A: The pour is such a dark brown that we’ll call it black. A finger or two worth of tan head sits on top.
S: Lots of roast on the nose with a fair amount of chocolate and coffee. The oak is there and provides some subtle vanilla notes to the beer.
T: The roast and oak character are to the point of astringency. While there is some bitter chocolate and vanilla, the astringent and bitter qualities are just too much.
M: The body is medium with a rather lively carbonation, perhaps a bit much.
D: This was definitely a let down. The oak does not seem to have enhanced this beer at all and it made it sort of tough to drink.
Dense bodied and dark foam. Strong roast flavor and persistent after taste. Gets better as it warms up in the glass. hajsman (342) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle sharing during Hevelka. Probably infected bottle because tasted like shit mostly... Lot of expectations and big disappointment DonGregorio (372) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle shared at tasting. Black beer with rocky brown head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, coffee, wood, some alcohol with strange herbal or mint (!) note. Taste is medium sweet and bitter, with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, wood and again some herbs / mint. Woody, burnt coffee finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. Not bad, but very strange, worse than regular Yeti. MavDunk (103) - - MAY 14, 2017
Pours jet black with tan head. Scent is raisins, malts, chocolate, molasses, and oak. Taste roasted malts, prunes, vanilla, and coffee. Big and boozy. A good imperial stout. Not amazing to me. Andrew196 (1858) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Pours black, slight crimson in the edges, darn tan head, uniform cascading lace. Nose is a remarkable blend of vanilla, wood, coffee, fudge, even cinnamon. Full body, chocolate appears now with the vanilla, coffee bean, fresh roast coffee, sweet lactose, molasses. Excellent!

Pours out a deep black with slight lacing brown head. The aroma is coffee and oak. The taste is complex with a nice coffee taste well balanced with hops and a good bitterness in the finish. bergstaden (2925) - Røros, NORWAY - APR 28, 2017
