Poured into a Pint Glass
Appearance - Pitch black, so black that I can see myself in the reflection of the glass. Very Fluffy Dark Brown 3 Finger Head with excellent retention, and it looks really creamy. The lacing along the sides of the glass is very plentiful and abundant.
Smell - Sweet Chocolate, Piney Hops, Coffee, Caramel, Burnt Malts, all of which have a strong aroma to it. It's also worth noting that for an Imperial Stout, this smells surprisingly hoppy compared to the others which I have had before.
Taste - Chocolate, Coffee, Hops, Roasted Malts, Vanilla, and Burnt Malts. This is a very malty and sweet tasting Imperial Stout and I love it. My only complaint is that the aftertaste is a bit too resiny for my tastes; Everything else is excellent
Mouthfeel - Surprisingly Light albeit a bit syrupy, which makes it feel off for it's style. Luckily the carbonation is light so you can be sure that nothing will get in the way of the flavor and that it is easy to drink.
Overall - This is an excellent Imperial Stout, even with it's minor flaws which are easy to overlook. I'm very eager to get my hands on the other Yeti offerings from Great Divide, because I know if they are anything like this, then I know I'm in for a treat.
