Bomber bottle. Pours midnight black with very large tan head and a super oily mouthfeel. Carbonation was light to medium. Nose is chocolate roast, nuts, oak, and strong whiskey. Taste is rich fruit, choc, barrel, and coffee bean. Finish is long lasting and roasted the hell out. Rich and flavorful RIS.
Black pour, fine dark tan head. Lots of wood and bourbon on the nose. More wood on the tongue, char, maple, caramel, vanilla. Very good. Hanuta06 (477) - Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2017

Aromas of dark chocolate, toffee, aged dark malts, wort syrup, coffee rinds, whiskey, rye whiskey, oak, barrel wood, nougat, leather and faint cigar smoke. Pours dark black with aggressive brown foam and lacing. Taste brings the classic Yeti stout flavors with dark chocolate, roasted black malts, syrupy chocolate, raisins, roasted barley, slight figs, chalky cocoa, plums and molasses upfront. Mid palate offers heavily aged dark malts, rye whiskey, whiskey spices, barrel wood, caramel, dark cacao, oak, black licorice and cigar smoke. Finishes smooth and dark with residual chocolate syrup, aged dark malts, whiskey barrel, oak and subtle vanilla. Overall, this is a fantastic blend of whiskey barrel and stout. The Yeti's original flavors are there alongside pleasantly aged malts and whiskey notes. Extremely decadent. MrTipple (6000) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Sweet bourbon, dark, toasted malts, dark molasses, coffee and chocolate, harsh cacao. Hazy, very dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light sweet and bitter. Bitter, dark roast cacao, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, soft carbonation, full bodied. Nice Impy, quite punch, complex and intense, lacks balance. Keg at brewery barrel warehouse, Denver.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2017 Black with a dark beige head. Powerful dark malts, chocolate, whiskey, licorice, burnt malt. Slick and thick. Bold throughout. Very well done.

Heavy flavor is more elusive in this version like, well, bigfoot... Whiskey overrides lots of subtlety. Roast and vamilla here, some dark chocolate. Black pour with good head and lacing. Bitter finish with booze. Tap at Barrel tap room. AndySnow (8013) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2017

Flaska från amerikansk vän. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Tung söt doft av choklad, kola och fat. Kaffe, whiskey och choklad i smaken. FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2017
750ml bottle (RBESG2017 Grand Tasting) (6:4:7:4:14=3.5)Marduk (8219) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 17, 2017
Kinda boosty aroma, rich full roast, and sweetish whiskey aspects, vanilla. Even more vanilla in the taste, sweet and roasty. Pretty mellow, full palate, and pleasant carbonation, but there’s no hiding the heat, alas.
750ml bottle (RBESG Grand Tasting 2017) as 10.4% abv. Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Roast, caramel, woody, cask, oak, rum in aroma. Roast, dark chocolate, caramel, woody, vanilla in taste. Dark chocolate, vanilla and roast in aftertaste. Pleasant mouthfeel. Alcohol is hidden. Really opens up as it warms. Very solid brew.
