look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours slow and thick with a pitch black color. One inch dark tan head. Nose is smooth and creamed. Not very strong or overpowering. Flavor is thick with an even roasted malt edge. Very sweet tone to it, and the alcohol peeks out a bit with it. Seems a bit too sweet, but it is still even and good. Feel is very good. Creamy and smooth, even though the liquid is thick like most anything else. Drinkable? Well. It is almost TOO thick and almost TOO sweet. Between this and the Oaked Yeti, Ill take the Oak. Even without going back to read my review of the latter, I can still remember the awesome complexities and how overall it kicked ass. This one is good, but when youve got a bigger brother whos more accomplished, it is harder to compete.

12 oz bottled poured into a snifter
A - motor oil black. Minimal dark brown head (as with most RIS) and lacing.
S -dark chocolate, roasted malts, hint of dark fruit, coffee
t - all the yeti's (including expresso and particularly chocolate) have this hint of mint in the taste. Roasted malts are heavy, coffee bitterness is present along with some hops, chocolate is very light. Little bit of alcohol in the finish
m - fairly carbonated for an IS, medium mouthfeel. Just about right.
o - one of my favorite year round imperial stouts. a little more bitterness and bite than some of the other seasonal/special release classics like Zhukov or KBS but something you can find almost anywhere it's one of the best.
