4.1/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
It pours a very thick black with a big, sticky head that's the color of chocolate milk. Not even the edges are highlighted when held up to the lamp. This is DARK with a big head that sticks to everything. This is one damned beautiful beer.
The aroma is full of sweet roasted malt flavors. Chocolate, cappuccino, sweet cream and unsweetened cocoa.
Thick, smooth and chewy. This heavy bodied beer is lusciously smooth. It casually glides across the tongue with flavors of molasses, dark chocolate, coffee, and it's even a bit woody. The flavors are dark, roasted and sweet in the beginning and middle, but it picks up some bitterness towards the end that has a creamy dark chocolate and unsweetened cocoa character. The finish is similar to an incredibly strong, heavily creamed, cappuccino.
Beautiful. Thick. Delicious. Boozy. A great beer!

4.39/5 rDev +4.3%

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.
