3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours solid black with a two finger dark tan head that looks loosely bubbled from the side but very thick from the top. Taste of the foam is strong with roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth with a lingering pleasant bitter aftertaste. Main tasting notes are caramel, burnt marshmallow and hints of coffee.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottled on 11/8/2012 - It’s oily, deep and dark, with dark tan foam, about an inch and a half. Aroma is slightly of soy, molasses, chocolate, slight booze. It’s sweet, chocolatey, tastes of dark coffee, mildly boozy, with a slightly powdery bittersweet finish. I took a gamble buying a two year old bottle, wasn’t sure how any temp fluctuation could effect it. It’s more creamy than slick, with silky carbonation. The store’s got about a half dozen left on the shelf :)

Yeti aged 3 years! Great aroma of chocolate and malt. So smooth and a little hop kick on the first taste. Really, really great stout, I recommend aging it, for sure!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£6.60):
Another week, another excellent American brewed imperial stout. This one is like Larry Holmes trying to follow Muhammed Ali, while this one is very good in its own right it has a ridiculously hard act to follow in the shape of last weeks Bourbon County Stout. Despite this one not being quite in the same league as the bottle of Bourbon County that I tried last week this one is still an excellent beer & one that I’d consider picking up again were it a little more reasonably priced. The taste was definitely a good one, perhaps a little heavy on the alcohol with this one surprisingly seeming stronger than the 15% Bourbon County. I enjoyed this one & I’m anxious to get my hands on a bottle of the Oak Aged version at some point to see how it compares to this one

Bottle to stout glass. This pours completely black with a one finger brown head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, and hops. The taste is chocolate, coffee, malt, roast, some toffee, and a decent amount of hops. The finish is thick and oily. Such a good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black as night, virtually no head or lacing. Smells of molasses. Tastes of heavily roasted malt and coffee with molasses. Quite a fine Imperial Stout.
