look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a year old (2010) 22 oz. bottle into a snifter
A: Pours from the bottle jet black and props up a thick, foamy cappuccino head in the glass. Great head retention and the beer leaves big webs of lace on the glass upon each sip.
S: Big, roasty, and robust. Figs and raisins are the most notable character, underlined by the very roasty aromas of the thick malts.
T: Full bodied maltiness with a the character of a bold cup of french roast coffee. Notes of prunes, lightly burnt toast, and a big and robust roasty finish.
M: Thick and viscous with a moderate level of carbonation, consistent with the style. Borderline chewy with a particular coating character in the mouth. A noticeable warming alcohol doesn't try to hide itself. Smooth and lingering in the finish with a bitter coating punch to the palate.
O: A well done Imperial Stout in my books that strikes a great balance between big flavors and ease of drinking. It does not stress the palate like some other bold Imperial Stouts tend to do but it really makes its statement known that this isn't a beer lacking in malty, roasty character.

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.
