4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle. Another very dark pour, dark brown head. Not quite as strong of an aroma as the regular Yeti, everything was a little more muted, but some slightly woody aroma as it warmed. Not quite as bitter as Yeti, very smooth and very good.
Pours black with thin med brown head. Nose is roasted coffee and oak. Coffee, chocolate and vanilla taste. Lingering bitter finish. Tasted better just above room temperature. Could drink two but not much more.

650 ml bottle, bottled 14.11.2016, shared by Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours a thick black with a light brown head. The aroma is full of roasted malt (toffee, cocoa, nuts, burnt wood) along with oak, prunes, raisin and quite some vanilla. Medium to full creamy body with a low carbonation, a medium sweetness, a light bitterness and some noticeable alcohol - nicely balanced. The flavor is full with loads of roasted malt - toffee, chocolate, hazelnut, burnt wood, licorice - along with wood and vanilla. Different roasted malt flavors which evolve from mildly roasted malt to burnt notes towards the finish. Overall not to sweet and lovely diverse Imperial Stout.

650 ml bottle from Beergium, bottled Nov 14 2016.
Black body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, tobacco, some leather, some smoke, liquorice.
Tastes similar, pretty dry, with more wood.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium roasty, wooden, with coffee, cocoa powder, liquorice, some smoke, slight leather.
Very nice. Greatly balanced, with a great dryness throughout. Well integrated barrel notes, just providing some more dry wooden notes. Not as good as the regular version in my option, but great stuff.

From Sep 2007
Purchased at Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Collins for US$5.99 for the bomber.
It pours a near pitch black, no, it's more of a very very dark brown with a nice creamy tannish head of foam that sticks around for the duration and it has some lacing.
The smell is very woody and malty and fruity. Nice nose.
The taste has big notes of caramel malt and chocolate up front. After a few more sips, I get the Oak in the flavour along with sour cherrries and some very bitter hop, the latter of which, dominates near and through the finish. The body is medium to heavy and the carbo is lightly done. Oh, and the alcohol starts to become more noticeable, especially after the swallow....quite warming.
Well, I've tried this one and the non oaked version and I like the non oaked more. Still, this is a fine sipping IS and I'd buy it on the odd occasion without feeling any regret.

Lucky enough to try this at a bottle share last Sunday. Holy shit this is a revelation. Pours a purely black, jet and opaque with a thick tan head that subsides slowly. The nose is heavy with oak, rich dark chocolate, roasted malts, espresso and big vanilla bean notes. Heavy, viscous and oily body with no carbonation. The aftertaste is bitter from the roast and a coffee flavours lingers on. This is one hell of a beer. Nordcore (1642) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Black with a nice light brown head. Aroma of liquorice, chocolate, wood and some dark fruit sense. Sweet with a nice warm chocolate and licorice end. Daboch (172) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Ładnie prezentujące się piwo, czarne z niezłą pianą. Aromat intensywny głównie palone słody i chmiel, dalej kawa plus gorzka czekolada. W smaku to samo, dużo nut palonych i zbyt duże nachmielonie powoduje że piwo jest ciężkie, trudno się je pije angel77 (3867) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 13, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Botella 66 cl de bierhalle Cortrique tomada en el Kraken 13..10.. 2017. Color negro intenso con bastante espuma beige oscuro persistente. Sabores intensos y suaves cacaos vainillas maderas, ligeros carbonizados y suaves achicorias. Mejora y suaviza bastante al calentar. Tomada después de la oak chocolate y no tiene toques tan secos y amargos finales ni tantos cacaos o vainillas. Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio, fino suave fácil de beber que te deja la boca al final bien engrasada. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda alguna.
