Exactly as in the description. Old Rasputin is better. But a solid brew nonetheless.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a thick dark chocolate with brown tan frothy head. Aromas of sweet caramel, toffee, and bitter chocolate. Alcohol is also noticeable on the nose. Toffee flavors come out first with hints of coffee and bakers chocolate. Not much hop bitterness. Warm boozy feeling with too much burn.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours thick and black with half a finger of reddish light brown head. Dense, gutsy aromas, some potate peel, dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Good balance of dark density and freshness on the aroma. The palate is full bodied and powerful. Balanced sweetness, loads of coffee and roasted malts. Good lingering bitterness on the long finish.

Bottle at home. Poured a clear dark brown with red tinge when seen in the light. No head to speak of, but it is dark tan. Smells of coffee and roast. Tastes like coffee with fair sweetness and bitterness. Low on bubbles. Calming and satisfying.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma of cocoa powder, pine tree, coffee, juniper berries. Complex taste which gives a burnt impression while also being sour, bitter and chalky. Distinct chocolate qualities and a woody aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted a 12oz bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego. Tasted from a snifter. Pours a brown so dark that you could probably just round it up to black, with a reddish, dark tan head. You can tell it’s pretty heavy-bodied just by looking at how it coats the side of the glass. Has a huge aroma of chocolate with undercurrents of roasted almonds. Flavors are sweet at first, and rich as hell throughout: dark chocolate, espresso, and molasses mingle with a date-like fruitiness. Big, bold, and very good.

Really good imperial stout. Chocolate hit me first thing in the aroma. Also some citrus hop notes. Very drinkable for the abv. For some reason the taste for me fell off a bit as it warmed up. Wonderful mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasty, malty, dark chocolate bitterness. I have a hard time pulling out the hop bitterness mainly from the dark chocolate malt bitterness I taste. Smooth and alcohol is super well hidden for the ABV on this one. The Oak aged one adds a whole new level of complexity, and my favorite is the espresso oak aged, but original yeti is tried and true. Oh and in case you’re wondering I Believe.

Strong alcoholic taste, no special smell, coffee and chocolate, good bitterness, not that extreme as it’s aged sibling
