. Nice flavor or coffee and chocolate malts. Not much of an alcohol aftertaste. I want more.

Tra le birre più sopravalutate del pianeta. Una normalissima imperial stout, la cui massiccia diffusione l’ha portata ad avere una certa fama.

Gigantic head tan in color leaving nice lacing. The stout is opaque black. Sweet rich smell of malts and hops. Very straight forward roasty flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. Smooth on the tongue that turns to a nice bitter afterfinish. Nice!

Bottle. Pours a thick pitch black beer with mocca-coloured head. Aroma of roasted malts, hops, caramel. Taste of strong coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, toffee followed by a bitter IPA taste of citrus, orangepeels. Long and nice bitter aftertaste. This beer blew me away.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served into an oversized wine glass.
A: Pours heavy, jet black color no light go through, small brown head with a tiny bubbles lace that paints the side of the glass.
S: As it says in the bottle toffee and caramel it’s present (but for me the caramel its more apparent), got some notes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, malt, wood and some vanilla, overall an smokey smell.
T: Almost the same flavors as you can catch with your nose, feels a little bit dry in the mouth, leaves a coffee bitter aftertaste.
Overall a very complex and delicious beer that I would have again, it’s my third review of great divide Yetis and all of them share the same traits but the coffeness (if you can say that way) it whats differentiates them.
