4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Brought this baby back from my few month stay in Denver....had a bunch of these out there and now its time to review
Appearance: pours out ink black tar in color wiht a slight bloody amber tinge at the rims edge....a beautiful color for a hea....dark maroon in color...1/4 inch head...was hoping for a bit more in size and better retention though...
Smell: oh yea...this is one potent fatherfucker here....dark roasted/singed chocolate coffee purree with bitter sweet hershdeys chocolate to follow it up....spicy malt phenols are takin over the nasal passageway....
Taste: very similar to the smells discription...really smooth rich and bittersweet chocolate upfront....chewy malts....burnt caramel...dashes of well mantained bourbon ....great depth and complexity....now I am tasting roasted chestnuts in the aftertaste....
Notes: man for an imperial stout this is top notch....pretty damn good drinkability too....almost baltic porter tones at times come to mind...very cool....

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks zvikar. Black and opaque. Umami aroma, salty and inky. Soy sauce, mild bitterness in the mouth. Smooth, full-bodied, long, dry finish.

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!

Pours black like oil with the same viscosity, and khaki colored head. Chocolate, roasted malt, a little coffee, and some booze on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with roasted malt and raw cocoa.

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.
