My 1500th rating!!! On tap at Coles. Appearance: Jet black oil coloured. Small brown head. Aroma: lots of wood (that’s what she said) coffee, alcohol, toasty with a hint of smoke. Flavour: Wow, super super espresso to start, chocolate and whiskey soon comes through with a huge thump of oak. Lots of smoke/peat and a long malt and dark chocolate finish. Delicious! scottw86 (1177) - Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Poured a black-red with a large dark tan head. Aroma is of chocolate and coffee. Taste is creamy and smooth, not overpowering. Hides the alcohol well and has a good combination of coffee and chocolate malts. Very good. arone12 (930) - Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours a thick, dark black color. Has a light brown head. Smells instantly of coffee, caramel and hops. Tastes of delicious coffee. Has a sweet taste with a slight burnt coffee taste. Bitterness is covered up nicely with sweetness.

On draft at Beer Temple. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of espresso, chocolate, mild fruity yeast, and a bit of booze. More coffee in the mouth, along with caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, and a fair dose of herbal / earthy hops. Medium bodied, which is cut somewhat by a strong coffee-like acidity. Fairly good, but I definitely prefer the straight up oak aged version. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Bomber; jet black with massive chocolate colored head; sweet coffee, chocolate doughnuts and creamy roasted chocolate cake; lovely texture with the smoothness of a brownie sundae; stale roast, coffee and silky smooth; nothing astringent or bitter and a very well made, decadent beer; not too rich either with a nice, ashy finish helping to cover up the sweetness; get lots of chocolate mousse and cream; very nice and I really like all the yetis TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2010

(22oz bottled on Feb 13, 2009) jet black pour, huge deep tan head and excellent lacing. Nose of toffee, espresso, vanilla, wood and caramel. Smells amazing!! Taste of vanilla, chocolate syrup, wood, espresso, and very very light hop presence. Finish is medium thick, long deep creamy coffee duration, the big bubbles make it super creamy. Honestly was expecting a great beer and got one of the best beers I’ve honestly ever had. It’s available on shelves too! What a fantastic impy stout!

This brew pours black with a coffee colored head that quickly fades into nothing like most other imperial stouts. There is very nice lacing and carbonation present as well. The smell is mostly of coffee, which is be expected, with slight hints of chocolate, vanilla, and barley. The first sip blew me away - the complexity of this beer is out of this world and includes notes of oak, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. This version of the Yeti is a champ at hiding the alcohol flavor and warmth.
